Exsanguination from a puncture wound to arteriovenous fistula as the method of suicide in a chronic kidney disease patient - Zivkovi ć V, Cvetković D, Nikolic S.

In this paper we present a case of a 65-year-old man, with chronic kidney insufficiency treated with hemodialysis, found dead by his wife, lying in his bed. Based on autopsy findings, toxicological analysis, the police report and circumstances of death, it...

Conclusion A great deal of progress is being made in the matter of treating aging: in advocacy, in funding, in the research and development. It can never be enough, and it can never be fast enough, given the enormous cost in suffering and lost lives. The longevity industry is really only just getting started in the grand scheme of things: it looks vast to those of us who followed the slow, halting progress in aging research that was the state of things a decade or two ago. But it is still tiny compared to the rest of the medical industry, and it remains the case that there is a great deal of work yet to be done at all...

We designed this study to assess the prevalence of risk behaviors among teens with CKD in the United States and to investigate any associations between risk behavior and patient or disease characteristics. Methods: After informed consent, adolescents with CKD completed an anonymous, c...

Authors: Chiu LW, Lin KY, Chang CY, Lin WC, Wan L Abstract Objective: To evaluate the suicide rate among patients oophorectomized for benign conditions and its association with confounding comorbidities. Method: We conducted a population-based, retrospective cohort study of women aged ≥20 years that underwent oophorectomy including unilateral or bilateral in laparotomy or laparoscopy for benign conditions during 2000-2013. A total of 145,588 oophorectomized and 582,352 non-oophorectomized women were included with an average follow-up time of 7 years. The comorbidities assessed were hypertension (HT...

In conclusion, we show here that sEVs are responsible for mediating paracrine senescence and speculate that they could be involved in inducing bystander senescence during therapy-induced senescence or aging. In fact, when compared to soluble factors, sEVs have different biophysical and biochemical properties as they have a longer lifespan than do soluble factors and they are more resistant to protease degradation. The idea that blocking sEV secretion could be a potential therapeutic approach to alleviate senescence "spreading" during chemotherapy-induced senescence or in aging tissues presents itself as a very at...

Authors: Tabibzadeh N, Vrtovsnik F, Serrano F, Vidal-Petiot E, Flamant M Abstract Lithium salts are the main treatment of bipolar disorder, which is characterized by potentially life-threatening maniac and/or depressive episodes. They have proven efficient in the prevention and treatment of acute episodes as well as in the prevention of suicidal risk. However, this efficacy is counterbalanced by a narrow therapeutic range that can lead to potentially harmful overdose, and by adverse long-term events. Nevertheless, they remain first-line treatment, notwithstanding therapeutic alternatives. In this review, we will de...

Authors: Gupta S, Patil NM, Karishetti M, Tekkalaki BV Abstract Background: Prognosis and associated complications of chronic kidney disease (CKD) may result in psychological distress and mood disorders especially depression. Prevalence and clinical correlates of depression in CKD patients in the Indian context are not well studied and established. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study included 84 CKD patients. The diagnosis was made based on the diagnostic and statistical manual, 4th edition criteria; psychiatric disorders were ruled out through the mini-neuropsychiatric interview. Montgomery-Asber...

In a case-control study of over 5600 adults from Taiwan published in this month's Journal of Cardiac Failure, Liu and colleagues observed that individuals diagnosed with HF within the past two years were at significantly elevated risk for suicide, even when accounting for physical problems, psychiatric illness, and other suicide risk factors.1 Furthermore, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, cerebrovascular disease, and cancer were associated with an increased risk of suicide in adjusted analyses.
