Local therapy with ozone in the management of the exit site in a patient undergoing peritoneal dialysis.

Local therapy with ozone in the management of the exit site in a patient undergoing peritoneal dialysis. J Biol Regul Homeost Agents. 2019 Sep-Oct;33(5 Suppl. 1):91-94 Authors: special issue: “Focus on pediatric nephrology”, Chimenz R, Sallemi A, Fusco M, Cannavò L, Salvo V, Marseglia L, Cucinotta U, Gitto E, Concolino D, Arrigo T, Salpietro C Abstract The natural history of children with end stage renal disease is dialysis until a transplant can be done. There are two types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis (1). Peritoneal dialysis is preferred in young children because getting the vascular access for hemodialysis is challenging (2). Catheters should be surgically placed in a paramedian or lateral abdominal region with an extremity located in Douglas' pouch. PMID: 31630721 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, our aim was to verify whether dialysis type determined outcomes on the pancreas graft and whether dialysis type was a risk factor for graftectomy or recipient death. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our study group included 44 simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplant patients. Analyzed parameters included type and duration of dialysis treatment, age, sex, long-term pancreas graft survival and patient survival, overall mortality, and number of graftectomies. RESULTS: Of 44 patients, 3 (7%) required a graftectomy. Mortality rate of the group was 5%. Of 44 patients, 33 had hemodialysis and 11 had peritoneal ...

It is clinically and genetically heterogeneous and in its natural history, renal disease progresses from microscopic haematuria to proteinuria, and finally to progressive renal insufficiency. AS is caused by an inherited defect in...

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...

Hypertension is a risk factor for renal disease. Therefore, this study was aimedat estimating the prevalence of hypertension in renal patients in Iran through meta ‑analysis.The search was carried out using authentic Persian and English keywords in national and international databases including IranMedex, SID, Magiran, IranDoc, Medlib, ScienceDirect, Pubmed, Scopus, Cochrane, Embase, Web of Science, Medline, and Google Scholar search engine without any time limitation until 2017. Heterogeneity of studies was assessed using theI2index.Data were analyzed using STATA ver 11.In 35 reviewed studies with a sample of 39,621 sub...

CONCLUSIONS: The study highlights the exceptionally high cost of dialysis treatment. Dialysis should be made more accessible by implementing measures to address the main cost drivers. Moreover, a comprehensive approach that includes prevention of CKD at primary healthcare level, an organ donation programme and an effective kidney transplant programme is urgently required in Limpopo. Further research is required to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the PPP approach. PMID: 31456551 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to identify the access to these resources on a global scale using data from the multinational survey conducted by the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) (Global Kidney Health Atlas (GKHA) project), with emphasis on developing nations. For data analysis, the 125 participating countries were sorted into the 4 World Bank income groups: low income (LIC), lower-middle income (LMIC), upper-middle income (UMIC), and high income (HIC). A severe shortage of nephrologists was observed in LIC and LMIC with

Abstract Chronic kidney disease (CKD) particularly in its most severe form, end-stage renal disease (ESRD), is highly prevalent globally. Although both the incidence and prevalence appears to be increasing, the rate of increase is far higher in developing countries, probably as a result of underdevelopment, high incidence of communicable and noncommunicable diseases, poverty as well as inaccessible, unavailable, or unaffordable treatment modalities. The epidemiology differs remarkably between developing and developed economies - it afflicts the young and middle-aged in the former and older individuals in the latte...
