BACKGROUND: Clinical practice guidelines recommend referral to nephrology when estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) decreases to <30mL/min/1.73m(2); however, evidence for benefits of nephrology care are mixed. STUDY DESIGN: Observational cohort using landmark analysis. SETTINGS & PARTICIPANTS: A national cohort of veterans with advanced chronic kidney disease, defined as an outpatient eGFR≤30mL/min/1.73m(2) for January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010, and a prior eGFR<60mL/min/1...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with critical limb ischaemia (CLI) lack sufficient blood flow in to the limb, which leads to difficulties in the normal wound healing process. Therefore, maggot debridement therapy (MDT) has not generally been recommended for CLI patients. We evaluated the effectiveness of wound bed preparation by MDT in CLI patients who had undergone mid-foot amputation. METHODS: Patients who underwent mid-foot amputation after angioplasty between April 2014 and October 2016 were retrospectively investigated by classifying them into an MDT group or a conventional treatment group...

PURPOSE: Higher health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in dialysis patients has been associated with fewer hospitalizations and lower mortality. Since Arab patients on dialysis have better survival rates than Jewish patients, we hypothesized that they would have higher HRQOL. We also studied the impact of several risk factors on HRQOL in each population. METHODS: Based on a national dialysis registry, patients from 64 hemodialysis units were recruited to participate...

PURPOSE: Currently, the foreign surfaces of various extracorporeal circulation devices are coated with a biocompatible polymer coating agent (BPA), which creates a hydrophilic blood-contacting layer to reduce thrombogenicity, while the membranes in hemodialyzers are not. We aimed to clarify other side effects of BPA-coated membranes by examining the diffusion performance in in vitro experiments. METHODS: We used a polyethersulfone membrane (sieving coefficient of albumin is ≤0...

Clozapine (CLZ), a dibenzodiazepine, is demonstrated as the optimal antipsychotic for patients suffering from treatment-resistant schizophrenia. Like many other drugs, understanding the concentration of CLZ in a patient's blood is critical for managing the patients' symptoms, side effects, and overall treatment efficacy. To that end, various electrochemical techniques have been adapted due to their capabilities in concentration-dependent sensing. An open question associated with electrochemical CLZ monitoring is whether drug-protein complexes (i...

BACKGROUND: Low thyroid hormone (TH) levels and myocardial damage are common in dialysis patients and are associated with mortality. However, little is known about the role of THs on myocardial damage as has been described in primary thyroid diseases. The aim of this study was to explore the potential relationship between low total triiodothyronine (total T3) and biomarkers of myocardial damage and the effect of their interaction on mortality, to ascertain if cardiovascular damage is the link between low THs and the risk of death in dialysis patients with CKD...

BACKGROUND: Hypertension (HT) is the second leading cause of kidney failure. In hypertensive patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), blood pressure (BP) control is the most important intervention to minimise progression. For CKD diagnosis, standardised creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) testing by CKD-EPI is recommended. OBJECTIVES: To describe the prevalence and factors associated with a moderate decrease in eGFR (by CKD-EPI) and BP control in subjects with HT...

Erythropoietin resistance index calculation has been used as a tool to evaluate anemia response to erythropoietin therapy. Very little has been reported in its use when using darbepoetin and factors influencing in Arab patients. Darbepoetin resistance index (DRI) was calculated in all our patients using darbepoetin. This was correlated to demographic, clinical, and laboratory parameters. Of the 250 patients, 40.4% were diabetic, 71.1% on hemodialysis, and 28.6% on hemodiafiltration), 23.9% with PermCaths (PC), and 76...

Atherosclerosis is frequently present in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) treated with dialysis. We evaluated the association between residual renal function (RRF), phosphate level, inflammation and other risk factors in carotid modeling as a marker of early atherosclerosis in peritoneal dialysis (PD) compared with hemodialysis (HD) patients. We studied 39 stable PD and 53 HD patients on renal replacement therapy (RRT) for 3 to 36 months duration. B-mode ultrasonography was used to determine carotid artery intima media thickness (CIMT)...

Urinary matrix metalloproteinase-7 (uMMP-7) levels consistently reflect the activity of intrarenal Wnt/β-catenin, which is activated in AKI models. To test the hypothesis that uMMP-7 is a predictor for severe AKI in patients after cardiac surgery, we performed a prospective, multicenter, two-stage cohort study in 721 patients undergoing cardiac surgery. In stage 1, we enrolled 323 children from three academic medical centers. In stage 2, we enrolled 398 adults at six centers. We analyzed levels of uMMP-7 and other injury biomarkers during the perioperative period...
