Authors: John J, Henry M, Ringoir A, Pinto G, Kesner K, Lazarus J, Sinha S Abstract BACKGROUND: The standard of care for surgically resectable disease renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a nephrectomy. Post-nephrectomy, these patients are at risk for the development of new onset chronic kidney disease or the progression of pre-existing chronic kidney disease. We aimed to report the changes in renal function in patients who had a nephrectomy for RCC. METHODS: This retrospective, descriptive, cross-sectional study identified 137 patients who had a nephrectomy for RCC from 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2017. The pre-nep...

Authors: Dedefo MG, Gemechu DB, Fekadu G, Tekle Dibessa T Abstract Background: Hypertension is a prevalent comorbid condition in diabetes, affecting ∼20-60% of patients with diabetes, depending on obesity, ethnicity, and age. Adults with diabetes historically have two or three times higher rate of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than adults without diabetes. Objective: The aim of this study was to assess blood pressure (BP) control and its predictors among hypertensive diabetic patients on follow-up at the chronic clinic of Nekemte Referral Hospital (NRH) in West Ethiopia. Methods: A cross-sectional study ...
A new review looks at the role of uric acid in the pathogenesis of kidney damage. Could certain therapies help prevent inflammasome activation and provide renoprotective benefits?Current Opinion in Nephrology and Hypertension
CONCLUSIONS: This study suggested a positive association between plasma TMAO and ischemic stroke. Further studies are required to explore the role of plasma TMAO concentrations in predicting stroke risk. PMID: 32641646 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that long-term exposure to SPM is associated with an increased risk of all cardiovascular mortality for men in Ibaraki, Japan. PMID: 32641588 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
HIGH blood pressure is a sneaky beast, but it can be tamed - especially if you eat a particular "superfood". What's the £1 item you need to add into your shopping basket?
The intensity of accumulation and excretion of atrial natriuretic peptide in myocytes of the right atrium in rat models of renovascular hypertension and salt loading was studied by immunocytochemical analysis and transmission electron microscopy. The data suggest that high BP is not the decisive factor affecting secretion of atrial natriuretic peptide in atrial cardiomyocytes. The regulatory mechanisms of the accumulation and release of the peptide from myocyte granules can vary and depend on the pathogenesis of hypertension.
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a heterogeneous group of conditions characterized by fibrosis and/or inflammation of the lung parenchyma. The pathogenesis of ILD consistently results in exertional dyspnea and exercise intolerance. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) provides important information concerning the pathophysiology of ILD that can help inform patient management. Despite the purported benefits of CPET, its clinical utility in ILD is not well defined; however, there is a growing body of evidence that provides insight into the potential value of CPET in ILD. Characteristic responses to CPET in patients with...
ConclusionsAdherence to JFG-ST was positively associated with SMI in Japanese community-dwelling elderly adults aged over 60 years, specifically in men. The country-specific dietary recommendations are required to be developed for sarcopenia prevention.
