Authors: Godman B, Fadare J Abstract Drs Godman and Fadare review the paper by Mares-Garcia and colleagues in Spain regarding the extent of non-guideline recommended prescribing (NGRP) of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) in ambulatory care. NGRP of PPIs is an increasing public health concern given the implications of overuse of PPIs on infection rates, osteoporosis and chronic kidney disease as well as increasing polypharmacy rates. Costs are less of an issue especially where there are low prices for generic PPIs; the main focus is on improving the quality of PPI prescribing. Encouragingly, Mares-Garcia and colleagues...

ABSTRACT AimThere is limited available knowledge regarding health‐related quality of life (HRQoL) in older patients with chronic kidney disease. We aimed to describe HRQoL in renal transplant candidates 65 years or older at transplant acceptance, and during the first year on the waiting list.. MethodsA nationwide prospective observational study in Norway was conducted. HRQoL was evaluated at baseline (wait listing) and after 6 and 12 months using the patient self‐reported Kidney Disease and Quality of Life Short form version 1.3. Intra‐individual scores at different times were evaluated. Generic HRQoL was compared wi...

ObjectivesTo investigate the relationship between chronic kidney disease and primary non‐muscle‐invasive bladder cancer. MethodsDisease outcomes were analyzed in 418 patients treated with transurethral resection for primary non‐muscle‐invasive bladder cancer, and were correlated to traditional risk factors as well as chronic kidney disease stage according to estimated glomerular filtration rate: ≥60 (G1–2), 45–59 (G3a) or

AbstractCardiovascular disease, as the leading cause of patient death with chronic kidney disease, could be predicted by carotid atherosclerosis. The aim of the present study was to evaluate a possible relationship between serum soluble tumor necrosis factor-like weak inducer of apoptosis (sTWEAK) and Vitamin D levels with mean right/left carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT), in the hemodialysis (HD) patients. In this cross-sectional study, serums were obtained from 50 stable chronic HD patients and 39 healthy controls. The serum levels of sTWEAK, Vitamin D, intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) in both groups, and cIMT were ...

ConclusionsPositive expression of sclerostin in the radial artery media layer was related to high serum sclerostin levels. Sclerostin may act as both a local and systemic regulator involved in vascular calcification.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Patients with metabolic syndrome (MetS) have a 2.6-fold greater risk of incident chronic kidney disease (CKD). The primary goal of this study was to assess the prevalence of MetS in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) who are on hemodialysis (HD) and the impact of MetS presence on HD-related outcomes. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study conducted in the Dialysis Center, King Abdulaziz Specialist Hospital, Taif, Saudi Arabia. It was conducted among ESRD patients that attended the Dialysis Center between August 2013 and September 2016. We excluded patients on peritoneal dialysis and those

ConclusionsA new nomogram model for predicting perioperative major adverse cardiac events in patients who had colorectal carcinoma surgery was established in this study. When the total score is>83, patients undergoing colorectal carcinoma surgery should be considered at high risk of perioperative major adverse cardiac events.

OBJECTIVE Although early trials suggested that intensive glycemic targets reduce the number of complications with diabetes, contemporary trials indicate no cardiovascular benefit and potentially higher mortality risk. As patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) transitioning to treatment with dialysis were excluded from these studies, the optimal glycemic level in this population remains uncertain. We hypothesized that glycemic status, defined by hemoglobin A1c (HbA­­1c) and random glucose levels, in the pre–end-stage renal disease (ESRD) period is associated with higher 1-year post-ESRD mortality ...
