Association of Lean Body Mass Index and Peritoneal Protein Clearance in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients

Conclusion: Higher LBMI was independently associated with higher , indicating that better nutritional status dominates peritoneal protein metabolism in PD patients.Kidney Blood Press Res 2019;44:94 –102

AbstractAim/introductionFor diabetic patients undergoing hemodialysis, vitreous hemorrhage seems to be a hemodialysis ‐induced hemorrhagic complication because of the effect of systemic anticoagulation. But it is unclear whether hemodialysis is associated with vitreous hemorrhage in diabetic patients. We therefore conducted this cohort study to clarify the relationship between hemodialysis and vitreous hemorrhage in diabetic patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR).Materials and MethodsThis was a single ‐center, retrospective, cohort study. We compared the incidence of vitreous hemorrhage in non‐vitrect...

DISCUSSION: Mortality and cardiovascular disease burden have declined for dialysis patients in the United States despite an aging population that is increasingly hypertensive and diabetic. Comorbid disease burdens among HD and PD patients have diverged over time, with PD patients having fewer comorbid conditions.

CONCLUSION: Dialysis outcomes such as technique failure, infection, and mortality are not affected by the presence of LC. Accordingly, PD therapy is a good option in patients with LC. PMID: 31582468 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: The results mentioned above could be considered as one of the ways to explain better technique survival in PD patients.

In this study, we intended to study the clinical characteristics and patient and technique survival of elderly patients on PD. In this study, data of 148 elderly patients with end-stage renal disease who initiated PD between January 2001 and December 2015 were collected. Baseline clinical characteristics and events during the study period were recorded. Overall patient and technique survival rates of diabetic and non-diabetic elderly patients on PD were analyzed. Around 128 patients who were initiated PD during the study period were included for final analysis. The mean age of the study group was 70.3 ± 5.1 years, and...

Conclusions: Among patients with incident PD, a higher serum Lp(a) level may predict a lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke. PMID: 31498021 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract BACKGROUND: Optimal fluid balance for peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients requires both water and sodium removal. Previous studies have variously reported that continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) removes more or equivalent amounts of sodium than automated PD (APD) cyclers. We therefore wished to determine peritoneal dialysate losses with different PD treatments. METHODS: Peritoneal and urinary sodium losses were measured in 24-h collections of urine and PD effluent in patients attending for their first assessment of peritoneal membrane function. We adjusted fluid and sodium losses for CAPD...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Nontraumatic acute abdomen (NTAA) in dialysis patients is a challenging issue. The aetiologies of NTAA vary considerably depending on the renal replacement therapy (RRT) modality. Although haematological parameters and contributing factors have been reported to be associated with outcomes for dialysis patients, their clinical effect on the length of hospital stay (LOS) remains unknown. METHODS: We retrospectively analysed 52 dialysis patients (peritoneal dialysis [PD], n = 33; haemodialysis [HD], n = 19) and 30 non-dialysis patients (as controls) between January 2011 and December 2014. ...
