CONCLUSION: Hospitalization or death was not influenced by the type of RO, Al accumulation, or TMV classification. An elevated prevalence of osteoporosis and Al accumulation was detected. PMID: 31967202 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Omega ‐3 (n‐3) fatty acids have beneficial cardiovascular effects, perhaps also in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. We measured fatty acids (HPLC‐MS lipidomics) in all components of the circulating blood. Our data demonstrate significant changes in fatty acid signatures between healthy persons and CKD patients. However, dialysis treatment per se does not appear to be responsible for a lower omega‐3 index in CKD patients. AbstractOmega ‐3 (n‐3) fatty acids have beneficial cardiovascular effects, perhaps also in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. A low omega‐3 index is an independent cardiovascular ri...

AbstractThe immunoglobulin (Ig) D type is a rare variant of multiple myeloma (MM), that accounts for 1 –2% of all cases. Compared to the more common types of MM, IgD MM is known to have more severe symptoms at presentation, and a poorer prognosis. A woman was admitted to our hospital for severe acute kidney disease and disorder (AKD) and back pain, and was started on hemodialysis. The renal biopsy revealed light chain cast nephropathy. She was diagnosed with IgD-λ MM based on Bence-Jones protein expression and high IgD serum levels, and started bortezomib therapy with plasma exchange (PE). After three sessions...

Although our Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study reported a relatively slow international decrease of hepatitis C virus (HCV) prevalence and incidence in hemodialysis (HD) units from 1996 to 20121 (before the direct-acting antiviral era), Huang et  al. now report their direct-acting antiviral–based elimination of HCV from a single HD unit in Taiwan.2 Such eradication of HCV will reduce the clinical burden associated with HCV infection. In addition, HCV eradication should prevent HCV nosocomial transmission.

Majernikova Effective vascular access (VA) is an essential condition for providing hemodialysis, affecting patients’ health outcomes. We aim to explore how health literacy (HL) as a non-clinical factor is associated with the decision-making process regarding VA type selection. Using data from 20 dialysis centers across Slovakia (n = 542, mean age = 63.6, males = 60.7%), the association of HL with type of VA (arteriovenous fistula (AVF) vs. central venous catheter (CVC)) was analyzed using a logistic regression model adjusted for sociodemographic characteristics and comorbidity. Sociodemographic data and da...

CONCLUSION: The hemodiafiltration with endogenous infusion system is a new dialysis technique that combines diffusion, convection, and adsorption processes. It allows for extensive solute removal, including protein-bound uremic toxins and some pro-inflammatory cytokines, but does not cause nutrient loss and inflammatory response during the treatment. Although the effect after a single hemodiafiltration with endogenous infusion session is limited, it may be improved by repeated and long-term treatment.

Abstract RATIONALE: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients have high annual mortality mainly due to cardiovascular causes. The acute effects of obstructive and central sleep apnea on cardiac function in ESRD patients have not been determined. We therefore tested, in patients with ESRD, the hypotheses that (1) sleep apnea induces deterioration in cardiac function overnight and (2) attenuation of sleep apnea severity by ultrafiltration (UF) attenuates this deterioration. METHODS: At baseline, ESRD patients, on conventional hemodialysis, with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF)>45% had polysomnography ...

The objectives of the conservative treatment for chronic kidney disease are to slow down the progression of kidney dysfunction, treat complications (anemia, bone diseases, cardiovascular diseases), vaccination for hepatitis B, and preparation for kidney replacement therapy.

Authors: Wang Z, Gong Y, Fan F, Yang F, Qiu L, Hong T, Huo Y Abstract Objectives: To evaluate the optimal revascularization strategy for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD) in the drug-eluting stent (DES) era.Methods: One hundred and twelve patients with ESRD treated with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were enrolled from 2007 to 2017. All patients were dialysis-dependent, of which 26 received CABG and 86 underwent PCI. The primary endpoint was all-cause mortality. Secondary endpoints were major adverse cardiovascular even...
