BACKGROUND: Although recent studies suggest an association between nephrolithiasis and clinical cardiovascular events, this association has been underexplored. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: 62,091 asymptomatic adults without known coronary heart disease who underwent a screening health examination that included cardiac tomography. PREDICTOR: Nephrolithiasis. OUTCOME: Coronary artery calcification (CAC)...

BACKGROUND: The risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) is elevated with albuminuria or a low estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). However, the VTE risk due to the combined effects of eGFR and albuminuria are unknown. STUDY DESIGN: Population-based cohort study. SETTINGS & PARTICIPANTS: 694,956 adults in Ontario, Canada, from 2002 to 2012. FACTORS: eGFR and albumin-creatinine ratio (ACR). OUTCOME: VTE...

Apremilast is a recently developed phosphodiesterase 4-inhibitory medication approved for use to treat psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. We report a case of Fanconi syndrome and proximal renal tubular acidosis that was associated with this medication. Our patient was started on treatment with apremilast 2 weeks before his admission. On arrival, laboratory test results were significant for hypokalemia, hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis, low uric acid concentration, positive urine anion gap, and proteinuria, which resolved on discontinuation of the drug...

BACKGROUND: Involving patients in dialysis decision making is crucial, yet little is known about patient-reported experiences and patient-reported outcomes of dialysis. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective longitudinal cohort study of older patients receiving long-term dialysis. Predictors of worse health status were assessed using modified Poisson regression analysis. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: 150 New Zealanders 65 years or older with end-stage kidney disease dialyzing at 1 of 3 nephrology centers...

BACKGROUND: The development of complement inhibitors has greatly improved the outcome of patients with atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS), making kidney transplantation a more feasible option. Although prophylactic eculizumab therapy may prevent recurrent disease after transplantation, its necessity for all transplant recipients is debated. STUDY DESIGN: A case series. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Patients with aHUS who underwent living donor kidney transplantation after 2011 at 2 university centers, prospectively followed up with a protocol of eculizumab therapy limited to only recipients with documented posttransplantation recurrent thrombotic microangiopathy...

Kidney disease in the setting of a hematologic malignancy is common, with the frequency and type of kidney disease varying depending on the specific malignancy. Various glomerular diseases and tumor infiltration of the kidneys have been reported in patients with lymphoproliferative disorders. Descriptions of kidney involvement in myeloproliferative disorders have been much rarer. We report a case of membranous nephropathy accompanied by kidney injury in a patient with primary myelofibrosis with additional features considered related to the patient's myeloproliferative disorder...

Marijuana is the most commonly used recreational drug in the United States, and legal recreational and medicinal use has gained public acceptance during the last decade. Twenty-nine US states have established medical marijuana programs, 8 of which have also legalized recreational marijuana, and Canada is expected to legalize recreational marijuana in 2018. Advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are chronic conditions with significant associated morbidity and mortality. Patients experience substantial symptom burden that is frequently undertreated due to adverse medication side effects...

BACKGROUND: Clinical practice guidelines recommend referral to nephrology when estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) decreases to <30mL/min/1.73m(2); however, evidence for benefits of nephrology care are mixed. STUDY DESIGN: Observational cohort using landmark analysis. SETTINGS & PARTICIPANTS: A national cohort of veterans with advanced chronic kidney disease, defined as an outpatient eGFR≤30mL/min/1.73m(2) for January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010, and a prior eGFR<60mL/min/1...

BACKGROUND: Vascular calcification is common among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and it is associated with all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality. Deoxycholic acid, a metabolite of circulating bile acids, is elevated in CKD and induces vascular mineralization and osteogenic differentiation in animal models. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort analysis of clinical trial participants. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: 112 patients with moderate to severe CKD (estimated glomerular filtration rate, 20-45mL/min/1...

BACKGROUND: Elevated uric acid concentration is associated with higher rates of cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality in the general population. It is not known whether hyperuricemia increases the risk for CV death or transplant failure in kidney transplant recipients. STUDY DESIGN: Post hoc cohort analysis of the FAVORIT Study, a randomized controlled trial that examined the effect of homocysteine-lowering vitamins on CV disease in kidney transplantation...

BACKGROUND: Quinine can cause diverse and severe immune-mediated adverse reactions, including thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA). Our objective was to describe the presenting features and long-term outcomes of patients with quinine-induced TMA. STUDY DESIGN: A case series of 19 patients with quinine-induced TMA treated with plasma exchange. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Patients with quinine-induced TMA initially suspected of having thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) were identified among patients enrolled in the Oklahoma TTP-Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome Registry...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is often asymptomatic at first diagnosis, and awareness of CKD is low in the general population. Thus, individuals who are unexpectedly identified as having CKD may struggle to adjust to living with this diagnosis. This study aims to synthesize qualitative research exploring patients' views and experiences of a CKD diagnosis and how they adjust to it. STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review and meta-ethnography. SETTING & POPULATION: Adult patients with CKD stages 1 to 5...

BACKGROUND: The burden of diabetes-related chronic kidney disease (CKD) on individuals and society is increasing, shifting attention toward improving the quality of care for patients with CKD and diabetes. We assessed the quality of CKD care and its association with long-term dialysis, acute kidney injury (AKI), and death. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study (2004-2011). SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Adults in Taiwan with incident CKD enrolled in the Longitudinal Cohort of Diabetes Patients...

Matthew B Lanktree, Sébastien Thériault, Michael Walsh, Guillaume Paré
BACKGROUND: High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and triglyceride concentrations are heritable risk factors for vascular disease, but their role in the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is unclear. STUDY DESIGN: 2-sample Mendelian randomization analysis of data derived from the largest published lipid and CKD studies. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Effect of independent genetic variants significantly associated with lipid concentrations was obtained from the Global Lipids Genetics Consortium (n=188,577), and the effect of these same variants on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), CKD (defined as eGFR<60mL/min/1...

BACKGROUND: Reduced lung function is associated with clinical outcomes such as cardiovascular disease. However, little is known about its association with incident end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: 14,946 participants aged 45 to 64 years at baseline (1987-1989) in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study (45.0% men and 25.2% black), with follow-up through 2012...
