INTRODUCTION: Acute kidney injury (AKI) associated with cardiac surgery is a common postoperative complication that increases the morbidity and mortality substantially. However, there is limited information of AKI after cardiac surgery in our institution. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a prospective, observational, and longitudinal analysis of adult patients that underwent to cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonary bypass and aortic cross clamp. Patients with preoperative chronic renal insufficiency that were on dialysis, with AKI detected up to 24 h before the procedure, or that received contrast agents 72 h before surgery were excluded...

BACKGROUND: We have compared the hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis populations of our Center for morbidity and mortality, in a retrospective study of six years of activity. METHODS: We enrolled 125 patients (104 patients/year/million inhabitants), who had been in chronic dialysis from 1992 to 1997: 90 (22-90 years old) initiated in hemodialysis and 35 (27-82 years old) in peritoneal dialysis. RESULTS: We have evaluated survival and morbility, as hospitalization/patient/year in both groups...

A total of 618 patients with end-stage renal disease received kidney transplants between 1980 and September 1996. Twenty eight of them were diabetics. Better results were achieved for type 1 diabetic patients than for type 2 (mortality: 5.9% vs 27.3%; functioning graft: 88.2% vs 72.7%). The morbility was also higher in those patients (infections: 81.8% vs 29.4%; vascular complications: 45.5% vs 17.6%). Actuarial patient and graft survival were lower for type 2 than for non diabetic patients. For type 1 diabetics the results are similar to those for non diabetics...

We analyzed retrospectively the outcome of 169 patients in chronic hemodialysis (CHD), divided into four groups: 1) 24 patients with diabetic nephropathy (age 53.7 +/- 11 years); 2) 19 with polycystic kidney disease (age 55.3 +/- 9 years) 3) 43 patients older than 60 when starting chronic hemodialysis with etiologies different from diabetes and polycystic kidney disease (age 69.2 +/- 5.8 years) and 4) 83 patients younger than 60 with diverse etiologies (age 42.8 +/- 12.4 years). In groups 1, 2 and 3 serum creatinine, arterial hypertension at the beginning, morbility, mortality and its causes were registered...
