Possible association between dysnatremias and mortality during hospitalization in patients undergoing acute hemodialysis: analysis from a Peruvian retrospective cohort.

CONCLUSIONS: In our exploratory analysis, only hypernatremia was associated with mortality during hospitalization among patients with AKI or CKD undergoing acute hemodialysis. PMID: 31528981 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This article discusses mechanisms of AGE formation and reviews published literature on SAF as a biomarker and risk factor across the spectrum of kidney disease. Recent findings SAF is elevated in adults and children on dialysis. Higher SAF is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in persons receiving haemodialysis and for all-cause mortality in persons performing peritoneal dialysis, though the increase in discrimination when SAF was added to traditional risk factors was modest. In less advanced chronic kidney disease, higher SAF predicts all-cause mortality and progression. SAF is elevat...

Cinacalcet for secondary hyperparathyroidism in end-stage renal disease patients below age 5 years
. Clin Nephrol. 2019 Oct 07;: Authors: Joseph C, Shah S, Geer J, Juarez-Calderon M, Srivaths PR, Swartz SJ Abstract BACKGROUND: Management of chronic kidney disease mineral bone disorder (CKD-MBD) in pediatric patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is challenging. While the use of calcimimetics is well-studied in adults on dialysis, few studies have been performed in pediatrics. Little is known about the use of cinacalcet in young children with ESRD. The aim of this study was to report the effica...

DISCUSSION: Pregnancy in women with ESRD is complicated by increased adverse maternal and fetal outcomes, these remain high in women with kidney disease notwithstanding advances in obstetric and neonatal care. A HD condition seems to be related to worse outcomes. Preconception counseling and tight control after conception, including multidisciplinary evaluation and individualized therapy should be done.

Authors: Kumar A/L S Katheraveloo K, Suryani Safri L, Guo Hou L, Hafiz Maliki A, Md Idris MA, Harunarashid H Abstract BACKGROUND: Proper vascular access is essential for the long-term survival of chronic haemodialysis patients. The preferred vascular access in terms of long-term function is the native arteriovenous fistula. The success of native arteriovenous fistula depends mainly on a sufficient vein diameter. Thus, any intervention that could increase vein diameter before arteriovenous fistula creation could improve its patency. We conduct a study to investigate the effect of local physical training, namely hand...

CONCLUSION: Diabetics with CKD stage ≥4 (as defined by the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes criteria) constitute a high-risk group for developing AKI after TAVI. In this high-risk subgroup, baseline creatinine in combination with amount of contrast agent used were strong risk factors for developing AKI. AKI in non-diabetics was less predictable by baseline characteristics. PMID: 31567117 [PubMed - in process]

This article described the current state of vascular access management for patients with end-stage renal disease in Singapore. Over the past 10 years, there has been a change in the demographics of end-stage renal disease patients. Aging population and the increase in prevalence of diabetes mellitus has led to the acceleration of chronic kidney disease and increase in incidence and prevalence of end-stage renal disease. Vascular access care has, therefore, been more complicated, with the physical, psychological, and social challenges that occur with increased frequency in elderly patients and patients with multiple ...

This article's objective is to describe CKD's integration into Cuba's National Noncommunicable Diseases (NCD) Program and the main outcomes regarding the burden of CKD and associated risk factors in Cuba. Cuba offers free health services to all its citizens on the basis of a strong primary healthcare system focused on prevention. The CKD National Program is coordinated by the Institute of Nephrology and includes the National Program for Prevention of CKD, which addresses all levels of prevention. The following indicators for renal replacement treatment are from 2016. The incidence of new patients on dialysis was 109 per mi...

ConclusionsWe found a significant association between vitamin D level and depressive symptoms in hemodialysis patients. When analyzed according to gender, this association was found to stand independent of other variables only in males.
