In this issue, Kubiak et  al. report on 562 patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing single stage surgical creation of an autologous upper extremity arteriovenous fistula (AVF).1 This was actually a sub-study of the somewhat larger Haemodialysis Fistula Maturation Study, with the aim of testing the association between mineral metabolism markers (MMMs) and histology of vein samples obtained at AVF creation and also unassisted and overall clinical AVF maturation. MMMs included fibroblast growth factor-23, parathyroid hormone, calcium, phosphate, and the vitamin D metabolites 1,25(OH)2D, 24,25(OH)2D, 25(OH) ...

Authors: Li C, Yap DYH, Chan G, Wen YB, Li H, Tang C, Li XM, Li XW, Chan TM Abstract OBJECTIVE: Renal thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is an uncommon pathological finding in lupus nephritis (LN), and its clinical significance remains to be defined. METHODS: 24 patients with lupus nephritis (LN) and renal TMA were selected from a retrospective review of 677 biopsy-proven LN patients, and compared with 48 LN Controls without TMA (in 1:2 ratio) matched according to demographics and treatments. RESULTS: Renal TMA was noted in 3.5% of kidney biopsies of LN. TMA was associated with a higher prevalence of anti-Ro ...

Authors: Sivakumar C, Jubb VM, Lamplugh A, Bhandari S Abstract Safety of parenteral iron therapy is critical and has been demonstrated in several studies, but concerns persist on safety. We performed a retrospective single-center study investigating the safety and efficacy of parenteral iron administration using 2 iron preparations-Monofer and Cosmofer (Pharmacosmos A/S, Holbaek, Denmark)-in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), on peritoneal dialysis (PD) and non-dialysis. A database of CKD patients receiving intravenous (IV) iron was analyzed. Side effects were recorded during infusion, post-infusion, and a...

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have an increased risk of adverse cardiovascular/cerebrovascular events. The aim of this study is to clarify whether stress myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) could predict cardiovascular/cerebrovascular events. In the Gunma-CKD SPECT Study, a multicenter prospective cohort trial, 311 patients with CKD (estimated glomerular filtration rate #x3c; 60 min/mL/1.73 m2) including 50 patients on hemodialysis underwent stress99mTc-tetrofosmin SPECT for suspected ischemic heart disease and were followed for 2 years. The primary endpoint was the occurren...
