Hemostatic state augmented with platelet indices among Sudanese diabetic septic foot

AbstractBackgroundDiabetes mellitus is a very rampant metabolic disorder, particularly type II. It has many complications such as the septic foot. Diabetic septic foot (DSF) patients are at high risk for coagulation abnormalities as well as surgical hazards. Owing to the potential sequelae of coagulation and vascular abnormalities, this work aimed at studying the hemostatic state and platelet indices in diabetes type II patients with septic foot.MethodsA case-control study was conducted during the period from July to September 2017 at Dr. Awaad medical center, Red Sea State, Sudan. 57 diabetic patients with septic foot, aged between 17 and 78  years along with 57 non-diabetic subjects as control were enrolled. Sociodemographic data were collected using a structured questionnaire. Venipuncture blood was taken with necessary safety measures. Diabetes profile, coagulation studies as well as platelet indices were estimated. Data was analyze d using SPSS version 24.0 for windows. Ethical approval was considered and written consent from each participant was obtained.ResultsThe mean age of diabetic patients with septic foot and healthy controls were 48.49  ± 15.8 and 32.77 ± 14.0, respectively. The duration of the diabetes onset was 10.43 ± 9.5 years. Plasma prothrombin time (PT) value (12.61 ± 2.6 vs 13.67 ± 1.5,P

This study aimed to compare infectious and mechanical complications related to urgent-start PD and HD. Secondary outcomes were to identify risk factors for complications and mortality related to urgent-start dialysis. METHODS: A quasi-experimental study with incident patients receiving PD and HD in a Brazilian university hospital, between July 2014 and December 2017. Subjects included individuals with final-stage chronic kidney disease who required immediate RRT, that is, HD through central venous catheter or PD in which the catheter was implanted by a nephrologist and utilized for 72 h, without previous training.
