Hypomagnesemia in Hemodialysis Patients: Role of Proton Pump Inhibitors.

Hypomagnesemia in Hemodialysis Patients: Role of Proton Pump Inhibitors. Am J Nephrol. 2014 Feb 21;39(3):204-209 Authors: Alhosaini M, Walter JS, Singh S, Dieter RS, Hsieh A, Leehey DJ Abstract Background: Recent observations have associated hypomagnesemia with increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis patients. Methods: We did a 3-month chart review of 62 chronic hemodialysis patients at a single US hospital. All were dialyzed using a dialysate [Mg] of 0.75-1.0 mEq/l. Patients were divided into two groups: hypomagnesemic (mean predialysis plasma [Mg]

Authors: Silva APR, Strogoff-de-Matos JP, Lugon JR Abstract INTRODUCTION: Metabolic acidosis is associated with the high mortality seen in hemodialysis patients. The panorama of metabolic acidosis in hemodialysis in Brazil is unclear since 1996 when the analysis of bicarbonate levels was no longer a compulsory exam. We aimed to establish the prevalence of metabolic acidosis in a hemodialysis population and analyze the factors associated with low bicarbonate levels. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was carried out to assess the prevalence of metabolic acidosis in adults undergoing regular hemodialysis from Janua...

CONCLUSIONS: Although BIA-guided fluid management improved the fluid overload status better than the traditional clinical method, no significant effect was found on 1-year patient survival and technique survival in patients on peritoneal dialysis. PMID: 32349977 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: PD was associated with increased HR of mortality in the first 8 years, then it was associated with decreased HR of mortality after 10 years. Dialysis modality switch was associated with increased mortality risk, but switch from PD to HD within 6 years did not show significant hazard of mortality.

ConclusionA holistic clinical picture of ESRD that includes multidimensional symptom assessment is warranted for better disease management and resource allocation. Our paper identifies key characteristic of this population and factors contributing to total symptom burden.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Vasodilator nuclear stress testing is frequently ordered for risk stratification prior to kidney transplantation. Since 82Rb-positron emission tomography-computed tomography can measure myocardial blood flow (MBF), the response to vasodilator stress can be verified rendering the results of the scan more reliable. METHODS: We reviewed the MBF response to dipyridamole infusion in 328 patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) prior to transplant (188 hemodialysis-HD, 120 peritoneal dialysis-PD, and 20 pre-dialysis patients-CKD5) and in 100 controls with normal kidney function. A stress/r...

This study aimed to compare infectious and mechanical complications related to urgent-start PD and HD. Secondary outcomes were to identify risk factors for complications and mortality related to urgent-start dialysis. METHODS: A quasi-experimental study with incident patients receiving PD and HD in a Brazilian university hospital, between July 2014 and December 2017. Subjects included individuals with final-stage chronic kidney disease who required immediate RRT, that is, HD through central venous catheter or PD in which the catheter was implanted by a nephrologist and utilized for 72 h, without previous training. Pati...

Abstract Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is currently underutilized in the United States (US), even within resource-rich neighborhoods. We analyzed data from US Renal Data Service to determine PD utilization within the US, New York State (NYS), selected boroughs within New York City (NYC), and Boston, Massachusetts. We then compared the odds of selecting PD with hemodialysis (HD) and analyzed how diabetes mellitus status, age>65 years, gender, and race influenced PD utilization between 2010 and 2016. We then compared a high-volume PD center (HVC) with a low-volume PD center (LVC). The odds of starting PD vs HD we...

CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that CAC progression in dialysis is a complex phenomenon, associated with several risk factors with special regard to elevated basal scores. This progression can be avoided or slowed with appropriate management, which must begin in the early stages of chronic kidney disease. PMID: 32127198 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Medeiros MC, Rocha N, Bandeira E, Dantas I, Chaves C, Oliveira M, Bandeira F Abstract Sclerostin (Scl) is an osteoblast-inhibiting glycoprotein that is secreted mainly by osteocytes and is regulated by hormonal changes and skeletal loading. Decreased physical function and high serum Scl concentrations have been reported in chronic renal failure patients but little is known to date about the differences between diabetic and non-diabetic patients on hemodialysis who are susceptible to both sarcopenia and bone fragility. Objective.To determine the prevalence of sarcopenia and its association with serum Scl co...
