Ignoring a problem won ’t make it go away. I say this all the time, with love and compassion, to my patients who are having trouble accepting a diagnosis. Ignoring your Type 2 Diabetes, for example, won’t make it any less real.

Authors: Wang S, Shang J, Xiao J, Zhao Z Abstract Aims: The aim was to determine whether anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-positive serology in patients with lupus nephritis (LN) is associated with different clinicopathologic features and outcomes.Methods: In our retrospective analysis, 283 patients were enrolled between 2013 and 2018. Thirty-six patients were ANCA-positive, and this group was compared with the remaining 247 patients who were confirmed as ANCA-negative at the time of biopsy.Results: ANCA-positive LN patients exhibited higher anti-dsDNA antibody titers and serum creatinine levels and lower...

AbstractSummaryThe receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappa B ligand (RANKL)/RANK/osteoprotegerin system is dysregulated in hyperparathyroid bone diseases. The introduction of denosumab preceding elective surgery as an alternative option when surgery is not possible immediately.IntroductionThe effects of denosumab on vascular calcification in patients with chronic renal failure and low bone mass have been a subject of interest. Therefore, this investigation aimed to determine the short-term changes in vascular calcification after denosumab treatment using a serial electrocardiography-gated computed tomography (CT) to mea...

Authors: Lareyre F, Carlier M, Raffort J Abstract The presence of accessory renal artery is a frequent anatomic variation that can challenge abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. Here, we show an image of an abdominal aortic aneurysm extended to multiple accessory renal arteries in a patient known for an end-stage renal failure. This case raises the questions of the criteria that should be taken in consideration for an optimal management of accessory renal artery during AAA repair.

Purpose of review The goal of this review is to present recent models of the filtration barrier that may suggest mechanism-based treatments for proteinuric renal disease. The vast majority of renal failure occurs in diseases of glomerular proteinuria. The physiology of the filtration barrier remains incompletely understood, preventing invention of mechanism-based therapies. Research is currently dominated by molecular biology approaches to the kidney instead of engineering-based filtration and transport models. Recent findings Reexamination of two older paradigms (basement membrane and slit diaphragm) and critical ana...
