AIM: To explore the association between the sociodemographic factors and the needs of patients undergoing hemodialysis in Taiwan. BACKGROUND: Concomitant discomfort, including physical and mental aspects, affects the patients' quality of life and their willingness to undergo hemodialysis. Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a well-known tool to assess different levels of human needs. METHOD: We conducted a small-scale cross-sectional observational study using a structured needs assessment questionnaire on 159 patients from the Taipei Veterans General Hospital hemodialysis unit...

We present a comparison between three left ventricular assist devices (LVADs): HeartWare (HVAD) (HeartWare International Inc., Framingham, MA, USA), HeartMate II (HMII) and HeartMate III (HMIII) (Thoratec Corp., Pleasanton, CA, USA). To our knowledge, no study to date has aimed at placing these three devices in juxtaposition. Between June 2007 and June 2017, 108 consecutive patients received HMII, n = 77 (71.3%), HVAD, n = 14 (13%), or HM III, n = 17 (15.7%), for end-stage heart failure. Mean age was 63...

OBJECTIVE: Acute heart failure (AHF) is one of the most commonly seen clinical cases, with a high rate of re-hospitalization and mortality. AHF can be divided into two categories based on the systolic function of the left ventricle, which are heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFREF) and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF). Pathogenesis and treatment of the two are quite different. In this article we attempted to explore the value of combined use of clinical and laboratory indicators in the differential diagnosis of AHFREF and AHFPEF...

Background and study aims:  Hemodialysis (HD) is considered one of the risk factors for post-endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) bleeding. Therefore, we conducted a retrospective study to evaluate HD as a risk factor for post-ES bleeding in patients with choledocholithiasis. Patients and methods:  We used the post-ES bleeding rate as the main outcome measure. To evaluate the influence of HD on the risk of post-ES bleeding, logistic regression and propensity score analyses were conducted...

Malignant hypertension can cause thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) characterized by hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia. On the other hand, severe hypertension is sometimes associated with hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) or thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). Distinguishing these entities is important because of therapeutic implications. Plasmapheresis should be initiated as soon as possible if we are dealing with TTP. We describe the case of a 30-year-old man referred to our hospital with malignant hypertension, severe renal failure and TMA: haemoglobin=9g/dL, total bilirubin=0...

BACKGROUND: In chronic hemodialysis patients with high risk of bleeding, optimal anticoagulation of the extracorporeal circuit is challenging. Heparin-free hemodialysis (HD) with heparin-coated AN69ST dialyzer is now considered as a good option and recommended by experts. Predilutional hemodiafiltration (HDF) may represent also a feasible alternative but has been poorly investigated. In this study, our aim was to evaluate the performance of on-line automated predilution heparin-free HDF as compared to conventional heparin-free HD with a heparin-coated membrane...

Serum indoxyl sulfate (IS; a uremic toxin) levels, which are significantly higher in patients with chronic kidney disease, including those undergoing hemodialysis, than in the robust, are associated with both cardiovascular disease (CVD) and CVD-related mortality. Furthermore, coronary artery calcium (CAC) is an independent predictor of cardiovascular events in patients undergoing hemodialysis. This study aimed to interpret the association between serum IS levels and coronary plaque burden (CPB) or CAC.A total of 30 consecutive patients on hemodialysis, who underwent 320-row coronary multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) angiography for suspected coronary artery disease, were enrolled in this prospective study...

Anemia is an inevitable complication of hemodialysis, and the primary cause is erythropoietin deficiency. After diagnosis, treatment begins with an erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA). However, some patients remain anemic even after receiving this medication. This study aimed to investigate the factors associated with resistance to recombinant human erythropoietin therapy with epoetin alfa (αEPO). We performed a prospective, longitudinal study of hemodialysis patients receiving treatment with αEPO at our reference hospital from July 2015 to June 2016...

In the 2014 - 2015 season, most influenza infections were due to A (H3N2) viruses. More than two-thirds of circulating A (H3N2) viruses are antigenically and genetically different (drifted) from the A (H3N2) vaccine component of 2014 - 2015 northern and southern Hemisphere seasonal influenza vaccines. The purpose of this paper is to report a case of seasonal influenza A non-H1N1 infection that occurred in June 2015 in an adult cystic fibrosis patient with severe lung disease previously vaccinated with the anti-flu trivalent vaccine...

Hydralazine is a direct-acting vasodilator, which has been used in treatment for hypertension (HTN) since the 1950s. While it is well known to cause drug-induced lupus (DIL), recent reports are indicating the emergence of the drug-induced anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) associated vasculitis (DIV). Herein, we describe two patients (aged 57 and 87 years) who presented with severe acute kidney injury (AKI), proteinuria, and hematuria. Both were receiving hydralazine for the treatment of hypertension...

A 69-year-old man was under maintenance dialysis due to diabetic renal failure. He had a drop in blood pressure during dialysis, developed hematemesis, and was transported to our hospital. Emergency upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed diffuse erosion, mucosal sloughing, and edematous mucosa in the upper body of the stomach to the posterior wall of the antrum and to the greater curvature, which were considered to be an ischemic change. His underlying diseases included diabetic renal failure, chronic arteriosclerosis obliterans, cerebral infarction, internal carotid artery stenosis, hypertension, and myocardial infarction...

While many patients have substantial residual kidney function (RKF) when initiating hemodialysis (HD), most patients with end stage renal disease in the United States are initiated on 3-times per week conventional HD regimen, with little regard to RKF or patient preference. RKF is associated with many benefits including survival, volume control, solute clearance, and reduced inflammation. Several strategies have been recommended to preserve RKF after HD initiation, including an incremental approach to HD initiation...

BACKGROUND: Antiplatelet therapy (APT) is often used on anecdotal grounds to improve vascular access patency. The aim of this study was to assess the role of APT in hemodialysis (HD) patients undergoing arteriovenous fistula (AVF) or graft (AVG) placement. METHODS: All patients in a large HD vascular qualitative initiative database (2011-2017) were included and divided into no antiplatelet therapy (no-APT) vs. any APT [aspirin (ASA) or P2Y12 inhibitors (PI)]. Multivariate [logistic (MLR) and Cox (MCR) regression] analyses were used as appropriate...
