IJERPH, Vol. 16, Pages 4459: Illness Perceptions, Self-Care Management, and Clinical Outcomes According to Age-Group in Korean Hemodialysis Patients International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph16224459 Authors: Sisook Kim Eunhye Kim Eunjung Ryu Illness perception, formed in social-cultural contexts, is the driving force for health behavior. Age difference can affect health outcomes due to its association with socioeconomic status. The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between illness perception, self-care management, and clinical outcomes according to the age group in hemodialysis patients. A cross-sectional study was conducted. Using the Brief Illness Perception Questionnaire (BIPQ) and Patient Activation Measure (PAM) 13, clinical outcomes, such as serum phosphorus, potassium, hemoglobin, and albumin were investigated in maintenance hemodialysis patients. Illness perception, self-care management, and clinical outcomes in 189 hemodialysis patients were different according to age group. Younger hemodialysis patients had the lowest illness perception and the highest serum phosphorus. Illness perception was associated with self-care management and clinical outcomes. After the adjusted age, the association between illness perception and self-care management and the association between illness perception and phosphorus were reduced, while the association between illness perception and potassium increased.

ConclusionsOur study found that the decision-making process in ESRD is multifactorial and involves not only medical factors, but also assessment of social factors, quality of life, and patient/family preference. Bettering our understanding of this decision-making process will positively impact patients and families through more informed decision-making.

AbstractCardiovascular disease (CVD) is a life-limiting comorbidity in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). In childhood, imaging studies have demonstrated early phenotypic characteristics including increases in left ventricular mass, carotid artery intima-media thickness, and pulse wave velocity, which occur even in young children with early stages of CKD. Vascular calcifications are the signature of an advanced phenotype and are mainly found in adolescents and young adults treated with dialysis. Association studies have provided valuable information regarding the significance of a multitude of risk factors in prom...

AbstractBackgroundEnteral feeding by tube in chronic kidney disease (CKD) before 2 years of age improves growth. Whether it is effective after this age is unknown. We assessed whether height and weight SDS changed after tube feeding was started in children with CKD above 2 years of age.MethodsRetrospective study of pre-transplant, pre-pubertal children (

ConclusionsFor closed-circuit dialysis using an RBC solution, the formula [dialysate flow rate (mL/min)  × time of dialysis (min)]/extracorporeal volume (mL) would be a better parameter to estimate efficacy, compared with other metrics. Additionally, the citrate concentration can be readily estimated from the ionized calcium concentration during closed-circuit dialysis.

Abstract Failure to mature and venous neointimal hyperplasia formation are the two major causes of hemodialysis arteriovenous fistula (AVF) vascular access failure. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is the first-line treatment for both of these conditions, but clinically, women have decreased patency rates when compared to men. The hypothesis to be tested in the present paper was that female mice after PTA of venous areas of higher intimal thickening have increased gene expression of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) and transforming growth factor-β receptor 1 (TGFβ-R1) accompani...

Chen, Anna Jin, Connie M. Rhee, Kamyar Kalantar-Zadeh, Elani StrejaRationale &ObjectivePatients receiving twice-weekly or less-frequent hemodialysis (HD) may need to undergo higher ultrafiltration rates (UFRs) to maintain acceptable fluid balance. We hypothesized that higher UFRs are associated with faster decline in residual kidney function (RKF) and a higher rate of mortality.Study DesignRetrospective cohort study.Setting &Pa...
