A 62 year old woman was referred to our hospital because of acute renal and liver dysfunction. Prior to admission, she had already been started on hemodyalysis filtration(HDF). She showed facial edema and lumbar pain caused by an Ll compressive fracture. Laboratory examinations revealed hypercalcemia (13.2 mg/dL), hyperammonemia (297 microg/dL) and her serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen and total bilirubin levels were 3.9 mg/dL, 37.4 mg/dL and 3.2 mg/dL, respectively. Among the components of immunoglobulin, IgA was increased, while IgG and IgM were decreased...

We report a 54-year-old man (case 1) and a 79-year-old woman (case 2) who presented with encephalopathy of unknown cause. Both patients were on hemodyalysis and took an autumn mashroom, "sugihiratake" (Pleurocybella porrigens), two to three weeks prior to the onset of neurological alterations. The clinical syndrome of those patients was characterized by weakness and involuntary movements of the extremities (cases 1 and 2) or dysarthria (case 1) at the onset of the disease and subsequent intractable focal motor seizures, resulting in generalized status epilepticus or comatose state, six (case 1) or three (case 2) days after the disease onset...

A 79-year-old woman was undergoing chronic hemodyalysis. She received a continuous infusion of milrinone of 0.25 microg x kg(-1) x min(-1) for 77 hours, 0.2 microg x kg(-1) x min(-1) for 39 hours and 0.1 microg x kg(-1) x min(-1) for one hour due to heart failure after mitral valve repair. While receiving continuous infusion of milrinone, she was undergoing continuous venovenous hemofiltration. After infusion of milrinone for three days no arrhythmia was seen except atrial fibliration, but blood pressure remained low...

This paper presents a novel renal telemedicine system, Virtual Center for Renal Support (VCRS), focused on the end-stage renal disease (ESRD) population. The VCRS design modifies the telemedicine paradigm, currently centered on communication technologies and monitoring devices, by emphasizing the way that biosignals are used to extract on-line knowledge to be used by physicians to solve current needs of this population. We begin with an ESRD review, from which a summary of major limitations of current renal health assistance programs is obtained...

Since the discovery of the hepatitis C virus(HCV), it has become evident that this infectious agent is a primary cause of posttransfusion and sporadic non-A, non-B hepatitis. Populations at risk for HCV infection include health care workers, infants born to HCV-infected mothers, hemodyalysis patients, and intravenous drug abusers. Because there currently is no HCV vaccine or specific immunoglobulin against HCV, prevention of exposure remains the only possibility for reducing HCV transmission and prevalence...

To evaluate the role, if any, of alpha-1-ag in the pathogenesis of dislipidemia in hemodialysis patients, serum alpha-1-ag levels were measured in 31 patients during maintenance hemodialysis. The mean serum alpha-1-ag concentration was higher in the dialysis patients (117.58 +/- 36.65) than in controls (98.32 +/- 19.5) (p greater than 0.05), with an unexplained significant difference between males and females (p less than 0.01). Serum alpha-1-ag levels were above normal in 6 patients (19.3%) and below normal in no one...

Osteocalcin is a bone-specific protein whose concentration in blood is a direct reflection of bone turnover. In chronic renal failure, circulating osteocalcin is elevated. This elevation is due to decreased renal clearance and, in some patients, increased bone turnover secondary to renal osteodystrophy. In children receiving continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, mean serum osteocalcin concentrations are substantially lower than in similar patients on hemodyalysis (1). This difference may be due to clearance of the protein by the peritoneal membrane...

The authors studied the skin disorders in 50 hemodialyzed patients. Pruritus appears to be the main dermatological feature by the frequency of its occurrence and by its unpleasant and even intolerable effects. This sign is more frequent among long time dialyzed patients and seems to be due to 2 factors: high urea blood concentration and secondary hyperparathyroidism. Calcinosis cutis is less frequent than pruritus. It seems to have the same origin and can be considered in the more general picture of the metastatic calcinosis in patients with renal failure and secondary hyperparathyroidism...

The authors conducted an EEG study of 28 patients with chronic renal insufficiency, 20 of whom were on a programme hemodyalysis and 8 were studied at different periods following kidney transplantation. Background registrations detected mild and moderate changes of the bioelectric brain activity, mainly with disorders of alpha-rhythm. Only in 1/3 of the patients there were moderate slow forms of activity of paroxysmal signs. A worsening of the EEG indices after hemodialysis, seen in 11 of the 20 patients was expressed in abundant polymorphic slow activity or paroxysmal hilateral synchronous discharges of a large amplitude and was combined with an appearance of neurological disorders...
