The loss of bone mineral density caused by Chronic Kidney Disease can make the delineation of a patient’s bony anatomy impossible during intra-operative fluoroscopy. This has the potential to increase the failure rate of implants used in the surgical treatment of neck of femur fractures due to sub-optimal placements. Intra-operative arthrograms add to the techniques available to a surgeon to achieve optimal implant placement without compromising the patient’s renal function nor increasing the radiation dose exposure to the surgical team.

Publication date: January 2019Source: Journal of Functional Foods, Volume 52Author(s): Tran Van Hung, Jun Wanatanbe, Yasunori Yonejima, Keiko Hisa, Yoshinari Yamamoto, Takuya SuzukiAbstractFeeding with 10% leucosaccharides for 3 weeks mitigated the development of adenine-induced chronic kidney disease in mice, as assessed by plasma urea, renal expression of inflammatory- and fibrosis-associated molecules, and colonic expression of tight junction proteins. Leucosaccharides are exopolysaccharides produced by Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. mesenteroides strain NTM048. Sequencing of 16S rRNA also revealed that leucosacchar...

Chronic kidney disease is an ongoing deterioration of renal function that often progresses to end-stage renal disease. Management goals in children include slowing disease progression, prevention and treatment of complications, and optimizing growth, development, and quality of life. Nutritional management is critically important to achieve these goals. Control of blood pressure, proteinuria, and metabolic acidosis with dietary and pharmacologic measures may slow progression of chronic kidney disease. Although significant progress in management has been made, further research is required to resolve many outstanding controv...

Tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) is a cause of acute kidney injury in children characterized histologically by an inflammatory cell infiltrate in the kidney interstitium. The most common causes of TIN in children include medications, infections, inflammatory disorders, and genetic conditions. TIN typically presents with nonoliguric acute kidney injury and may be associated with systemic symptoms, including fever, rash, and eosinophilia. The long-term prognosis is generally favorable, with full kidney recovery; however, some patients may develop progressive chronic kidney disease. Immunosuppressive therapy may be indicate...

Obesity is a leading cause of chronic kidney disease. Children with severe obesity have an increased prevalence of early kidney abnormalities and are at high risk to develop kidney failure in adulthood. The pathophysiology of obesity-related kidney disease is incompletely understood, although the postulated mechanisms of kidney injury include hyperfiltration, adipokine dysregulation, and lipotoxic injury. An improved understanding of the long-term effects of obesity on kidney health is essential treat the growing epidemic of obesity-related kidney disease. The purpose of this article is to review the epidemiology, pathophy...

Authors: Park S, Jeong TD Abstract The creatinine-based Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equation can be calculated according to race, sex, and creatinine concentration (subgroup equation) or in the form expressed by one equation (single equation). Minor differences in the constants used in the CKD-EPI equations (subgroup vs single equations) could result in a significant difference in the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). We evaluated the impact of this difference in 79,709 Korean patients. The eGFR was calculated as an integer using the single and subgroup CKD-EPI equations. ...

Although association of FeMV infection with kidney diseases in cats has been suggested, the pathogenicity of the virus has not been clear to date. To study the association between FeMV infection and pathological changes in kidney tissues of infected cats, we performed immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescent assays to d...
