Objective To translate and culturally adapt the tool Categorización de usuario según dependencia y riesgo en unidades de hemodiálisis (CUDYR-DIAL) into Brazilian Portuguese. Method This is a methodological study for the translation and cultural adaptation or localization of the instrument CUDYR-DIAL. Results In the pre-test stage, three nurses applied the instrument to 78 patients of the haemodialysis unit of the São Lucas Hospital of the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul. The average scores of each item were compared and no statistically significant differences were found in the data of the three evaluators, which demonstrates that the score of each professional in each item converges to the same value...

There is minimal data on the gait of hemodialysis (HD) patients with and without diabetes. This investigation examined spatiotemporal parameters of gait in HD patients with and without diabetes compared with age-matched, sex-matched, and BMI-matched controls. The effect of muscle weakness on gait in HD patients was also examined. Eighteen HD patients and 18 age-matched, sex-matched, and BMI-matched controls completed two walking trials along a 7.9 m long pressure sensitive pathway. The HD participants were divided into groups based on their diabetic status (eight patients without diabetes and 10 with diabetes)...

OBJECTIVES: This study’s objectives were to determine which anticoagulation methods are commonly used in patients who are undergoing haemodialysis (HD) in Spain, on what criteria do they depend, and the consequences arising from their use. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Ours was a cross-sectional study based on two types of surveys: a "HD Centre Survey" and a "Patient Survey". The first survey was answered by 87 adult HD units serving a total of 6093 patients, as well as 2 paediatric units...

BACKGROUND: Physical comorbidities and depression are associated with poor health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis, but little is known about the impact of psychological determinants such as coping strategies in this association. This study examined the relation between psychosocial factors, particularly health-related locus of control (HLOC) and quality of life (QoL) in chronic hemodialisys patients. METHODS: Three hundred hemodialysis patients underwent assessment of QoL (SF-36), depression (Beck Depression Inventory score), anxiety (State-Trait Anxiety Inventory), and HLOC profile (Multidimensional Health Locus of Control scale)...

INTRODUCTION: The different clinical guidelines backed by the Spanish Society of Nephrology (SEN) attempt to homogenise the monitoring of renal patients. However, this effort to homogenise treatment has been obstructed in the case of renal replacement therapy patients on haemodialysis due to, among other reasons, the existence of several different dialysis providers, with private centres located in many cities, each with their own reference hospitals and different criteria for treatment based on the existing outsourcing services agreements with the public health service, which also differ between regions...

A 59-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease of diabetic nephropathy who had been on maintenance hemodialisis for 4 years, underwent a living-unrelated renal transplantation 6 years ago. She was admitted to our hospital, because of a low grade fever and edema. Ultrasonography revealed the cyst with heterogeneity structure in the upper pole of the transplanted kidney. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a high-intensity cystic mass measuring 68×53 mm. As fever and laboratory data did not improve sufficiently by the treatment with antibiotics, echo-guided puncture and drainage were performed for the abnormal structure in the upper pole of the transplanted kidney...

INTRODUCTION: To guarantee continuity and equity in the clinical assistance of patients on hemodialysis in extrahospitalary centers (EC) a close relationship and a good level of communication between them and their reference hospitals (RH) is essential. The aim of this study was to assess the present situation of this relationship in our country (Spain) so as to be able to detect improvement opportunities. METHODS: Descriptive and transversal study using two self-report anonymous surveys: one for EC (81 questions) and one for RH (56 questions) sent by e-mail to all Spanish EC and RH registered in the Spanish Society of Nephrology...

The objective was to analyse the sources of attentional demands experienced by eight women with renal chronic disease undergone to hemodialisys treatment in a university hospital at the State of São Paulo. This is a qualitative study achieved by means of a semi-structured interview. The analysis was based on a content analysis technique. Among the demands the most important were: lack of perspective toward the future; death as an imminent possibility; lost of autonomy and dependence with the machine. Also important were maternal responsibility and the worry with friends that lived the same problem...

Vascular calcification is a strong predictor of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality. Coronary artery calcification is more frequent, more extensive and progresses more rapidly in CKD than in general population. They are also considered a marker of coronary heart disease, with high prevalence and functional significance. It suggests that detection and surveillance may be worthwhile in general clinical practice. New non-invasive image techniques, like Multi-detector row CT, a type of spiral scanner, assess density and volume of calcification at multiple sites and allow quantitative scoring of vascular calcification using calcium scores analogous to those from electron-beam CT...

A cross sectional study was performed in order to evaluate the treatment conditions and medical outcomes among 131 prevalent hemodialysis patients (57% males; mean age 66 +/- 12 years) in Huesca and Teruel. Data were collected at 5 hemodialysis units in Huesca and Teruel. Diabetes mellitus, at 30 percent, was the most common cause of renal insufficiency. The mean (+/- SD) urea-reduction ratio (URR) was 66.0 +/- 8.8%. We observed that 56.5% of the population reached an URR higher than 65%. The duration of dialysis session was 220 +/- 24 minutes, with a rate of blood flow 297 +/- 47 ml/min...

UNLABELLED: Hypertension is a common and difficult clinic problem in patients undergoing cronical hemodialysis and exerts a deleterious effect on mordibidy and mortality in end stage renal disease. Identification of potentially reversible factors associated with hypertension would be rational fist step in designing and effective therapeutic strategy. Our study aimed to document the prevalence of hypertension in hemodialysis patients in Andalucia and identify and characterise the demographic, epidemiological, clinical factors and dialysis regimens associated with hypertension...

Hemoglobin and myoglobin heme pigments and iron have acute and chronic nephrotoxic effects, which are often associated with massive hemolysis and rhabdomyolysis. We report a patient with a myelodysplastic syndrome and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria phenotype who developed an acute renal failure after a severe haemolytic crisis. There was not evidence of renal vascular pathology, urinary tract obstruction or prerenal factors. Renal biopsy showed features of acute tubular necrosis, with extended iron deposits in tubule cell cytoplasm and tubulo-interstitial fibrosis and atrophy...

An important task of the nephrologists during the last century, it has been the search of elements and means that allow us, with the adequate precision, to correlate the functional deterioration of the kidney, and the patient's clinical reality. And the continuous searching of factors and markers that injure them, the prognosis, and early diagnosis, to be able to predict the degree of the organs and patient's survival. Almost parallel survival presage in the natural history of the illness, almost one century ago...

In spite of recent advances in perioperative management, the risk of neurosurgical intervention for patients with chronic renal failure is still considered too high. In this study, coil embolization for incidental aneurysms in such patients is demonstrated in reference to midterm results. A 42-year-old woman with a history of hemodialisis for 7 years presented with subcortical hemorrhage in her right frontal lobe. The magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) demonstrated a distal anterior cerebral artery aneurysm, but it was considered to be unrelated to the hemorrhage...

Hemodialized pediatric patients are a risk population for the hepatitis B and C virus infection. The aim of this paper was to study the serum prevalence of HBV and HCV infection in hemodialized children. We study 61 pediatric patients at hemodialisis, 12 on renal transplant, range between 2 and 20 years old (mean: 12.9 years), 23 male and 38 female. The specific anti-HCV IgC were measured by enzyme immunoassay (ELISA Abbott) and confirmed by LIA-TEK (Organon). The anti-HBV were measured by ELISA Abbott and transaminases by cinetic method (ASAT: 29 UI/L and ALT: 33 UI/L)...
