BACKGROUND: Serum N-terminal probrain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) level is known to be strongly associated with fluid overload, and serves as a guide for fluid management in patients on hemodialysis (HD). This study aimed at investigating the relationship between NT-proBNP level and blood pressure (BP), ultrafiltration/dry weight ratio as well as hemoglobin, and to explore the optimal cutoff point of NT-proBNP level in Chinese patients on HD. METHODS: A total of 2306 patients on maintained HD for stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) were included in this prospective study...

It is well known that a combination therapy with peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD) is feasible and may improve clinical status in patients for whom adequate solute and fluid removal is difficult to achieve with PD alone. The objective of the present study was to evaluate whether the therapy is useful in the likelihood of long-term peritoneal membrane and cardiac function. The therapy was 6 days of PD and one session of HD per week. Physical, biochemical, dialysate-to-plasma ratio of creatinine (D/P Cr), arteriovenous fistula (AVF) blood flow, and left ventricular mass index (LVMI) data were prospectively analyzed in 30 patients with measurements performed at 0 and 6 months, and for 21 patients, 12 or 18 months after initiation of the therapy...

Health-related quality of life is an important, yet neglected aspect of chronic kidney disease (CKD) care. We evaluated the quality of life and its determinants across CKD 3 to 5D using a kidney disease specific tool (Kidney Disease Quality of Life-SF™) in an underprivileged, predominantly rural population with high rates of illiteracy and unemployment. The scores of individual domains were summarized to three composite scores - physical composite summary (PCS), mental composite summary (MCS), and kidney disease component summary score (KDCS)(...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a highly prevalent sleep disease among patients on hemodialysis. The physiopathology is still unclear, and may be multifactorial. Because of the association between iron metabolism and chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorders (CKD-MBD), we hypothesized that both factors would be associated with RLS. METHODS: We have evaluated hemodialysis patients, in a face-to-face interview for the diagnosis and severity of RLS, as measured by the International Restless Legs Syndrome Study Group...

Ahmed Zeidan, Sunil Bhandari
Iron deficiency, both functional and absolute, is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), especially those requiring dialysis. Guidelines advocate treatment of iron-deficiency anemia in patients with CKD and those on peritoneal dialysis (PD). Oral iron is often insufficient and slow to improve hemoglobin concentrations because of high hepcidin levels causing impaired absorption and mobilization, while intravenous (IV) supplementation replenishes and maintains iron stores more effectively and is now standard practice (Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes [KDIGO] 2012 guidelines)...

The relationship between increased hemodialysis hours and patient outcomes remains unclear. We randomized (1:1) 200 adult recipients of standard maintenance hemodialysis from in-center and home-based hemodialysis programs to extended weekly (≥24 hours) or standard (target 12-15 hours, maximum 18 hours) hemodialysis hours for 12 months. The primary outcome was change in quality of life from baseline assessed by the EuroQol 5 dimension instrument (3 level) (EQ-5D). Secondary outcomes included medication usage, clinical laboratory values, vascular access events, and change in left ventricular mass index...

OBJECTIVE: Depression is a common bio-psycho-social problem in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Traditional Chinese medicine has been used for symptom management in patients with depression. Identification of the specific constitution in traditional Chinese medicine is critical for personalized care. However, the association between depression and specific constitution in HD patients is unknown. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study in all chronic HD patients (HD for more than 3 months) at China Medical University Hospital in Taiwan...

INTRODUCTION: HFE gene mutations are responsible from iron overload in general population. Studies in hemodialysis patients investigated the effect of presence of HFE gene mutations on serum ferritin and transferrin saturation (TSAT) with conflicting results. However effect of HFE mutations on iron overload in hemodialysis patients was not previously extensively studied. METHODS: 36 hemodialysis patients (age 51.3 ± 15.6, (18/18) male/female) and 44 healthy control subjects included in this cross sectional study...

INTRODUCTION: The outcomes of patients who fail their kidney transplant and return to dialysis (RTD) has not been investigated in a nationally representative sample. We hypothesized that variations in management of transplant chronic kidney disease stage 5 leading to kidney allograft failure (KAF) and RTD, such as access, nutrition, timing of dialysis, and anemia management predict long-term survival. METHODS: We used an incident cohort of patients from the United States Renal Data System who initiated hemodialysis between January 1, 2003 and December 31, 2008, after KAF...

BACKGROUND: Transplant recipients are supposedly in a more anemic, catabolic, and even inflammatory state at re-entering hemodialysis due to chronic rejection. The goal of this study was to clarify how transplant recipients can re-enter dialysis safely by focusing on control of anemia. METHODS: From 2012 to 2014, a total of 29 transplant recipients re-entered hemodialysis because of chronic rejection (ie, the chronic kidney disease with transplant [CKDT] group)...

Regional cerebral oximetry using near-infrared spectroscopy device, an INVOS 5100 C (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, USA), during cardiac surgery aims to avoid perioperative neurological impairment, especially during cardiopulmonary bypass. However, it is not uncommon to encounter critically low initial cerebral regional oxygen saturation or a low value unresponsive to intervention. Therefore, it is important to identify factors associated with low saturation value other than true cerebral hypoxia. We investigated the relationship between preoperative regional cerebral oxygen saturation and clinical variables during cardiac surgery...

The international guideline from Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes suggests a hemoglobin target of 11 to 12 g/dl for children with chronic kidney disease. However, information to support this proposal is very limited in the pediatric population. Because of controversy, the unmet need is the establishment of an appropriate target hemoglobin level in children with chronic kidney disease. Here, Rheault and colleagues provide valuable new information, reporting the association of hemoglobin levels with cardiovascular morbidity in pediatric hemodialysis patients...
