Introduction. The prevalence of obesity is increasing worldwide. Obesity can be determined by body mass index (BMI); however waist circumference (WC) is a better measure of central obesity. This study evaluates the outcome of laparoscopic nephrectomy on patients with an abnormal WC. Methods. A WC of >88 cm for women and >102 cm for men was defined as obese. Data collected included age, gender, American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) score, renal function, anaesthetic duration, surgery duration, blood loss, complications, and duration of hospital stay...

The aging kidney is a marked by a number of structural and functional changes, including an increased susceptibility to acute kidney injury (AKI). Previous studies from our laboratory have shown that aging male Fischer 344 rats (24 month) are more susceptible to apoptosis-mediated injury than young counterparts. In the current studies, we examined the initial injury and early recovery phases of mercuric chloride-induced AKI. Interestingly, the aging kidney had decreased serum creatinine compared to young controls 1 day following mercuric chloride injury, but by day 4, serum creatinine was significantly elevated, suggesting that the aging kidney did not recover from injury...

Background/Aims: Recent findings have demonstrated the occurrence of neutrophil transendothelial migration in the reverse direction (reverse TEM) and that endothelial junctional adhesion molecule C (JAM-C) is a negative regulator of reverse TEM. In this study, we tested the effects of a JAM-C blocking antibody on the resolution of kidney injuries and inflammation in a mouse model of cisplatin-induced acute kidney injury (AKI). Methods: Cisplatin was administered via intraperitoneal injection...

Complement alternative pathway (cAP) hyperactivation seems to be involved in ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV). We here describe a case of AAV with severe activation of cAP that developed acute renal failure. No mutation predisposing to cAP dysregulation was identified. We treated our patient with the standard immunosuppressive therapy, but disease progression was only reversed after the addition of eculizumab, a monoclonal antibody against C5; the patient eventually achieved an almost complete renal function recovery...

BACKGROUND: Castleman's disease (CD) is an uncommon, heterogeneous lympho-proliferative disorder leading to high circulating levels of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Renal involvement has been only described in a limited number of small studies. Herein, we report a rare case of renal thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) associated with CD and investigate the podocyte expression of VEGF in the renal biopsy prior to initiation of treatment. CASE PRESENTATION: An 18-year-old male presented with fever, diarrhea, diffuse lymphadenopathy, ascites and acute kidney injury...

BACKGROUND: Shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC)-associated hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) is a major cause of acute kidney injury (AKI), especially in children. Its long-term outcome with respect to endothelial damage remains largely elusive. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study in 26 children who had suffered from STEC-HUS in the past and achieved a complete recovery of renal function (eGFR >90 ml/min/1.73 m(2)). Skin microcirculation after local heating was assessed by laser Doppler fluximetry, carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV), carotid intima media thickness (cIMT), 24-h ambulatory blood pressure, and angiopoietin (Ang) 1 and 2 serum levels after a median follow-up period of 6...

Metformin pharmacokinetics are highly dependent upon organic cationic transporters. There is evidence of a change in its renal clearance in hyperlipidemic obese patients, and no information on its metabolic fate. To study some of these aspects, the influence of poloxamer 407 (P407)-induced hyperlipidemia on metformin pharmacokinetics was assessed. Control and P407 treated adult male rats were administered 30 mg/kg metformin intravenously (iv). The pharmacokinetic assessments were performed at 2 time points, 36 and 108 h, following the intraperitoneal dose of P407 (1 g/kg)...

Pregnancy-associated atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome (P-aHUS) is a rare, potentially lethal condition that can complicate pregnancy in up to 1 in 25 000 cases. Without prompt diagnosis and initiation of appropriate treatment, this condition can lead to disastrous consequences for both mother and child. Given the broad spectrum of conditions that can present similarly in the peripartum period, it is often difficult to establish the correct diagnosis in a timely manner. Recently, the terminal complement cascade inhibitor eculizumab has been used with considerable success in non-pregnancy HUS; however, its use in P-aHUS is limited to isolated case reports...

BACKGROUND: Atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome (aHUS) is a rare condition with the triad of microangiopathic haemolytic anaemia, thrombocytopenia and acute kidney injury. Other conditions that present in a similar manner peri-partum include thrombotic thrombocytopaenic purpura, and pregnancy associated conditions including HELLP syndrome (haemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelets), severe pre-eclampsia and less commonly acute fatty liver of pregnancy. CASE REPORTS: We describe two cases of suspected aHUS, who presented post-partum with foetal death-in-utero at 33 and 37 weeks respectively...

BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) and renal stem/progenitors improve the recovery of acute kidney injury (AKI) mainly through the release of paracrine mediators including the extracellular vesicles (EVs). Several studies have reported the existence of a resident population of MSCs within the glomeruli (Gl-MSCs). However, their contribution towards kidney repair still remains to be elucidated. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether Gl-MSCs and Gl-MSC-EVs promote the recovery of AKI induced by ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) in SCID mice...

Renal damage due to urinary tract obstruction accounts for up to 30% of acute kidney injury in paediatrics and adults. Bilateral ureteral obstruction (BUO) is associated with polyuria and reduced urinary concentrating capacity. We investigated the renal handling of water and electrolytes together with the renal expression and the urinary excretion of the Na-K-Cl cotransporter (NKCC2) after 1 (BUO-1), 2 (BUO-2), and 7 (BUO-7) days of release of BUO. Immunoblotting and immunohistochemical studies showed that NKCC2 expression was upregulated in apical membranes both from BUO-2 and from BUO-7 rats...
