renal failure acute

Hiroshi Nonogi
The in-hospital mortality rate of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has dramatically decreased due to the treatment at the coronary care unit (CCU), especially with the progress of arrhythmia therapy and reperfusion therapy. On the other hand, severe heart failure and multiple organ failure are increasing due to aging populations and multiple organ diseases. As a result, patients with AMI without complications are less likely to be admitted to the CCU, and cardiologists staying in the CCU have also decreased...

BACKGROUND: Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is a severe complication after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), with the reported mortality rate in such cases usually reaching 90%. CASES: We report on two pediatric cases of patients successfully treated by eculizumab for severe HSCT-TMA, occurring in two girls (8.4 and 3.6 years). The first patient developed TMA with hematologic abnormalities and renal/pulmonary lesions after allogeneic HSCT for Philadelphia-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia; she received eculizumab 7 months after HSCT, with a dramatic improvement of renal function...

Pharmacokinetic parameters can be significantly altered for acute kidney injury (AKI), extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and continuous veno-venous hemofiltration therapy (CVVH). Here we reported a case of individualized vancomycin dosing for a patient diagnosed as severe acute pancreatitis treated with concurrent ECMO and CVVH. A 65 kg 32-year-old woman was admitted to hospital presented with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP), respiratory failure, metabotropic acidosis and hyperkalemia. She was admitted to intensive care unit (ICU) on hospital day 1 and was initiated on CVVH...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer is among the top causes of cancer-related mortality in men and is the second most common cancer after breast cancer in women. There are approximately 234,030 new cases of lung cancer and 154,050 deaths from lung cancer in 2018 as per the latest American Cancer Society's report. Alectinib, a more potent orally active tyrosine kinase inhibitor which was approved by the US Food & Drug Administration for anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive lung adenocarcinoma, has been shown to have a reasonable safety profile when compared with other anaplastic lymphoma kinase-targeted therapy...

Uremic encephalopathy (UE) is a metabolic disorder associated with acute or chronic renal failure. It is characterized by the acute or subacute onset of reversible neurological symptoms and specific imaging findings. It is uncommon for uremic encephalopathy to be associated with acute bilateral lesions of the basal ganglia in diabetic uremic patients, and this can be seen most often in Asian patients. Here, we report a patient with diabetic uremic encephalopathy and bilateral basal ganglia lesions who developed acute onset dysarthria...

Objective The standard anti-tuberculosis (TB) regimen occasionally causes acute kidney injury (AKI). The major etiology is rifampicin-induced acute interstitial nephritis. However, the standard management of AKI induced by anti-TB drugs has yet to be established. Patients and Methods We retrospectively reviewed patients with TB who developed AKI after starting standard anti-TB treatment between 2006 and 2016 at a single TB center. The clinical characteristics and the management are described. Results Among 1,430 patients with active TB, 15 (1...

Background: Cerebral oximetry using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) has well-documented benefits during cardiac surgery. The authors tested the hypothesis that NIRS technology can be used at other sites as a tissue oximeter during cardiac surgery and in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Aims: To establish feasibility of monitoring tissue oximetry during and after cardiac surgery, to examine the correlations between tissue oximetry values and cerebral oximetry values, and to examine correlations between oximetry values and mean arterial pressure (MAP) in order to test whether cerebral oximetry can be used as an index organ...

Immunoglobulin (Ig) therapy is used to treat a wide range of immunodeficiencies and autoimmune diseases; While, its clinical benefit has been demonstrated in several studies, Ig therapy is associated with a risk of systemic adverse effects. As such, Onset of renal impairment, including acute renal failure, osmotic nephrosis and renal insufficiency, after immunoglobulin administration is rare, but is one of the most significant concerns related to intravenous Ig use at immunomodulatory doses. However, only few studies have investigated the safety of subcutaneous Ig (SCIg) in relation to these rare conditions...

Hereditary fructose intolerance is an autosomal recessive disorder of fructose metabolism caused by catalytic deficiency of aldolase B enzyme [1]. The disease is typically expressed when fructose- and sucrose-containing foods are first introduced in the diet; acute manifestations include nausea, vomiting, abdominal distress, and symptomatic hypoglycemia [1,2]. Chronic fructose ingestion eventually leads to poor feeding, growth retardation and gradual liver and/or renal failure [3,4]. Some patients may remain undiagnosed until adulthood because of a self-protective avoidance of sweet tasting food that prevents the development of acute toxicity from fructose containing food; however, these subjects may suffer intermittent symptoms throughout life, leading to potentially serious misdiagnosis [4]...

Background: Outcomes after acute kidney injury (AKI) are well described, but not for those already under nephrology clinic care. This is where discussions about kidney failure risk are commonplace. We evaluated whether the established kidney failure risk equation (KFRE) should account for previous AKI episodes when used in this setting. Methods: This observational cohort study included 7491 people referred for nephrology clinic care in British Columbia in 2003-09 followed to 2016...
