Number of nephrologists, hemodialysis services, and prevalence trend of chronic kidney disease in the ministry of health of Peru.

[Number of nephrologists, hemodialysis services, and prevalence trend of chronic kidney disease in the ministry of health of Peru]. Rev Peru Med Exp Salud Publica. 2019 Jan-Mar;36(1):62-67 Authors: Herrera-Añazco P, Atamari-Anahui N, Flores-Benites V Abstract We conducted a descriptive and ecological study that evaluated the relationship between the prevalence trend of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), the number of nephrologists, and the number of hemodialysis services of the Ministry of Health (MINSA). The study was based on a secondary analysis of the care provided by MINSA, the Observatory of Human Resources in Health, and the hemodialysis services registered as Health Service Providers of the Intangible Health Solidarity Fund (FISSAL, in Spanish). The adjusted prevalence of CKD was found to have increased from 0.5 to 1.5 per 1,000 patients between 2010 and 2017. The regions with the greatest increase were Tumbes, Ucayali, and Piura. The number of nephrologists per 1,000 CKD patients decreased from 4.4 in 2010 to 1.9 in 2016; and the hemodialysis services contracted by FISSAL increased from 16 in 2012 to 74 in 2019.

Despite a decrease in the incidence of HBV infection, continued vigilance in the form of surveillance is imperative in preventing the spread of this robust DNA virus. Regular review of serologic markers with isolation and decontamination practices as appropriate are paramount to maintaining a safe environment for dialysis to occur. Vaccinat...

AbstractIntroductionChronic kidney disease (CKD) is a systemic disease affecting many organs. Progression of renal failure aggravates ongoing inflammation and increases oxidative stress. In the final stage of CKD, it is necessary to use renal replacement therapy. A side effect of dialysis therapy is the synthesis of proinflammatory factors and increased oxidative stress, which activates platelets and immune cells.Aim of the studyTo determine the regenerative potential of platelets in patients with CKD based on the analysis of the relationships between substances with potential regenerative action, as well as analysis of th...

AbstractBackgroundTranscatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is widely used for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The purpose of this study was to investigate incidence and risk factors of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) after TACE in patients with HCC.MethodsIn this single-center retrospective study, we examined 461 consecutive TACE sessions in 260 patients between January 2003 and October 2015. CIN was defined as an increase in serum creatinine levels by  ≥ 0.5 mg/dl or ≥ 25% from baseline within 72 h after TACE. We calculated incidence rate of CIN and tried ...

The primary etiology of CKD is diabetes mellitus (DM). The aim of our study is to determine the possible role of DM and also effects of other factors such as hypertension, duration of hemodialysis (HD), age, sex, body mass index (BMI), and levels of hemoglobin (HB), intact parathormone (iPTH), and ferritin on genetic alterations in maintenance HD patients...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Central arteriovenous fistula (cAVF) has been investigated as a therapeutic measure for treatment resistant hypertension in patients without advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD). There is considerable experience with the use of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) for hemodialysis in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD). However, there is sparse data on the blood pressure (BP) effects of an AVF among patients with ESRD. We hypothesized that AVF creation would significantly reduce BP compared to patients who did not have an AVF among patients with ESRD before starting hemodialysis. METHODS...
