However, in patients with chronic kidney disease, the association of sodium levels on postoperative events has never been evaluated. We investigated the impact of preoperative hyponatremia on outcomes after cardiac operation in patients with non–dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease. Primary end points were o...

However, its effects on renal injury and the underlying molecular mechanism have not been understood. The inactive rhomboid protein 2 (iRhom2), also known as A disintegrin and metalloprotease 17 (ADAM17), is a necessary modulator for shedding of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-&a...

CONCLUSIONS: HD significantly improves PWV in patients reaching dry weight. Reduction of fluid excess by ultrafiltration in HD patients may reduce CV mortality by reducing arterial stiffness.RESUMO INTRODU ÇÃO: Em pacientes com doença renal crônica (DRC), toxinas urêmicas e hipervolemia contribuem para aumentar o risco cardiovascular. Nosso objetivo foi determinar o estado de hidratação em pacientes com DRC iniciando hemodiálise (HD) e avaliar os efeitos da correção da hipervolemia sobre o s istema cardiovascular. MÉTODOS: Foram incluídos 52 ...

AbstractSummaryOsteoporosis has become an important health concern even in men. We aimed to analyze its prevalence and associated factors in Korean men. Low socioeconomic status, unhealthy lifestyle, and chronic kidney disease increased the risk. High-risk men even at young age need to evaluate bone mineral density, and proper interventions should be reinforced.PurposeOwing to an increase in the elderly population, osteoporosis and consequent fractures have become important health concerns even in men. We aimed to analyze the prevalence of osteoporosis in Korean men and identify risk factors associated with male osteoporos...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewTo summarize current advances in the understanding and management of heart failure (HF) in patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD).Recent FindingsDiagnosis of HF and treatment of congestion are crucial in the management of patients with advanced CKD to reduce symptoms, preserve organ function, and improve outcomes. Echocardiography and cardiovascular biomarkers may help to differentiate cardiac from non-cardiac components of overhydration. Renal replacement therapy or ultrafiltration may be required to treat congestion. Furthermore, patients with advanced CKD are frequently undertre...

Authors: Zhang X, Chen L Abstract Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are associated with hypoxia, but the effects of hypoxia on the process of angiogenesis in the two diseases are dramatically different. Some of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), such as MMP2 and MMP9, may have a role because they represent the most prominent family of proteinases associated with angiogenesis. In the present study, the differential response of human renal cell cancer cells (786-0), human renal tubular epithelial cells (HK-2) and human microvascular endothelial cells (HMEC-1) to hypoxia with regards to the ex...

Authors: Zhang Y, Hu C, Bian Z, Chen P Abstract There are a lot of controversies pertaining to correctness of timing for the initiation of dialysis in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. The present study was conducted to examine the potential association of initiation timing of dialyses with long-term prognosis in CKD patients. In total, 294 patients confirmed as end-stage renal disease (ESRD) were included as study subjects. According to the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) at initiation time, the patients were classified into four groups based on eGFR: ≥10.5, 8-10.4, 6-8 and
