Authors: Kostakis ID, Loukopoulos I Abstract BACKGROUND: There is a renewed interest in using bovine carotid artery grafts for haemodialysis vascular access after recent advances in conduit manufacturing and endovascular management of access-related complications. Our aim was to summarize the results of the recent studies comparing bovine carotid artery grafts with polytetrafluoroethylene grafts as vascular access for haemodialysis. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted for original articles comparing bovine carotid artery with polytetrafluoroethylene grafts for haemodialysis vascular access published betw...

Authors: Shigematsu T, Asada S, Endo Y, Kawata T, Fukagawa M, Akizawa T Abstract Purpose: Evocalcet is a novel oral calcimimetic drug that has demonstrated similar efficacy to cinacalcet in regulating serum parathyroid hormone (PTH), calcium, and phosphate levels, with fewer upper gastrointestinal tract-related adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism undergoing hemodialysis in Japan. We investigated the efficacy and safety of once-daily oral evocalcet under different dialysate calcium concentrations. Patients and Methods: A post hoc analysis by dialysate calcium concent...

CONCLUSION: A significant rise in cerebral oxygenation was observed following the manual compression of arteriovenous fistula. Therefore, the arteriovenous fistula could have a role in impaired cerebral oxygenation in hemodialysis patients. PMID: 32489138 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: depressive symptoms are associated with burden of comorbidities, greater number of disease complications, hemodialytic intercurrences and functional dependence. Physical exercise practice can be an effective care strategy. PMID: 32490957 [PubMed - in process]

(ERA-EDTA) Analysis of a Spanish experience shows that COVID-19 is frequent in hemodialysis patients, who appear to be at risk for worse outcome. A dramatic finding from the own experience, register and published papers from Spain is that the risk of dialysis patients dying of COVID-19 is very high at 1:4. These patients require special protection, and routine unconditional tests should be carried out on patients and staff in dialysis units.

We read with great interest the study by Smyth B, et al.,1 which performed a sub-analysis in 95 participants from the ACTIVE Dialysis trial, who had cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and showed that extended dialysis (median 24 h/week) was associated with reduction in LV mass index (LVMI) and improved ejection fraction (EF), but similar LV end-diastolic volume (EDV) compared with standard dialysis (median 12 h/week) over a 12-month follow-up period. Studies using cardiac MRI in hemodialysis patients are scarce, in part because this method is less widely used in daily practice compared with echocardiography.
