Relationship between uric acid and technique failure in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis: a long-term observational cohort study

Conclusions UA was shown to be associated with all-cause and peritonitis-related technique failure in our study. Patients on CAPD with hyperuricaemia should be closely monitored and strategies of increasing survival on CAPD should be taken.

This report describes the operative technique including omentectomy, placement of a percutaneous stitch between the catheter cuffs, and fibrin glue injection around the catheter. The patient had no catheter-related infections. Laparoscopic-assisted PD catheter placement with chest wall exit site is a safe alternative in patients with any type of abdominal stoma.

In this study, we intended to study the clinical characteristics and patient and technique survival of elderly patients on PD. In this study, data of 148 elderly patients with end-stage renal disease who initiated PD between January 2001 and December 2015 were collected. Baseline clinical characteristics and events during the study period were recorded. Overall patient and technique survival rates of diabetic and non-diabetic elderly patients on PD were analyzed. Around 128 patients who were initiated PD during the study period were included for final analysis. The mean age of the study group was 70.3 ± 5.1 years, and...

CONCLUSIONS: The authors believe a higher local concentration of STS leading to a faster resolution and requiring less frequent injections needs to be further evaluated. Following additional studies, they also propose a greater use of intralesional STS injections in a select set of patients in the future. PMID: 31483755 [PubMed - in process]

This study was to explore their associations in a large PD cohort.MethodsThis retrospective cohort study included incident patients received PD catheter insertion in our center. The primary outcome was the first CV event (non-fatal myocardial infarction, CV death, non-haemorrhagic stroke, or any arterial revascularisation procedure). Secondary outcomes were occurrence of peritonitis, CV mortality, and all-cause mortality.ResultsThis study included 1294 patients, whose mean age was 48.1 years. After adjustment for confounders in Negative binomial regression models, lower LDL-C quartiles were independently associated with a ...
