The main objective of the present study was to identify markers of neural deficits in children with central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) by measuring latency and amplitude of the auditory cortical responses and mismatch negativity (MMN) responses. Passive oddball paradigms were used with nonverbal and verbal stimuli to record cortical auditory evoked potentials and MMN. Twenty-three children ages 9 to 12 participated in the study: 10 with normal hearing acuity as well as CAPD and 13 with normal hearing without CAPD...

A 74-year-old woman with liver cirrhosis and chronic kidney disease (CKD) who had complained of chronic abdominal distension due to prominent ascites presented with sudden dyspnea. Chest radiography showed massive right pleural effusion that shifted the mediastinum. Peritoneal scintigraphy using 99mTc-macroaggregated albumin revealed pleuroperitoneal communication (PPC). As her hydrothorax was refractory and frequent thoracentesis did not improve her respiratory distress, thoracoscopic surgery was performed for repair of the diaphragm defect...

♦ Background: Incremental peritoneal dialysis (PD), the gradual introduction of dialysate exchanges at less than full-dose therapy, has been infrequently described in clinical reports. One concern with less than full-dose dialysis is whether urea clearance targets are achievable with an incremental regimen. In this report, we used a large database of PD patients, across all membrane transport types, and performed urea kinetic modeling determinations of possible incremental regimens for an individual membrane type...

Early innovations in the delivery of peritoneal dialysis (PD) markedly improved its acceptability and lowered peritonitis rates. The standard osmotic agent was, and continues to be dextrose, an agent that is not ideal as it is readily absorbed. The development of icodextrin-containing dialysis fluid has allowed a long dwell time to provide more effective ultrafiltration. The development of a smaller, more easily used automated cycler, led to an increase in the proportion of patients on the cycler as opposed to CAPD...

INTRODUCTION: It is well-known that continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) is associated with complications. And some of these complications are well-demonstrated as abnormalities on computed tomographic peritoneogram (CTP). The objective of our study is to document the serial changes of these complications. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 125 patients treated with CAPD for end staged renal failure (ESRF) who had CTP conducted in our hospital between December 2006 and August 2015...

The article "It Is Time to Rethink Central Auditory Processing Disorder Protocols for School-Aged Children" (DeBonis, 2015) appeared in the American Journal of Audiology as a tutorial. The author used the argument made by Cowan, Rosen, and Moore (2009), referring to central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), that "such impairments have not been shown to uniquely contribute to a clearly defined condition that would warrant its inclusion in any of the major disease classification systems" (emphasis added; p...

Two patients with end-stage-renal-disease on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) presented with pleural effusions. The aspirated fluid was categorised as transudate, based on alkaline pH, low protein and lactic dehydrogenase level. A striking feature of the pleural fluid was, its very high glucose content that resulted from translocation of dextrose containing peritoneal dialysate into the pleural space via a pleuroperitoneal connection. One patient was transferred to hemodialysis, which led to complete resolution of pleural effusion...

The lifespan and outcome of end stage renal disease (ESRD) children have dramatically improved since the development of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), it offers several advantages over hemodialysis. Percutaneous placement of CAPD catheters in children is minimally invasive, reliable, safe and cost-effective method. Percutaneous method of CAPD catheter insertion can be used in children to avoid the complications of general anesthesia and surgery. This study was done to evaluate the efficacy of CAPD in children, to find out the complication profile of CAPD & to compare the advantages of surgical versus percutaneously placed CAPD catheters in children...

We investigated the relationship between geriatric nutritional risk index (GNRI) and subpopulation lymphocyte counts (SLCs) in hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients and evaluated whether they can be helpful in the diagnosis of malnutrition in these patients. We examined the GNRI and SLCs of 50 HD patients (mean: 55.8 ± 12.7 years; 28 men and 22 women) and 16 Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) patients (mean: 49.8 ± 14.5 years; 10 men and six women). The GNRI is calculated based on the serum albumin level, dry weight, and ideal body weight and uses the following equation: GNRI = [14...

Peritonitis remains a major complication of peritoneal dialysis (PD). A high peritonitis rate (HPR) affects continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients' technique survival and mortality. Predictors and outcomes of HPR, rather than the first peritonitis episode, were rarely studied in the Chinese population. In this study, we examined the risk factors associated with HPR and its effects on clinical outcomes in CAPD patients.This is a single center, retrospective, observational cohort study. A total of 294 patients who developing at least 1 episode of peritonitis were followed up from March 1st, 2002, to July 31, 2014, in our PD center...

Peritoneal protein loss is one of the inevitable consequences during continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Our objective was to study the effect of sulodexide on the protein loss and efficiency of dialysis. This study included six patients receiving CAPD treated with sulodexide at the dose of 600 IU/day given by intraperitoneal injection for 10 days. Clinical and biologic parameters were assessed before starting the treatment (D0 and after 10 days of treatment (D10. We also evaluated the benefit of therapy persisting 20 days after the end of treatment (D30...

BACKGROUND Conformity is a psychological variable related to the propensity of an individual to match his or her behavior and opinion to the perceived social and cultural norm, even if these do not represent the true beliefs of the person. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the psychological variable of conformity is different in two distinct modes of renal replacement therapy (RRT) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD). MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 56 hemodialyzed patients (HD group), 45 continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patients (CAPD group) and 62 healthy volunteers (CONTR group) were enrolled in the study...
