Long-Term Outcomes of Endovascular Stenting for Blunt Renal Artery Injuries with Stenosis: A Report of Five Consecutive Cases.

CONCLUSIONS: Renal artery stenting for hemodynamically stable blunt renal artery injuries with stenosis is suggested to be safe and helps in avoiding long-term hemodialysis and renovascular hypertension. PMID: 31292329 [PubMed - in process]

This study aims to understand the progression of two chronic diseases in the Australian health context. It specifically focuses on the comorbidity progression of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), as the prevalence of these chronic diseases in Australians is high. A research framework is proposed to understand and represent the progression of CVD in patients with T2DM using graph theory and social network analysis techniques. Two study cohorts (i.e., patients with both T2DM and CVD and patients with only T2DM) were selected from an administrative dataset obtained from an Australi...

SUMMARY Type 2 diabetes mellitus is an important public health problem, with a significant impact on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and an important risk factor for chronic kidney disease. Various hypoglycemic therapies have proved to be beneficial to clinical outcomes, while others have failed to provide an improvement in cardiovascular and renal failure, only reducing blood glucose levels. Recently, sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, represented by the empagliflozin, dapagliflozin, and canagliflozin, have been showing satisfactory and strong results in several clinical trials, especially regarding...

ConclusionsPatients with a mutation in the MMAA gene are sensitive to treatment with hydroxocobalamine, but the inclusion of appropriate treatment does not protect against neurodevelopmental disorders and chronic kidney disease.

Abstract Treat to target is defined by a process defining a level of a relevant outcome of the disease to be reached in order to prevent subsequent disability The benefit of a Treat to Target strategy has been clearly demonstrated in chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. A better knowledge of the natural history of chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases including axial spondyloarthritis has emphasized the deleterious long term effect of a sustained inflammation, usually evaluated by disease activity markers. The Treat to Treat strategy in axial spondyloarthritis has emerged since the possibility of ...

Conclusion Despite similar dialysis intensity, the composite neonatal morbidity was higher in women with renal failure caused by diabetes or lupus compared with other etiologies. Our findings suggest that pregnancy outcome in women receiving dialysis is dependent on both the intensity of dialysis as well as the etiology of renal failure.

A 74-year-old man was admitted to the nephrology ward for acute kidney injury (AKI). His medical history was remarkable for hypertension, coronary artery bypass grafting, early-onset gouty arthropathy, and slowly progressive stage IIIb chronic kidney disease of probable vascular origin. His medications included amlodipine, ramipril, furosemide, moxonidine, aspirin, simvastatin, omeprazole, and allopurinol. The patient further mentioned he had been taking a “rejuvenating powder” ordered on the Internet a week beforehand.

AbstractConclusive evidence demonstrates that the sympathetic nervous system activation is a hallmark of congestive heart failure. This has been shown via a variety of biochemical, neurophysiological, and neuroimaging approaches for studying human sympathetic neural function. The sympathetic activation appears to be an early phenomenon in the clinical course of the disease, closely related to its severity and potentiated by the concomitant presence of other comorbidities, such as obesity, diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, and renal failure. The adrenergic overdrive in heart failure is associated with oth...

AbstractUrinary tract infection (UTI) is defined as the growth of a significant number of microorganisms of a single species in the urine, in the presence of symptoms. Symptoms in young children are non-specific such as fever without focus; young infants may manifest with irritability, failure to thrive, jaundice, vomiting and diarrhea. Older children usually have symptoms of cystitis or pyelonephritis. Symptoms of cystitis are dysuria, frequency, new onset incontinence and malodorous urine while symptoms of pyelonephritis are high grade fever, flank pain and vomiting. Rapid urine testing by microscopy for pus cells, dipst...

α-Klotho, a multifunctional protein, has been demonstrated to protect tissues from injury via anti-oxidation and anti-inflammatory effects. The expression of α-klotho is regulated by several physiological and pathological factors, including acute inflammatory stress, oxidative stress, hypertension, and chronic renal failure. Exhaustive exercise has been reported to result in tissue damage, which is induced by inflammation, oxidative stress, and energy metabolism disturbance. However, little is known about the effects of exhaustive exercise on the expression of α-klotho in various tissues. To determine the...
