Percutaneous perfusion monitoring for the detection of hemodialysis induced cardiovascular injury
Discussion: Percutaneous perfusion monitoring, using pulse wave analysis, appears to be useful in identifying circulatory stress during HD and predicting the development of HD‐induced myocardial stunning with a lead time long enough to consider timely intervention.

Effect of high amylose resistant starch (HAM ‐RS2) supplementation on biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress in hemodialysis patients: a randomized clinical trial
Abstract Introduction: Systemic inflammation and oxidative stress play a central role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease and numerous other complications of CKD. Recent studies demonstrated that consumption of a diet enriched with amylose (HAM‐RS2), attenuates oxidative stress and inflammation, and improves intestinal microbiome in CKD rats. The present study was designed to explore the effect of dietary amylose supplementation in hemodialysis patients. Methods: Forty‐six stable hemodialysis patients were randomized to receive biscuits containing 20 g/day during the first four weeks and 25 g/day in the next ...

Basilic vein transposition for unsuitable upper arm hemodialysis needle access segment may attenuate concurrent hand ischemia
Abstract Introduction: Some hemodialysis patients with a brachial arteriovenous fistula (AVF) have an unsuitable upper arm needle access segment (NAS) necessitating basilic vein transposition (BVT). It was frequently observed that a portion of these patients spontaneously experienced a warmer and less painful dialysis hand after BVT. Aim of this study was to determine whether BVT for an inadequate NAS attenuated hemodialysis access‐induced distal ischemia in patients with a brachial AVF.Methods: Patients with a brachial AVF and an unsuitable NAS also reporting hand ischemia and scheduled to undergo BVT between 2005 and 2...

Why does the choice of dialysate sodium concentration remain controversial?
Abstract The choice of the ideal dialysate sodium concentration remains controversial. Most dialysis centers have a standard dialysate concentration. In theory, choosing a dialysate sodium concentration lower than serum sodium should result in an additional loss of sodium by diffusion with a reduction in the prevalence of hypertension and interdialytic weight gains (IDWGs) on one hand, but with potential increased risk of intradialytic hypotension and cramps on the other hand, and the opposite effects may accompany the choice of dialysate sodium concentrations greater than serum concentration. Although most studies have re...

Radio ‐cephalic arteriovenous fistula recovered with drainage through the brachial vein
Abstract Dysfunction of arteriovenous access for hemodialysis is a challenge for the vascular surgeon. Some patients have complex vascular access with problems that are difficult to solve. Careful analysis of the vascular network with ultrasound and dissection of the veins during surgery can help to identify the best option for each access. We introduce and discuss the case of creation of a radio‐cephalic fistula with outflow into the brachial vein in 64‐year‐old hemodialysis male patient. This technique enables extending fistula patency, arterializing the brachial vein, and improves cost efficiency. (Source: Hemodialysis International)

Targeted surgical parathyroidectomy in end ‐stage renal disease patients and long‐term metabolic control: A single‐center experience in the current era
Abstract Background: The long‐term results of surgical parathyroidectomy (PTX) in end‐stage renal disease (ESRD) patients are less well known in the modern era of newer activated vitamin‐D analogs, calcimimetics and intraoperative monitoring of parathyroid hormone (PTH).Methods: We performed a retrospective chart review of all ESRD patients undergoing PTX at the University of Mississippi Medical Center between January 2005 and August 2011, with follow‐up data as available up to 4 years. All PTXs were performed with intraoperative second‐generation PTH monitoring and targeted gland size reduction.Results: The coho...

Free dialysis in Nepal: Logistical challenges explored
Abstract Nepal's Ministry of Health began offering free lifetime hemodialysis (HD) in 2016. There has been a large growth in renal replacement therapy (RRT) services offered in Nepal since 2010, when the last known data on the subject was published. In 2016, 42 HD centers existed (223% increase since 2010) serving 1975 end stage renal disease patients (303% increase since 2010); 36 nephrologists were registered (200% increase since 2010), 12 were trained in transplantation, and 790 transplants had been performed to date. We estimate the incidence of end stage renal disease to be 2900 patients (100 per million population). ...

The effect of small dose of topiroxostat on serum uric acid in patients receiving hemodialysis
Abstract Introduction: Topiroxostat, a recently developed xanthine oxidase inhibitor, is expected to have fewer adverse effects than allopurinol because it has different mechanism of action from alloprinol. However, its dosage, usage and safety have not been established in patients with impaired renal function or those undergoing dialysis at the development since no studies was conducted in these patients. Methods: Cross over clinical trial using 3 months of allopurinol and topiroxostat on 27 maintain Japanese HD patients were carried out. The effects on oxidative stress status of both drugs were also evaluated by measurin...

Effect of ultrafiltration on placental ‐fetal blood flow in pregnancy of woman undergoing chronic hemodialysis
Abstract Introduction: Patient who was undergoing hemodialysis (HD) thrice weekly usually gain 1 to 4 kg of weight in interdialytic period, mainly due to fluid accumulation by ingestion of water. Ultrafiltration (UF) during HD will be need to remove fluid excess to avoid severe medical complications secondary to fluid overload. However, in pregnant woman UF can increase the episodes of intradialytic hypotension which may lead to placental ischemic injury and predispose to fetal distress. There is little information about safe fluid amount withdrawn by UF during pregnancy. Methods: We prospectively study by obstetric Dopple...

Management of pain in end ‐stage renal disease patients: Short review
Abstract Pain management in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients is a complex and challenging task to accomplish, and effective pain and symptom control improves quality of life. Pain is prevalent in more than 50% of hemodialysis patients and up to 75% of these patients are treated ineffectively due to its poor recognition by providers. A good history for PQRST factors and intensity assessment using visual analog scale are the initial steps in the management of pain followed by involvement of palliative care, patient and family counseling, discussion of treatment options, and correction of reversible causes. First line ...

Relative risk of home hemodialysis attrition in patients using a telehealth platform
Abstract Introduction: Home hemodialysis (HHD) facilitates increased treatment frequency, which may improve patient outcomes. However, attrition due to technique failure limits the clinical effectiveness of the modality. Nx2me Connected Health is a telehealth platform that enables ongoing assessment of HHD patients using NxStage equipment, and that may reduce patient burden. We aimed to assess whether use of Nx2me was associated with risk of HHD attrition. Methods: We compared risks of all‐cause attrition, dialysis cessation (i.e., death or transplant), and technique failure in Nx2me users and matched control patients, u...
