Abstract Urologic causes of end-stage renal disease are estimated between 25% and 40% of causes. The goal of renal transplantation in chronic kidney disease patients is to provide renal replacement therapy with less morbidity, better quality of life, and improved overall survival compared with dialysis. A patient's urologic history can be a significant source of problems related to infections, recurrence of disease, and surgical complications. Many of the urologic risks are modifiable. Proper evaluation and management can mitigate the potential problems after transplantation, and these patients with complex urolog...

AbstractPurposeElective hip or knee replacement is an optimal, standardised orthopaedic surgical procedure. The influence of chronic kidney disease, defined as an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 15 –45 ml/min/1.73 m2 body surface area (BSA) (KDIGO stage G3a-G4), on the duration of hospitalisation, perioperative decrease in haemoglobin (Hb) levels, and transfusion rates after orthopaedic procedures has not been fully clarified. Our study, therefore, aimed to evaluate the impact of chronic kidney disease on the previously mentioned variables.MethodsWe conducted a retrospective multicentre analy...

AbstractPurposeThe aim of the current study was to evaluate the association between a decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and accidental falling in elderly patients who visited the day clinic of the department of geriatric medicine of the University of Medical Center Utrecht (UMCU).Study designA cross-sectional analysis with people aged ≥ 65 years of the Utrecht Cardiovascular Cohort was performed. Patients were stratified into different stages of kidney disease (

Authors: Quintos A, Naranjo M, Kelly C, Quan SF, Sharma S Abstract PURPOSE: The HoSMed Database recently demonstrated a high prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in hospitalized obese patients. Based on a long-term follow-up, this study showed an improved survival among patients who were adherent with the therapy. In this post-hoc analysis we explore the characteristics, associations, and mortality outcome of OSA in the African American (AA) population. METHODS: These subset analyses included obese AA patients screened in the hospital as high-risk for OSA. Stepwise logistic regression analysis was used t...

This study investigated the association between chronic HBV infection and CKD in a nationwide multicenter study. Methods: A total of 265,086 subjects who underwent health-check examinations in 33 hospitals from January 2015 to December 2015 were enrolled. HBV surface antigen (HBsAg) positive cases (n = 10,048), and age- and gender-matched HBsAg negative controls (n = 40,192) were identified. CKD was defined as a glomerular filtration rate (GFR)

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewThis review addresses clinical challenges of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in patients with chronic kidney disease and renal transplant recipients.Recent FindingsProphylactic antiviral therapy with nucleos(t)ide analogues is key to prevent HBV reactivation in renal transplant recipients. In addition, attaining adequate immunity following vaccination against HBV may permit transplantation of renal grafts from donors with evidence of prior HBV infection. The role of nucleos(t)ide analogues for treatment of recurrent or de novo HBV infection in renal transplant recipients is well established a...

Albuminuria, an early marker of chronic kidney disease (CKD), is one of the major risk factor for cardiovascular events [1,2] and overt nephropathy [3,4]. Undetected or untreated albuminuria increases the risk of CKD, being the clinical course of albuminuria usually progressive [5,6].
