Persistent left superior vena cava in a hemodialysis patient

We report a case of PLSVC in a patient with chronic kidney disease which was identified following a difficult catheterization into the right internal jugular vein (IJV). The catheterization was attempted through the left IJV and the position of which could not be confirmed with check radiograph and two-dimensional echo. PLSVC was suspected in the computed tomography angiography and was confirmed following digital subtraction angiography.

CONCLUSIONS: CVOTs and other studies confirm that the SGLT-2 inhibitors, mostly used in combination with other glucose-lowering drugs, offer several clinical benefits beyond improved glycemic control. These include reducing HHF risk and improving renal outcomes. HF and renal benefits are observed in individuals with and without established CVD, which may simplify therapeutic selection. Ongoing SGLT-2 inhibitor CVOTs will help clarify the potential of these drugs to treat T2D comorbid with different forms of HF (HF with preserved vs reduced ejection fraction) and different degrees of renal dysfunction, and in individuals wi...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results confirm that PUV has a considerable risk for CKD development. Antenatal diagnosis, management of proteinuria and hypertension may modify this progression. But already injured kidneys still have a potential risk. The need for further research to evaluate the impact of any intervention on long term renal outcome is obvious.

SinhaAbstractRenal disease in women of childbearing age is estimated to be around 3%, consequently renal disease is not an uncommon co-morbidity in pregnancy. There has been considerable evidence published over the last 20 years to suggest that renal disease in pregnancy is associated with higher maternal, fetal and offspring morbidity. Studies published are largely heterogeneous, include unmatched cohort studies and focus on early neonatal outcomes suc...

Abstract The burden of chronic kidney disease is dramatically rising, making it a major public health concern worldwide. Kidney transplantation is now the best treatment for patients with end-stage renal disease. Although kidney transplantation may improve survival and quality of life, its long-term results are hampered by immune- and/or non-immune-mediated complications. Thus, the identification of transplanted patients with a higher risk of posttransplant complications has become a big challenge for public health. However, current biomarkers of posttransplant complications have a poor predictive value, rising th...

We confirmed that level of cellular prion protein (PrPC) in serum was decreased and mitochondria function of CKD-derived hMSCs (CKD-hMSCs) was impaired in patients with CKD. We proved that trea...

Authors: Mutluay R, Konca Değertekin C, Işıktaş Sayılar E, Derici Ü, Gültekin S, Gönen S, Arınsoy ST, Sindel MŞ Abstract Background/aim: Fetuin-A, a circulating inhibitor of calcification, is a marker of inflammatory-nutritional state. We evaluated the association between serum fetuin-A levels and vascular calcification, intima-media thickness, and nutritional and inflammatory markers in different stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Materials and methods: CKD patients were sampled for calcium-phosphate parameters and nutritional and inflammatory markers [highly sensitive C-reactive pro...

Forty million people in Western Europe have chronic kidney disease (CKD).1 The number of patients receiving renal replacement therapy (RRT) increased by 23% from 2006 to 2015.2,3 Males predominate on dialysis. The mean age of patients receiving dialysis is 61.3 years, and 19% are over 80 years.3 Hemodialysis and transplantation predominate, costing around €40,000 to €80,000 and €10,000 to €20,000 per patient per year, respectively.1 Overall, 2% of health expenditure is consumed by RRT for 0.1% of the population.

In conclusion, apart from the unmodifiable factors, avoiding prolonged urinary catheter placement, unnecessary prescriptions, and keeping good nutritional status may help to prevent UTI in home care patients.

Conclusion: HD presented a more adverse impact on oral health than PD, particularly periodontal disease and oral Candida colonization; however, this impact on oral health appears to be reduced or ameliorated when patients change from HD to PD therapy.
