In conclusion, miR-145 promotes the EMT during the development of peritoneal fibrosis by suppressing FGF10 activity, suggesting that miR-145 represents a potential therapeutic target for managing peritoneal fibrosis.

CONCLUSION: The HDVW was effective at identifying several potential care gaps, and patients were satisfied across several domains of care. This intervention may be valuable in supporting home dialysis patients during care transitions. PMID: 31600760 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

DISCUSSION: Mortality and cardiovascular disease burden have declined for dialysis patients in the United States despite an aging population that is increasingly hypertensive and diabetic. Comorbid disease burdens among HD and PD patients have diverged over time, with PD patients having fewer comorbid conditions.

Purpose of review This review aims to provide an up-to-date summary of the definition, current practice and evidence regarding the role of urgent-start peritoneal dialysis (USPD) in patients with end-stage kidney disease who present with unplanned dialysis requirement without functional access. Recent findings USPD can be broadly defined as peritoneal dialysis initiation within the first 2 weeks after catheter insertion. Published practice patterns, in terms of catheter insertion approach, peritoneal dialysis initiation time or initial fill volume, are highly variable. Most evidence comes from small, retrospective, si...

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...

Patients receiving maintenance hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) are frequently hospitalized. Reducing unplanned 30-day hospital readmissions is a key priority for improving the quality of health ...

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...

CONCLUSION: Most PD units in Australia report that patients on PD swim. Swimming is recommended in either sea water or private swimming pools. The PD catheter and exit site should be covered with either a clear waterproof dressing or colostomy bag. Routine exit-site care should be performed after swimming. Infections were rarely reported in those who swim. Until further research is available, best practice recommendations are warranted for the safety of those on PD who want to swim.
