Conclusion: In CKD patients, short-term BPV is strongly associated with 24 h, night-time and daytime BP but is independent from the eGFR and proteinuria and does not predict CKD progression.

Conclusions: Patients with advanced CKD, dialysis, and kidney transplant had significant higher rates and risks of in-hospital morbidity or mortality than those without advanced CKD, undergoing spinal fusion. Particularly, patients with dialysis undergoing spinal fusion need to be informed with high mortality risk.

Authors: Chen CF, Chen FA, Lee TL, Liao LF, Chen CY, Tan AC, Chan CH, Lin CC Abstract Due to the implementation of the National Health Insurance system in 1995, the number of patients receiving maintenance dialysis has increased rapidly. This contributed to Taiwan to be in an unfortunate position of possessing the highest prevalence of end-stage renal disease globally. Although the age-standardized incidence of end-stage renal disease gradually decreased to -1.1% in 2014, the huge economic burden that comes with dialysis is detrimental to the quality of dialysis treatment. To achieve a balance between economy and q...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTrimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) is a gut microbiota-dependent metabolite produced from choline and phosphatidylcholine. Trimethylamine N-oxide was found associated with enhanced atherosclerosis and thrombosis in vitro and in vivo. We summarized available clinical studies which investigated TMAO ’s role in predicting prognostic outcomes, including mortality, in patients with cardiovascular diseases.Recent FindingsIn chronic kidney disease cohorts, higher TMAO levels were significantly associated with higher mortality from 1.18 to 4.32 folds. Higher TMAO levels were not significantly associated w...

Jiménez MA Abstract Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects the kidneys, and in severe cases is considered as end-stage renal disease which can only be treated by dialysis and transplantation. Tierra Blanca city has a higher CKD rate compared to other Mexican cities, but its principal cause has not been found yet. Main factors related to CKD are carbonated beverage consumption, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, heat stress, dehydration, and intoxication by pesticides, heavy metals, and/or hydrocarbons. The aim of this work was to evaluate hydrocarbon pollution in Tierra Blanca domestic fresh-water related to CK...

Our patient is a 60-year-old female with a past medical history significant for diabetes mellitus type 2, smoking, anal cancer status-post transrectal excision with no evidence of recurrence or metastasis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on hemodialysis (HD). She had progressive chronic kidney disease for approximately 25 years, ultimately starting HD 3 years prior to this evaluation. She presented to the urology department for evaluation prior to kidney transplantation.

Abstract Kidney diseases including acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease are among the largest health issues worldwide. Dialysis and kidney transplantation can replace a significant portion of renal function, however these treatments still have limitations. To overcome these shortcomings, a variety of innovative efforts have been introduced, including cell-based therapies. During the past decades, advances have been made in the stem cell and developmental biology, and tissue engineering. As part of such efforts, studies on renal cell therapy and artificial kidney developments have been conducted, and mult...

Abstract Urologic causes of end-stage renal disease are estimated between 25% and 40% of causes. The goal of renal transplantation in chronic kidney disease patients is to provide renal replacement therapy with less morbidity, better quality of life, and improved overall survival compared with dialysis. A patient's urologic history can be a significant source of problems related to infections, recurrence of disease, and surgical complications. Many of the urologic risks are modifiable. Proper evaluation and management can mitigate the potential problems after transplantation, and these patients with complex urolog...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: The relationship between chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease is complex and bidirectional. This relationship may be partially linked to thrombophilic genetic anomalies that may predispose to the progression of both diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed blood samples from 102 Lebanese patients with end-stage renal disease and undergoing hemodialysis and 20 randomly selected healthy volunteers for frequencies of 12 cardiovascular disease gene mutations and traditional risk factors. The frequencies of these mutations were calculated and compared in both groups. We strati...
