The WISHED Trial: implementation of an interactive health communication application for patients with chronic kidney disease

ConclusionsThis study will assess whether access to a website dedicated to supporting and promoting home-based dialysis therapies will increase the proportion of patients with CKD who initiate a home-based dialysis therapy.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov #NCT01403454, registration date: July 21, 2011.

A 28-year-old woman sought care due to an increase in mandible volume lasting approximately 1 year. The patient had chronic kidney disease caused by Berger disease in childhood, and underwent hemodialysis 3 times a week. An intraoral clinical examination revealed an expansive lesion on the left side of the mandible, causing mobility of the adjacent teeth. The radiographic examination showed a lesion of imprecise borders in the region of the right mandible of approximately 2 cm in size. An incisional biopsy and histologic examination revealed a giant cell lesion.

The brown tumor of hyperparathyroidism is a rare condition associated with excessive production of parathyroid hormone in response to decreased serum calcium levels associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD). A 28-year-old female patient with CKD undergoing hemodialysis presented an asymptomatic swelling in the buccal region of teeth 34 to 44 and mobility of them. Similar swellings were observed on the palate and alveolar ridge distal to tooth 17. On the panoramic radiograph, a radiolucent area not defined by radiopaque halo was observed in the anterior region of the mandible of approximately 2.5 cm in length and radiolu...

We report a case of a 30-year-old female patient referred to our clinic with a chief complaint of a painful swelling of the left mandible and difficulty chewing. Her medical history included systemic lupus erythematosus, hypertension, and chronic kidney disease (was on hemodialysis for the past 9 years).

ConclusionsA significant number of patients with T2DM developed acute kidney injury following CABG. There was no difference in infective complications such as pneumonia and catheter-associated urinary tract infection, between the two groups.

Publication date: Available online 13 December 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces B: BiointerfacesAuthor(s): Yue Shen, Yifeng Wang, Yuanyuan Shi, Xiao Bi, Jingyi Xu, Qiuyu Zhu, Feng DingAbstractAnionic and protein-bound uremic toxins, represented by indoxyl sulfate (IS), may be associated with cardiovascular outcomes and the progression of chronic kidney disease in cases of injured kidney function and are not easily cleared by traditional dialysis therapy. We fabricated cationic liposomes that were modified with polyethyleneimine (PEI), octadecylamine (Oct), and hexadecyl trimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB), and evaluated the...

ConclusionsLong hemodialysis periods and elevated PTH levels were the probable factors for the development of facial deformities in this group of patients. The main complications associated to the surgical management of facial deformities in ROD patients are directly related to end-stage renal disease, with increased risks for hemorrhage and systemic drug accumulation.

Publication date: November 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 6Author(s): Harish Seethapathy, Lama NoureddineCalciphylaxis is a rare disorder of poor prognosis that can lead to intense, painful lesions involving the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Although mostly described in dialysis patients, it can affect patients with normal kidney function. The diagnosis of calciphylaxis is complicated by the absence of a gold standard marker of disease such as a clear histopathological finding. Late diagnosis and advanced lesions can significantly shorten life expectancy. Calciphylaxis wounds can have a ma...

Publication date: November 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 6Author(s): Mario Cozzolino, Maria Fusaro, Paola Ciceri, Lorenzo Gasperoni, Giuseppe CiancioloVascular calcification (VC) is common in advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD), contributes to cardiovascular disease (CVD), and associates with increased mortality. Major risk factors for VC in CKD are increasing age, dialysis vintage, and positive net calcium-phosphate balance. To date, no specific therapy that prevents progression or facilitates regression of VC beyond careful attention to calcium and phosphate balance exists. Accumulati...

Abstract PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The kidney transplantation landscape has changed dramatically over the last 2 decades. First, transplantation is performed in patients previously considered ineligible for transplantation, including older patients and patients with multiple comorbidities. Second, organ shortages have increased the use of less-than-optimal donor kidneys, like organs from expanded criteria donors or donors after cardiac death. Third, improvements in managing chronic kidney disease and dialysis have improved survival on dialysis. Therefore, the question arises: does transplantation currently benefit older ...
