Renal Data from the Arab World Dialysis in Kuwait: 2013-2019. Saudi J Kidney Dis Transpl. 2020 Jul-Aug;31(4):826-830 Authors: AlSahow A, AlHelal B, Alyousef A, AlQallaf A, Marzouq A, Nawar H, Fanous G, Abdelaty M, Bahbahani Y, AlRajab H, AlTerkait A, Ali H Abstract The total number of end-stage kidney disease patients treated with dialysis in 2019 in Kuwait was 2230, with a 6% increase from the year before. Dialysis prevalence was 465 per million population (PMP) and dialysis incidence was100 PMP. Kuwaiti nationals represented 70% of the dialysis population and males represented 52%. Of the same population, 59% had diabetes. Hepatitis C virus affected
Conclusion: Certain components of online reviews are significantly correlated with ICH-CAHPS measures of patient experience. Additionally, online reviews come with narrative comments that can offer specific insights into positive and negative aspects of patient care that cannot always be elucidated by numeric survey questions. Online reviews may have utility as an adjunctive source of information to patient experience surveys such as the ICH-CAHPS.
We present a rare, intradural manifestation of CPPD requiring surgical intervention, with a review of pertinent differential diagnoses on imaging. A 48-year-old male presented with urinary retention, and was found to have an intradural lesion with peripheral enhancement on gadolinium T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging. Due to the patient ’s progressive neurological deterioration, he was taken for a minimally invasive approach for resection of the lesion. Histopathological analysis revealed crystal deposits with rhomboidal birefringence consistent with CPPD. The imaging features of this lesion were atypical for an...
This study set out to assess for any such associations.Materials and methodsA retrospective review was completed of consecutive patients that had CTA neck imaging prior to CEA. Body mass index (BMI), tobacco and/or alcohol use, and history of diabetes and/or hypertension were collected from patients ’ medical records. Lab values were dichotomized based on values: total cholesterol
We report 3 examples of this unusual condition on the feet of 2 male and one female subjects (aged, 68, 69, and 80 years) and make a review of the 31 cases available in the literature. Two of our cases are associated with highly uncommon features, such as transepidermal calcium elimination and concomitant calcaneal spur.
TYPE 2 diabetes could be prevented by intermittent fasting, according to a new study. This type of diet involves eating your daily calories within a consistent window of eight to 10 hours.
Diseases linked to vitamin D deficiency include cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.
CONCLUSION: These results will provide a new perspective for future research in necroptosis.PMID:34561980 | DOI:10.2174/1567202618666210923150251
Conclusion Targeting MC has the potential to extend the longevity of insulin infusion sets by mitigating the inflammatory response. Future studies should be directed at employing other MC models, such as newer Cre/loxP mouse strains, to confirm the sentinel role of MC in insulin infusion therapy.PMID:34561836 | DOI:10.1007/s13346-021-01070-w

Curr Opin Organ Transplant. 2021 Sep 24. doi: 10.1097/MOT.0000000000000923. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPURPOSE OF REVIEW: Transplantation continues to be the only treatment option for end-stage organ failure when other interventions have failed. Although short-term outcomes have improved due to advances in perioperative care, long-term outcomes continue to be adversely affected by chronic rejection. Little is known about the role microbiota play in modulating alloimmune responses and potentially contributing to graft failure. Initial data have identified a correlation between specific changes of the recipient and/or don...
