We describe an adult man with nephrotic syndrome and no systemic manifestations of nail-patella syndrome at the time of his initial kidney biopsy. His kidney biopsy was initially interpreted as a form of segmental sclerosis with unusual fibrillar deposits. At the time of consideration for kidney transplantation, a family history was notable for end-stage renal disease in 3 generations. Subsequent reanalysis of the initial biopsy showed infiltration of the lamina densa by type III collagen fibrils, and molecular studies identified a pathogenic variant in one allele of LMX1B (a guanine to adenine substitution at nucleoide 73...

This article reviews the clinical case for a special emphasis on this transition period, reviews published literature regarding prior transitional care programs, and proposes a novel iteration of the first 30 days of dialysis care: the transitional care unit (TCU). The goal of a TCU is to improve awareness of all aspects of renal replacement therapy, including modalities, access, transplantation options, and nutritional and psychosocial aspects of the disease. This enables patients to make truly informed decisions regarding their care. The TCU model is open to all patients, including incident patients with end-stage renal ...

ConclusionsSeveral modifiable and nonmodifiable factors are associated with early technique failure in PD. Targeted interventions should be considered in high-risk patients to avoid the consequences of an unplanned transfer to hemodialysis therapy or death.

CONCLUSIONMany ureteral inguinal hernias reported in the literature have been on renal transplant patients, while rarely on native kidneys. This case suggests no inguinal hernia repair is routine. Awareness of this anomaly is important, to avoid ureteral injury during herniorrhaphy.

Olorundare, Yewande Alimi, Dorry L. Segev, Jacqueline Garonzik-WangAbstractBackgroundKidney transplant recipients (KTR) are at increased risk of requiring cholecystectomy. Given physiologic impacts of renal replacement and lifelong immunosuppression, cholecystectomy may be riskier in this unique population.MethodsUsing the National Inpatient Sample, we compared 7,318 KTR to 5,341,427 non-transplant recipients following cholecystectomy from 2000-2011, and i...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe choice of optimum transplant in a patient with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and chronic kidney disease stage V (CKD V) is not clear. The purpose of this review was to investigate this in more detail —in particular the choice between a simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPKT) and living donor kidney transplantation (LDKT), including recent evidence, to aid clinicians and their patients in making an informed choice in their care.Recent FindingsAnalyses of large databases have recently shown SPKT to have better survival rates than a LDKT in the long-term, despite an early incre...
