Approximately 500 monogenic causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD) have been identified, mainly in pediatric populations. The frequency of monogenic causes among adults with CKD has been less extensively studied. To determine the likelihood of detecting monogenic causes of CKD in adults presenting to nephrology services in Ireland, we conducted whole exome sequencing (WES) in a multi-centre cohort of 114 families including 138 affected individuals with CKD. Affected adults were recruited from 78 families with a positive family history, 16 families with extra-renal features, and 20 families with neither a family history nor...

Authors: Ferreira A, Pinto B, Navarro D, Aniceto J, Neves PL, Ponce P Abstract INTRODUCTION: Hyperphosphatemia is a serious consequence of chronic kidney disease and has been associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. Controlling serum phosphorus levels in patients on dialysis is a challenge for the clinicians and implies, in most cases, the use of phosphate binders (PB). Part of the reason for this challenge is poor adherence to treatment because of the high pill burden in this patient group. OBJECTIVE: To assess the real-world effectiveness of sucroferric oxyhydroxide (SO) in controlling se...

This study aimed to evaluate whether gray zone AF patients could benefit from reduced all-cause mortality under antithrombotic treatment. This was a longitudinal cohort study performed using data from claim forms submitted to the Taiwan Bureau of National Health Insurance from January 2000 to December 2011. The new-onset AF patients consisted of a gray zone cohort with a total of 1237 patients being enrolled. The primary outcome was all-cause mortality between 2001 and 2011. Patients in the gray zone receiving antithrombotic treatment had a significant reduction in all-cause mortality [hazard ratio (HR): 0.21; 95% confiden...

This report describes a massive pleural effusion that led to the discovery of subclavian artery rupture causing hemodynamic shock. Hemodynamic instability in this patient was caused by hypovolemic and obstructive shock, with a pleural perfusion caused by subclavian artery rupture. Monitoring via transesophageal echocardiography during the procedure enabled early discovery of the massive pleural effusion. Subsequent covered stent implantation stabilized the subclavian artery rupture, and the patient became hemodynamically stable. As subclavian artery rupture can occur during trans-subclavian TAVI, the presence of calcificat...

This article aims to establish the suitable hemoglobin in order to provide clinical guidance. METHODS: MEDLINE, EmBase, the Cochrane Library and other databases were searched with both MeSH terms and keywords to gather randomized controlled trials that assessed all-cause mortality, cardiovascular events, fistula thrombosis, infectious diseases and transfusion among dialysis-dependent patients using erythropoiesis-stimulating agents. The meta-analysis was accomplished via Revman 5.3 version. FINDINGS: Totally, nine eligible studies were included, with study subjects involving 3228 patients. There was a significantly...
