Lung Dysfunction and Mortality in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

Conclusion: Lung dysfunction and in particular restrictive lung dysfunction associates with degree of renal function impairment and presence of comorbidities, and is an independent predictor of increased mortality in CKD patients.Kidney Blood Press Res 2018;43:522 –535

End-stage kidney disease is the last stage of chronic kidney disease when the kidneys stop functioning properly. Without sufficient kidney function, waste products begin to build up in a person's blood, causing a variety of symptoms. In this article, learn about the causes and treatment of end-stage kidney disease.

Conclusions This study confirms the association between patient-level factors and SMM. It identifies patient-level factors as the major driver of between-hospital variation in SMM. Efforts to improve maternal outcomes should target patient-level factors.

Authors: Poveda García MI, Del Pino Y Pino MD, Alarcón Rodriguez R, Rodelo-Haad C, Parrón Carreño T Abstract INTRODUCTION: We aimed to assess the effectiveness of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) and subclinical target organ damage parameters for diagnosis of resistant hypertension (RH). METHODS: We assessed demographic and anthropometric variables, the incidence of cardiovascular events and subclinical target organ damage (n=112). We also studied the relationship between these variables and the ABPM results. RESULTS: Of the 112 patients referred from primary care with...

Sleep disorders, chronic pain, and fatigue have been long-standing torments in most patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). In this review, we attempted to explore whether these nontraditional cardiovascular risk factors are associated with increased mortality in patients with CKD.

Non valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) is highly prevalent among chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients in whom it portends increased risk for subsequent stroke or systemic thromboembolic events. For these high risk patients oral anticoagulation is recommended, after proper assessment of both thromboembolic and bleeding risk is accurately ascertained.However, current NVAF risk scores are inadequate for use in CKD subjects, since they do not take into account the occurrence and the degree of renal function impairment.

Authors: Kim HJ, Oh YN, Ju MH, Kim JB, Jung SH, Chung CH, Lee JW, Choo SJ Abstract Background: We reviewed our experience with on-pump beating (OPB) heart coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) to evaluate the impacts of obviating aortic cross-clamping and cardioplegic arrest on clinical outcomes compared with conventional CABG (C-CABG). Methods: Between 2006 and 2012, elective isolated cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB)-assisted CABG was consecutively performed in 645 patients (mean patient age 63.3±9.1 years, 471 women) with 254 (39.4%) undergoing OPB-CABG and 391 (60.6%) undergoing C-CABG. The early and lon...
