Central blood pressure in morbid obesity and after bariatric surgery.
Authors: Outón S, Galceran I, Pascual J, Oliveras A Abstract Various mechanisms are related to arterial hypertension in obesity. Central blood pressure (BP) seems to correlate more than peripheral BP with future cardiovascular risk. Bariatric surgery is an effective method to reduce BP along with weight loss in patients with morbid obesity. The study of the relationship between weight modification after bariatric surgery and ambulatory BP measurement, not only peripheral BP, but also central BP, could provide information regarding the mechanisms of organic damage associated with elevated BP in obesity. In th...

Platelet-to-lymphocyte and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratios as markers of erythropoietin resistance in chronic haemodialysis patients: a multicentre cross-sectional study.
Authors: Valga F, Monzón T, Henriquez F, Santana-Del-Pino A, Antón-Pérez G Abstract INTRODUCTION: The platelet-to-lymphocyte (PLR) and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte (NLR) ratios are emerging markers of inflammation. Erythropoietin resistance is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease and is influenced by inflammation, among other factors. Therefore, it would be reasonable to expect a relationship between these markers and erythropoietin resistance. METHODS: Multicentre cross-sectional study. The records of the haemodialysis sessions of 534 patien...

When to perform renal biopsy in patients with type2 diabetes mellitus? Predictive model of non-diabetic renal disease.
CONCLUSIONS: NDRD is common in DM patients (39%), being primary glomerulonephritis the most frequent ethology.

Authors: Ariceta G, Buj MJ, Furlano M, Martínez V, Matamala A, Morales M, Robles NR, Sans L, Villacampa F, Torra R Abstract Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a rare, hereditary, multisystemic disease with a broad phenotypic spectrum. Its management requires the collaboration of multiple specialists. Just as in the paediatric age, the paediatric neurologist takes on special importance; in adulthood, renal involvement is the cause of the greatest morbidity and mortality. There are several recommendations on the general management of patients with TSC but none that focuses on renal involvement. These recommen...
