INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of continuous veno-venous hemodialysis (CVVHD) using high cutoff (HCO) hemofilters on the removal of procalcitonin (PCT), and other inflammatory markers in the treatment of patients during septic shock with acute kidney injury (AKI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-six patients with septic shock and AKI were included in the study. Before and after the 24-h HCO-CVVHD, PCT, native C-reactive protein (CRP) and cytokines (interleukin-1β, interleukin-6, interleukin-12, interleukin-17, tumor necrosis factor-α) in serum and effluent were assessed...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in chronic kidney disease (CKD). One of the most important pathophysiological mechanisms for CVD in patients with CKD is the widespread and possibly accelerated formation of atherosclerotic plaques due to hyperlipidemia, uremic toxins, inflammation, oxidative stress, and endothelial dysfunction. Recent studies showed that the level of oxidized low-density lipoprotein cholesterol increases, and that high--density lipoprotein cholesterol dysfunction occurs as kidney function declines and inflammation becomes more prevalent...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and Marburg virus (MARV) are among the World Health Organization's top 8 emerging pathogens. Both zoonoses share nonspecific early symptoms, a high lethality rate, and a reduced number of specific treatment options. Therefore, we evaluated extracorporeal virus and glycoprotein (GP) elimination by lectin affinity plasmapheresis (LAP). METHODS: For both MERS-CoV (pseudovirus) as well as MARV (GPs), 4 LAP devices (Mini Hemopurifiers, Aethlon Medical, San Diego, CA, USA) and 4 negative controls were tested...

BACKGROUND: Remote monitoring (RM) supports a healthcare model that enhances patients' self-management. We evaluated the utility of RM in patients undergoing automated peritoneal dialysis (APD). METHODS: We observed 37 -RM-APD patients, 16 incidents, and 21 prevalents switched from traditional APD (T-APD). We observed the number of changes for APD prescription, the frequency of visits, and PD adequacy parameters during 1 year of RM utilization in APD. RESULTS: The APD prescriptions were modified more frequently in RM-APD vs...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The objective of this study is to evaluate the relation between sclerostin, arterial stiffness, and cardiovascular events (CVE) in hemodialysis patients (HD). METHODS: Sclerostin level and carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV) in 97 HD patients and sclerostin level in 40 controls were measured. RESULTS: Sclerostin level was significantly higher in patients than in controls. Sclerostin associated positively with age, male gender, cardiovascular disease, statin use, BMI, and PWV while negatively with alkaline phosphatase, parathormone (PTH), Kt/V, cinacalcet and vitamin D use in univariable correlation analyses...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Peritoneal protein loss (PPL) is associated with cardiovascular disease and mortality in peritoneal dialysis (PD). Controversial results have been published about the effect of paricalcitol in PPL among PD patients. This study intends to analyze the relationship between paricalcitol and PPL in PD. METHODS: In a retrospective study, prevalent PD patients were divided into 2 groups: "with paricalcitol" and "without paricalcitol"...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: We present a case of a male patient with severe recurrence of focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) after transplant. METHODS: Before the transplant he was treated with plasma exchange. Massive proteinuria was detected post-transplantation and plasma exchanges were performed without response. We administered 5 doses of Rituximab (375 mg/m2) and partial remission was achieved. Proteinuria relapse occurred 1 year post-transplant, so Immunoadsorption (IA) was started instead of plasma exchange with reduction of proteinuria...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Polymyxin-B (PMX) treatment has been reported to decrease mortality in patients with septic shock and acute kidney injury (AKI). In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether extended sessions of PMX (Ext-PMX) immobilized fiber column hemoperfusion ameliorate clinical outcomes in patients complicated with septic shock and AKI without surgical control. METHODS: Twenty-two patients with nonsurgical septic shock and AKI who received PMX were included...

BACKGROUND: The definition of significant stenosis (SS) remains controversial. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 1,040 consultations. SS was defined in the presence of clinical and echo-Doppler (DDU) criteria: Qa <500 mL/min or Qa decrease >25%; RI >0.7 in the feeding artery or absolute minimal luminal stenosis diameter <2.0 mm. Stenosis without any additional criteria were considered borderline stenosis (BS). RESULTS: Two hundred twenty-one arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) were included: 58...

This study is to investigate the associations between apolipoprotein E (ApoE) gene polymorphisms and cardiovascular complications of uremic patients on maintenance hemodialysis (MHD). Uremic patients on MHD (189, case group) and healthy people (165, control group) were recruited. Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) was used to test ApoE gene polymorphisms. Indicators of MHD and cardiovascular complications were observed. Compared with the control group, the case group had decreased frequency of ε3/3 genotype and ε3 allele and increased ε4/3 genotype and ε4 allele...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: We investigated factors associated with functional performance in hemodialysis (HD) patients as well as their relationships with mortality. METHODS: We enrolled 790 HD patients who were followed up from 2009 to 2013. Functional performance was evaluated by Karnofsky Performance Status Scale (KPSS) scores. We examined the associations of clinical variables and all-cause mortality with KPSS scores. RESULTS: Of the participants, 460 had high KPSS scores (range 90-100) and 330 had low KPSS scores (below 80)...

OBJECTIVE: This study aims to investigate the effects of hybrid blood purification treatment on secondary hyperparathyroidism for maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patients. METHODS: A total of 40 patients were randomly divided into 2 groups: HD combined with hemoperfusion (HD + HP) group (n = 20) and HD group (n = 20). Changes in intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) in these 2 groups were compared before and after treatment, and iPTH levels in the HD + HP group were monitored before and after treatment...

BACKGROUND: Isonatric hemodialysis aims at maintaining stable cellular hydration through a close control of natremia, considered a surrogate of tonicity. However, 2 methods are available to perform isonatric hemodialysis: one based on natremia derived from plasma conductivity (NaCond) and the other based on natremia measured at laboratory (NaLab). We compared the control of tonicity obtained by isonatric hemodialysis based on NaLab or NaCond. METHODS: Changes in tonicity NaLab and NaCond were recorded during 55 hemodialysis sessions...
