Lost in Translation: Waitlist Status in Kidney Transplant Patients Requiring a Translator

Social factors significantly affect health outcomes, but are often overlooked as causative agents and intervenable targets during program development. While Spanish-speaking patients with end-stage renal disease experience barriers to quality communication and care, there is little research exploring how language affects access to kidney transplantation specifically. We hypothesized that a language barrier, even with the use of translation services, is associated with disproportionate time on the kidney transplant waitlist.

CONCLUSIONS: Our analysis showed that higher serum bicarbonate levels are positively associated with long-term graft and patient survival in kidney transplant recipients. Thus, serum bicarbonate may serve as a predictor and independent risk factor for graft and patient outcome after KTx as has been previously shown for patients with CKD.PMID:34843097 | DOI:10.1007/s40620-021-01197-6

Conclusion: This is the largest cohort study of ON not due to PH. Histologic features differ in patients with enteric versus nonenteric risks. Patients in the enteric group are more likely to have baseline CKD and significant IFTA, while patients in the nonenteric group were more likely to have a greater number of tubules with CaOx crystals and corresponding interstitial inflammation. AKI requiring dialysis at the time of diagnosis was the single most significant predictor of adverse renal outcome.Am J Nephrol

Conclusions: The 6-month TTR identified patients at higher risk of worse outcomes. The subsequent gain of TTR may contribute to better transplant outcomes.

Conclusions: If an inferior polar artery is severed, vascular reconstruction must be performed to preserve the function of the graft. Usually, the gonadal vein is available during donor nephrectomy; therefore, it can be explanted without additional difficulties or incisions. Although we have not reported any complications, further studies are recommended on the long-term outcomes of this alternative approach for the reconstruction of short renal arteries.PMID:34833466 | PMC:PMC8618098 | DOI:10.3390/medicina57111248
