INTRODUCTION: Co-administration of a diuretic or calcium channel blocker with an ACE inhibitor are both preferred combinations in patients with hypertensive chronic kidney disease (CKD). According to the available evidence, it is still unknown which combination plays a more active role in renal protection. We hypothesised that a combination of fosinopril and benidipine may delay the progression of CKD more effectively than a combination of fosinopril and hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ). METHODS AND ANALYSIS: This study will be a multicentred, prospective, double-blind, randomised parallel controlled trial for hypertensive CKD patients in China...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Studies assessing the performance of 7-point subjective global assessment (7p-SGA) and malnutrition inflammation score (MIS) to assess longitudinal changes in nutritional status are lacking. Thus, we aimed to investigate whether longitudinal changes in 7p-SGA and MIS were associated with changes in objective parameters of nutritional status, as well as to evaluate the prognostic value of 7p-SGA and MIS on hospitalization events. METHODS: One hundred and four patients aged ≥60 years (70...

INTRODUCTION: Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines recommend vitamin D supplementation in hemodialyzed patients to monitor 25(OH)-vitamin D 25(OH)D levels. However, patient-to-patient inconsistency can be observed in response to the treatment. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the impact of the dialysis membrane on 25(OH)D, albumin (Alb) and vitamin D-binding protein (VDBP), the major players of vitamin D transport and storage. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Alb (Cobas), VDBP (R&D) and 25(OH)D (liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry) were measured in 75 patients before and after a 4-hour dialysis session...

BACKGROUND: Prognostic uncertainty is one barrier to engaging in goals-of-care discussions in chronic kidney disease (CKD). The surprise question ("Would you be surprised if this patient died in the next 12 months?") is a tool to assist in prognostication. However, it has not been studied in non-dialysis-dependent CKD and its reliability is unknown. STUDY DESIGN: Observational study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: 388 patients at least 60 years of age with non-dialysis-dependent CKD stages 4 to 5 who were seen at an outpatient nephrology clinic...

BACKGROUND: When the permeability of the glomerular filtration barrier increases, leading to proteinuria, nephrotic syndrome (NS) occurs. First episodes or relapses of NS can be concurrent with acute gastroenteritis (AGE) infections. This condition can cause further deterioration of the hypovolemic state, as intravascular water is lost through both AGE-related vomiting/diarrhea and NS-related fluid shifting into the interstitium. In this case report, we wish to raise the issues about the difficult management of children presenting with both NS and AGE...

BACKGROUND: Liver failure (LF) is associated with prolonged hospital stay, increased cost and substantial mortality. Due to the limited number of donor organs, extracorporeal liver support is suggested as an appealing concept to "bridge to transplant" or to avoid transplant in case of recovery. ADVanced Organ Support (ADVOS) is a new type of albumin dialysis, that provides rapid regeneration of toxin-binding albumin by two purification circuits altering the binding capacities of albumin by biochemical (changing of pH) and physical (changing of temperature) modulation of the dialysate...

Tuberculous peritonitis is rare in the United States but continues to be reported to occur in certain high-risk populations, which include patients with AIDS or cirrhosis, patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, recent immigrants from areas of high endemicity, and those who are immunosuppressed. The diagnosis of this disease requires a high clinical index of suspicion and should be considered in the differential of ascites with a lymphocyte predominance and serum-ascitic albumin gradient of <1...

PURPOSE: The prognostic nutritional index (PNI), a variable based on serum albumin concentration and total lymphocyte count in peripheral blood, is reported as a predictor of mortality in a variety of malignant tumor population. This study is aimed to evaluate whether PNI has prognostic value in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD). METHODS: This was a single-center, retrospective observational cohort study conducted in incident PD patients from January 1, 2006 to June 30, 2014, and followed until June 30, 2015...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: In our earlier studies, we reported high concentrations of intra- and extracellular calcium ions (Ca2+) in the deeper epidermis of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and associated pruritus. To determine the cause of this phenomenon, we measured total calcium (TCa) concentrations in the deeper epidermis and performed immunostaining of epidermal albumin, which binds to Ca2+. METHODS: This study included 45 patients with CKD-stage 5, which was defined as severely reduced kidney function (i...

