Conclusions: The PWV ratio, as a measure of loss of the normal gradient in arterial compliance, was associated with CKD patient outcome. Patients with advanced CKD and a higher PWV ratio had a significantly higher risk of adverse CKD outcome.Cardiorenal Med

Conclusion: We identified a novel panel of biomarkers that can be utilized in predicting survival in ESRD patients. This biomarker signature could enable better monitoring of patients and stratification into appropriate treatment groups.Am J Nephrol

Rationale: Low physical activity is frequent in end stage renal disease. We evaluated the longitudinal change in physical activity and its barriers in hemodialysis (HD) patients and the association between the patterns of physical activity change, body composition, and beta-aminoisobutyric acid (BAIBA), as circulating myokine. Methods: This is an observational study where HD patients were considered in a 24-month follow-up. We assessed overtime the change of physical inactivity and its barriers by validated questionnaires, body composition by bioimpedance analysis, muscle strength by hand-dynamometer, and plasma BAIBA le...

Infected arteriovenous grafts necessitate intervention to obtain source control. However, excising the graft material can be challenging and can lead to complications. Leaving a cuff of graft at the sites of anastomosis allows for the avoidance of potential risks. However, it is unclear whether doing so places patients at risk of recurrent graft infection. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of complete vs partial excision of infected arteriovenous prosthetic dialysis access grafts.

Prognostic value of N-terminal fragment of the prohormone brain-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) was analyzed in patients with multiple myeloma complicated by dialysisdependent renal failure. The prospective study included 20 patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. The concentrations of NT-proBNP were measured before antimyeloma chemotherapy. The median age of the patients was 67 (63-76) years. The median glomerular filtration rate was 4 (4, 5) ml/min/1.73 m2. For overall survival, the area under ROC curve was 0.75 and the cut-off point was 7000 pg/ml. At median follow-up of 17.3 months, the overall survival wa...

AbstractAcute blood purification therapy is an essential artificial organ in critical care. In the review article, looking back on the history, we describe our present knowledge and techniques of acute blood purification therapy in critical care. The topics include continuous hemodiafiltration (CHDF), online HDF as an artificial liver support, blood purification therapy aiming to remove pathogenic substances of sepsis, a procedure for connecting a CRRT device into an extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation circuit, and replacement fluid for CHDF. We also raise remaining issues and clarify the future direction of acute blood p...

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...
