Coronary artery calcification in Korean patients with incident dialysis

Discussion CAC was frequent in patients with incident dialysis, and multiple regression analysis showed that only age was significantly associated with the CAC score. In addition, L‐spine radiography could be a helpful modality for diagnosing CAC in patients with incident dialysis.

Authors: Scheen AJ Abstract Introduction: Sodium-glucose cotransporter type 2 inhibitors (SGLT2is) have a complex relationship with the kidney so that their use in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and diabetic kidney disease (DKD) has long been challenged.Areas covered: SGLT2is in patients with DKD are discussed: renal mechanisms of action, PK/PD characteristics, clinical use in patients with stage 3 DKD, effects on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and albuminuria, cardiovascular and renal outcomes according to renal function, overall and renal safety, SGLT2is new place in updated guidelines.Expert o...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe main objective in this 2nd part is to highlight comorbidities of great clinical importance such as diabetes, anemia, and chronic renal failure, either because of their high prevalence, or because of their relevance to impact on morbidity and mortality, and directly in the treatment of heart failure.Recent FindingsThe prevalence of heart failure will increase 46% from 2012 to 2030, resulting in>  8 million people ≥ 18 years of age. This disease have a large burden of noncardiovascular comorbidities, which may increase the risk of mortality and decrease quality of life. T...

However, when this balance is impaired, oxidative stress develops due to imbalanced redox homeostasis resulting in cellular damage. Oxidative stress is now recognized as a trigger of cellular se...

This study aimed to investigate the relationship between a serum active vitamin D level and lower extremity muscle strength in elderly patients with pre-dialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD). This cross-sectional study included 231 patients with CKD treated conservatively as outpatients. We analyzed patient background factors, including age, sex, body mass index (BMI), intact parathyroid hormone (PTH), phosphorus, calcium, albumin, serum calcitriol level as an indicator of active vitamin D, and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) collected from medical records. As an index of lower extremity muscle strength, the is...

Jayanth BabuAbstractChemiresistive gas sensors play a significant role in human exhaled breath analysis for non-invasive disease diagnosis applications. Ammonia has been considered as one of the prominent biomarkers, which is present in the exhaled breath of persons affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD). In this context, polyvinyl pyrrolidine (PVP) - zinc oxide (ZnO) nanofibers based chemiresistive gas sensor has been developed for the detection of ammonia at r...

CONCLUSION: Most patients were fasted for significantly longer than recommended and pre-hydration was underutilised in patients at high risk of contrast-induced nephropathy. There were no episodes of aspiration with modern contrast agents. Further studies are required to evaluate the need for fasting prior to non-emergency cardiac catheterisation.

Introduction: The sense of "taste ” is a neurosensorial ability with a very important role in food preferences and in the choice of foods. The loss of the gustatory function greatly compromises the quality of life and has a strong impact on social and relational activities. A reduction in flavor recognition occurs physiologically in the elderly subject and it has been associated with various diseases.
