Conclusion: Image registration applied to dynamic time series correlated with structural renal changes and should be further explored as a tool for invasive measurements of arteriosclerosis. Significance: Under the assumption that the proposed framework can be further developed in terms of sensitivity and specificity, it can provide clinicians with a non-invasive tool of high spatial coverage available for characterization of arteriosclerosis and potentially other pathological changes observed in chronic kidney disease.

Conclusions: Bariatric surgery increased miR 192 and miR 200 urinary levels, key anti-fibrotic microRNAs that could contribute to a renal-protective mechanism and may be of value as urinary biomarkers following surgery. These findings suggest that urinary microRNAs may represent potential novel biomarkers for obesity-associated renal function.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewHypertension and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are inextricably linked. The causal nature of the relationship is bidirectional. This relationship holds when blood pressure is assessed in the clinic and outside the clinic with home and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Patients with CKD are more likely to have high-risk hypertension phenotypes, such as masked and sustained hypertension, and are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this review is to describe the increased prevalence of masked hypertension in patients with CKD and then describe the increased risk for target ...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewCardiorenal syndrome (CRS), defined as concomitant heart and kidney disease, has been a focus of attention for nearly a decade. As more patients survive severe acute and chronic heart and kidney diseases, CRS has emerged as an “epidemic” of modern medicine. Significant advances have been made in unraveling the complex mechanisms that underlie CRS based on classification of the condition into five pathophysiologic subtypes. In types 1 and 2, acute or chronic heart disease results in renal dysfunction, while in types 3 and 4, acute or chronic kidney diseases are the inciting factors f...

Conclusions: In addition to etiological factors, great importance was assigned to aspects related to the health system response, including service delivery approaches, human resources, funding, and occupational and environmental aspects. PMID: 31093042 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: Renal patients with anaemia could benefit from an endoscopic study due to their high prevalence of gastrointestinal lesions, particularly adenomatous polyps and colorectal cancer, which are more common in those over 50 years of age with CKD stages 3-5.

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.
