Authors: Boateng JO, Boafo N, Osafo C, Anim-Sampong S Abstract Background: Chronic kidney disease is a major public health challenge, globally. Inadequate excretion of metabolic waste products by the kidneys results in circulation of these toxic materials in the body. This can cause damage to tissues and organ systems including the auditory system which can lead to hearing loss. Aim: The study was aimed at determining the prevalence, degrees and types of hearing impairment among Chronic kidney disease patients on haemodialysis in Ghana. Methods: A case-control study involving 50 Chronic Kidney disease patie...

This study assessed the psychosocial well-being and quality of life (QoL) of caregivers of CKD patients in two hospitals in Southern Nigeria. Methods: Burden of caregiving, QoL, depression, and anxiety were assessed using standardized instruments; modified Zarit questionnaire, modified SF-12 questionnaire and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) respectively among caregivers of CKD patients on maintenance haemodialysis and controls. Results: Fifty-seven caregivers of CKD patients and aged and sex-matched controls participated in the study. Anxiety was significantly higher in caregivers compared to control (...

A 42-YEAR-OLD woman on hemodialysis with a history of end-stage renal disease, left ventricular ejection fraction of 45%, mean pulmonary artery pressure of 45 mmHg, and severe tricuspid regurgitation had several recent hospitalizations for worsening dyspnea on exertion and peripheral edema. She denied intravenous drug abuse, carcinoid symptoms, trans-tricuspid valve instrumentation, or any known congenital conditions. Preoperative transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated incomplete tricuspid leaflet coaptation despite normal leaflet structure and mobility.

We report a series of 5 solid organ transplantation recipients diagnosed with STEC-HUS between January 2017 and March 2019 in 2 French nephrology centers (Table 1). One patient had 2 episodes of STEC-HUS. All had severe acute kidney injury (requiring hemodialysis in 2). Neurological involvement was noted during 5 episodes: seizures (n = 4) and confusion/coma (n = 4).

Authors: Cho S, Yun S Abstract The primary site for a hemodialysis catheter insertion is the right internal jugular vein (IJV) followed by the left IJV and subclavian vein. In cases when veins of the upper extremities are exhausted, femoral veins are an alternative insertion location. Femoral catheter insertions should only be used for short periods because of the increased risk of infection. There is a percutaneous technique to recanalize occluded central veins for hemodialysis catheter insertion. We experienced success with a cut-down method for permcath through a completely occluded IJV. We, therefore, find surg...
