Geriatric Nutritional Risk Index Is Predictive of Subjective Global Assessment and Dialysis Malnutrition Scores in Elderly Patients on Hemodialysis

Malnutrition is a frequent complication in patients on hemodialysis (HD), even if its adequate appraisal remains one of the most complicated challenges in the HD scenario because of the limits of current malnutrition biomarkers. The aim of our study was to assess the relation of subjective nutritional tools Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) and Dialysis Malnutrition Score (DMS) with the objective malnutrition tool Geriatric Nutritional Risk Index (GNRI) in elderly patients on HD.

Authors: Niyyar VD Abstract Sonography is increasingly being used by nephrologists and the field of dialysis access is no exception. Advances in technology have allowed the addition of this universally available, portable, non-invasive tool to the nephrologist's armamentarium, which provides information on both morphology and physiology without the need for contrast or radiation. Ultrasound may be used across the spectrum of dialysis access, including central venous catheter placements, vascular mapping, regional anesthesia, creation, maintenance and assessment of hemodialysis access as well as assessment of the ab...

This case report and Video demonstrate the multidisciplinary management of a complex patient with hemodialysis access and indwelling pacemaker for whom multiple attempts at balloon angioplasty for superior vena cava syndrome ...

ConclusionsIn this pilot randomized controlled trial studying patients requiring initiation of HD, we found no difference in absolute SBP decline between those who received mannitol and those who received saline solution. However, there were fewer overall IDH events and a nominally lower risk for dialysis sessions being complicated by IDH in the mannitol group. A larger multicenter randomized controlled trial is warranted.FundingGovernment funding to an author (Dr Mc Causland is supported by National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases grant K23DK102511).Trial RegistrationRegistered at ClinicalTrials.go...

In a research setting, PROs can be used as a patient-centered primary or secondary outcome in clinical studies. In routine care, PRO data may be used to support service delivery through benchmarking and audit or inform and enhance t...
