BACKGROUND: Kidney transplantation is the preferred treatment for end-stage renal disease (ESRD), while peritoneal dialysis affords certain benefits over hemodialysis. Distributions and determinants of first ESRD treatment modality have not been compared across glomerulonephritis (GN) subtypes. METHODS: We identified all adult (18-75 years) patients with ESRD attributed to any of six GN subtypes [focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), IgA nephropathy (IgAN), membranous nephropathy (MN), membranoproliferative GN (MPGN), lupus nephritis (LN) and vasculitis] who were first registered in the US Renal Data System (USRDS) between 1996 and 2011...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Outcomes-based research rarely focuses on patients with ESRD caused by GN. The hypotheses were that the GN subtype would clinically discriminate patient groups and independently associate with survival after ESRD therapy initiation. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS: Data were extracted from the US Renal Data System for adult patients with incident (1996-2011) ESRD attributed to six GN subtypes: FSGS, IgA nephropathy (IgAN), membranous nephropathy, membranoproliferative glomeruonephritis, lupus nephritis (LN), and vasculitis...

The kidneys, as an integral part of the body, are in close functional relationship with other organs. Dysfunction of the relationship with one organ will affect the kidney. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) leads in time to alteration of the relationship of the kidney with other organs, sometimes with severe consequences. Thus, cardiovascular involvement in CKD leads to increased severity of CKD, with an increase in mortality rate. At present, the relationship between the kidney and the lung has been less studied...

The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence, etiology and risk factors of treated end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the region of Tabuk, Saudi Arabia. We studied 460 renal replacement therapy patients through a review of medical records and patient interviews and obtained patient demographics, family history, risk factors for ESRD, environmental exposure to toxins, work conditions, social history and causes of death. The estimated prevalence of treated ESRD was 460 per million populations (PMP); 350 (76%) were treated by hemodialysis, 30 (7%) by peritoneal dialysis and 80 (17%) by kidney transplantation...

We present a 38-year-old female patient on peritoneal dialysis for 3 years due to mesangioproliferative glomerulonephritis since early adolescence and chronic failure of the right kidney transplants. In early 2006 she was treated with high-dose cortisone due to cryptogenic, organized pneumonia. During a routine echocardiographic examination performed because of occurrence of cerebral symptoms such as diminished visual and auditory acuity in the patient, we detected a mobile, left ventricular thrombus of unusual large size, along with serologically measured Lupus anticoagulant antibodies (LA)...

OBJECTIVES: Graft thrombosis is a major complication of transplantation. However, there are no recommendation on immediate postoperative thromboprophylaxis after kidney transplantation. We recorded clinical practices in France. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In 29 transplantation centres, four case studies were submitted to the medical kidney transplantation referent (compatible graft from cadaveric donor, without perioperative complication). N(o) 1: Man, 27-years-old, IgA glomerulonephritis, without history of hypercoagulability or cardiovascular risk factor...

End-stage renal disease (ESRD), due to its high morbidity and mortality as well as social and financial implications, is a major public health problem. Outcome depends not only on different modalities of treatment like hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, but also on existing co-morbidities, age, duration on dialysis, supportive therapies and infection control strategies. Thus, a detailed study becomes necessary to improve health care delivery, provide medical care and to establish a geographical reference...

Nephrological work in China started in early 60s, but it was not until the middle of the 1980s before it became an independent discipline and linked with the international nephrology community. Due to the huge population and enormous territory, nephrologists are facing a great mission and momentous challenges. Most nephrologists reside in the coastal region, which has a higher education background than most of the rest of the country. Among them, Beijing, Shanghai, Guanzhong and Nangjing are the major centers for training graduate students to conduct basic and clinical research...

A Japanese girl aged 13 years with myeloperoxidase anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies(MPO-ANCA)-associated glomerulonephritis(GN) progressed to end-stage renal failure after 7 years' clinical observation. She had been suffering from recurrent disease flare associated with serum MPO-ANCA elevation(i.e. 153 EU/ml, 208 EU/ml and 358 EU/ml, maximum at each of the episodes, normal < 10 EU/ml). Each flare was treated successfully with prednisolone combined with cyclophosphamide and azathioprine. However, her renal function gradually deteriorated, and peritoneal dialysis(PD) was initiated 7 years after the onset of the disease...

BACKGROUND: End-stage renal disease is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). In 1975, the US Renal Transplant Registry reported the first lupus patients, who received a renal transplant. This study reported 60% and 55% patient/graft survival respectively at a mean time of two years; these results were similar to those of non-lupus transplanted patients in this same post-transplant lapse time. Renal transplantation is a world wide accepted therapeutic option in the treatment of SLE patients...

BACKGROUND: The risk of progressing to end-stage renal disease in children with lupus glomerulonephritis is 18% to 50%. Published reports of transplantation secondary to end-stage renal failure in adult patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) demonstrate equivalent patient and graft survival. The purpose of this analysis is to compare patient and graft outcomes of pediatric SLE renal transplant recipients with an age-, race-, and gender-matched control group. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the North American Pediatric Renal Transplant Cooperative Study (NAPRTCS) database identified 100 renal transplants performed in 94 young SLE patients...

C1q nephropathy is an immune complex glomerulonephritis defined by the presence of mesangial immunoglobulins and complement deposits, most notably C1q, and the absence of clinical and laboratory evidence of systemic lupus erythematosus. Histology in C1q nephropathy is characterized by a slight to severe increase in mesangial cellularity and matrix, with or without segmental sclerosis. C1q nephropathy usually presents with nephrotic-range proteinuria in older children and young adults, and has a poor response to steroids...
