We investigated the impact of contrast media (CM) with different osmolality on cardiac preload in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and congestive heart failure (CHF). Patients with CKD and CHF were equally randomized to receive either iso-osmolar contrast media (IOCM) iodixanol or low-osmolar contrast media iopromide. We measured cardiac preload indexes by invasive hemodynamic monitoring before and after CM injection. Major adverse cardiac events postprocedures were recorded. Increase in extravascular lung water index was only seen in the iopromide group ( P < ...

AIM: to assess immediate and long-term results of coronary angioplasty and stenting in patients older than 80 years - a high risk group in view of the severity of concomitant pathology and extent of coronary atherosclerosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted retrospective analysis of data from 167 patients older than 80 years (mean age 81.43+/-2.14 years) subjected to percutaneous coronary intervention from 2006 to 2013 (3.2% from total number of patients). Multivessel involvement was present in 128 patients (76...

The mucoprotein uromodulin is the most abundant protein in mammalian urine and has important roles in ion transport, maintenance of water and electrolyte balance, and clearance of bacteria from the urinary tract. Low urinary uromodulin concentrations have been associated with increased mortality risk. However, measuring uromodulin in urine has several preanalytic drawbacks, and sensitive assays for the detection of uromodulin in blood have become available. In this study, we investigated the association of serum uromodulin concentration with cardiovascular biomarkers and mortality risk in a large cohort of patients referred for coronary angiography...

Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is a competitive inhibitor of the nitric oxide (NO)-synthase and a biomarker of endothelial dysfunction (ED). ED plays an important role in the pathogenesis of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). The aim of our study was to evaluate serum ADMA concentration as a biomarker of an acute renal damage during the follow-up of 90 days after contrast medium (CM) application.Blood samples were obtained from 330 consecutive patients with diabetes mellitus or mild renal impairment immediately before, 24 and 48 hours after the CM application for coronary angiography...

We report a case of coronary-pulmonary artery fistula in a hemodialysis patient treated surgically. A 47-year-old man was admitted with chest pain and exertional dyspnea that progressively worsened over the previous 2 months. He had a history of end-stage renal disease and has been on hemodialysis for 5 years. Coronary angiography and computed tomography revealed coronary-pulmonary artery fistula that originated from both the left anterior descending coronary artery and the right coronary artery. Under cardiopulmonary bypass, we opened the pulmonary artery and closed the fistula...

BACKGROUND: Radial artery is now the most frequent access for coronary angiography and intervention. Despite the common opinion that it is safer than femoral access, it has the potential for serious complications. One of them is upper limb ischemia caused by radial artery thrombosis. CASE REPORT: We are presenting a case of critical hand ischemia after coronary angiography performed through radial access despite existing risk factors, which may be considered as relative contraindications...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (CT) is a syndrome characterized by an acute and transient left ventricular dysfunction, electrocardiographic abnormalities suggestive of acute coronary syndrome, chest pain and/or dyspnea, left ventricular mid-apical segments akinesia and normal coronary angiography. It is mainly observed in postmenopausal women after an intense physical or mental stress. The course is usually favourable but sometimes severe complications occur. The recurrence rate is 2-10%. We present the case of a recurrence of CT in a female, 79 years old, with hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 3 who was admitted to the emergency room for dyspnea and vomiting...

BACKGROUND: The appropriateness of repeat transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) for stable heart failure (HF) is based on timing of the follow-up examination, but this lacks scientific support. We sought the association of routine follow-up TTE on survival and readmission in stable HF. METHODS: Patients with HF were selected from consecutive HF admissions from 2008 to 2012. Groups were divided into: no follow-up TTE; routine <1year with no change in status ("rarely appropriate"), ≥1year follow-up with no change in status ("maybe appropriate") and TTE due to change in clinical status ("appropriate")...

REVIEW
Raveen Chawla, Jeremy Turlington, Pradeep Arora, Ion S Jovin
Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is an acute worsening of renal function after receiving intravascular contrast during a procedure. Some of the predisposing factors include underlying diabetes, chronic kidney disease, congestive heart failure, periprocedural hypotension, anemia, contrast volume, and osmolality of contrast; however, it remains unclear if risk varies for CIN with race and ethnicity. There is evidence in the literature showing the link between race/ethnicity and the discrepancies in the utilization of preventive care services and the resources related to cardiovascular and renal health...

INTRODUCTION: With the broadening indications of ureteroscopy (URS) for complex stones and high-risk patients, more URS is being performed and hence there is an increasing risk of major potentially life-threatening complications. We wanted to define the incidence, predisposing factors, management, and long-term sequelae for post-URS perirenal hematoma (PRH). MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a systematic review of literature according to Cochrane and preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analysis guidelines for all studies reporting on post-URS PRH from 1980 to September 2016...

BACKGROUND: The neutrophil-tolymphocyte ratio (NLR) was found to be a predictor of adverse outcome in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). The ratio may also be a useful marker to predict mortality following valve replacement surgery. METHODS: A total of 932 patients was enrolled retrospectively. Patients were allocated to three tertiles based on their NLR (group 1, NLR ≤1.90; group 2, 1.90 < NLR ≤2.93; group 3, NLR >2.93). RESULTS: Patients in the highest tertile were older (p = 0...

This is a case of a 66-year-old African American male with history of end stage renal disease due to polycystic disease and failed right kidney transplant. He presents with asymptomatic hematuria, and diagnostic angiography was performed which showed incidental anastomotic site pseudoaneurysm. Our patient had an unusual presentation of a pseudoaneurysm. Pseudoaneurysms associated with failed renal transplants are typically detected within weeks after transplantation and along with failure of the transplant...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Multimodal computed tomography (CT) based imaging (MCTI) is widely used in acute ischaemic stroke. It was postulated that the use of MCTI is associated with improved patient outcome without causing harm. METHODS: All patients with an acute ischaemic stroke and CT-based imaging within 24 h from the ASTRAL (Acute Stroke Registry and Analysis of Lausanne) registry were included. Preceding demographic, clinical, biological, radiological and follow-up data were collected...

Renal involvement of systemic vasculitides is an emergency in nephrology. Although it has become very rare, the diagnosis of polyarteritis nodosa must be considered in some patients. A 70-year-old patient, previously healthy, presented with acute renal failure and malignant hypertension and abundant albuminuria. Subcutaneous nodule, orchitis and mononeuritis appeared subsequently. The search for auto-immunity or viral infection was negative. Markers of thrombotic microangiopathy, present initially, resolved after blood pressure control...

BACKGROUND: Major vessels in the diabetic foot are often calcified and inadequate for use as recipient vessels. Thus, a supermicrosurgery technique using small branches or perforators from other collateral vessels with an adequate pulse may be an alternative method. This study evaluated outcome using the supermicrosurgery concept and the risk factors involved. METHODS: Ninety-five cases of diabetic foot reconstruction were reviewed; the average patient age was 57 years; average follow-up was 43...

A 76-year-old woman was hospitalized repeatedly due to unexplained heart failure. On admission, she had hypertensive acute heart failure. Her symptoms disappeared promptly after the initial treatment; however, her systolic blood pressure remained at over 160 mmHg despite her taking three antihypertensive drugs. Closer examination revealed hemodynamically significant right renal artery stenosis and a lack of left kidney function. We performed percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty using CO2 angiography in combination with iodinated contrast agents...
