Polycystic kidney disease and kidney transplantation.

CONCLUSION: Pretransplant management of ADPKD is challenging. A conservative strategy should be promoted to avoid anuria (and its metabolic complications) and to preserve a functioning low urinary tract and quality of life. When native nephrectomy should be performed, surgery remains the gold standard but renal arterial embolization may be a safe option due to its low morbidity.

Physicians are being murdered for not prescribing opioids I would argue that a large portion of what we are truly treating with chronic opioid therapy is psychological. www.kevinmd.com "Why is it that I as a double board certified pain physician have to consider whether or not I should have a firearm in my office to protect myself or my staff?

Authors: Golchin A, Shams F, Kangari P, Azari A, Hosseinzadeh S Abstract Cellular-based therapies have drawn a great deal of attention thanks to their regenerative medicine approaches to treat incurable diseases and specific injuries. In this regard, injectable cell delivery systems could actualize the therapeutically beneficial outcomes of cell-based therapeutic products. These systems have found considerable clinical uses. Hence, the recent studies have focused on developing injectable bio-constructs to protect transplanted cells during delivery and stimulating endogenous regeneration through interactions of thes...

We report the case of a 32-year-old male diagnosed with TSC2/PKD1 contiguous gene syndrome, presenting with tuberous sclerosis (TS) and autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease simultaneously. He progressed to end-stage renal disease and received a kidney transplant at the age of 12. The native kidneys presented angiomyolipomas (AML), which are common benign tumours in patients with TS. Seventeen years after transplantation, he presented with abdominal pain, anaemia and a retroperitoneal haematoma, the latter caused by renal AML bleeding. Selective embolisation was performed. Our patient could have benefited from the a...
