We report here the observation of a 36-year-old patient whose diagnosis of encapsulating peritonitis was made after a long sub-occlusive history, eight years after a gastric ulcer perforation. DISCUSSION: We discuss the possible etiologies and we present a focus on this rare and little-known entity. PMID: 31635978 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Herein the authors present the synthesis of surface functionalised mesoporous alumina (MeAl) for textural characterisation by a simplified sol-gel method obtained by using hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide as a template. Etoricoxib (ETOX) was used as a model drug for the study. Alumina supported mesoporous material containing drug was characterised using instrumental technique namely Brunauer-Emmett-Teller surface area, Fourier transform-infrared, differential scanning calorimetry, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and field emission scanning electron microscopy. Diffusion study using a dialysis bag met...

Conclusion: Our system has the potential to provide accurate and important information on the state of a patient undergoing hemodialysis, while only low-cost modifications to the existing onboard sensors are required. Significance: Through improved knowledge of blood parameters during hemodialysis, our method will allow better patient monitoring and therapy customization in hemodialysis.

It is clinically and genetically heterogeneous and in its natural history, renal disease progresses from microscopic haematuria to proteinuria, and finally to progressive renal insufficiency. AS is caused by an inherited defect in...

Authors: special issue: “Focus on pediatric nephrology”, Chimenz R, Sallemi A, Fusco M, Cannavò L, Salvo V, Marseglia L, Cucinotta U, Gitto E, Concolino D, Arrigo T, Salpietro C Abstract The natural history of children with end stage renal disease is dialysis until a transplant can be done. There are two types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis (1). Peritoneal dialysis is preferred in young children because getting the vascular access for hemodialysis is challenging (2). Catheters should be surgically placed in a paramedian or lateral abdominal region with an extremity located in D...

Authors: special issue: “Focus on pediatric nephrology”, Chimenz R, Fede C, Di Benedetto V, Concolino D, Scuderi MG, Salvo V, Gitto E, Cucinotta U, Viola V, Betta P, Cannavò L, Cuppari C Abstract End-stage renal diseases requiring chronic dialysis are rare in childhood and adolescence, but they are associated with high mortality and impaired quality of life (1, 2). The most common disease that causes chronic kidney disease (CKD) is primary glomerular disease (GD), followed by congenital abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract, cystic, hereditary or congenital disorders and, more rarely, sec...

In this study, we evaluated the protective effect of a designed Ang-1 variant (COMP-Ang-1) on peritoneal vascular permeability and peritoneal transport function in a uremic peritoneal dialysis (PD) model. Compared to the sham controls, uremic rats were characterized by decreased pericyte coverage and downregulated endothelial junction expression. The permeability of the peritoneal vasculature to FITC-BSA and FITC-dextran in uremic rats was also higher than that in the sham controls, as well as increased levels of proinflammatory adhesion molecules and cytokines, increased D/Pcr and decreased ultrafiltration. Such changes w...

Conclusions: Female gender, increasing age, American Society of Anesthesiology classification, operative time, or a history of diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, or a bleeding disorder are risk factors for prolonged hospitalization following total shoulder arthroplasty. Level of Evidence: Level III.
