We report outcomes of our initial experience with LP in 38 children from 2 months of age. Materials and Methods From June 2015 to December 2017 38 children aged 2-60 months (mean age 1.7 years) underwent LP for correction of PUJ obstruction. The mean pre operative anteroposterior diameter of the renal pelvis (APD) was 43,5mm and all patients had hydronephrosis (APD 21.4-76 mm) and obstructed curve on diuretic renogram. Anderson-Hynes pyeloplasty was the performed technique. Results are reported. Results Mean operative time was 107 minutes (70-180) with no conversion to open procedure. Pain control was needed mainly in the ...

CONCLUSION: MS is beneficial where the main aim is to attain a significant and long-lasting weight loss results. The RCTs have depicted the superiority which surgical mechanisms hold over medically based therapy, for enhancing glycaemic control, and achieving remission of diabetes. This type of surgery improves life quality, reduces incidences of other obesity and diabetes relating diseases like microvascular illness, sleep apnea, fatal disorder, and fatty liver disease.

ConclusionsOur analysis suggests novel secretomic upregulation in PBMCs of patients with CKD and ESRD, act synergistically with uremic toxins, to promote inflammation and potential disease progression. Our findings have provided novel insights on PBMC secretome upregulation to promote disease progression and may lead to the identification of new therapeutic targets for novel regimens for CKD, ESRD and their accelerated cardiovascular disease, other inflammations and cancers.

GeorasAbstractAspergillus molds are ubiquitous environmental molds that can cause devastating invasive infections in immunocompromised patients. These infections often go unrecognized in critically ill patients. This case describes a 68 year-old female resident of a long-term nursing facility with history of dementia, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease with cirrhosis, chronic kidney disease stage III and insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes who presented with vomiting, diarrhea and...

Authors: Loutradis C, Sarafidis P Abstract Introduction: Hypertension is the most common co-morbidity in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), with prevalence gradually increasing across CKD Stages to the extent that about 90% of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients are hypertensives. Several factors contribute to blood pressure (BP) elevation and guide the therapeutic interventions that should be employed in these patients.Areas covered: This review summarizes the existing data for the management of hypertension, regarding optimal BP targets and the use of major antihypertensive classes in patients with C...

After the diagnosis of chronic kidney disease (CKD), a restricted diet may be necessary to avoid additional stress on the kidneys, as well as avoiding further health complications.1 With the vast information available on the internet, one can find countless recipes for every meal, health concern, and occasion. Recipes and meal ideas for CKD are no exception. However, one should exercise caution and use their best judgment when using recipes from online searches as not all sources are credible. In addition, while there is an abundance of lunch and dinner ideas, breakfast ideas for patients with CKD are in a seemingly shorter supply.
