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...

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...

ConclusionsOur results showed that the number of relapses tended to be lower despite a significantly different lower amount of steroid after initiating hemodialysis compared with before initiating hemodialysis, and the burn-out phenomenon specific to uremic patients was inferred. We believe that early tapering of steroids should be considered to avoid death rather than focusing only on relapse.

Objective: To determine the cumulative 30-day and 1-year mortality as well as personal independence after hip fracture in patients on hemodialysis. Design: Prospective, observational cohort study with matched controls. Setting: One teaching hospital, one metropolitan trauma center, one peripheral hospital. Patients and Intervention: Study group: a consecutive cohort of 64 patients with end-stage renal disease receiving chronic hemodialysis who had undergone surgery for a trochanteric or femoral neck fracture from June 2008 to November 2016. Control group: subjects without end-stage renal disease who underwent su...
