Association of Intraoperative Hypotension with Acute Kidney Injury after Noncardiac Surgery in Patients Younger than 60 Years Old

Conclusion: There was a considerably increased risk of postoperative AKI when intraoperative MAP was less than 55 mm Hg for more than 10 min. Strict blood pressure management is recommended even for patients younger than 60 years old.Kidney Blood Press Res

CONCLUSIONS: Percent stenosis determination is fraught with uncertainty and exhibits a weak correlation with Qa. Compared with percent stenosis, the minimum luminal diameter of the stenosis demonstrates a superior correlation with Qa. PMID: 31203718 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: September 2019Source: LWT, Volume 112Author(s): Tasneem H. Ravat, Veena Yardi, N. Mallikarjunan, Sahayog N. JamdarAbstractThe physicochemical and functional characteristics of irradiated locust bean gum (LBG) were investigated for their use as a source of dietary fibre in enteral food. Radiation processing mainly affected the molecular weight of the polymer in dose-dependent manner. The attributes like lowering of viscosity, increase in solubility and swelling index were better achieved with the use of irradiated polymer. A 17% reduction in glucose dialysis retardation index (GDRI) and decrease in bile ac...

Sanjay Vikrant, Ajay Jaryal, Anupam ParasharIndian Journal of Public Health 2019 63(2):154-156 Most deaths related to Hymenoptera are a result of immediate hypersensitivity reactions causing anaphylaxis to one or few stings. However, if the patient is exposed to a large quantity of the venom due to mass/multiple stings, massive envenomation can cause death in nonallergic individuals. Thirty-nine cases of acute kidney injury (AKI) who followed mass attacks by Hymenoptera were seen over 15 years, with a reference period between 2003 and 2017. AKI was severe; most (85%) of them required dialysis and one-third died. Mass ...

Moreover, with the rapid increase in the number of chronic kidney disease patients requiring dialysis, hemodialysis units (HDUs) are getting saturated. Community “stand-alone” dialysis centers could be an important alternative to HDUs in meeting the growing...

AbstractPurposeChronic kidney disease (CKD) is characterised by poor physical function. A possible factor may be aberrant changes to balance and postural stability (i.e. ability to maintain centre of pressure (COP)). Previous research has exclusively focused on patients undergoing renal replacement therapy (RRT). The current study investigated postural stability in a group of CKD patients not requiring RRT.Methods30 CKD patients (aged 57.0  ± 17.8 years, 47% female, mean eGFR 42.9 ± 27.2 ml/kg/1.73 m2) underwent a series of physical function assessments including the...

AbstractPurposeThe association betweenHelicobacter pylori (HP) infection and duration of dialysis in dialysis patients is conflicting, this meta-analysis was conducted to elucidate the association between duration of dialysis and HP infection status in dialysis patients, and subgroup study was conducted to explore its influencing factors. Furthermore, our study aims to provide advice on the treatment of dialysis patients.MethodsArticles published up to 30 September 2018 were searched from PubMed, Embase, Sinomed, Medline, China Knowledge Resource Integrated Database (CNKI) and Wang fang database.
