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...

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...

This case report and Video demonstrate the multidisciplinary management of a complex patient with hemodialysis access and indwelling pacemaker for whom multiple attempts at balloon angioplasty for superior vena cava syndrome ...

ConclusionsIn this pilot randomized controlled trial studying patients requiring initiation of HD, we found no difference in absolute SBP decline between those who received mannitol and those who received saline solution. However, there were fewer overall IDH events and a nominally lower risk for dialysis sessions being complicated by IDH in the mannitol group. A larger multicenter randomized controlled trial is warranted.FundingGovernment funding to an author (Dr Mc Causland is supported by National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases grant K23DK102511).Trial RegistrationRegistered at ClinicalTrials.go...
