Authors: Bucharles SGE, Wallbach KKS, Moraes TP, Pecoits-Filho R Abstract Hypertension (blood pressure> 140/90 mm Hg) is very common in patients undergoing regular dialysis, with a prevalence of 70-80%, and only the minority has adequate blood pressure (BP) control. In contrast to the unclear association of predialytic BP recordings with cardiovascular mortality, prospective studies showed that interdialytic BP, recorded as home BP or by ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in hemodialysis patients, associates more closely with mortality and cardiovascular events. Although BP is measured frequently in the dialys...

We used electronic health records (EHRs) data from 5658 ambulatory chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with hypertension and prescribed antihypertensive therapy to examine antihypertensive drug prescribing patterns, blood pressure (BP) control, and risk factors for resistant hypertension (RHTN) in a real ‐world setting. Two‐thirds of CKD patients and three‐fourths of those with proteinuria were prescribed guideline‐recommended renoprotective agents including an angiotensin‐converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) or an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB); however, one‐third were not prescribed an ACEI or ARB. CKD pa...

Abstract CKD is common and frequently complicated with hypertension both predialysis and in ESKD. As a major modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease in this high-risk population, treatment of hypertension in CKD is important. We review the mechanisms and indications for the major classes of antihypertensive drugs, including angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers, β-adrenergic blocking agents, dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers, thiazide diuretics, loop diuretics, mineralocorticoid receptor blockers, direct vasodilators, and centrally acting α-agonists....

ConclusionPatiromer decreased serum K+ through 52 weeks in patients with hyperkalemia, chronic kidney disease, and heart failure with EF>40%, all of whom were taking RAAS inhibitors. These post-hoc results require prospective evaluation, but suggest that patiromer allows control of hyperkalemia in heart failure patients with EF>40% on RAAS inhibitors.ResultOverall, 55 out of 306 randomized patients had heart failure with EF>40% (100% Caucasian, 75% male, 69% ≥65 years of age). Mean (SD) EF was 48 (7)% and mean (SD) eGFR was 41 (13) mL/min/1.73 m² at baseline. All patients had hypertension (mean BP 155/83 m...

ConclusionsThe prevalence of hypertension in patients with breast cancer raises with age, and presence of comorbidities, including chronic kidney disease. Hypertension should be treated promptly to prevent cardiovascular complications during oncological therapy.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewUrinary tract infections (UTI) are common among children. In the past 20  years, a number of key trials have substantially changed practice, in addition to clarifying the natural history of children managed expectantly. It is now clear that among children with normal kidneys at presentation, chronic kidney disease and hypertension are rare. Improved antenatal ultrasound now detects most significant abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract, particularly severe hypodysplasia, which is often associated with high-grade vesico-ureteric reflux (VUR). This review aims to summarize the evidence-b...

This study developed an amino acid-based metabolic panel and sought to see whether this panel could add diagnostic and prognostic value to currently used B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) measurements. Mass spectrometry and ultra-performance liquid chromatography were performed on 1288 participants, including 129 normal controls and 712 patients at HF stages A to D in the initial cohort and 447 stage C patients in the validation cohort. Patients were followed up for composite events (death/HF-related rehospitalization). Histidine, ornithine, and phenylalanine were 3 metabolites found strongly significant to identify patient...
