Prevention of iatrogenic risk and screening of chronic kidney disease.

[Prevention of iatrogenic risk and screening of chronic kidney disease]. Nephrol Ther. 2019 Oct 18;: Authors: Vasmant D Abstract Ten percent of the world's population is affected by chronic kidney disease that can lead to kidney failure. In France, nearly three million people are concerned, half of whom are undiagnosed, 85,000 people are on dialysis or waiting for a kidney transplant. Each year, 11,000 new diagnoses of severe renal failure are made, one third of which had not been treated before. Kidney failure is constantly increasing due to the aging of the population and the resurgence of chronic diseases, including obesity and cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes, two conditions that impair renal function. The pharmacist, a local actor, is well placed to help patients adhere to their treatment and manage it to the best of their quality of life. It is up to the pharmacist to check the dosages according to the degree of renal involvement, ideally noted on the prescription or, failing that, by asking the patient the results of his recent biological examinations. The consultation of the pharmaceutical file and, ultimately, the shared medical file, will make it possible, in a concerted management of the patient's care pathway, to also detect possible drug interactions. By dispensing the prescribed drugs, the pharmacist can also warn against those known to be known for their nephrotoxicity, especially nonsteroidal anti...

Authors: Minato S, Miyazawa H, Kitano T, Shindo M, Ito K, Ueda Y, Hirai K, Hoshino T, Ookawara S, Morishita Y Abstract A 49-year-old woman developed eosinophilic peritonitis 2 months after starting continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis because of congenital right kidney hypoplasia and chronic glomerulonephritis. This was shown to have been induced by sucroferric oxyhydroxide, an iron-based phosphate binder, using a drug-induced lymphocyte stimulation test. Her eosinophilic peritonitis was improved after stopping the administration of sucroferric oxyhydroxide without providing any immunosuppressive agents. P...

ABSTRACT Purpose: To compare perioperative outcomes, complications and anastomotic stricture rate in a contemporary series of patients who underwent open radical cystectomy (RC) with modified Wallace anastomotic technique versus traditional ileal conduit. Materials and methods: Study enrolled 180 patients, of whom 140 were randomized and underwent RC; seventy were randomized to group I and the seventy to the group II. For the primary objective, we hypothesized that the rate of ureteroenteric strictures would be at least 20 % lower in the second group. Secondary end points included rate of anastomotic leak, surgical time, d...

Resumo Atualmente a obesidade é considerada um dos maiores desafios da saúde pública. Ela vem sendo enfrentada a partir do incentivo de mudanças comportamentais individuais, exaltando a perda de peso como forma inquestionável de garantir saúde. Tendo em vista este contexto e a importância das Diretrizes brasileiras de obe sidade sobre o campo da obesidade, sua influência sobre a prática profissional, o tipo de tratamento incentivado e o processo decisório em relação aos corpos gordos, foi realizada uma análise deste documento, associad...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of intramuscular (IM) and subcutaneous (SC) sites for ovarian grafts in goats by evaluating follicular morphology and activation, preantral follicle and stromal cell densities, tissue DNA fragmentation, collagen types I and III depositions, and graft revascularizations. Ovarian cortical tissue was transplanted in IM or SC sites and recovered 7 or 15 days post-transplantation. There was a greater percentage of developing follicles and lesser follicular and stromal cell densities in all grafted tissues as compared to ovarian tissues of the control group. The stromal cel...

2017 ended as a banner year for my family, but things didn’t look great at the start. A death sentence met us in a boxing ring, and we had to school ourselves on fighting to live. I never thought much about the 37 million American adults who suffer from kidney disease until my husband Neil became one of them. Celebrating our first year of marriage in 2001, we learned by accident through an unrelated medical exam that my husband has polycystic kidney disease, an illness which causes the kidneys to fill with cysts over time, rendering the organs unable to function properly. There is no cure. There was nothing to do but...

In this study, we investigated the genetic contribution to renal disease in Tiwi Islanders by conducting a GWAS, in which associations were tested between SNP genetic variants and single measure ACR levels. A number of nominally significantly associated SNPs were identified. These SNPs did not reach genome wide significance, probably due to the small sample size. The top eight SNPs were re-tested for association in a separately collected cohort from the same population. Four of these SNPs were significantly associated with ACR in the replication sample (p

Conclusions: In this longitudinal sample of older men, the findings supported the hypothesis that long-term PM2.5 exposure negatively affects renal function and increases renal function decline.
