INTRODUCTION: The increment of lipocalin 2, also called neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin, plasmatic levels is associated with cardiometabolic and nefrologic alterations. Nonetheless, there is much controversy about lipocalin 2 plasmatic concentrations among healthy individuals. AIM: The aim of this study was to quantify lipocalin 2 in plasma of healthy men and women and to assess a possible correlation with cardiometabolic risk factors. METHODS: Fifty-three subjects (24 men and 29 women) were included...

Several renal complications may occur during HIV infection, especially in advanced stages related to HIV, to other infectious agents and/or drugs. Little is known about the prevalence of renal diseases that may occur as a complication of or related to HIV infection in asymptomatic patients. This is a single center cross-sectional study of asymptomatic HIV(+) patients referred to a nefrology care service at an Argentine hospital to look for the presence of renal abnormalities. Fifty two consecutive patients were studied between April and November 2008...

INTRODUCTION: We try to establish the chronological evolution that has taken the renal transplant in Spain. Supported on the heuristic one we gather from the first experiences and scientific works published at the beginning of the sixties up to those of the finals of the XXth century in which the procedure is already consolidated. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We check the Spanish bibliography urology, the publications of renal transplant, those of dialysis and the nefrology and all the bibliographical references we have located beside contributing our personal experience...

We report our study of 32 patients diagnosed as hyperparathyroidism due to chronic renal failure (27 secondary forms and 5 tertiary ones), between June 1990 and 2003, that were sent from Nefrology Department for to surgical intervention. The following parameters have been analysed: Age, sex, clinical symptoms, kind of surgery performed, postoperative complications and anatomopathologic result (AP). On 64 nerves exposed, there were no recurrent nerve palsies. 12 patients suffered a symptomatic hypocalcemia (37,5%) although only one was permanent...

BACKGROUND: Periodic intra-access blood flow rate (QA) monitoring is the preferred method for vascular access (VA) surveillance (NKF-K/DOQI, update 2000). OBJECTIVES: 1) To determine the ultrafiltration (UF) method accuracy for early detection of VA stenosis. 2) To evaluate the hemodynamic effect of elective VA intervention (angioplasty or surgery). 3) To define the impact of periodic QA monitoring using the UF method combined by elective VA intervention on VA thrombosis...

OBJECTIVE: The patient population undergoing myocardial revascularization has changed during the last few years. Knowledge of these changes, and of the subsequent influence on morbidity and/or mortality is important, not only for up-dating quality control, but also to support decision-making in financial and economical aspects, and in further research concerning coronary artery surgery. METHODS: Pre-, per- and postoperative data of 3834 primary isolated coronary bypass operations, January 1987 December 1995 were analyzed...

Takeuki and Nishimoto's syndrome has been described as more common though not exclusive in the Japanese people; it occurs in the pediatric or young adult age. The clinical syndrome is most variable (transitory ischemic attacks or circulatory insufficiencies with permanent neurological deficit, as well as subarachnoid hemorrhage). Conversely, the angiographic syndrome is quite typical: I) stenosis of both internal carotid arteries and the anterior part of Willis circle; II) presence of an angiomatous net at the level of the basal ganglia; III) presence of several anastomosis between internal and external carotid arteries...
