Impact of Renal Function Trajectory on Renal Replacement Therapy and Mortality Risk after Renal Artery Revascularization

Publication date: Available online 14 September 2019Source: Journal of Vascular and Interventional RadiologyAuthor(s): Edwin A. Takahashi, William S. Harmsen, Sanjay MisraAbstractPurposeTo determine the impact of renal function trajectory, defined as the change in renal function over time before and after renal artery stent placement, on long-term risk for renal replacement therapy (RRT) and mortality.Materials and MethodsEstimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFRs) 6–12 months before renal artery stent placement, at the time of intervention, and 6–12 months after intervention were determined in 398 patients. The effect of eGFR change before and after renal artery stent placement was calculated. Cox proportional-hazards ratio was used to determine the risks for RRT and all-cause mortality.ResultsThe risk for RRT was significantly influenced by eGFR change from the time of intervention to follow-up at 6–12 month after treatment (P = .02). In addition, among patients with a postintervention eGFR ≤ 40 mL/min/1.73 m2, for every 1 unit of eGFR increase, there was a significant decrease in RRT and all-cause mortality (P

This study enrolled 14983 eligible subjects stratified into metabolically healthy normal weight (MHNW), metabolically healthy overweight (MHOW), metabolically healthy obesity (MHO), metabolically unhealthy normal weight (MUNW), metabolically unhealthy overweight (MUOW), and metabolically unhealthy obesity (MUO) according to body mass index and metabolic syndrome status (ATP-III criteria). The metabolic healthy phenotype was defined as the absence of both metabolic syndrome and any known diabetes, coronary artery disease, stroke, hypertension or dyslipidemia. Early and advanced CKD were defined as eGFR

Setting aside the mice genetically engineered to destroy senescent cells, the combination of dasatinib and quercetin is the oldest of the senolytic treatments used in animal studies. Senolytic therapies are those that selectively destroy senescent cells in old tissues in order to produce rejuvenation, turning back the progression of numerous age-related conditions. Unusually for early stage research, these initial senolytics are actually quite effective, considered in the grand scheme of things. Thus they have moved directly to human trials in some cases. The first data on their ability to produce the same outcomes in huma...

Up to 50% of patients with type 2 diabetes have chronic kidney disease (CKD) [1], characterized by steady decline in kidney function leading to end stage renal disease (ESRD). To monitor kidney function, to classify the stages and to decide the treatment, estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is commonly used. Indication of renal replacement is always based on eGFR, not albuminuria or proteinuria. Therefore, it is crucial to assess eGFR, followed by identifying and treating at-risk patients for progressive kidney disease.

Authors: Burnier M, Lin S, Ruilope L, Bader G, Durg S, Brunel P Abstract Objective: Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) are among the recommended first-line treatment options in patients with hypertension and chronic kidney disease (CKD). This meta-analysis evaluated the effect of ARB on blood pressure (BP) and renal function in patients with concomitant hypertension and CKD with or without diabetes. Methods: Literature search was performed in PubMed/MEDLINE, EMBASE and BIOSIS to identify parallel-group, randomized controlled trials (≥8 weeks) reporting the effects of ARB on office systolic/diastolic BP (SBP/DBP...

Klarenbach S, Tonelli M Abstract Chronic kidney disease of unknown cause (CKDu) is relatively common in low- and middle-income countries. A high prevalence of CKDu has been reported among the inhabitants of Poncitlan, Mexico. We did a cross-sectional study to compare the characteristics of residents in Poncitlan, a very poor municipality, with those from other municipalities in Jalisco state. We also estimated the prevalence of renal replacement therapy (RRT) in this region. We assessed 51,789 individuals in Jalisco: 16,351 (32.1%) were men, mean age 51.8 ± 15.3 years; 650 (1.3%) were aged

(CKD) requires a systematic approach including all components of the chronic disease model. Some causes require specific management directed at the underlying cause. For many patients, control of cardiovascular risk factors is the most important intervention, as these also promote progressive loss of kidney function. More intensive control of blood pressure and use of renin –angiotensin axis inhibitors are recommended for patients with diabetes mellitus or significant proteinuria, but excessive blood pressure reduction can be harmful.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD), defined by low estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), is common and a risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). The risk rises with decline in eGFR and is maximal (around 20 times that of the general population) in patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) requiring dialysis. Conventional factors such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, smoking and hyperlipidaemia contribute to the risk of progressive CKD and CVD. Other factors including proteinuria, left ventricular hypertrophy, impaired calcium –phosphate homeostasis (PTH, FGF-23), anaemia and inflammation, contribute to ...