INTRODUCTION: Recent randomised controlled trials suggest that on-line hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) improves survival, provided that it reaches high convective volumes. However, there is scant information on the feasibility and the consequences of modifying convection volumes in clinics. METHODS: Twelve stable dialysis patients were treated with high-flux 1.8 m2 polysulphone dialyzers and 4 levels of convection flows (QUF) based on GKD-UF monitoring of the system, for 1 week each...

BACKGROUND: During the course of acute kidney injury (AKI) patients may require renal replacement therapy (RRT). The preferred therapeutic measure for such patients is continuous RRT (CRRT). Anticoagulation is required to prevent clotting of the extracorporeal circuit. The actual KDIGO guidelines recommend citrate as the first line anticoagulant. METHODS: Citrate dose infused into the extracorporeal circuit should achieve an extracorporeal calcium concentration of 0...

The peritoneal dialysis (PD) patient population has grown rapidly in the past few years with concern over poor early outcomes. We report 6-month outcomes of incident PD patients in an experienced program with a strong focus on quality care. We analyzed data from an Institutional Review Board (IRB)- approved registry of all incident PD patients from January 1, 1991, to December 31, 2013, with follow-up to June 30, 2014. Time at risk began on the first day of training. Age, gender, race, diabetes mellitus (DM), Charlson comorbidity index (CCI), and albumin were collected at PD start...

BACKGROUND: Because initiation of dialysis therapy often occurs in the setting of acute illness and may signal worsening health and functional decline, we examined whether rates of serious fall injuries among older hemodialysis patients differ before and after dialysis therapy initiation. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of claims data from the 2 years spanning dialysis therapy initiation among patients initiating dialysis therapy in 2010 to 2012. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Claims from 81,653 Medicare end-stage renal disease beneficiaries aged 67 to 100 years...

Acute liver failure (ALF) plasma has cytotoxic effects on the cell-loaded bioreactor in bioartificial liver support systems due to the presence of innumerable hepatotoxic compounds that adversely affect the morphology and functionality of the cells. We have designed a hybrid bioreactor that integrates a hepatic cell-loaded cryogel disc and an activated carbon cloth in one compact unit, with potential application as a bioartificial liver support. In this article, we assess the performance of this integrated hybrid cryogel-based bioreactor in a perfusion-based culture system and analyze its functionality and longevity in the presence of intermittent exposure to ALF plasma...

PURPOSE: Gastrointestinal bleeding remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality for patients who need hemodialysis treatment. Our aim was to evaluate patients who needed hemodialysis and presented with bleeding during their hospital stay (uremic bleeding patients). Factors that increased the risk of bleeding and death were evaluated. Additionally, uremic bleeding patients were compared to non-uremic bleeding patients regarding gastrointestinal findings. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty-one uremic bleeding patients were compared to two control groups which included uremic (hemodialysis dependent and non-bleeding) and non-uremic (no renal insufficiency and bleeding) patients...

A girl aged six months was hospitalized because of resistant seizures and was discharged with phenobarbital and carbamazepine therapy. She was admitted to a state hospital with symptoms of inability to waken and difficulty in breathing. It was learned that phenobarbital had been used incorrectly and the patient was sent to our pediatric intensive care unit because of severe phenobarbital overdose. The decision was taken for hemodialysis. Single-pass albumin dialysis was planned because phenobarbital can bind to high levels of plasma protein...

BACKGROUND: Human plasma gelsolin (pGSN) is an actin-binding protein that is secreted into the extracellular fluid, with the skeletal muscle and myocardial tissues being its major source. Depletion of pGSN has been shown to be related to a variety of inflammatory and clinical conditions. METHODS: pGSN levels were prospectively determined in prevalent maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patients from 3 U.S. dialysis centers. Demographics (age, time since dialysis initiation, race, gender, body height and weight, comorbidities), inflammatory markers (C reactive protein, CRP; interleukin 6, IL-6), free triiodothyronine (fT3), and routine laboratory parameters were obtained...
