Renalase gene polymorphisms (rs2576178 and rs10887800) in Egyptian hypertensive end stage renal disease patients

ConclusionOur study revealed that the risk of developing end stage renal diseases was increased among carriers of AA genotype for the rs10887800 polymorphism and GG genotype for the rs2576178 polymorphism.

Conclusions: Renal disease proved to be associated with early and subclinical impairment of LV systolic function, which persists after starting dialysis and even in spite of successful kidney transplantation. An increased E/e ’ resulted to be the most powerful independent predictor of abnormal GLS.Cardiorenal Med 2019;9:61 –68

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...

Publication date: December 2018Source: Value in Health Regional Issues, Volume 17Author(s): Ramiro E. Gilardino, Eduardo González-Pier, Claudia BrabataAbstractEnd-stage renal disease, the last and most severe stage of chronic kidney disease, represents a major and rising concern for countries in Latin America, driven in large part by aging populations and the near-epidemic rises in diabetes, obesity, and hypertension. This places a great clinical, economic, and social burden on the region’s health systems. During the ISPOR 6th Latin America Conference held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in September 2017, an educationa...

Purpose of review Although historically peritoneal dialysis was widely used in nephrology, it has been underutilized in recent years. In this review, we present several key opportunities and strategies for revitalization of urgent start peritoneal dialysis use, and discuss the recent literature on clinical experience with peritoneal dialysis use in the acute and unplanned setting. Recent findings Interest in using urgent start peritoneal dialysis to manage acute kidney injury (AKI) and unplanned chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 5 patients has been increasing. To overcome some of the classic limitations of peritoneal...

Abstract Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects health and life of patients. They confront anemia, hypertension, infections and cardiovascular disease. Due to these health issues, they are at risk of repeated hospitalizations. The risk factors which propel them to hospitalize are important to know, and by controlling these factors, we can impede preventable hospitalization. This case-control study included 1050 adult CKD patients, conducted in two tertiary care hospitals of Karachi. Variables included were age, gender, ethnicity, area of residence, marital status, education smoking status, comorbids, blood pressure,...

Abstract Acute kidney injury (AKI) increases mortality and morbidity of hospitalized patients. We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of AKI, etiology, and associated risk factors among hospitalized patients during the Hajj time. Also to do comparative analysis for the use of slow continuous therapy versus conventional hemodialysis (HD) therapy on the patient outcome. The study was conducted between September 29 and November 25, 2011, inclusive (Islamic lunar dates Dhu'l-Qa'dah 1 to Dhul-Hijjah 29, 1432) at King Abdul-Aziz Hospital, a 250-bed hospital, in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. From 851 patients of 47 different countr...

Purpose of review Iron deficiency is a major contributory cause to the development of anaemia in chronic kidney disease (CKD), and thus, iron replacement therapy plays a critical role in the management of this condition. The two main routes for administering iron are oral and intravenous, and there have been a number of new publications relevant to both routes of administration. Recent findings Recent developments on the topic of iron management in CKD include the introduction of new oral iron preparations, as well as two recent meta-analyses on iron therapy in CKD (one on oral versus intravenous iron, and one on high...

Authors: Io H, Suzuki Y Abstract BACKGROUND: Currently, left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and dysfunction are considered the strongest predictors of cardiovascular mortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. We investigated the factors associated with elevated LV mass index (LVMI) using echocardiography and assessed the strategies used to treat CKD (stages 1-5D) patients. SUMMARY: In study 1, we prospectively determined correlations among biochemical values, physical specimens, and LVMI using echocardiography in hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients (stage 5D). In study 2, biochemical ...
