Scurvy in a hemodialysis patient. Rare or ignored?

We present a case of scurvy in a HD patient that will contribute toward the understanding of vitamin status in HD. We hope it will aid in screening HD patients for vitamin C deficiency and indiv idualizing supplementation of vitamin C.

This study aimed to review the outcomes of percutaneous treatment with a mother-child technique in the treatment of symptomatic central venous stenosis (CVS) and central venous occlusion (CVO) in patients on hemodialysis.MethodsData were collected retrospectively and included all consecutive patients with CVS or CVO who were treated with percutaneous angioplasty and stenting. The occlusive lesions were crossed using the mother-child technique with an angiographic catheter-in-guiding catheter system.ResultsA total of 36 patients with symptomatic CVS and 45 patients with total CVO were included. The average age and gender co...

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.

Uremic stomatitis represents an unusual condition associated with uremia in patients with renal failure. A 29-year-old man with chronic renal failure on hemodialysis was referred by nephrology service because of complaint of multiple painful oral lesions. The patient had been hospitalized for fever associated with severe pancytopenia and elevated levels of creatinine and urea (16.10 mg/dL and 251 mg/dL, respectively). On physical examination, the patient presented with whitish plaques interspersed by reddish areas of atrophy and epithelial erosion and few ulcerated areas dispersed in the upper and lower labial mucosa, bila...

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).

This study was designed to investigate the biocompatibility of hemodialysis procedures, largely depending on the contact of patient's blood with the dialysis membranes. We addressed the issue by comparing the content of the proteolytic enzymes collagenase and cathepsin B and that of neutrophil myeloperoxidase (MPO) and C-reactive protein (CRP) in the blood before and after a single session treatment and a full course of successive 8-week-long therapies with three types of hemodialysis: low-flux (lfHD), high-flux (hfHD), and post-dilution hemodiafiltration (HDF). The study included 19 patients with chronic nephropathy. We f...

Larsson, Jinmin Zhao, Tim Melander BowdenAbstractCarbazate groups were grafted on the commercial cellulose membrane (CM) to specifically scavenge the carbonylated proteins for hemodialysis. It confirmed that carbazate groups were successfully covalently attached on the CMs by XPS and EDS, and the modified CMs still saved their original morphology and crystalline structures by SEM and XRD. Furthermore, the modified CMs presented favorable physicochemical stability at wide pH range fr...

Exercise training appears to have modest or inconsistent benefits in hemodialysis patients. This may be due to the low volume and intensity of exercise often prescribed. To address this, research is needed to evaluate the efficacy of individualized exercise prescriptions as a component of a comprehensive lifestyle intervention strategy that gives patients more autonomy to choose preferred types of physical activity.

CONCLUSION: Hemodialysis patients can safely use their fistula arm to lift objects weighing less than 6 lb, which encourages increased motion and helps preserve the functionality of the fistula arm. PMID: 31829085 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThe fibrous sheath of tunneled CVCs is a reliable access for CVC re ‐insertion. This helps to preserve the same venous access site for repeated revision of CVCs. This is extremely important in those children who depend on long‐term CVC usage.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
