Authors: Klug E, Raal FJ, Marais AD, Smuts CM, Schamroth C, Jankelow D, Blom DJ, Webb DA Abstract South Africa (SA) is home to a heterogeneous population with a wide range of cardiovascular risk factors. Cholesterol reduction in combination with aggressive management of modifiable risk factors, including nutrition, physical activity, blood pressure and smoking, can help to reduce and prevent morbidity and mortality in individuals who are at increased risk of cardiovascular events. This updated consensus guide to management of dyslipidaemia in SA is based on the updated European Society of Cardiology and European At...

Conclusion: Our findings provide evidence that a high prevalence of hyperuricemia occurs in hypertensive patients from central and east Europe. The data also show that gender-related differences in the association between SUA and cardionephrometabolic variables exist. This is also the case for the relationships between SUA and CKD.

Background: Beta cells are central in the pathophysiology of diabetes, since their functional adaptation maintains euglycemia in insulin-resistant individuals and beta cell dysfunction is required for the clinical picture of frank diabetes. The pathophysiological mechanisms driving compensation and decompensation are incompletely understood and little is known about the influence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) on beta cell function.Summary: In compensated insulin resistance, beta cells enhance their function at all stages in the stimulus-secretion coupling cascade, from the most proximal membrane depolarization to the int...

Authors: Messa P, Alfieri CM Abstract Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHP) is a frequent complication of kidney diseases. At variance with all the other forms of SHP, which are compensatory conditions, renal SHP has many pathogenetic peculiarities, which have been only in part defined. Furthermore, in the long course of chronic kidney diseases (CKD), SHP sometimes transforms into a hypercalcemic condition resembling the autonomous form of hyperparathyroidism (tertiary hyperparathyroidism; THP). The clinical consequences of SHP in CKD patients are manifold, encompassing not only bone and mineral disorders, but also o...

Authors: Lascasas JMSS, Fonseca I, Malheiro J, Santos S, Campos A, Castro A, Moreira C, Correia S, Beirão I, Lobato L, Cabrita A Abstract INTRODUCTION: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an independent risk factor for several unfavorable outcomes including cardiovascular disease (CVD), particularly in the elderly, who represent the most rapidly growing segment of the end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) population. Portugal has the highest European unadjusted incidence and prevalence rates of ESKD. In 2012, we started to follow a cohort of elderly CKD patients, we describe their baseline characteristics, risk profil...

Regarding the insertion of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters in patients with recurrent pulmonary embolism during the first 3 months after an index pulmonary embolism, those who received IVC filters and those who did not were the same age and similar in gender.1 Drs. Nazare and Goldstein suggest those who received IVC filters and those who did not should have been matched for a history of gastrointestinal or intracranial bleeds, chronic kidney disease, hypercoagulable states and use of antiplatelet agents.
