Safe correction of severe hyponatremia in patient with severe renal failure using continuous venovenous hemofiltration with modified sodium content in the replacement fluid.

We described a safe correction of severe hyponatremia in a 42-year-old male patient requiring dialysis, who was treated with continuous venovenous hemofiltration using hypotonic replacement fluid which was prepared and adjusted on a daily basis. PMID: 30588980 [PubMed - in process]

GRAFTON (CBS) – President Donald Trump singed an executive order Wednesday, revamping the whole approach to treating kidney disease in this country. And a 19-year-old from Grafton is among the 30 million Americans who could benefit. “I just try to keep busy,” said Samantha Cleveland, “so I don’t focus on why I feel so terrible.” Samantha still battles through chronic fatigue to ride her horse, but is well aware that thousands of people die every year waiting for a kidney. “I try not to think about it,” she said, “because right now I’m doing OK.” Samantha Cle...

At Massachusetts General Hospital, we pioneered simultaneous hematopoietic cell (HCT)/kidney transplantation from HLA-identical related donors for the treatment of hematological malignancies with end-stage renal failure. We have now extended this to HLA-haploidentical donors in a pilot trial. Six recipients, 5 of whom were conditioned with fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and total-body irradiation, underwent combined HCT/kidney transplantation from haploidentical donors; graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis included post-HCT cyclophosphamide, tacrolimus, and mycophenolate mofetil. One patient died as a result of com...

ConclusionsThe incidence of ectopic ureter is 3.5% among anorectal malformation patients. Cloaca and recto-bladder neck fistula are the types of anorectal malformation with higher incidence. Ureteral ectopia seems to confer an increased risk of renal failure. Identifying ectopic ureters is important for surgical planning and monitoring renal function vigilantly.

A 38-year-old Caucasian male with a complex urologic history of renal transplantation and ileal conduit urinary diversion was admitted with acute renal failure and found to have an obstructing ileal conduit mass. The patient's history was notable for posterior urethral valves status post ablation as an infant, construction of a catheterizable channel at age 2, ileal conduit urinary diversion at age 4, left nephrectomy for recurrent pyelonephritis in a nonfunctioning kidney at age 7, and living-related kidney transplant for progressive chronic kidney disease at age 27.

Abstract Renal transplantation is an effective therapy with improved long-term outcomes compared with other therapies for end stage renal disease. Present methods for evaluating kidney allograft function, such as serum creatinine or allograft biopsy, are not sensitive and identify pathological changes only after any potential intervention would be effective. Thus, there is a necessity for biomarkers that would provide early prognostic information about kidney transplant outcomes. Circulating microvesicles represent an attractive source of biomarkers for different diseases including renal failure. We have studied t...

AbstractIntroductionChronic kidney disease (CKD) is a systemic disease affecting many organs. Progression of renal failure aggravates ongoing inflammation and increases oxidative stress. In the final stage of CKD, it is necessary to use renal replacement therapy. A side effect of dialysis therapy is the synthesis of proinflammatory factors and increased oxidative stress, which activates platelets and immune cells.Aim of the studyTo determine the regenerative potential of platelets in patients with CKD based on the analysis of the relationships between substances with potential regenerative action, as well as analysis of th...

Authors: Chen G, Gao L, Li X Abstract BACKGROUND: Whether exercise can improve cardiovascular health in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) is unclear. Therefore, we performed a systematic review of the effects of exercise on cardiovascular risk factors in this population setting. METHODS: Randomized control trials (RCTs) evaluating the impact of exercise on major clinical outcomes in KTRs were identified by searches in Cochrane CENTRAL, PubMed, EMBASE, OVID and CBM updated to December 2018. The main outcomes of interest were blood pressure, lipid profile, blood glucose level, arterial stiffness, kidney functio...

Authors: Chiriac A, Grosu OM, Terinte C, Perţea M Abstract Calciphylaxis is associated with end-stage renal failure or kidney transplant, although, cases of non-uremic calciphylaxis have been reported. It is a rare disorder, with high mortality, characterized by vascular calcification within cutaneous vessels; vascular calcification can occur in other organs, besides skin, like heart, lung or pancreas, which is named visceral calciphylaxis. The diagnosis is based mainly on clinical features and histopathological findings. Here, we review current knowledge regarding diagnosis and therapeutic approach to cutaneous c...

Abstract To allow improved quality of life, renal transplant has been regarded as the best therapeutic option for patients with end-stage renal disease. However, due to shortages of renal sources, annually, only a few patients with renal failure can receive transplants, with most patients requiring hemodialysis to maintain their life. With increasing imbalance of demands and supplies for donor organs, infant organ donors have become an important part of domestic and foreign transplant sources. It is of great importance to guarantee successful kidney transplant outcomes. Examination of the size and blood perfusion ...
