Relationship between quadriceps thickness and 60-second sit-to-stand test in patients with chronic kidney disease
This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between quadriceps muscle thickness and functional performance on the 60s sit-to-stand test (60s-STS), the six-minute walk test (6MWT), and handgrip strength in non-dialytic stage 4 and 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients.METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study that evaluated 40 CKD patients aged between 30-70 years. Participants were submitted to an assessment that included quadriceps muscle thickness evaluated by a portable ultrasound. Functional performance tests included the 60s-STS, distance walked in the 6MWT, and handgrip strength. Also, body composition evaluated ...

A case of colonoscopy-induced Wunderlich's syndrome in a hemodialysis patient: coincidence or association?
J Bras Nefrol. 2021 Sep 13:S0101-28002021005066301. doi: 10.1590/2175-8239-JBN-2021-0076. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTWunderlich syndrome, or spontaneous renal hemorrhage (SRH), is a rare condition encountered in patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis (HD) usually attributed to acquired cystic kidney disease (ACKD) among other causes. In the literature, colonoscopy is associated with splenic injuries, and renal hemorrhage has not been previously described. Management can range from conservative treatment to angiographic embolization or exploration and nephrectomy. Here we report an unusual case of a 54-year-old woman H...

Etiologic-sociodemographic assessment and comparison of dialysis modalities in pediatric Syrian migrants with chronic kidney disease
CONCLUSION: Progression to ESRD due to preventable reasons is very frequent among CKD patients. For more effective use of peritoneal dialysis in pediatric patients, the responsibility of states must be improved.PMID:34499077 | DOI:10.1590/2175-8239-JBN-2020-0260 (Source: Jornal Brasileiro de Nefrologia)

Glycosuria in primary glomerulopathies: prevalence and prognostic significance
CONCLUSION: Ten percent of our patients with PG have glycosuria. Glycosuria at the time of diagnosis was associated with more severe clinical presentation and worst renal outcome. The association with higher albuminuria suggests that tubular function has an impact on the severity and outcomes of PG.PMID:34424258 | DOI:10.1590/2175-8239-JBN-2021-0115 (Source: Jornal Brasileiro de Nefrologia)

Renal biopsy in children with IgA vasculitis
CONCLUSION: Cyclosporin-A and cyclophosphamide could be effective in steroid unresponsive HSN patients. Patients with scrotal involvement, decreased creatinine clearance, and hypertension should be closely monitored for sequelae of HSN.PMID:34328167 | DOI:10.1590/2175-8239-JBN-2021-0035 (Source: Jornal Brasileiro de Nefrologia)

Migratory pattern of the coronavirus disease 2019 and high fatality rates among kidney transplant recipients: report from the Brazilian Multicenter Cohort Study
CONCLUSION: The migratory pattern of the pandemic among KT recipients followed that of the general population and the outcomes were influenced by regional features. COVID-19 in KT recipients was associated with high utilization of health-care resources and higher fatality rates than those reported in the general population.PMID:34328168 | DOI:10.1590/2175-8239-JBN-2021-0063 (Source: Jornal Brasileiro de Nefrologia)
