Evidence suggests extended-hours haemodialysis (HD) may improve cardiovascular, medical and quality-of-life outcomes. In-centre nocturnal haemodialysis (INHD) is an established but underutilized method of providing extended-hours treatment. This 6-month, non-randomized controlled trial (ISRCTN16672784) recruited 13 INHD patients and 12 control patients on conventional HD. The effects of treatment on left ventricular (LV) structure, function and myocardial fibrosis were assessed using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and native T1 mapping...

AIM: (1) To describe the whole blood content of thiamine diphosphate (TDP), a biologically active form of vitamin B1 in end-stage kidney disease patients treated with hemodialysis (HD); (2) to establish the impact of a single HD procedure on TDP blood concentrations; and (3) to describe potential explanatory variables influencing TDP dialysis related losses, including dialysis prescription, vitamin B1 dietary intake and supplementation. METHODS: Single-center, cross-sectional study in 50 clinically stable maintenance HD patients...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of early continuous veno-venous hemofiltration (CVVH) in decreasing the intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) and serum interleukin-8 (IL-8) level in severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) patients with abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). METHODS: Twenty-five ACS patients of SAP were enrolled in a prospective study conducted according to the standard management protocol. They were treated in the intensive care unit (ICU) of Affiliated Yidu Central Hospital of Weifang Medical College and underwent CVVH...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to evaluate mechanical and infectious complications associated with urgent-start peritoneal dialysis (PD) and patients and technique survival in the first 180 days. METHODS: It was a prospective study that evaluated chronic patients who started unplanned PD using high-volume PD (HVPD) right after (<72 h) PD catheter placement. After hospital discharge, patients were treated with intermittent PD on alternate days in a dialysis unit until family training was provided...

AIM: To examine the effects of vitamin E-coated dialyzer on oxidative stress in vitro. METHODS: A dialyzer with a synthetic polymer membrane (APS-11SA) and vitamin E-coated dialyzer (VPS-11SA) were connected to a blood tubing line, and U937 cells were circulated in the device. The circulating fluid was collected at 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, and 50 cycles, which are estimated numbers of passes through the dialyzer. Intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, malondialdehyde (MDA), and Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase (SOD) were quantified...

With the adoption of the new definition and classification of cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) and its relevant subtypes, much attention has been placed on elucidating the mechanisms of heart and kidney interactions. Of great interest are the pathophysiological pathways by which acute heart failure may result in acute kidney injury (AKI; type 1), chronic heart failure accelerating the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD; type 2), AKI provoking cardiac events (type 3), and CKD increasing the risk and severity of cardiovascular disease (type 4)...

BACKGROUND: High cutoff hemofilters might support the restoration of immune homeostasis in systemic inflammation by depleting inflammatory mediators from the circulation. METHODS: Interleukin (IL)-6, IL-8, IL-10, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha depletion was assessed in 30 sepsis patients with acute renal failure using continuous veno-venous hemodialysis with high cutoff versus standard filters (CVVHD-HCO vs. CVVHD-STD) over 48 h. RESULTS: The transfer of IL-6 and IL-8 was significantly higher for CVVHD-HCO, as shown by increased IL-6 and IL-8 effluent concentrations...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The number of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients on hemodialysis (HD) have increased, and their prognostic factors are still poorly clarified. The study aimed to identify factors that can influence the survival of HIV-infected patients on HD. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of 44 HIV-infected patients on HD. RESULTS: A total of 17 patients (39%) died. Median survival on HD was 30.8 months and the survival rate at 1 and 5 years was 82...

BACKGROUND: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) represents a situation in which persistently elevated levels of cardiac troponins I (cTnI) are frequently found in the absence of clinically evident cardiac disease. Moreover, the effect of hemodialysis (HD) on cTnI levels is not definitively elucidated. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of HD on cTnI levels in ESRD patients. METHODS: We enrolled 30 asymptomatic ESRD patients on maintenance HD. All the patients were dialyzed thrice weekly...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To evaluate the long-term outcomes of Chinese patients with cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (CSA-AKI). METHODS: Patients who underwent cardiac surgery with a median 3-year follow-up were enrolled. The long-term survival rate and the incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) were recorded, and related risk factors were analyzed. RESULTS: Of all 1,363 patients, 457 (33.5%) developed CSA-AKI. The AKI patients had a lower 3-year survival rate (88...

We report the case of a 23-year-old woman with a 2-week history of swelling around the eyes and both legs, and generalized body swelling. She had a history of chronic constipation and poor diet but no fever, recent illnesses, or hematuria. Examination revealed bilateral pedal edema and mild ascites. Laboratory investigations showed low hemoglobin 79 g/L, low mean corpuscular volume 53 fL, thrombocytosis 973 × 109/L, and marked hypochromia and microcytosis, with low iron and ferritin. She had hypoalbuminemia and reduced serum protein (albumin 1...

We report the case of a 22-year-old woman with a 3-day history of watery stool, generalized abdominal pain, repeated vomiting, and decreased urine output following the consumption of fish gallbladder for self-treatment of acne. She was admitted and received empirical antiemetic, proton pump inhibitor, and intravenous saline treatment. Urine output reduced drastically with markedly elevated urea and creatinine, and she underwent urgent hemodialysis (HD). Based on thorough history taking and prompt biochemical investigations that showed extremely high urea and creatinine levels, we made a diagnosis of acute kidney injury (AKI) secondary to fish gallbladder poisoning...

Alternative medicine is gaining popularity worldwide. In Asia, particularly Southeast Asia, herbal medicine plays an important role in healthcare. A 34-year-old man from Yangon, Myanmar, was admitted to the medical ward of our hospital after ingesting a herbal remedy of boiled henna leaves (Dan Ywet in Burmese). He developed hemoglobinuria leading to acute kidney injury (AKI). The insult was severe, and he underwent 5 sessions of hemodialysis. His condition improved and within 7 weeks of injury, he made a full recovery...
