Cardiovascular (CV) event is the most common cause of death in dialysis patients. Both traditional and nontraditional CV risk factors related to malnutrition, inflammation, and anemia are commonly found in this population. This study was conducted to evaluate the burden factors of CV risk factors and its management in our regularly dialyzed patients. It was a single-center, cross-sectional analysis of prevalent intermittent hemodialysis (IHD) and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients followed up in our hospital...

BACKGROUND: Refractory peritonitis is defined as failure of clearance of peritoneal fluid despite 5 days of appropriate antibiotic therapy. Catheter removal decreases morbidity and mortality. Data on the outcomes of refractory peritonitis and of reinitiation of peritoneal dialysis (PD) in this group of patients are sparse. The present study analyzed etiology, outcomes, and prognostic factors of refractory peritonitis as well as survival of the reinitiation of the technique. METHODS: This was a single-center retrospective study that included 90 patients of refractory continuous ambulatory PD (CAPD) peritonitis at a tertiary care center in North India...

Arousal from sleep in response to CO2 is a critical protective phenomenon. Dysregulation of CO2-induced arousal contributes to morbidity and mortality from prevalent diseases like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Despite the critical nature of this protective reflex, the precise mechanism for CO2-induced arousal is unknown. Since CO2 is a major regulator of breathing, prevailing theories suggest that activation of respiratory chemo- and mechano-sensors is required for CO2-induced arousal...

Aluminum intoxication in chronic hemodialysis patients has virtually vanished over the last decade. Therefore, the diagnosis is rarely advocated at present. Aluminum intoxication in dialysis patients associates to different degrees with dialysis encephalopathy, bone disorders and microcytic anemia. We report here the observation of a patient receiving intermittent hemodialysis therapy who presented with acute encephalopathy. It turned out to be caused by aluminum intoxication secondary to a defect in dialysis water treatment...

A pseudo-one compartment model has been proposed to describe phosphorus kinetics during hemodialysis and the immediate post-dialysis period. This model assumes that phosphorus mobilization from tissues is proportional to the difference between the pre-dialysis serum concentration (a constant) and the instantaneous serum concentration. The current study is exploratory and evaluated the ability of a pseudo-one compartment model to describe the kinetics of phosphorus during two short hemodialysis treatments separated by a 60-min inter-treatment period without dialysis; the latter is the post-dialysis rebound period for the first short hemodialysis treatment...

BACKGROUND: Cefepime is a widely used antibiotic with neurotoxicity attributed to its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and exhibit concentration-dependent ϒ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) antagonism. Neurotoxic symptoms include depressed consciousness, encephalopathy, aphasia, myoclonus, seizures, and coma. Data suggest that up to 15% of ICU patients treated with cefepime may experience these adverse effects. Risk factors include renal dysfunction, excessive dosing, preexisting brain injury, and elevated serum cefepime concentrations...

Background: With its convective component, hemodiafiltration (HDF) provides better middle molecule clearance compared with hemodialysis (HD) and is postulated to improve survival. A previous analysis of Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) data in 1998-2001 found lower mortality rates for high replacement fluid volume HDF versus HD. Randomized controlled trials have not shown uniform survival advantage for HDF; in secondary (non-randomized) analyses, better outcomes were observed in patients receiving the highest convection volumes...

The magnetic separation of pathogenic compounds from body fluids is an appealing therapeutic concept. Recently, removal of a diverse array of pathogens has been demonstrated using extracorporeal dialysis-type devices. The contact time between the fluid and the magnetic beads in such devices is limited to a few minutes. This poses challenges, particularly if large compounds such as bacteria or cells need to be removed. Here, we report on the feasibility to remove cells from body fluids in a continuous dialysis type of setting...

Peritonitis remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality during chronic peritoneal dialysis (PD). Glucose-based PD fluids reduce immunological defenses in the peritoneal cavity. Low concentrations of peritoneal extracellular glutamine during PD may contribute to this immune deficit. For these reasons we have developed a clinical assay to measure the function of the immune-competent cells in PD effluent from PD patients. We then applied this assay to test the impact on peritoneal immune-competence of PD fluid supplementation with alanyl-glutamine (AlaGln) in 6 patients in an open-label, randomized, crossover pilot trial (EudraCT 2012-004004-36), and related the functional results to transcriptome changes in PD effluent cells...

