CMS: Medicare Program; End-Stage Renal Disease Prospective Payment System, Payment for Renal Dialysis Services Furnished to Individuals With Acute Kidney Injury, End-Stage Renal Disease Quality Incentive Program, and End-Stage Renal Disease Treatment Choices Model
Notice of a proposed rule from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) making changes related to End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) payments for calendar year 2022 and proposing updates to the payment rate for renal dialysis services furnished by an ESRD facility to individuals with acute kidney injury (AKI). Also includes proposed updated requirements for the Quality Incentive Program (QIP), among other things. Comments on the proposed rule are due August 31, 2021.
CONCLUSIONS: Findings of our Limiting acute kidney injury Progression In Sepsis trial simulation confirmed that (tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-2)•(insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 7) could identify patients with different rates of progression to moderate/severe acute kidney injury, death, or dialysis in 72 hours. The Limiting acute kidney injury Progression In Sepsis protocol algorithm is therefore feasible in terms of identifying suitably high-risk individuals for kidney-sparing sepsis bundle.
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 two hemodialysis patients with RA who presented with a complication of severe pancytopenia after treatment with MTX. After receiving various supportive and blood purification treatments, both patients recovered. We reviewed twenty-four pancytopenia patients on dialysis associated with methotrexate. Among these patients, high morbidity and mortality were observed, indicating that MTX should be used cautiously in the absence of alternatives in such a population. Compared with the patients who recovered, the deceased patients showed a lower level of leukocytes. Which dialysis method might be the best choice is uncl...
This study describes a previously unpublished case of AKI from envenoming by T. erythrurus in Yangon, and reviews cases of AKI following bites by this species and T. albolabris in Myanmar. This confirms that, at least on rare occasions, Trimeresurus spp. envenoming can cause AKI. This has important implications for snakebite management in Myanmar as the finding of local swelling, coagulopathy and AKI is generally considered pathognomonic of D. siamensis envenoming. Further collection of confirmed Trimeresurus spp. bites is required in Myanmar in order better to define the syndrome of envenoming and to assess the possible n...

CONCLUSION: We found a more severe form of clinical manifestation in pediatric SLE patients at the time of the first presentation in the form of severe renal and extrarenal manifestation compared to other parts of the country.PMID:34558344 | DOI:10.1177/09612033211045069
We present a case report of a 78-year-old male with acute intermittent porphyria and renal failure treated with peritoneal dialysis resulting in complete discontinuance of longstanding painful and disabling porphyria attacks.PMID:34558740 | DOI:10.1111/sdi.13025
CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest a possible alternative of arterial blood gas analysis in AVF/graft for hemodialysis patients. This could result in making an uncomfortable procedure almost painless and reducing complications. Future research should take place to include anatomical characteristics of the AVF or the circulation of recirculation.PMID:34558726 | DOI:10.1111/sdi.13022
