Symptoms Related to Moderate Skeletal-Related Events as Clues for the Diagnosis of Bone Metastasis.

CONCLUSION: The results of the present study suggest that symptoms related to SREs can be used to diagnose bone metastasis in the absence of a screening test. Bone metastasis should be diagnosed as often as possible based on symptoms related to moderate SREs and should be treated as soon as possible before patients develop severe SREs.

DiscussionThe proposed study has several methodological benefits. First, using white noise is a suitable control condition for addressing the role of sound in pain management. Additionally, using a crossover design with repeated measurements can help control individual differences between participants, which should better distinguish between- and within-participant variability. Overall, music therapy is a safe and inexpensive intervention that does not have the problematic side effects typically associated with pharmacological treatment. If effective, music therapy can be easily implemented for reducing pain and anxiety du...

CONCLUSIONS: In patients with PAD, OS was largely defined by comorbidities but not by lesion location. The background risk factors, underlying comorbidities, and event rates were different according to PAD location, suggesting that stratified treatment should be established for different patient populations.

CONCLUSIONS: This model demonstrated favorable short- and long-term clinical benefits associated with the use of ERC in patients with CKD Stage 3 and 4 with SHPT and VDI, suggesting ERC may be cost-effective from the Medicare perspective compared to paricalcitol.

This study aims to analyze the prevalence and to concentrate on the key risk factors that are responsible for hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in patients on HD visiting two dialysis centers in the city of Quetta in southwestern Pakistan. The overall incidence of HBV was found to be 16.1%, the overall incidence of HCV was found to be 43.2%, and two patients (1.6%) were found to be positive for both HBV and HCV. HIV was not found among patients seen at both hospitals during the study period. The main risk factors for development of a viral infection were the ...

Sodium toxicity in peritoneal dialysis: mechanisms and "solutions". J Nephrol. 2019 Nov 16;: Authors: Borrelli S, De Nicola L, Minutolo R, Perna A, Provenzano M, Argentino G, Cabiddu G, Russo R, La Milia V, De Stefano T, Conte G, Garofalo C, Research Group of Peritoneal Dialysis of Italian Society of Nephrology Abstract The major trials in peritoneal dialysis (PD) have demonstrated that increasing peritoneal clearance of small solutes is not associated with any advantage on survival, whereas sodium and fluid overload heralds higher risk of death and technique failure. On the other hand, high...

CONCLUSION: Over time on dialysis, use of non-CPB increased and medication costs increased accordingly. Many patients continued to change drugs between CPBs and non-CPBs due to the restricted criteria of the health insurance. Further outcome research is necessary to evaluate the appropriateness of the clinical practice in which CPBs and non-CPBs are alternately used.
