OBJECTIVES: Despite its survival benefits, bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) grafting is not commonly utilized due to concerns over deep sternal wound infection (DSWI). The present study investigated the early outcome of BITA grafting and analyzed the risk of DSWI using a Japanese national database (the Japan Adult Cardiovascular Surgery Database). METHODS: Data from 560 hospitals were used. Between April 2012 and December 2015, BITA was harvested in 14,249 patients, corresponding to 32...

End stage renal disease (ESRD) is a global health problem, and the gold standard treatment is kidney transplantation. However, due to the global shortage of organs, many patients with ESRD rely on dialysis for survival while waiting several years for a kidney transplant. An integrative review of qualitative studies was conducted on the experience of patients with ESRD who require either peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis while waiting for a deceased donor kidney transplant. Eight international studies were selected for review...

There is no simple way to prescribe hemodialysis. Changes in the dialysis population, improvements in dialysis techniques, and different attitudes towards the initiation of dialysis have influenced treatment goals and, consequently, dialysis prescription. However, in clinical practice prescription of dialysis still often follows a "one size fits all" rule, and there is no agreed distinction between treatment goals for the younger, lower-risk population, and for older, high comorbidity patients. In the younger dialysis population, efficiency is our main goal, as assessed by the demonstrated close relationship between depuration (tested by kinetic adequacy) and survival...

BACKGROUND: Previous contact with Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is common in patients undergoing hemodialysis. Literature has shown conflicting results on the risk of HBV reactivation in kidney transplant (KT) recipients with serologic evidence of past HBV infection. METHODS: We reviewed 631 consecutive KT recipients and selected 70 patients simultaneously HBsAg-negative and anti-HBc-positive before KT, regardless of hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs) status. Demographic characteristics, co-infection with other viruses, presence of a previous KT, induction and maintenance immunosuppression, length of follow up, biopsy-proven acute rejection episodes, incidence of impaired liver function and causes of graft loss and mortality were collected...

BACKGROUND: Heart rate variability (HRV), a non-invasive measurement of the sympathetic-vagal balance, has been demonstrated as a predictor of long-term survival in various patient populations. However, its predictive value in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has not been evaluated in a long-term follow-up study. METHODS: Prospective data collected for 41 patients with chronic hemodialysis (age 59 ± 10 years, men 51.3%, diabetes mellitus 31%, and duration of dialysis 64 ± 50 months) who underwent a 5-minute electrocardiogram (ECG) recording as a baseline for frequency domain HRV analysis...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: There is increasing evidence that extended-hours regimens are associated with improved outcomes for patients on maintenance hemodialysis programs. Home hemodialysis programs are a well established way for patients to benefit from extended-hours dialysis overnight; however, there are significant barriers to home hemodialysis, which means that for many this is not an option. In center, nocturnal hemodialysis is an increasingly recognized way of offering extended-hours treatment to patients unable to undertake home-based programs and is an underutilized modality for such patients to gain from the physiological benefits of extended-hours dialysis regimens...

INTRODUCTION: Vascular access (VA) in hemodialysis (HD) is essential to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients survival. Unfortunately, after some years in HD program, a significant number of patients may develop VA failure for many reasons. In this situation, arterial venous fistula (AVF) confection or catheters placement in traditional vascular sites (jugular, femoral or subclavian) are not feasible. In this scenario, translumbar tunneled dialysis catheter (TLDC) may be a salvage option...

BACKGROUND: Post-procedural risk stratification based on renal function after trans aortic valve implantation (TAVI) was assessed by means of a modified age, creatinine, and ejection fraction (ACEF) score using the lowest glomerular filtration rate (GFR), obtained within 1 week after valve implantation. We refer to the score as ACEF-7 score. METHODS: The Zurich- and Cardiocentro Ticino TAVI-Cohorts comprised of 424, and 137 patients, who were not on hemodialysis and had already survived the first post-procedural week...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is now considered a systemic disease due to the occurrence of extra-hepatic manifestations. Among these, the renal involvement is frequent. HCV infection, in fact, is strongly associated with proteinuria and chronic kidney disease (CKD) and negatively affects the prognosis of renal patients. In the last few years, availability of more specific and effective drugs against HCV has dramatically changed the clinical course of this disease. These drugs may provide further advantages in the CKD population as a whole by reducing progression of renal disease, mortality rate and by increasing the survival of graft in renal transplant recipients...

BACKGROUND: Hemodialysis (HD) guidelines recommend permanent vascular access (PVA) in children unlikely to receive kidney transplant within 1 year of starting HD. We aimed to determine predictors of primary and secondary patency of PVA in pediatric HD patients. METHODS: Retrospective chart reviews were performed for first PVAs in 20 participating centers. Variables collected included patient demographics, complications, interventions, and final outcome. RESULTS: There were 103 arterio-venous fistulae (AVF) and 14 AV grafts (AVG)...

BACKGROUND: IFNL4 polymorphisms are associated with circulating IFN-λ3, and higher plasma IFN-λ3 are associated with higher production of antibodies to HBV surface antigen (anti-HBs). The IFNL4 rs8099917 T allele and anti-HBs development in response to HBV vaccine are associated with better survival in hemodialysis (HD) patients. OBJECTIVE: To show whether plasma IFN-λ3 is also a predictor of survival in HD patients. METHOD: Plasma IFN-λ3 was measured in 135 HD patients who were followed-up for 2...

Ghrelin is an orexigenic hormone mainly secreted by the stomach, and it decreases according to the severity of gastric atrophy. Ghrelin has multiple favorable functions, including protein anabolism enhancement, anti-inflammatory activity, and cardiovascular protection, and is associated with survival in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Although the plasma level and role of ghrelin may be different depending on gender, they have not been completely assessed in HD patients. We enrolled 80 (male/female: 51/29) maintenance HD patients...

An alarming 468,000 people are dependent on dialysis for their end-stage renal disease (ESRD) management in the United States alone. Peritoneal dialysis is a preferred type of dialysis over hemodialysis, considering its initial survival advantage, patient satisfaction, and cost-effectiveness. One of the rare complications of peritoneal dialysis is abdominal and peritoneal pseudocyst formation. Literature regarding the accurate medical management of such peritoneal pseudocysts is scarce. Adding to this, management of recurrent loculated, non-malignant peritoneal pseudocyst poses to be challenging especially when pseudocysts recur after the offending peritoneal dialysis catheter is removed...
