Gastric adenocarcinoma (GC) is a recently reported cancer risk in Western patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).1,2 Most GCs in these FAP patients occur in an area of polyposis in the proximal gastric body or fundus.1 We previously demonstrated that Western FAP patients with GC were more likely than were non-GC FAP control patients to have high-risk endoscopic and histologic features, including a carpeting of proximal gastric polyposis, polypoid mounds of proximal polyps, large solitary polyps, and high-risk histologic features (pyloric gland adenoma, tubular adenoma, and fundic gland polyps with high-grade dysplasia).

AbstractPurpose of ReviewLupus nephritis is a frequent complication of systemic lupus erythematosus and is more common and severe in children. This is a disease of the immune system characterized by T cell, B cell, and complement activation, as well as immune complex formation and deposition. The introduction of steroids and later cyclophosphamide transformed lupus nephritis from a fatal to a treatable condition. However, the standard therapies currently used for treatment carry significant toxicity and chronic kidney disease still remains a far too frequent outcome. To address these issues, we will review current and emer...

In conclusion, AA genotype may be a protective factor against CKD susceptibility in Caucasians. AG genotype may be a risk factor for CKD risk in Cauca sians. However, more studies are needed in the future.

ABSTRACT Objective: Chronic kidney disease is characterized by progressive and irreversible loss of kidney function. The impact of this disease on oral health also presents controversial results. The aim of the study was to determine oral health conditions and oral symptoms of patients with Chronic kidney disease undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: A cross-sectional study on a population with chronic renal failure was performed. Anamnesis and oral examination, decayed, miss and filled teeth (DMFT) index, community periodontal index, simplified oral hygiene index (OHI-S) and gingival index were conducted. Data were processed ...

BurganosAbstractClassic hemodialysis only provides a limited removal of protein bound uremic toxins (PBUT) in patients with chronic kidney disease. A bioartificial kidney device, BAK, composed of a living cell monolayer of conditionally immortalized proximal tubule epithelial kidney cells (ciPTEC) cultured of hollow fiber polymeric membrane can remove protein bound uremic toxins from the blood in combination with classic hemodialysis. The development and clinical implemen...

A 59-year-old man underwent EMR of a 1-cm sessile polyp at the gastric antrum. He had a history of coronary artery disease, chronic kidney disease (creatinine, 460 μmol/L), and compensated liver cirrhosis (platelet count, 144 × 109/L; prothrombin time, 14 s; international normalized ratio, 1.35). He took clopidogrel, which was discontinued 1 week before EMR. We used the inject-and-cut EMR technique and injected the submucosa with 5 mL of saline solution. A small nonexpanding purplish bulge developed after injection (A).

CONCLUSIONS: The overall rate of adenomatous findings on colonoscopy was higher among patients with pretransplant end-stage renal disease than in the general population, as shown in other studies. Age, sex, dialysis vintage up to 3 years, and hypertensive renal failure were associated with adenomatous polyps of the colon in this study population. Because adenomatous polyp rates are high in patients with chronic kidney disease who are undergoing transplant evaluation and colonoscopic findings do not appear to delay transplant evaluations or listing rates, screening colonoscopies should be encouraged.

Abstract Previous studies have shown a higher prevalence of malignancy in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of adenomatous colon polyps (ACP) as they occur in subjects with DM and coexisting CKD. This is a retrospective cohort study of patients with DM (n=565) who had undergone colonoscopy between 2000-2010. The cohort was further bifurcated into those with CKD (n=296) and those with normal renal function (n=269). Presence or absence of ACP was measured in both groups. Concentrations of serum parathyroid hormone (PTH),...
