Patient with a total artificial heart maintained on outpatient dialysis while listed for combined organ transplant, a single center experience
In this report, we identify a patient with a TAH and ESRD transitioned successfully to outpatient hemodialysis and maintained for more than 2 years, though he did not survive to transplant. It is hoped that this report will raise awareness of this possibility, and assist in the development of protocols for similar patients to be successfully transitioned to outpatient dialysis care.

Acute kidney injury in a postpartum woman with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria: A case report and literature review
Abstract Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria is a rare clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorder characterized by intravascular hemolysis, hemoglobinuria, and inflammatory thrombotic state. Intravascular hemolysis in paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) can lead to acute and chronic renal injury through hemoglobin‐mediated toxicity. A 32‐year‐old pregnant woman with myelodysplastic syndrome was admitted to our hospital with severe preeclampsia. Shortly after an urgent caesarean section, she became obtunded and showed signs of acute kidney injury (AKI) with anuria, severe intravascular hemolysis, and hypermagnesemi...

Use of the anion gap and intermittent hemodialysis following continuous hemodiafiltration in extremely high dose acute ‐on‐chronic lithium poisoning: A case report
Abstract A 35‐year‐old woman intentionally took 40,000 mg of lithium carbonate, and she was transferred to our hospital with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. She was diagnosed as having bipolar disorder 10 years ago and was receiving oral lithium therapy. Blood test results on arrival were remarkable for a negative anion gap of −2.1 and later, the serum lithium level turned out to be as high as 15.4 mEq/L. Intubation was required because of disrupted consciousness, and continuous hemodiafiltration (CHDF) was immediately started in the intensive care unit to obtain constant removal of lithium. After adding intermit...

Principles of treating enlarging pseudoaneurysm in a dialysis arteriovenous graft
Abstract The arteriovenous graft (AVG) is one of the major types of permanent vascular access used to provide hemodialysis. Complications encountered with AVG use include stenosis, infection, thrombosis, and pseudoaneurysm formation. Venous outflow stenosis along with frequent needle cannulation at the same site can lead to breakdown of the graft material, resulting in pseudoaneurysm formation. In the following case, we illustrate common management principles used to treat pseudoaneurysms. While stent‐grafts have been utilized for pseudoaneurysm repair, stent‐graft usage is not always optimal. Surgical management may b...

Adjustment of target weight based on absolute blood volume reduces the frequency of intradialytic morbid events
Abstract Introduction: Adequate volume management removing excess volume and at the same time avoiding intradialytic morbid events (IME) remains a core problem in current hemodialysis (HD) therapy. Recently, we developed a feasible method to determine absolute blood volume (Vs, in mL/kg) in patients on HD. The aim of this study was to investigate the suitability of Vs measurements for volume management.Methods: Following a 4 week baseline phase to quantify the frequency of IME, volume status was determined in a single specified HD session during which Vs was measured using dialysate dilution, volume overload (Vo, L) was me...

Pregnancy on short ‐daily home hemodialysis using low dialysate flow rate: A new hope for the end‐stage renal disease patients
Conclusion: Short‐daily hemodialysis using low dialysate flow rate during pregnancy seems to allow a good control of uremia and blood pressure without requiring a major increase of weekly dialysis duration. Therefore, it could become an alternative to other hemodialysis programs while allowing the patients to continue their treatment at home. However, other studies are necessary in order to define the position of this procedure during pregnancy. (Source: Hemodialysis International)

On ‐line hemodiafiltration at home
We report our experience with 2 patients with stage 5 CKD who started home hemodialysis with OL‐HDF in November 2016. After a training period at the hospital, they started home hemodialysis with OL‐HDF after learning how to manage dialysis monitors and how to administer water treatment. We used the “5008‐home” (FMC©) monitor, and the Acqua C© (Fresenius Medical Care) for water treatment. Water conductivity was always checked before and during dialysis sessions and was always 2.5 to 3 mS/cm. Water cultures always fulfilled the criteria for ultrapurity. As far as we know, this is the first report ...

An unusual case of an irretrievable hemodialysis catheter in a patient with end stage renal disease
Abstract Hemodialysis catheters are associated with higher risks of complications compared to arteriovenous fistulas and grafts. Some common complications of dialysis catheters include infection, thrombus formation, central venous stenosis, and mechanical dysfunction. Rarely, catheters can become firmly adhered to a vessel wall. Catheter adhesion is a serious complication that can impact the delivery of safe and effective dialysis to affected patients. Adherent catheters commonly present insidiously with no overt diagnostic signs and symptoms or antecedent catheter malfunction. Prognosis is variable, but can be potentially...

Comparison of stroke volume measurements during hemodialysis using bioimpedance cardiography and echocardiography
Abstract Background: Fluid management remains a major challenge of hemodialysis (HD) care, with serious implications for morbidity and mortality. Intradialytic fluid management is typically guided by blood pressure, an indirect resultant of hemodynamics status. Direct measurements of hemodynamic parameters may improve cardiovascular outcomes by providing rational bases for intervention. We compare stroke volume (SV) measurements using a noninvasive, regional biompedance cardiography device (NiCaS) with Doppler echocardiography (Echo) in HD setting. Methods: Stroke volumes were simultaneously measured using the devices in 1...

Platelet activation and clotting cascade activation by dialyzers designed for high volume online hemodiafiltration
Abstract Introduction: Hemodialysis patients are pro‐thrombotic. Higher volume online postdilutional hemodiafiltration (OL‐HDF), with increasing hematocrit increases the risk of clotting in the extracorporeal circuit (ECC). We wished to determine whether OL‐HDF increased platelet activation and ECC clotting. Methods: Coagulation parameters, platelet, white cell, and endothelial activation markers were measured at the start and end of dialysis sessions in 10 patients and also pre‐ and post‐dialyzer after 15 minutes using two different dialyzers designed for high volume OL‐HDF; cellulose triacetate (TAGP) and pol...