Hypertension is a comorbidity that is present in the majority of end-stage renal disease patients on maintenance hemodialysis. This population is particularly unique because of the dynamic nature of blood pressure (BP) during dialysis. Modest BP decreases are expected in most hemodialysis patients, but intradialytic hypotension and intradialytic hypertension are two special situations that deviate from this as either an exaggerated or paradoxical response to the dialysis procedure. Both of these phenomena are particularly important because they are associated with increased mortality risk compared to patients with modest decreases in BP during dialysis...

INTRODUCTION: Necrotizing fasciitis is an uncommon soft-tissue infection that involves the superficial fascia, subcutaneous fat, and deep fascia. Herein, we report the first case of Enterobacter cloacae-related necrotizing fasciitis after peritoneal dialysis in delayed graft function. CASE: A 58-year-old man, who was a hepatitis B-viral carrier and had atrial fibrillation, received cadaveric renal transplantation with peritoneal dialysis and encountered delayed graft function...

Potassium balance is a difficult task in hemodialysis: low potassium in the dialysate is associated with a high risk of sudden cardiac death, whereas excessive dialysate potassium may provoke insufficient removal and hyperkalemia. A better understanding of the problem can be achieved with the use of mathematical models of solute kinetics. This study is aimed at presenting an improved model of solute kinetics and fluid shifts during hemodialysis. It comprises a 2-compartment (intracellular and extracellular) description of sodium, potassium, and urea, including volume fluid shifts induced by osmotic forces...

BACKGROUND: Hyperkalemia is prevalent in end-stage renal disease patients, being involved in life-threatening arrhythmias. Although polystyrene sulfonate (PS) is commonly used for the treatment of hyperkalemia, direct comparison of effects between calcium and sodium PS (CPS and SPS) on mineral and bone metabolism has not yet been studied. METHODS: In a randomized and crossover design, 20 pre-dialysis patients with hyperkalemia (>5 mmol/l) received either oral CPS or SPS therapy for 4 weeks...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The study objective was to determine whether intravenous contrast administration for computed tomography (CT) is independently associated with increased risk for acute kidney injury and adverse clinical outcomes. METHODS: This single-center retrospective cohort analysis was performed in a large, urban, academic emergency department with an average census of 62,179 visits per year; 17,934 ED visits for patients who underwent contrast-enhanced, unenhanced, or no CT during a 5-year period (2009 to 2014) were included...

Faster peritoneal transport status has been associated with adverse outcomes for peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Peritoneal protein clearance, through large pores, may be a surrogate marker of local inflammation. We wished to determine whether peritoneal protein transport increased with PD duration or was associated with extracellular water (ECW) expansion. We studied the relationships between 4 h Dialysate (D)/Serum (S) protein and ECW excess, using multifrequency bioelectrical impedance assessments, in 103 PD patients with up to 4 years of prospectively collected peritoneal equilibrium test (PET) results...

BACKGROUND: Continuous intradialytic calf bioimpedance spectroscopy (cBIS) allows assessment of changes in calf extracellular fluid volume (ECV) to determine dry weight (DW) in hemodialysis patients. During dialysis, calf ECV decreases until excessive ECV has been removed and normalized resistivity ρN,5 rises to values comparable to those of a normal population (cBIS-DW). It is not clear whether chronic kidney disease (CKD) itself influences ρN,5 and whether normal values depend on race and ethnicity...

BACKGROUND: South Asian countries have a population of 1.7 billion and are classified as low-middle to poor income nations. Their health care systems cannot presently meet the growing need for renal replacement therapy (RRT), provided as haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis (PD). Most patients cannot afford the treatment and quickly default. Furthermore, most of the population is located in rural areas, where there are few treatment centres; therefore, there is a huge gap between those treated and those in need...

INTRODUCTION: Halomonas hamiltonii is a Gram-negative, halophilic, motile, and nonspore-forming rod bacterium. Although most Halomonas sp. are commonly found in saline environments, it has rarely been implicated as a cause of human infection. Herein, the authors present a case report of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD)-related peritonitis attributed to H hamiltonii. CASE PRESENTATION: An 82-year-old male patient who had been receiving CAPD therapy presented to an emergency department with complaints of abdominal pain and cloudy dialysate that had persisted for 2 days...
