Conclusions: The severity of AKI and the need for RRT were risk factors for mortality and dependence on dialysis. Antecedents of CKD seem to be associated with a poor renal outcome following an AKI episode. Starting RRT had an impact on the clinical decision to enroll these patients into palliative care.Nephron

Authors: Renda R Abstract BACKGROUND: Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) have been defined in 20 to 50% of all fetal anomalies. The aim of this study was to determine the demographic and clinical characteristics of such patients, as well as to describe the outcome and risk factors that affect the prognosis. METHODS: The analysis investigated retrospective data from 303 patients diagnosed with CAKUT between January 2015 and April 2017. Demographic data, clinical history, diagnosis, investigations, disease outcomes, and treatment procedures were evaluated. RESULTS: A total of 303 chi...

Authors: Grande D, Gioia MI, Terlizzese P, Iacoviello M Abstract Kidney disease is commonly found in heart failure (HF) patients. They share many risk factors and common pathophysiological pathways which often lead to mutual dysfunction. Both haemodynamic and non-haemodynamic mechanisms are involved in the development of renal impairment in heart failure patients. Moreover, the presence of a chronic kidney disease is a significant independent predictor of worse outcome in chronic as well as in acute decompensated HF. As a consequence, an accurate evaluation of renal function plays a key role in the management of HF...

Conclusion: Mitochondria-targeted antioxidants may attenuate Aldo-infused renal injury by inhibiting MtD, the Nlrp3 inflammasome, and ERSin vivo. Therefore, targeting mtROS might be an effective strategy for preventing CKD.Cell Physiol Biochem 2017;44:741 –750

We report the successful use of ceftolozane/tazobactam (C/T) to treat a pulmonary exacerbation in a 35 year old female, post lung transplant, with cystic fibrosis (CF), malnutrition, chronic kidney disease, and multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection (MDR PSA). Given the complexity of the clinical profile, we measured drug levels of C/T during treatment of her current exacerbation to determine pharmacokinetics. The patient achieved an estimated ceftolozane peak of 174.1 μg/mL and trough of 9.2 μg/mL. Serum half-life was found to be slightly shorter than previously reported in normal subjects, (2.3 hr. v...

Conclusions: Cerebral blood flow velocities were not affected by viscosity and nitric oxide levels, suggesting that cerebral circulation has the ability to make adaptive modulation. The metabolism of nitric oxide levels needs further investigation and studies in patients with chronic renal disease. PMID: 29151320 [PubMed]

Conclusion: CYLD inhibits post-transcriptional regulation of RIG-I and MDA5 expression following TLR3 activation in MCs. CYLD may be involved in the pathogenesis of CKD, especially pathogenesis of LN.Kidney Blood Press Res 2017;42:942 –950

Authors: Milojevic M, Head SJ, Mack MJ, Mohr FW, Morice MC, Dawkins KD, Holmes DR, Serruys PW, Kappetein AP Abstract AIMS: To investigate short-term and 5-year follow-up results from patients randomized to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with paclitaxel-eluting stents in the SYNTAX trial, focusing on patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS AND RESULTS: Baseline glomerular filtration rate estimates (eGFR) were available in 1638 patients (PCI=852 and CABG=786). The Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes threshold was used to define staging of CKD. A...
