Dialysis is often considered slow, repetitive, and with programmed intervals. Patients often perceive it as time taken from their lives with a sense of ineluctability and emptiness, engendering a negative emotional and cognitive perception of the world and one's place in it. Today, it is possible to improve the quality of life of patients during hemodialysis using virtual reality (VR). This creation of a true multisensory experience may absorb the patient's perceptions during hemodialysis, improving his/her quality of life. An Italian multicenter, longitudinal experimental study will be conducted with a randomized, pre-pos...

Publication date: Available online 15 October 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Akito Ito, Mizuki Hisano, Makoto Takahashi, Naoki Komine, Takaya Abe, Wataru ObaraAbstractA 73-year-old-male patient with hypertension and grade 3B chronic kidney disease underwent radical nephrectomy in the year 2000. As the renal function gradually worsened, the patient was started on hemodialysis in 2003. Eleven years after nephrectomy, the metastases were pointed out. The patient received sunitinib as first-line therapy. Thereafter, as the metastatic lesions became larger, we initiated nivolumab therapy (3 mg/m2 every 2 weeks). Aft...

AbstractAim/introductionFor diabetic patients undergoing hemodialysis, vitreous hemorrhage seems to be a hemodialysis ‐induced hemorrhagic complication because of the effect of systemic anticoagulation. But it is unclear whether hemodialysis is associated with vitreous hemorrhage in diabetic patients. We therefore conducted this cohort study to clarify the relationship between hemodialysis and vitreous hemorrhage in diabetic patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR).Materials and MethodsThis was a single ‐center, retrospective, cohort study. We compared the incidence of vitreous hemorrhage in non‐vitrect...

Authors: Barcelos STA, Dall'Oglio VM, de Araújo A, Cerski CTS, Álvares-da-Silva MR Abstract Hepatic sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (HSOS) is a hepatic vascular disease histologically characterized by edema, necrosis, detachment of endothelial cells in small sinusoidal hepatic and interlobular veins and intrahepatic congestion, which leads to portal hypertension and liver dysfunction. In the Western world, most HSOS cases are associated with myeloablative pretreatment in a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation setting. Here we report a case of a 54 years old female patient, otherwise healthy, with n...
