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...

Kamonwan Tangvoraphonkchai, Andrew Davenport
Many patients with chronic kidney disease start undergoing thrice-weekly haemodialysis (HD), aiming for an HD sessional dialyzer urea clearance target, irrespective of whether they have residual renal function (RRF). While increasing sessional dialyzer urea clearance above a target of 1.2 has not been shown to improve patient survival, it has been shown that the preservation of RRF improves patient self-reported outcomes and survival. Observational studies have suggested that initiating twice-weekly HD schedules leads to greater preservation of RRF...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: During continuous renal replacement therapy, relevant losses of nutritional substrates, vitamins, and trace elements via the filter may occur. We investigated filter lifetime efficiency during a 72-h treatment period. METHODS: This prospective study included 40 patients undergoing citrate continuous veno-venous hemodialysis (CVVHD). The elimination rates were measured at 24, 48, and 72 h. To assess the influence of filter lifetime, we determined substrate loss every 24 h over a 72-h interval...

In selected cases, cuffed tunneled catheters via the iliac vein are implanted as a last resort access for hemodialysis. To monitor the correct position, sonography of the inferior vena cava (IVC) is sufficient in most cases. Position control using an X-ray of the abdomen is not routinely recommended when femoral catheters are implanted. In this report, we describe the case of a 59-year-old patient on chronic hemodialysis due to granulomatosis with polyangiitis and complex shunt history with multiple shunt occlusions and revisions...

BACKGROUND: Metformin-associated lactic acidosis (MALA) is a severe complication of drug administration with significant morbidity and mortality. So far no study in large population areas have examined the incidence, clinical profile and outcome of acute kidney injury (AKI)-MALA patients admitted in intensive care units (ICUs) and treated by renal replacement therapy (MALA-RRT). METHODS: Retrospective analysis over a 6-year period (2010-2015) in Piedmont and Aosta Valley regions (5,305,940 inhabitants, 141,174 diabetics treated with metformin) of all MALA-RRT cases...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Polyethylenimine-coated polyacrylonitrile (AN69ST) membrane is expected to improve the outcomes of critically ill patients treated by continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT). METHODS: Using a Japanese health insurance claim database, we identified adult patients receiving CRRT in intensive care units (ICUs) from April 2014 to October 2015. We used a multivariable logistic regression model to assess in-hospital mortality and Fine and Gray's proportional subhazards model to assess the ICU length of stay (ICU-LOS) accounting for the competing risks...

AIM: To demonstrate the capacity of polymyxin B-direct hemoperfusion (PMX-DHP) column Toraymyxin® 20R (PMX-20R) in removing endotoxin (LPS) from perfused blood, serum and plasma. METHODS: Endotoxin-spiked bovine serum or plasma was perfused in PMX-20R as per the recommended performance testing protocol. Samples were taken at various time points to assess the amount of endotoxin removed during a 4-h session. In another set of experiments, FITC-labelled LPS (FITC-LPS) was spiked into a pool of human whole blood, followed by perfusion with the spiked blood for 2 h in order to allow FITC-LPS to bind PMX-20R...

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...

With recent economic development in Southeast Asia, there have been improvements in medical services and healthcare provision. This has led to increased numbers of dialysis patients and increased numbers of dialysis facilities in the region. To assist economically developing countries in managing this change, support projects from Japan have been conducted in the region since around 2007. This article summarizes and discusses Japan's support activities, in which some of the authors were directly involved, in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar...

Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) occurs in patients with chronic renal failure complicated with renal bone disease and soft tissue/vascular calcification. In dialysis patients with severe SHPT, medical treatment may fail and parathyroidectomy (PTX) is indicated for definitive treatment. Severe hypocalcemia from hungry bone disease or postoperative hypoparathyroidism may occur during the postoperative period. We report here a case of severe SHPT in a hemodialysis patient treated with phosphate binders, calcitriol, and calcimimetics but who still required PTX...

We report a case of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition disease (CPDD) involving a patient on maintenance hemodialysis (MHD). The 32-year-old man presented in August 2016 with a complaint of left shoulder swelling of 8 months' duration with no trauma or fever. He was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome in 1998, which progressed to ESRD. He commenced MHD in 2012. Examination at our hospital revealed a soft nontender swelling of the left shoulder. Blood biochemistry showed elevated serum urate, phosphate, β2 microglobulin, and parathyroid hormone...

We report our activities training doctors on vascular access procedures at International University (IU) Hospital in Cambodia through a program facilitated by Ubiquitous Blood Purification International, a nonprofit organization that provides medical support to developing countries in the field of dialysis medicine. Six doctors from Japan have been involved in the education of medical personnel at IU, and we have collectively visited Cambodia about 15 times from 2010 to 2016. In these visits, we have performed many operations, including 42 for arteriovenous fistula, 1 arteriovenous graft, and 1 percutaneous transluminal angioplasty...
