CONCLUSION: This analysis provides us with knowledge on those patients who may benefit from an earlier preparation in RRT. We suggest that patients with previous cardiac events, especially with a risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, should start the preparation for RRT even with GFR rates of 20-25ml/min. In spite of the retrospective nature of this study, and taking into account the difficulties of carrying out clinical trials in this population, we propose this suggestion as complementary to the current recommendations for a scheduled start using this technique.

METHODS: We evaluated the prevalence of CKD and its impact on CTO-PCI outcomes in 1979 patients who underwent 2040 procedures b...

The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) plays a key role in the control of blood pressure and fluid homeostasis. Emerging evidence also reveals that hyperactivity of the RAS contributes to skeletal muscle wasting. This review discusses the key role that the RAS plays in skeletal muscle wasting due to congestive heart failure, chronic kidney disease, and ventilator-induced diaphragmatic wasting.

CONCLUSIONS: An elevated RDW is associated with a worse outcome following valve surgery. The predictive ability of the RDW, when assessed by the area under the ROC curve, improved the predictive ability of the EuroSCORE II calculator. PMID: 30207123 [PubMed - in process]

Chronic kidney disease (CKD), including end-stage renal disease (ESRD), is a public health issue worldwide, and is associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. In addition, cardiovascular disease is a major cause of mortality in these patients. Both traditional and nontraditional risk factors associated with CKD can lead to remodeling of the myocardium and blood vessels, thereby resulting in cardiomyopathy, atherosclerosis and arterial stiffness. This can subsequently lead to ischemic heart disease, heart failure, cardiovascular death, rapid renal progression and progression to ESRD. Identifying these risk factor...

AbstractIndividuals with diabetes mellitus exhibit an increased propensity to develop cardiovascular disorders such as coronary artery disease, stroke and heart failure. Over recent decades, numerous cardiovascular outcome trials in individuals with type 2 diabetes have been published, with data showing a reduction of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality by sodium –glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. These results not only provide novel therapeutic options for this high-risk population but also advance our current understanding of cardiovascular risk reduction in diabetes. The current overview article summa...
