Protective effects of curcumin against toxic agents-induced renal failure: a review. Cardiovasc Hematol Disord Drug Targets. 2018 Sep 05;: Authors: Farkhondeh T, Samarghandian S, Azimi-Nezhad M, Shahri AMP Abstract Curcumin, is the major phenolic compound the rhizome of the Curcuma species that is used in herbal medicine. Several studies has showed the protective effects of curcumin against nephrotoxi agents such as gallic acid, glucose, tartrazine, streptozotocin, lead, maleate, malathion, nicotine, cisplatin, gentamicin and methotrexate. However, due to the lake of linical trial studies, more investigation are needed to determine the efficacy of curcumin as an antidote agent. The present study aimed to critically review the recent literature data from that regarding the protective effects of curcumin against nephrotoxin agents.

Conclusions: Age should not be a limiting factor when choosing AVF as the preferred HD access. Brachiocephalic AVF has better primary and secondary patency with higher overall median survival. However RCF also provides reasonably good survival rates with acceptable complications in elderly population. Thrombosis and fistulas that fail to mature present as a primary concern to patients in elderly population, and demand further study.

AbstractPurposeSeveral institutions recently published their experiences with unplanned readmissions rates after transsphenoidal surgery for pituitary lesions. Readmission rates on a national level, however, have not been explored in depth. We investigated nationwide trends in this procedure and associated independent predictors, costs, and causes of 30-day readmission.MethodsThe Nationwide Readmissions Database was queried to identify patients 18 and older who underwent transsphenoidal surgery for pituitary lesion resection (2010 –2015). National trends and statistical variances were calculated based on weighted, cl...

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a rare non-Langerhans cell histiocytic proliferation that occurs in nodal and extranodal sites. Rare examples of the disease involving the digestive system have been described. To characterize the digestive tract manifestations of this disease, 12 specimens from 11 patients with extranodal RDD affecting the digestive organs were analyzed. Hematoxylin and eosin sections and available immunohistochemical stains were reviewed, and the clinical information was obtained from patients’ electronic or submitted records. Eight patients were female and 3 male (median age, 65 y; range, 17 t...

Conclusion: Our findings, in combination with other reports, illustrate the clinicopathological heterogeneity of DDS. There are no universal recommendations for optimal management of patients with DDS due to the inability to accurately predict affected individuals' progress.

In this report, a 60 years old woman with a past medical history of significant chronic kidney disease undergoing regular hemodialysis, chronic constipation and hepatitis B was admitted to our neurology clinic because of acute intracerebral hemorrhage. She had confusion and right hemiplegia in her neurological examination and required urinary catheterization due to immobilization. Red coloration was observed in urine on the tenth hospital day. Although this coloration was thought to be hematuria, according to urine examination it was not hematuria. Then urine color turned into purple within two days. The next day, because ...

Abstract Objective: To evaluate the prognostic value of CHA2DS2-VASc score in individuals undergoing isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. Methods: Records of consecutive 464 patients who underwent elective isolated CABG, between January 2015 and August 2017, were retrospectively reviewed. A major adverse cardiac event (MACE) was the primary outcome of this study. MACE in patients with low (L) ( 2 had 52.6% sensitivity and 84.1% specificity (AUC: 0.752, P

We report a case of a 59-year-old female patient with vegetative native mitral valve endocarditis caused by Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (SM). She had hemodialysis-dependent chronic renal failure, but no immunosuppressive disease. Echocardiography showed mobile vegetation on her native mitral valve. Right femoral artery embolectomy and mitral valve replacement were performed simultaneously. She awakened from anesthesia, but she passed away due to septic shock complications. To the best of our knowledge, this was the first case in whom native mitral valve endocarditis caused by SM was observed (despite of absence of any imm...
