Conclusion: Prophylactic ligature of high-flow AV fistulas after kidney transplantation can avoid high-output heart failure, and a more liberal approach to close AV fistulas might be justified.Am J Nephrol

CONCLUSIONS: Low serum magnesium levels have a greater association with an increased risk of mortality compared to high levels. The type of dialysis fluid affects the magnesium concentration and the risk of death. PMID: 32651086 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Pérez-Gurbindo I, Angulo Carrere MT, Arribas Cobo P, Puerta M, Ortega M, Jaldo MT, de Sequera P, Alcázar R, Pérez-García R, Álvarez-Méndez AM Abstract INTRODUCTION: Postural balance is the result of a complex interaction of sensory input which keeps us upright. Haemodialysis patients have alterations which can lead to postural instability and a risk of falls. Our objective was to analyse postural stability and its relationship with the risk of falls in haemodialysis patients using a force platform. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This was a prospective cross-sectional st...

AbstractBackgroundThis systematic review and meta-analysis were aimed to study the association of tissue accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) measured as skin autofluorescence (SAF) with cardiovascular disease (CVD), cardiovascular mortality (CVM) and all-cause mortality (ACM) in hemodialysis (HD) patients.MethodsAll major databases were searched for relevant studies reporting SAF in dialysis patients. Data for meta-analyses were extracted in the form of odds ratios (OR) and/or hazard ratios (HR) and the pooled overall outcomes were computed for the association of SAF with CVD, CVM, ACM in HD patients usi...

ConclusionsWe have identified SAF as an independent risk factor for CVE and ACM in persons with early CKD. These findings suggest that interventions to reduce AGE accumulation, such as dietary AGE restriction, may reduce cardiovascular risk in CKD, but this requires testing in prospective randomised trials. Our findings may not be applicable to more ethnically diverse or younger populations.

CONCLUSION: Among our HD patients, OCI is considered a comorbid finding associated with mild liver morbidity that warrants strict infection control and periodic testing for blood borne infections. PMID: 32649843 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This article examines clinical factors associated with catheter-related bloodstream infections incidence. METHODS: In this retrospective, single-center study, 413 patients undergoing extracorporeal treatments between 1 February 2014 and 31 January 2017 with 560 central venous catheters were recruited. Clinical parameters, such as gender, age, kidney disease status, diabetes, immunosuppression, and vintage dialysis, were collected at study entry. An incidence rate ratio (95% confidence interval) was calculated to assess the association between catheter-related bloodstream infections incidence rate and each clinical vari...

Authors: Fielding CA, Oliver SW, Swain A, Gagen A, Kattenhorn S, Waters D, Graham M, Gallagher H, Kumwenda MJ, Aitken M Abstract Cannulation is essential for haemodialysis with arteriovenous access, but also damages the arteriovenous access making it prone to failure, is associated with complications and affects patients' experiences of haemodialysis. Managing Access by Generating Improvements in Cannulation is a national UK quality improvement project, designed to improve cannulation practice in the United Kingdom, ensuring it reflects current needling recommendations. It uses a simple quality improvement method, ...

We report a 30-year-old female patient with diabetes who has acromegaloid features, prominent umbilicus, prominent muscles, prominent subcutaneous veins, and gross hepatomegaly. Near-total loss of subcutaneous fat was confirmed by whole-body magnetic resonance imaging and laboratory data revealed significant hypertriglyceridemia, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, and heavy proteinuria with stage IIIa chronic kidney disease. Her blood film revealed thrombocytosis that on further evaluation by bone marrow biopsy was confirmed to be a myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN); essential thrombocytosis (ET). She also had skin lesions th...
