PURPOSE: This study was designed to investigate the effects of total parenteral nutrition (PN) using different lipid emulsions in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery. METHODS: Fifty-two patients were randomized to receive soybean oil + medium chain triglycerides (MCT) (group I), soybean oil + olive oil (group II), soybean oil + olive oil + fish oil (group III) as a lipid source. PN was started on postoperative day 1 and patients were maintained on PN for a minimum period of 4 days...

We previously experienced severe clot formation in a polyester-polymer alloy (PEPA) dialyzer and hemodialysis (HD) circuit with nafamostat mesilate (NM) as an anticoagulant. The possibility of NM adsorption to the PEPA membrane was taken into consideration, but there was not enough information. In the present study, we evaluated differences in the adsorption of NM between a PEPA membrane (FDX-120 GW, Nikkiso, Tokyo, Japan) and two different polysulfone membranes (FX-140, Fresenius Medical Care, Tokyo, Japan; NV-15U, Toray Medical, Tokyo, Japan)...

Achieving an adequate dialysis dose is one of the key goals for dialysis treatments. Here we assessed whether patients receiving the current cleared plasma volume (Kt), individualized for body surface area per recommendations, had improved survival and reduced hospitalizations at 2 years of follow-up. Additionally, we assessed whether patients receiving a greater dose gained more benefit. This prospective, observational, multicenter study included 6129 patients in 65 Fresenius Medical Care Spanish facilities...

In this study, Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) hollow fiber hemodialysis membranes were prepared by non-solvent induced phase separation (NIPS) with compound addtive. The compound additive was made with polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) and Poly ethylene glycol (PEG). The results showed that the modified PVDF membrane had better separation performance than virgin PVDF membrane. The UF flux of modified PVDF membrane can reach 684 L·h(-1)·m(-2) and lysozyme (LZM) passage is 72.6% while virgin PVDF membrane is 313 L·h(-1)·m(-2) and 53...

INTRODUCTION: The use of αβ+ T-cell-depleted grafts is a novel approach to prevent graft failure, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), and non-relapse mortality (NRM) in patients undergoing haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. PATIENT AND METHOD: Thirty-four patients with acute leukemia and lacking a match donor were treated with αβ T-cell-depleted allografts from haploidentical family donors. A total of 24 patients had acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and 10 had acute lymphoblastic leukemia...

PURPOSE: To compare outcome and associated complications of ballon- vs. loop-retained devices for radiologically inserted gastrostomy (RIG). METHODS: From 2007 to 2011 233 patients (age 63.7 ± 10.6 years) were referred for a RIG because of pharyngeal stricture Intervention was performed with four different devices: balloon-retained - Freka(®) GastroTube, Fresenius Kabi (n = 121); MIC(®) Gastrostomy Feeding Tube, Kimberly-Clark (n = 34); Russell(®) Gastrostomy Tray, Cook Medical Inc...

Background The results of studies investigating the effects of hyponatraemic dialysates have been mixed, with some reporting positive effects including reduction in blood pressure and inter-dialytic weight gains, whereas others have not been able to demonstrate any effect. These studies assume that setting a lower dialysate sodium results in the delivery of a hyponatraemic dialysate. We therefore measured delivered sodium to determine reliability. Methods We measured dialysate sodium in 10 BBraun Dialog+(®) and 6 Fresenius 4008H dialysis machines, which had been set up to deliver a sodium of 136 mmol/L, using flame photometry and indirect ion selective electrode (ISE) methods...

AIM: To study the relationship between overhydration (OH) in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients and cardiac mortality. METHODS: OH, as measured by body composition monitor (BCM), is associated with increased mortality in dialysis patients. BCM has been used to guide treatment on the assumption that correcting OH will improve cardiac morbidity and mortality although data demonstrating causality that is reversible is limited. We wished to determine if OH in PD patients predicted cardiac mortality, and if there was a correlation between OH and cardiac troponin-T (cTnT) levels...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: A new lipid emulsion enriched in n-3 fatty acid has been reported to prevent hepatic inflammation in patients following major surgery. However, the role of n-3 fatty acid-based parenteral nutrition for postoperative patients with cirrhosis-related liver cancer is unclear. We investigated the safety and efficacy of n-3 fatty acid-based parenteral nutrition for cirrhotic patients with liver cancer followed hepatectomy. METHODS: A prospective randomized controlled clinical trial (Registered under ClinicalTrials...

INTRODUCTION: Extensive weight loss has been docu-mented in intensive care unit (ICU) survivors, primarily as the result of muscle loss, leading to impaired physical function and reduced quality of life. The aim of the EAT-ICU trial is to test the effect of early goal-directed protein-energy nutrition based on measured requirements on short-term clinical outcomes and long-term physical quality of life in ICU patients. METHODS: The EAT-ICU trial is a single-centre, randomised, parallel-group trial with concealed allocation and blinded outcome assessment...

BACKGROUND: Automated blood collection platforms use different technological systems to isolate and collect individual blood components. These unique systems could potentially result in differences in platelet in vivo viability, as measured by the corrected count increment (CCI). STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: This retrospective study evaluated CCI data of platelet transfusions among oncology patients who received multiple unmanipulated apheresis platelets between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2009...

BACKGROUND: Oesophageal adenocarcinoma represents one of the fastest rising cancers in high-income countries. Barrett's oesophagus is the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma. However, only a few patients with Barrett's oesophagus develop adenocarcinoma, which complicates clinical management in the absence of valid predictors. Within an international consortium investigating the genetics of Barrett's oesophagus and oesophageal adenocarcinoma, we aimed to identify novel genetic risk variants for the development of Barrett's oesophagus and oesophageal adenocarcinoma...

BACKGROUND: Increasing evidence shows that body mass may play a role in complications after kidney transplantation and influence graft and patient survival. The aim of this study was to analyze the association between graft function and both the body mass and adipokines (leptin, visfatin, adiponectin) in kidney transplant recipients. METHODS: We studied 183 kidney transplant recipients from the Department of Nephrology, Transplantology and Internal Disease, Medical University of Gdansk...

BACKGROUND: The problem of red blood cell (RBC) shortage occurs because of the expanding demand for blood utilization and the dfficulties in donor recruitment and retention. Resources can be maximized by using current technology to collect two units of RBC from the same donor during a single collection session. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the performance, collection efficiency (CE), production cost, and donor satisfactions of two commercially available blood cell separators (BCS) for double dose red cell (DDRC) collection...

BACKGROUND: Blood salvage systems help to minimize intraoperative transfusion of allogenic blood. So far no data is available on the use of argatroban for anticoagulation of such systems. We conducted an ex-vivo trial to evaluate the effectiveness of three different argatroban doses as compared to heparin and to assess potential residual anticoagulant in the red cell concentrates. METHODS: With ethical approval and individual informed consent, blood of 23 patients with contraindications for use of blood salvage systems during surgery was processed by the Continuous-Auto-Transfusion-System (C...
