Successful pregnancy after 10 consecutive failures in a liver transplant patient with advanced kidney failure
We report a successful, albeit complicated pregnancy with a live-born healthy baby at 28 weeks' gestation, after 10 pregnancy failures, in a 39-year-old patient with a history of liver transplantation and chronic kidney disease with hypertension and proteinuria. Multidisciplinary management (obstetrician, nephrologist and hepatology transplant specialist) allowed close monitoring, adaptation of immunosuppressive treatments and strict control of fetal growth. The onset of preeclampsia at 28 weeks' gestation led to a cesarean section, resulting in the birth of a healthy 830 g boy, with subsequent normal development. Followin...

Beta 2-microglobulin is an independent risk marker of acute kidney injury in adult patients with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis
CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of morbidity and mortality in patients with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis complicated by AKI remains high. Monitoring levels of β2-MG may provide clinicians with timely indicators of changes in renal function, facilitating adjustments to treatment strategies.PMID:38735000 | DOI:10.1007/s40620-024-01949-0 (Source: Journal of Nephrology)

Impact of pandemic mobility restrictions on kidney transplant patients' experience: lessons on quality of care
CONCLUSIONS: As healthcare services navigate evolving landscapes, our findings on the experience of kidney transplant recipients should enable hospital services to improve the quality of care they are able to provide to such patients during periods of restricted mobility, especially those associated with future disease emergencies, and considering that home confinement is often part of the natural course of post-operative care of these patients.PMID:38735001 | DOI:10.1007/s40620-024-01905-y (Source: Journal of Nephrology)
