Siemens (NYSE:SI) Healthineers said today it inked a deal with looking to improve home chronic kidney disease monitoring. Through the deal, the companies will look to offer a home-based alternative to periodic urine testing to monitor kidney function, which requires patients travel to a clinician’s office. Siemens said it will supply urinalysis reagents which will be integrated into’s smartphone-based urinalysis system to provide home testing options to improve access to albumin-to-creatine ratio testing. “Siemens Healthineers has been a leader in urinalysis testing for 75 ...

AbstractThe EUROASPIRE surveys (EUROpean Action on Secondary Prevention through Intervention to Reduce Events) demonstrated that most European coronary patients fail to achieve lifestyle, risk factor and therapeutic targets. Here we report on the 2-year incidence of hard cardiovascular (CV) endpoints in the EUROASPIRE IV cohort. EUROASPIRE IV (2012 –2013) was a large cross-sectional study undertaken at 78 centres from selected geographical areas in 24 European countries. Patients were interviewed and examined at least 6 months following hospitalization for a coronary event or procedure. Fatal and non-fatal CV ev...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWe will review non-renal-related mechanisms of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) pathophysiology.Recent FindingsFGF23 production and metabolism may be affected by many bone, mineral, and kidney factors. However, it has recently been demonstrated that other factors, such as iron status, erythropoietin, and inflammation, also affect FGF23 production and metabolism. As these non-mineral factors are especially relevant in the setting of chronic kidney disease (CKD), they may represent emerging determinants of CKD-associated elevated FGF23 levels. Moreover, FGF23 itself may promote anemia and inflamma...

Authors: Heras Benito M, Fernández-Reyes Luis MJ Abstract Chronic kidney disease is common in people>65years of age. The development and improvement of dialysis techniques has allowed its generalisation to the entire population, when there is a situation of terminal nephropathy, without limit of use due to chronological age. Decision making in elderly patients with advanced chronic kidney disease is complex: in addition to renal parameters, both comorbidity and the presence of geriatric syndromes must be considered. This review addresses the management of information, the decision making of different trea...

Conclusion: Diabetes was found to be a bigger cause (62.3%) of CKD than what has been reported thus far in India. At presentation association of diabetic-CKD with HT was recorded higher (78.7%) in India. Hence use of the syndrome "DHKD", (complex of diabetes, hypertension and kidney disease) is justifiable. Our study shows 54.4% of diabetic patients attending medicine OPD were uninvestigated by either physician or GP for CKD because urine albumin and serum creatinine tests were lacking. Thus, progression to CKD in many patients went unnoticed. Syndromic diagnosis of "DHKD" therefore in our view is impor...

The incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) has reached pandemic proportions across the world. Occlusive arterial disease causing critical limb ischemia and sepsis in the CKD patient is a huge clinical challenge often culminating in major amputation or mortality. Successful revascularization of these patients is challenging with added limitations due to impaired renal function, difficulties in contrast-enhanced imaging, heavily calcified arteries, and overall comorbid status.
