Online Resources About Kidney Transplant Too Complex Online Resources About Kidney Transplant Too Complex

Online health education materials about transplant options are far too complex for chronic kidney disease patients to make sense of, U.S. researchers say, and that may prevent this group from deciding on the best treatment.Reuters Health Information

AbstractBackgroundTreatment for hyperphosphatemia in chronic kidney disease (CKD) involves dietary control of phosphorus intake, dialysis, and treatment with oral phosphate binders, none of which were approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration in pediatric patients at the time of this study.MethodsThis was a phase 2, multicenter study (NCT01574326) with a 2-week, randomized, placebo-controlled, fixed-dose period (FDP) followed by a 6-month, single-arm, open-label, dose-titration period (DTP), with the aim to evaluate the safety and efficacy of sevelamer carbonate (SC) in hyperphosphatemic pediatric patients with ...

Authors: Shahab O, Golabi P, Younossi ZM Abstract Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection affects many organs in the body, including the liver, kidneys, skin, joints and others. Although the hepatic manifestation of HCV has been widely studied, the extrahepatic manifestaions of HCV have not been fully appreciated. Studies have shown that patients with HCV have a higher risk of chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease, as well as poorer outcomes after kidney transplantation. Given these findings, it is important to screen HCV patients for presence of renal impairement in a timely manner. Current guidelines recom...

Conclusion: Although physiologic reasoning and small series results suggest a benefit for calcium channel blocking agents for allograft protection and sepsis prevention in immunosuppressed patients, we find no clear survival benefit in a large international renal transplant trial.

We report the results of a study of survival, liver and kidney functions, and growth with a median follow‐up of 24 years following liver transplantation in childhood. From 1988 to 1993, 128 children underwent deceased donor liver transplantation (median age: 2.5 years). Twenty‐year patient and graft survival rates were 79% and 64%, respectively. Raised serum aminotransferase and/or γ‐glutamyl transferase activities were present in 42% of survivors after a single transplantation. Graft histology (35 patients) showed signs of chronic rejection in 11 and biliary obstruction in 5. Mean total fibrosis scores were 4....

Although a successful kidney transplant (KTx) improves most of the mineral and bone disorders (MBD) produced by chronic kidney disease (CKD), hyperparathyroidism may persist (pHPT). Current guidelines recommend parathyroidectomy if serum parathormone is persistently elevated 1 year after KTx, because pHPT has been recently associated with poor graft outcomes. However, whether patients with pHPT and adequate renal function are at risk for long-term graft failure is unknown.

CONCLUSIONS: Individuals with a history of lower urinary tract dysfunction had graft and patient survival rates similar to the control group. When appropriately treated, lower urinary tract dysfunction is not a barrier to successful renal transplant. PMID: 29292685 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Piccoli GB, Alrukhaimi M, Liu ZH, Zakharova E, Levin A, World Kidney Day Steering Committee Abstract Chronic kidney disease affects approximately 10% of the world's adult population: it is within the top 20 causes of death worldwide, and its impact on patients and their families can be devastating. World Kidney Day and International Women's Day in 2018 coincide, thus offering an opportunity to reflect on the importance of women's health and specifically their kidney health, on the community, and the next generations, as well as to strive to be more curious about the unique aspects of kidney disease in wome...
