Recent advances in CKD and ESRD: A literature update

Abstract The past year has seen interesting publications in the fields of chronic kidney disease and end stage renal disease. This review highlights some of these important papers and places their findings in the context of clinical care.

Conclusion: The use of active or selective vitamin D analog in these patients decreases total oxidant status and increases total antioxidant status. Also, paricalcitol is as effective as calcitriol in decreasing total oxidant status and increasing total antioxidant status in patients with chronic kidney disease.

AbstractIn a rapidly expanding population of patients with chronic kidney disease, including 2 million people requiring renal replacement therapy, cardiovascular mortality is 15 times greater than the general population. In addition to traditional cardiovascular risk factors, more poorly defined risks related to uraemia and it ’s treatments appear to contribute to this exaggerated risk. In this context, the microcirculation may play an important early role in cardiovascular disease associated with chronic kidney disease. Experimentally the uraemic environment and dialysis have been linked to multiple pathways causing...

This study aimed to examine the association between the mode of dialysis or the values of sclerostin or DKK1 and carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) in ESRD patients. There were 122 HD and 72 PD patients enrolled in this study. By a validated tonometry system, cfPWV was measured and then segregated patients into values of >10 m/s as the high central arterial stiffness (AS) group and values ≤ 10 m/s as the control group. Serum levels of sclerostin and DKK1 were measured using a commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit. Possible risk factors for the development of AS were analyzed by logistic regres...

AbstractSleep disorders in children with chronic kidney disease have been assessed in a limited number of studies. Our aim was to characterize the types of sleep disorders in children on regular hemodialysis and to detect the predictors of sleep efficiency in those children. Forty children and adolescents on regular hemodialysis and another 40 age- and gender-matched control groups were interviewed to answer a questionnaire-based survey, a modified Epworth Sleepiness Scale, to assess excess daytime sleepiness. Also, they underwent an overnight in-laboratory polysomnography to assess total sleep time, sleep efficiency, slee...

CONCLUSIONS: AKb using HB-ePTFE grafts achieved favorable 2-year graft patency. AKb using HB-ePTFE grafts may therefore be an acceptable, highly effective treatment option for femoropopliteal artery lesions. PMID: 32062636 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Supriyadi R, Rakhima F, Gondodiputro RS, Darmawan G Abstract BACKGROUND: the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and dialysis patients is increasing every year in Indonesia. The impact of CKD and dialysis on patient quality of life (QOL) has been recognized as an important outcome measure in the management of CKD. The Kidney Disease Quality of Life (KDQOL-36) has been validated and is widely used as a measure of QOL for CKD and dialysis patients in many countries, but not in Indonesia. The aim of this study is to determine the reliabity and validity of the Indonesian version of KDQOL-36 on hemodialy...

AbstractSodium zirconium cyclosilicate (SZC) [Lokelma™] is a useful oral option for the treatment of hyperkalaemia in adults. As a non-absorbed, non-polymer compound, SZC lowers serum potassium levels by binding potassium in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and promoting faecal potassium excretion. SZC is effective in restoring and maintaining normokalaemia and is generally well tolerated; most adverse events reported in phase  3 clinical trials were manageable without treatment interruption. SZC appears to be effective and generally well tolerated regardless of common factors associated with hyperkalaemia, inclu...

Conclusion Long-acting erythropoiesis-stimulating agents were correlated with higher haemoglobin levels and may be more useful for patients with a low left ventricular mass index at the initiation of haemodialysis.
