The evaluation of clinical-nutrition status is essential to increase life quality and improve clinical outcomes of patients in hemodialysis (HD). In the absence of a gold standard, the goal of this integrative review was to present and discuss the latest scientific literature on the ability of clinical-nutritional indicators and inflammatory and oxidative stress markers to predict morbidity and mortality in HD. In this context, the lean and fat mass indexes have become good predictors of mortality in HD individuals, regardless of BMI...

Introduction: Patients with end-stage kidney disease have a high risk of 30-day readmission to hospital. These readmissions are financially costly to health care systems and are associated with poor health-related quality of life. The objective of this study was to describe and analyze the frequency, causes, and predictors of 30-day potentially avoidable readmission to hospital in patients on hemodialysis. Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study using the US Renal Data System data from January 1, 2008, to December 31, 2008...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is highly prevalent worldwide. Patients with CKD on hemodialysis are more likely to present behavioral changes and worse quality of life as a result of their routine and complications. They also have higher levels of cytokines. The aim of this study is to assess the relationship between the inflammatory profile and quality of life measured by KDOQL-SF36 in hemodialysis outpatients. Patients older than 21 years of age and on routine hemodialysis for at least 6 months with treatment on a regular weekly basis were included and their anthropometric parameters and serum inflammatory markers were evaluated...

Depression is more common in many medical conditions than among the general population and is associated with an increased risk of mortality. We aimed to determine whether somatic symptoms of depression were more predictive of mortality than affective and cognitive symptoms in hemodialysis patients. We conducted a prospective cohort study in which the survival outcomes of 151 subjects were followed for more than 3 years. Depression was assessed with the Taiwanese Depression Questionnaire (TDQ). Subjects with TDQ scores 19-54 (correlated with clinically significant depressive symptoms) and those with scores 15-18 had higher 3-year mortality rates than the two groups with lower scores (40...

Background: Many patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing hemodialysis (HD) experience depression. Depression influences patient quality of life (QOL), dialysis compliance, and medical comorbidity. We developed and applied a group cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) program including mindfulness meditation for ESRD patients undergoing HD, and measured changes in QOL, mood, anxiety, perceived stress, and biochemical markers. Methods: We conducted group CBT over a 12-week period with seven ESRD patients undergoing HD and suffering from depression...

Background: Current dialysis devices are not able to react when unexpected changes occur during dialysis treatment or to learn about experience for therapy personalization. Furthermore, great efforts are dedicated to develop miniaturized artificial kidneys to achieve a continuous and personalized dialysis therapy, in order to improve the patient's quality of life. These innovative dialysis devices will require a real-time monitoring of equipment alarms, dialysis parameters, and patient-related data to ensure patient safety and to allow instantaneous changes of the dialysis prescription for the assessment of their adequacy...

OBJECTIVE: Arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) remain reliable substitutes for permanent hemodialysis access in scenarios that preclude the placement of native arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs). The majority of AVGs are constructed of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), which is relatively inexpensive and readily available, but synthetic AVGs have poor patency rates. On the other hand, biologic grafts confer an advantage by virtue of their inherent similarity to the native human vasculature...

People who receive peritoneal dialysis (PD) have more freedom than those who are on hemodialysis. However, some PD patients have difficulty adapting to their new environment and thus remain largely homebound. When they work or travel abord, who cannot rely wholly on others, these patients must handle certain life problems alone. It is essential for nursing staff to help PD patients to prepare for overcoming typical inconveniences, improving quality of life, and handling unfamiliar environments. The present study assists patients to arrange domestic and foreign tourism and to participate in various activities...

Background: Intractable pruritus in hemodialysis patients can significantly decrease their quality of life and is also associated with poor vital prognosis. Although combined multiple causes of intractable pruritus in these patients have been identified, no existing treatments are proven to be sufficiently effective. We conducted a post-marketing surveillance to follow-up and assess the safety and efficacy of nalfurafine, a selective κ-opioid receptor agonist, for the treatment of intractable pruritus in patients undergoing hemodialysis...

The purpose of this review is to give dignity at the Incremental Dialysis, which cannot be confused with the term and the therapeutic choice defined as Infrequent Dialysis. The Infrequent Dialysis is defined by each and every hemodialytic therapeutic choice like rhythms below thrice-weekly-hemodialytic treatments. Nonetheless, Infrequent Dialysis is a choice of replacement hemodialysis therapy with pays more special clinical attentions and nutritional monitoring and should also be accompanied by a slightly hypoproteic controlled nutrition...
