The Prevalence of Intradialytic Hypotension in Patients on Conventional Hemodialysis: A Systematic Review with Meta-Analysis

Conclusion: Our meta-analysis suggests that the prevalence of IDH is lower than 12% for both the EBPG and the Nadir #x3c;90 definition which is much lower than stated in most reviews.Am J Nephrol 2019;49:497 –506

Conclusions: In selected cases, particularly in severe diuretic refractory heart failure, PDC placement placed by a nephrologist is feasible with a low rate of complications even in a low-volume center setting. The catheters we placed were all functioning with only minor complications and PD could be started immediately. PMID: 31162993 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Tapolyai M, Faludi M, Berta K, Forró M, Zsom L, PethÅ‘ ÁG, Rosivall L, Fülöp T Abstract Objectives: Diffuse enlargements of arteriovenous dialysis fistulas customarily attributed to either excessive arterial inflow or central outflow stenosis. The relationship between volume status and clinically enlarged (arteriovenous) fistula (CEF) formation in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients is not well understood. Methods: We assessed the pre-dialysis bioimpedance spectroscopy-measured percentage of overhydration (OH%) in 13 prevalent dialysis patients with CEF development and negative ...

Publication date: Available online 30 May 2019Source: Mutation Research/Genetic Toxicology and Environmental MutagenesisAuthor(s): Sevcan Mamur, Deniz Yuzbasioglu, Kadriye Altok, Fatma Unal, Serpil Muge DegerAbstractChronic kidney disease (CKD) is a common health problem. 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 An 84-year-old man with chronic renal failure, anemia, and diabetes was admitted for hemodialysis initiation. His vital signs were stable until the eighteenth hospital day, before having an influenza A virus infection. Three days later, he died of septic shock with severe liver impairment. His leukocyte count, prothrombin time (PT-INR), and liver enzymes, such as AST and ALT, were significantly increased. Hypercytokinemia was also observed. Autopsy revealed bilateral diffuse pneumonia with neutrophil infiltration. The liver showed extensive centrilobular hepatocyte necrosis. Immunohistochemistry for influ...

CONCLUSION: The results of the system were largely similar to the patients' records and showed that the designed system can be used to help physicians to assess the risk of cardiovascular diseases and to improve the quality of care services for diabetic patients undergoing hemodialysis. By predicting the risk of the disease and classifying patients in different risk groups, it is possible to provide them with better care plans. PMID: 31146666 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Postinfectious glomerulonephritis (PIGN) is primarily a disease of childhood. It occurs after upper respiratory tract infection or skin infections. Streptococcus is the most common causative agent, but in the elderly, staphylococcus is the main culprit. In adults, PIGN is more common in immunocompromised patients, particularly diabetics and alcoholics. Here, we report the case of an elderly diabetic male who presented with severe acute kidney injury with active urinary sediment after acute gastroenteritis. Additional analyses revealed a very low serum C3 level and a normal serum C4 level. Renal biopsy showed diffuse prolif...
