Conclusion: In ESRD patients under long-term haemodialysis in whom BP was markedly elevated despite administration of many antihypertensive drugs, renal denervation lowered both ambulatory and office BP. The reduction persisted over a 1-year follow-up.

Authors: Tani M, Tanaka S, Takamiya K, Sakaue M, Ito M Abstract Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death among hemodialysis patients. Hyperphosphatemia induces cardiovascular disease through vascular endothelial dysfunction and calcification. Repetition of a short-term excessive-phosphorus (P) diet causes transient elevations in plasma P and subsequent vascular endothelial dysfunction in normal rats. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of the P fluctuation on vascular calcification and inflammation in rats after unilateral nephrectomy as an early-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) model...

Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-specific disorder affecting ca 3% of all pregnant women. Preeclampsia is the source of severe pregnancy complications. Later life consequences for mother and infant include increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Preeclampsia is caused by the dysfunction of the endothelium with subsequent activation of complement and coagulation systems. HELLP syndrome is considered to be an extreme complication of preeclampsia but it can also present independently. Diagnostic symptoms in HELLP syndrome are Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes, and Low Platelets. Similar phenotype is present in thrombotic microan...

This study aimed to compare infectious and mechanical complications related to urgent-start PD and HD. Secondary outcomes were to identify risk factors for complications and mortality related to urgent-start dialysis. METHODS: A quasi-experimental study with incident patients receiving PD and HD in a Brazilian university hospital, between July 2014 and December 2017. Subjects included individuals with final-stage chronic kidney disease who required immediate RRT, that is, HD through central venous catheter or PD in which the catheter was implanted by a nephrologist and utilized for 72 h, without previous training. Pati...

This article will review the epidemiology of heart failure in ESRD, the pathophysiological derangements of the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system in patients with kidney disease, and the results from case series and trials of the use of MRAs in ESRD with HFrEF. Although limited to several small trials using MRAs in peritoneal and hemodialysis patients with or without HFrEF, the current literature appears to show the potential for clinical benefits with little risk.

AbstractAimTo investigate the experiences and perspectives of everyday life among patients on lifelong haemodialysis and their partners.DesignA qualitative exploratory study with a phenomenological –hermeneutic approach.MethodData were collected through individual interviews. In total, five patients in haemodialysis and their partners were included in the study. Data were analysed with inspiration from Ricoeur's theory around narratives and interpretation on three levels: na ïve reading, structural analysis and critical interpretation and discussion. Data was collected between February 2018–June 2019....

Authors: Ventura CG, Roque FL, Sousa IQ, Lobo RD, Luders C Abstract INTRODUCTION: Chronic hemodialysis (HD) patients are considered to be at high risk for infection. Here, we describe the clinical outcomes of chronic HD patients with influenza A (H1N1) infection and the strategies adopted to control an outbreak of influenza A in a dialysis unit. METHODS: Among a total of 62 chronic HD patients, H1N1 infection was identified in 12 (19.4%). Of the 32 staff members, four (12.5%) were found to be infected with the H1N1 virus. Outcomes included symptoms at presentation, comorbidities, occurrence of hypoxemia, hospit...

CONCLUSION: A lower SUA level in HD patients was associated with a higher risk of all-cause mortality and CV mortality. Moreover, higher SUA concentrations may be cardioprotective in HD patients. PMID: 32223483 [PubMed - in process]
