Respiratory Failure: A Rare Complication of Chronic Kidney Disease Mineral and Bone Disorder.

Conclusion: Cases of chronic kidney disease mineral and bone disorder with pronounced clinical sequelae occur uncommonly in contemporary practice because of early detection and effective therapies. To our knowledge, this report is the first case in the literature of severe thoracic involvement manifesting as respiratory failure. PMID: 31528143 [PubMed]

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]

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...

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: Garcia-Canton C, Rodenas A, Lopez-Aperador C, Rivero Y, Anton G, Monzon T, Diaz N, Vega N, Loro JF, Santana A, Esparza N Abstract Background: Frailty is an aging-associated state of increased vulnerability, which raises the risk of adverse outcomes. Chronic kidney disease is associated with higher prevalence of frailty. Our aim was to estimate frailty prevalence in a hemodialysis population and its influence on short-term outcomes. Design: Observational prospective longitudinal study of 277 prevalent hemodialysis patients. Frailty was estimated through the Edmonton Frail Scale (EFS). Demographic and clinic...

Conclusion: Considering serum creatinine as gold standard, all renal parameters evaluated, including receiver operating characteristic curve, indicated β2M as the best biomarker, followed by cystatin C, proteinuria and microalbuminuria, while the results for lipocalin-2 and UCreat do not indicate good predictors of renal impairment. It suggests that at least 2 altered biomarkers should be considered to characterize a renal alteration, thereby esta blishing a better therapeutic course for FD patients. If possible, along with serum creatinine, measurement of β2M or cystatin C for renal evaluation of Fabry’s p...

AbstractIntroductionChronic kidney disease (CKD) is a systemic disease affecting many organs. Progression of renal failure aggravates ongoing inflammation and increases oxidative stress. In the final stage of CKD, it is necessary to use renal replacement therapy. A side effect of dialysis therapy is the synthesis of proinflammatory factors and increased oxidative stress, which activates platelets and immune cells.Aim of the studyTo determine the regenerative potential of platelets in patients with CKD based on the analysis of the relationships between substances with potential regenerative action, as well as analysis of th...

Authors: Tarapan T, Musikatavorn K, Phairatwet P, Takkavatakarn K, Susantitaphong P, Eiam-Ong S, Tiranathanagul K Abstract Reduction in renal clearance and removal by hemodialysis adversely affect the level and utility of high-sensitivity troponin I (hsTnI) for diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Furthermore, HD process itself might cause undesirable myocardial injury and enhance post HD hsTnI levels. This comparative cross-sectional study was conducted to compare the hsTnI levels between 100 asymptomatic HD patients and their 107 matched non-chronic kidney disease (CKD) po...

CONCLUSIONS: The effectiveness of cinacalcet were still obviously demonstrated even in chronic HD patients with severe SHPT. In addition, the improvements of bone markers and FGF-23, and stabilization of vascular calcification were observed. Therefore, cinacalcet can provide salutary effects on CKD-MBD in severe SHPT and might be an initially effective PTH-lowering therapy prior to surgical parathyroidectomy as well as an alternative treatment in the patients unsuitable for surgery.

DiscussionThe mortality in the medium and long term of these patients was very high, much higher than that observed in patients undergoing the same procedure not on dialysis. The review is exceptional, and the functional evaluation of the few living patients shows poor clinical–radiological results.ResumenObjetivoEvaluar la incidencia de mortalidad, revisión y valoración funcional en la artroplastia de cadera en pacientes dializados en Uruguay.MétodosSe realizó un estudio observacional analítico de una cohorte histórica de artroplastias de cadera en pacientes con enfermedad r...

Resumo A desnutri ção é um fator relevante na evolução dos pacientes com doença renal crônica (DRC) em hemodiálise (HD), estando associada a maior frequência e duração de internações hospitalares. Objetivou-se avaliar o estado nutricional de pacientes com DRC em HD em unidades públicas ou privadas vincu ladas ao SUS no Distrito Federal. Dados sociodemográficos, bioquímicos e antropométricos foram obtidos de 96 participantes, sendo 35,5% provenientes de hospitais públicos. Os critérios utilizado...
