Angiography and phlebography in a hemodialysis population: A retrospective analysis of interventional results.

Angiography and phlebography in a hemodialysis population: A retrospective analysis of interventional results. Int J Artif Organs. 2019 Jul 15;:391398819863429 Authors: Hadimeri U, Wärme A, Nasic S, Fransson SG, Wigelius A, Stegmayr B Abstract OBJECTIVE: To clarify the reasons and beneficial effects and duration of arteriovenous fistula patency after radiological interventions in arteriovenous fistula. The patients investigated were referred due to arteriovenous fistula access flow problems. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In 174 patients, 522 radiological investigations and endovascular treatments such as percutaneous transluminal angioplasty were analyzed, retrospectively. All investigations were performed due to clinical suspicion of impaired arteriovenous fistula function. RESULTS: Arterial stenosis was significantly more frequent among patients with diabetic nephropathy (p

CONCLUSION: In non-diabetic, non-nephrotic patients undergoing a kidney biopsy for azotemia, 1+ or higher glycosuria, if present, was a good predictor of the diagnosis of ATIN. PMID: 32985319 [PubMed - in process]

Primary Sjogren's syndrome (pSS) is an autoimmune disorder in which lymphocytic infiltration leads to lacrimal and salivary glands dysfunction, which results in symptoms of dryness (xerophthalmia and xerostomia). Extraglandular features are common and may affect several organs. Renal involvement has long been known as one of the systemic complications of pSS. The most classical lesion observed in pSS is tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) and less frequently membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN), which is related to cryoglobulinemia. In some cases, renal biopsy is necessary for the definitive diagnosis of kidney i...

ConclusionTo date, renal biopsy is still the gold standard to diagnose diabetes complicated with renal disease, especially when T2DM patients present atypical DKD symptoms (e.g. absence of diabetic retinopathy, shorter duration of diabetes, microscopic hematuria, sub-nephrotic range proteinuria, lower glycated hemoglobin, lower fasting blood glucose). We conclude that renal biopsy as early as possible is of great significance to enable personalized treatment to T2DM patients.

Recurrent Severe Hyponatremia in a Patient with Sjögren's Syndrome. Electrolyte Blood Press. 2020 Jun;18(1):19-22 Authors: Kim HD, Lee J, Chung BH, Yang CW, Kim YS, Park CW Abstract Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is an autoimmune disease that presents with exocrine gland dysfunction. Renal involvement is common in SS and often results in tubulointerstitial nephritis, renal tubular acidosis, and Fanconi's syndrome. Electrolyte imbalances are commonly the first symptom of renal involvement of SS. The most common feature of dysnatremia in SS is hypernatremia with diabetes insipidus. However, cases of h...

Conclusion: Isolated renal disease induced by hydralazine as part of drug-induced lupus is uncommon. Our patient developed isolated classic lupus nephritis after hydralazine therapy with no associated systemic vasculitis. Treatment required stopping the hydralazine and initiating systemic immunosuppressive therapy to achieve complete remission. PMID: 32612474 [PubMed]

This study aimed to evaluate the renal biopsies performed on type 2 diabetic patients for suspicion of NDRD and to correlate clinicopathological findings. All T2DM patients aged> 18 years were included in this study, who had renal biopsy performed for the following reasons: recent-onset nephrotic syndrome, unexplained rapid deterioration of renal function, proteinuria not accompanied by retinopathy, and unexplained hematuria. Renal biopsy was analyzed by light microscopy and immunofluorescence. Based on biopsy findings, the patients were grouped into three: (i) isolated NDRD, (ii) NDRD ± diabetic nephropathy (DN)...

Abstract The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and the etiologic profile of hypertension (HTN) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). A retrospective analysis was performed on 153 patients with SLE who attended our center for 16 years from January 2000 to December 2016. The diagnosis of SLE was established according to the classification criteria of the American College of Rheumatology in 1990. The prevalence of HTN in patients with SLE was 26.1% (40/153)' with an average delay of appearance of 21 months. There were 37 women and three men with a mean age of 46' eight years (20-70). HTN was associat...

AbstractContrast-enhanced CT is not routinely indicated in uncomplicated urinary infections, but it may be necessary in patients with specific risk factors (i.e., diabetes, immunocompromised patients, history of stones, or prior renal surgery) or in patients not responding to antibiotics and in detecting complications of pyelonephritis. CT is the gold standard for imaging assessment of pyelonephritis severity. Imaging appearance of acute pyelonephritis, including focal (i.e., wedge-shaped zones of decreased attenuation or hypodense mass) and diffuse (i.e., global enlargement, poor parenchymal enhancement, lack of excretion...

This study aimed to investigate the clinical characteristics, risk factors, and outcomes of infection-related hospitalization (IRH) in patients with lupus nephritis (LN) and ANCA glomerulonephritis after intensive immunosuppressive therapy.Methods: Patients diagnosed with LN or ANCA glomerulonephritis who received intensive immunosuppressive therapy at the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University from 2005 to 2014 were enrolled. Demographics, laboratory parameters, immunosuppressive agents, and IRH details were collected. Multivariable Cox regression was used, and hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals...
