Authors: Hassuna NA, Mansour M, Ahmed TI, Hassan EA, Hefzy MM, Abd Elghani WM, Hefzy EM Abstract Background: T regulatory cells (Tregs), through variable mechanisms, play a crucial role in Hepatitis C virus (HCV) chronicity and infection tolerance. A great speculation is posed regarding the level, role of Tregs in end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and the presence of associated factors that could influence the Tregs population. Accordingly, we aimed at studying the effect of HCV infection on peripheral CD4+CD25+Tregs population among patients on hemodialysis (HD) as well as the effect of other comorbidities on these ...

This study aimed to determine whether hemodialysis is associated with vitreous haemorrhage in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy. These results suggest that hemodialysis therapy does not seem to be a significant risk for vitreous haemorrhage in proliferative diabetic retinopathy patients. AbstractAims/IntroductionFor diabetes patients undergoing hemodialysis, vitreous hemorrhage seems to be a hemodialysis ‐induced hemorrhagic complication because of the effect of systemic anticoagulation. However, it is unclear whether hemodialysis is associated with vitreous hemorrhage in diabetes patients. We therefore ca...

Authors: Takashima T, Nakashima Y, Suenaga A, Yamashita Y, Nonaka Y, Fukuda M, Rikitake S, Miyazono M, Rikitake K, Ikeda Y Abstract A radiocephalic arteriovenous fistula in the anatomical snuffbox (tabatière region) was first described in 1969 as the most peripheral site for arteriovenous fistula in the upper limb. In cases in which the internal diameter of the first dorsal metacarpal vein under avascularization is ⩾2.0 mm, we have adopted a new operative technique for creating a radial artery-first dorsal metacarpal vein arteriovenous fistula in the first interdigital space of the dorsal hand, which lies ...

Abstract Animal models of chronic kidney failure (CKF) have been developed for the pharmacodynamic evaluation of various phosphate binders that are used clinically to treat hyperphosphatemia in patients with chronic kidney disease. However, these models represent different disease states and severities, depending on the experimental conditions and are not clearly defined for pharmacological evaluation. In addition, experimental models have not yet been established for artificial dialysis. The purpose of this study was to confirm the utility of the various rat models of CKF and the mini-pig model of hemodialysis as...

Authors: Ashraf S, Ilyas S, Siddiqui F, Ando T, Shokr M, Panaich S, Briasoulis A, Afonso L, Khan M Abstract The introduction of wearable cardioverter defibrillators (WCD) provides a novel means of protection in select patients at high risk for sudden cardiac death. The WCD can safely record and terminate life-threatening arrhythmias. In this review, we explore the data behind indications for WCD use and discuss its limitations. We searched PubMed, Google Scholar and Cochrane Central Register of controlled trials for relevant studies. The VEST trial, the first randomised controlled trial on WCD use, did not show sta...
