INTRODUCTION: Reliable markers to predict sudden cardiac death (SCD) in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) remain elusive, but echocardiogram (ECG) parameters may help stratify patients. Given their roles as markers for myocardial dispersion especially in high risk populations such as those with Brugada syndrome, we hypothesized that the Tpeak to Tend (TpTe) interval and TpTe/QT are independent risk factors for SCD in ESRD. METHODS: Retrospective chart review was conducted on a cohort of patients with ESRD starting hemodialysis...

Introduction: Cardiac dysfunction is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Previous studies have shown that kidney transplantation can reverse some of the gross changes in the myocardial structure such as left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and volumes. Whether kidney transplantation can reverse the subtle and early myocardial changes in ESRD patients who do not suffer from gross alternations in myocardial function is not yet studied. The aim of this study was to answer this question...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease known to affect a variety of organ systems. Patients with SLE are more prone to developing common infections that can mimic the complications of SLE. As such, it is essential to differentiate complications of SLE from infection to ensure appropriate management and to improve morbidity and mortality of this patient population. Here we present a 24-year-old, Hispanic male, with SLE complicated by dialysis-dependent end-stage renal disease and dilated cardiomyopathy...

There are a lot of controversies pertaining to correctness of timing for the initiation of dialysis in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. The present study was conducted to examine the potential association of initiation timing of dialyses with long-term prognosis in CKD patients. In total, 294 patients confirmed as end-stage renal disease (ESRD) were included as study subjects. According to the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) at initiation time, the patients were classified into four groups based on eGFR: ≥10...

Pericardial tamponade is a rare cause of acute liver injury due to the compressive effects of an effusion resulting in a poor cardiac output which ultimately leads to ischemia-induced injury. We present a patient with chronic hepatitis C infection and end-stage renal disease who was transferred to our center for further evaluation and management of acute liver injury after presenting to an outside hospital with left upper quadrant abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. The patient was discovered to have tamponade physiology on transthoracic echocardiogram as an underlying cause of his acute liver injury despite lack of clinical tamponade features...

Background: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a major public health problem worldwide. There is limited literature on a model to project the number of people with CKD. This study projects the number of residents with CKD in Singapore by 2035 using a Markov model. Methods: A Markov model with nine mutually exclusive health states was developed according to the clinical course of CKD, based on a discrete time interval of 1 year. The model simulated the transition of cohorts across different health states from 2007 to 2035 using prevalence, incidence, mortality, disease transition, and disease detection rates...

BACKGROUND: Mortality in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) occurs predominantly from cardiovascular disease (CVD) and sudden cardiac death (SCD). Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by periodic airflow limitation associated with sleep arousal and oxygen desaturation and is prevalent in patients with ESRD. Whether OSA increases the risk for SCD, cardiovascular and all-cause mortality among hemodialysis patients remains unknown. METHODS: In a prospective cohort of 558 incident hemodialysis patients, we examined the association of OSA with all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality, and SCD using Cox proportional hazards models controlling for traditional CVD risk factors...

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular (CV) diseases are major causes of mortality in uremic patients. Conventional risk factors fail to identify uremic patients with increased propensity for adverse CV outcomes. We aimed to test the hypothesis that circulating long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) could be a prognostic marker to predict adverse CV outcomes in uremic patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: Plasma lncRNAs were profiled in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD, n = 28) or chronic kidney disease (CKD, n = 8) and in healthy (n = 12) subjects by RNA sequencing...

BACKGROUND: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is the last stage of chronic kidney disease, mainly caused by type 2 diabetes mellitus and characterized by an increased mortality risk related to cardiovascular disease. Low-dose aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid or ASA) seems to effectively prevent cardiovascular events in patients with ESRD. However, the number of interventional studies in this population remains limited and the mechanisms of aspirin-related bleeding remain poorly understood. Aspirin's efficacy and safety may be modified by the presence of type 2 diabetes mellitus or platelet hyperreactivity...

Chronic kidney disease mineral bone disorder (CKD-MBD) is common in end-stage renal disease and is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Mainstays of treatment include decreasing serum phosphorus level toward the normal range with dietary interventions and phosphate binders and treating increased parathyroid hormone levels with activated vitamin D and/or calcimimetics. There is significant variation in serum levels of mineral metabolism markers, intestinal absorption of phosphorus, and therapeutic response among individual patients and subgroups of patients with end-stage renal disease...
