Serum alkaline phosphatase levels correlate with long-term mortality solely in peritoneal dialysis patients with residual renal function.

Conclusions: Higher serum ALP level is associated with increased mortality solely in PD patients with RRF. PMID: 31409217 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Sugiura E, Dohi K, Tanimura M, Kumagai N, Ishikawa E, Ito M Abstract Extra- and/or intracorporeal renal replacement therapy can improve the cardiorenal hemodynamics in patients with advanced heart failure (HF) refractory to medical therapy and renal failure. Here, we report the case of a 51-year-old woman with inotrope-dependent end-stage HF and chronic renal failure due to anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy, in whom the induction of hemodiafiltration and subsequent chronic peritoneal dialysis (PD) provided a dramatic improvement of her cardiac hemodynamics from restrictive to almost normal physiology as...

Hypertension is a risk factor for renal disease. Therefore, this study was aimedat estimating the prevalence of hypertension in renal patients in Iran through meta ‑analysis.The search was carried out using authentic Persian and English keywords in national and international databases including IranMedex, SID, Magiran, IranDoc, Medlib, ScienceDirect, Pubmed, Scopus, Cochrane, Embase, Web of Science, Medline, and Google Scholar search engine without any time limitation until 2017. Heterogeneity of studies was assessed using theI2index.Data were analyzed using STATA ver 11.In 35 reviewed studies with a sample of 39,621 sub...

Authors: Hu T, Wang B, Liao X, Wang S Abstract Dermatological manifestations are common in systemic diseases, such as chronic kidney disease. The present study investigated the clinical features and possible influencing factors of pruritus in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). A total of 382 inpatients were enrolled from the Department of Nephrology at The Second Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University. A total of 138 subjects were hemodialysis patients, 41 were peritoneal dialysis patients, and 203 were chronic renal failure patients. The patients' clinical performance was observed, and the dat...

This article highlights the importance of considering the diagnosis of associated cardiomyopathy in the acute phase of HUS and the following months.A five-year-old boy presented with HUS with acute renal failure requiring peritoneal dialysis for 24 days. No cardiac signs appeared during the acute phase of the disease. After dialysis and normalization of blood pressure, fluid, and electrolyte disturbance, severe dilated cardiomyopathy with cardiac failure appeared three months later without definite etiology.A review of the literature confirmed the rare and severe nature of cardiac lesions occurring in HUS. Dilated cardiomy...

ConclusionIn DT1 patients, renal transplantation is the best treatment for ESRD despite the use of corticosteroids and anticalcineurins. However, prior explorations of good cardiac function and adequate vascular compliance are essential to reduce the risk of CV.

Authors: Zhan X, Yang M, Chen Y, Zhang L, Yan C, Wang Y Abstract Objective: Accumulating evidence has demonstrated that dialysis patients are at increased risk for stroke. However, the impact of dialysis modalities on stroke risk remains controversial. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine the effect of peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD) on stroke risk. Methods: A systematic search of PubMed, EMBASE, and Web of Science was performed to identify articles comparing the stroke outcomes of dialysis patients. Hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were extracted...

In this report, we describe a 64 ‐year‐old female with a history of inadequate peritoneal dialysis who presented with severe and persistent chronic cough. Extensive white nodular tracheobronchial mucosal changes were identified on bronchoscopy despite the absence of corresponding abnormalities on CT imaging. We believe that the bronchoscopic findings represent a highly unusual presentation of metastatic pulmonary calcification and an unusual cause of chronic cough amongst patients with end‐stage renal failure. Pulmonary calcification can develop as a complication of end ‐stage renal failure. Most patients are asymp...

We report a child with hyperphosphatemia who presented with multiple episodes of neurologic dysfunction involving lower motor neuron facial nerve palsy along with sequential visual loss. He also had an episode of stroke. There was an extensive metastatic calcification of soft tissue and vasculature. Hyperphosphatemia with normal serum alkaline phosphatase, calcium, parathyroid hormone, and renal function was noted. He was managed with hemodialysis and sevelamer (3 months) without much success in reducing serum phosphate level, requiring continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (3 years). Intact fibroblast growth factor 23...
