Risk factors for the mortality of hemodialysis patients with COVID-19: A multicenter study from the overall hemodialysis population in Wuhan
Semin Dial. 2021 Jun 16. doi: 10.1111/sdi.12995. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients are highly threatened in the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, but evidence of risk factors for mortality in this population is still lacking.METHODS: We followed outcomes of the overall MHD population of Wuhan, including 7154 MHD patients from 65 hemodialysis centers, from January 1 to May 4, 2020. Among them, 130 were diagnosed with COVID-19. The demographic and clinical data of them were collected and compared between survivors and nonsurvivors.RESULTS: Compared to the co...

Results of drug-eluting stent in significant restenosis of the hemodialysis access: An initial study
This study aimed to report the 12-month results of drug-eluting stent (DES) for the treatment of significant restenosis of the hemodialysis access.MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 14 patients (seven men and seven women; median age 70 years; range of 50-83 years) with significant restenosis of hemodialysis accesses were enrolled from January 2017 to December 2018. A total of 10 arteriovenous graft (AVG) and four arteriovenous fistulae were treated with DES. Study outcomes included primary patency of the target lesion and circuit.RESULTS: Venous anastomosis of the AVG was the most common target lesion for DES insertion (nin...

Roxadustat on anti-erythropoietin antibody-related pure red cell aplasia in the patient with end-stage renal disease
Semin Dial. 2021 Jun 15. doi: 10.1111/sdi.12991. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAnti-erythropoietin antibody-related pure red cell aplasia (anti-EPO PRCA) is a severe complication in patients who receive erythropoiesis-stimulating agents for nephrogenic anemia. The standard therapy is withdrawl of EPO and immunosuppression. Here, we present successful treatment of anti-EPO PRCA with roxadustat, a hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase inhibitor. A 39-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease received recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) subcutaneously. Unfortunately, she developed anti-EPO PRCA and her hemoglobin...

Extracorporeal CO < sub > 2 < /sub > removal and renal replacement therapy in acute severe respiratory failure in COVID-19 pneumonia: Case report
We report a first case of prolonged ECCO2 R support in 38 year male with severe COVID-19 pneumonia refractory to conventional support. He was admitted tachypneic and oxygen saturation 71% without supplementary oxygen. The patient's clinical condition worsens with severe respiratory failure, increasing the oxygen requirement and initiating MV in the prone position. After 21 days of protective MV, PaCO2 rise to 96.8 mmHg, making it necessary to connect to an ECCO2 R system coupled continuous veno-venous hemodialysis (CVVHD). However, due to the lack of availability of equipment in the context of the pandemic, a pediatric gas...

Extracorporeal CO < sub > 2 < /sub > removal and renal replacement therapy in acute severe respiratory failure in COVID-19 pneumonia: Case report
We report a first case of prolonged ECCO2 R support in 38 year male with severe COVID-19 pneumonia refractory to conventional support. He was admitted tachypneic and oxygen saturation 71% without supplementary oxygen.

Pain on arteriovenous fistula cannulation: A narrative review
Semin Dial. 2021 May 7. doi: 10.1111/sdi.12979. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPain on arteriovenous fistula (AVF) cannulation is a rather persistent problem in the daily hemodialysis practice. Its prevalence varies from 12% to even 80% depending on the definition and the pain-assessment tools and it affects the quality of life of hemodialysis patients. It is associated with fear of the cannulation process, the decision of hemodialysis from an AVF and sometimes the hemodialysis itself. In this narrative review, we tried to tackle the extent of the problem and to present the available published solutions. The literature sugg...

CRRT in developing world
Semin Dial. 2021 May 6. doi: 10.1111/sdi.12975. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTContinuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) has become a mainstay therapy in the intensive care unit (ICU) and its utilization continues to increase in developed countries. The wide variations of CRRT practice, however, are evident in developing countries while clinicians in these resource-limited countries encounter various barriers such as a limited number of nephrologists and trained staff, a gap of knowledge, machine unavailability, cultural and socioeconomic aspects, high-cost therapy without reimbursement, and administrative as well as gove...

Drug dosing considerations in continuous renal replacement therapy
Semin Dial. 2021 May 3. doi: 10.1111/sdi.12972. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAcute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in critically ill patients, which is associated with increased in-hospital mortality. Delivering effective antibiotics to treat patients with sepsis receiving continuous renal replacement therapy (RRT) is complicated by variability in pharmacokinetics, dialysis delivery, lack of primary literature, and therapeutic drug monitoring. Pharmacokinetic alterations include changes in absorption, distribution, protein binding (PB), metabolism, and renal elimination. Drug absorption may be significantly c...

Immunodiagnosis and molecular validation of Toxoplasma gondii-recombinant dense granular (GRA) 5 protein for the detection of toxoplasmosis in hemodialysis patients
Semin Dial. 2021 May 3. doi: 10.1111/sdi.12981. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTToxoplasmosis causes serious complications in immunocompromised and pregnant women. Serological tests for the detection of toxoplasmosis are often designed from parasitic tachyzoites antigens. The process of producing these antigens is very difficult. The purpose of this study was evaluation of T. gondii-rGRA5 for the immunodiagnosis and molecular detection of Toxoplasma infection using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and LAMP methods in hemodialysis patients. The GRA5 gene was successfully expressed and purified by affinity chromatogra...

Vascular access, membranes and circuit for CRRT
Semin Dial. 2021 May 3. doi: 10.1111/sdi.12977. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe advances in the technology for providing continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) have led to an increase in its utilization throughout the world. However, circuit life continues to be a major problem. It leads not only to decreased delivery of dialysis but also causes blood loss, waste of disposables, alters dose delivery of medications and nutrition, and increases nurse workload, all of which increases healthcare cost. Premature circuit failure can be caused by numerous factors that can be difficult to dissect out. The first component is...

Hemodialysis catheter malpositioned into the mediastinum: Lessons from two cases
Semin Dial. 2021 May 3. doi: 10.1111/sdi.12969. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTHemodialysis catheter (HDC) using a tunneled cuffed catheter (TCC) is a viable option for acute hemodialysis. Vessel injury during catheter insertion can lead to malpositioning of the HDC into the mediastinum. We herewith present two malpositioned HDCs in various clinical settings. For the first case, the HDC was inserted without fluoroscopic guidance, but in the second case, the HDC was inserted under fluoroscopic guidance. Our first case involved HDC insertion via the right internal jugular vein (IJV), and the second case involved HDC insertion...
