Conclusion: In PD patients, expression of peritoneal TJ proteins can be estimated from the dialysis effluent and may be used as novel peritoneal biomarkers. PMID: 31724477 [PubMed - in process]

We present the case of a man on continuous cycler peritoneal dialysis with disabling fatigue and moderate restless legs syndrome (RLS). Actigraphy demonstrated excessive nocturnal movement. Unattended home polysomnography, performed during his regular peritoneal dialysis, confirmed frequent nocturnal periodic limb movements with disturbed sleep. Treatment with low dose pramipexole led to improved RLS and marked improvement in his energy. Clinicians caring for patients with ESRD should have a low threshold for objective sleep assessment given that sleep disorders are common, disabling and eminently amenable to treatment.Cit...

ABSTRACTBackgroundTrends and clinical factors associated with prescribing choices for oral P2Y12 inhibitors (P2Y12-I) remain unknown for patients on chronic dialysis, i.e., with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).MethodsFrom 2011 –2014 U.S. Renal Data System registry, we identified 36,542 ESRD patients who received new prescriptions for P2Y12-I (median age 64.0 years and 54% males). Of the cohort, 93% were receiving hemodialysis and 7% on peritoneal dialysis. We analyzed trends and investigated clinical factors associated with specific P2Y12-I prescribed.ResultsClopidogrel was prescribed for 95%, prasugrel for 3%, and ti...

In this study, our aim was to verify whether dialysis type determined outcomes on the pancreas graft and whether dialysis type was a risk factor for graftectomy or recipient death. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our study group included 44 simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplant patients. Analyzed parameters included type and duration of dialysis treatment, age, sex, long-term pancreas graft survival and patient survival, overall mortality, and number of graftectomies. RESULTS: Of 44 patients, 3 (7%) required a graftectomy. Mortality rate of the group was 5%. Of 44 patients, 33 had hemodialysis and 11 had peritoneal ...

We present a female case with congenital cataracts, severe intellectual impairment, sensorineural hearing loss, and renal tubular dysfunction as Lowe syndrome. A 9-year-old Japanese girl visited our hospital due to prolonged proteinuria. Her renal biopsy revealed diffuse mesangium proliferation, sclerosis and dilatation of renal tubules, and mild IgA deposition in the mesangial region. Furthermore, she had congenital cataracts, severe intellectual impairment, and sensorineural hearing loss. Genetic screening did not identify mutations of theORCL gene encoding inositol polyphosphate 5-phosphatase (IPP-5P) (46 XX, female). H...

This study aimed to determine whether hemodialysis is associated with vitreous haemorrhage in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy. These results suggest that hemodialysis therapy does not seem to be a significant risk for vitreous haemorrhage in proliferative diabetic retinopathy patients. AbstractAims/IntroductionFor diabetes patients undergoing hemodialysis, vitreous hemorrhage seems to be a hemodialysis ‐induced hemorrhagic complication because of the effect of systemic anticoagulation. However, it is unclear whether hemodialysis is associated with vitreous hemorrhage in diabetes patients. We therefore ca...
