People are living longer. On the whole, they have healthier lives and many of the problems previously seen at a younger age now appear in their later years. Kidneys, like other organs, age, and kidney disease in the aged is a prime example. In the United Kingdom, as in other developed countries, the prevalence of end stage kidney disease is highest in the 70- to 79-year-old age group. There are many older people who require renal replacement and are now considered for dialysis. While older patients with end-stage renal disease invariably aspire for a better quality of life, this needs a specialized approach and management...

Due to a national theoretical training provided to all resident for many years and the ongoing discussions to change the organization of the resident training of specialized study diploma (SSD) of nephrology, a survey was done to assess the perception of skills acquired in the management of different clinical situations in terms of knowledge, expertise and attitudes. The expected results are intended to identify new training procedures for future nephrologists in France. The study was performed in 112 resident from 3rd and 4th year of nephrology resident training attending an educational seminar of the University College of Nephrology Teachers in May 2014...

INTRODUCTION: Older adults constitute the largest group of patients on dialysis in most parts of the world. Management of advanced renal disease in the older adult is complex; treatment outcomes and prognosis can be markedly different from younger patients. Clinical teams caring for such patients are often called on to provide information regarding prognosis and outcomes with treatment-particularly, the comparison between having dialysis treatment versus not having dialysis. These discussions can be difficult for clinicians because they have to contend with incomplete or nascent data regarding prognosis and outcomes in this age group...

The joint Society of Nephrology in Germany, Switzerland and Austria was founded on April 10th, 1961 in Wiesbaden. Board members were Hans Sarre, Kurt Kramer, Klaus Rother, Francois Reubi, Bruno Watschinger, Wolfgang Dutz, Ernst Wollheim and Karl Ullrich. The mission of the society was an intensive interaction between basic science of the kidney (anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, biochemistry and molecular biology) and clinical research in nephrology and hypertension. Every year scientific symposia took place in different venues in one of the three countries, except in the years between 1963-1987, when the congresses of the International Society of Nephrology took place...

UNLABELLED: Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) allows the exclusion of the dilated aneurismal segment of the aorta from the systematic circulation. The procedure requires, however, that the endograft extends to the healthy parts of the aorta above and below the aneurysm, yet the neck of a juxtarenal aortic aneurysm (JRA) is too short for a standard endovascular repair. Fenestrated endovascular aortic repair (f-EVAR) provides a solution to overcome this problem by enabling the continuation of blood flow to the renal and visceral arteries through holes or 'fenestrations' in the graft...

The collection of papers published in this issue of Seminars in Dialysis describes our approach to Pharmatech, which is the integration of services, medical devices, and pharmacologic agents, into specific prescription processes. Pharmatech is developed to systematically facilitate an individual's prescription according to each patient's specific needs. This includes evidence-based algorithms for control, anemia management and isonatremic dialysis, devices to deliver precise doses of injectable drugs, and future developments to simplify loading new applications into the system...

Transplantation provides the best outcomes and quality of life for people with end-stage renal disease and therefore offers the optimum treatment of choice. Preemptive living donor (LD) transplantation is an increasingly preferable alternative to dialysis as transplantation outcomes indicate lower morbidity and mortality rates and greater graft and patient survival rates compared to those who are transplanted after dialysis has commenced. Despite nursing and medical teams giving information to patients regarding transplantation and living donation, the number of people coming forward for preemptive transplant work-up remained limited...

BACKGROUND: Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are at high risk of complications from influenza, but many dialysis centers report <50% influenza immunization coverage. STUDY DESIGN: A group-randomized evaluation of a multicomponent intervention to increase influenza vaccination rates in poorly performing dialysis centers in ESRD Networks 6, 11, and 15. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Facilities with the lowest immunization percentages in 2006-2007 were selected from each network and randomly assigned to a standard (n = 39) or intensive intervention (n = 38)...

Pediatric nephrologists and critical care physicians are faced with a heterogeneous patient population with varied epidemiology caring for children with acute kidney injury or other diseases that may require renal replacement therapy provision. We have composed 4 detailed case scenarios to highlight the challenges and interdisciplinary approach required for optimal care provision to children, and that serve to direct the different articles contained in this special issue of Seminars of Nephrology devoted to acute kidney injury in children...

After successful seminars of dialysis nurses from the Clinic of Internal Medicine in Plzen in 1974, 1975 and 1976 the Board of the Czechoslovak Society of Nephrology entrusted the Dialysis Centre from the Clinic to organise national conferences for dialysis staff. The first conference of dialysis staff took place in 1978 in the hotel Solidarita at Spicák. Following conferences were taking place in the manor Zinkovy near Plzen till 1989. To establish independent dialysis conferences was necessary because of a rich content of those conferences and an effort not to limit traditional nephrology at nephrology congresses...

Despite high patient comorbid factors, our Renal Care [table: see text] Group program was able to totally eliminate placement of AV grafts and to use only fistulae with an acceptable rate of catheter use--all within four years' time. This demonstrated the importance and value of a multidisciplinary vascular access team. Organization was the key element. All the team members were already in place prior to 1996, but they were not focused on vascular access and lacked education in this area. With the nephrologist not trained in fistula creation and not involved in that process, the absence of leadership led to a high number of dialysis grafts and catheters and frequent thrombotic and infectious complications...

In an earlier article in Seminars in Dialysis (9:276-281, 1996), the author described the invention of clinical hemodialysis for acute renal failure and its initially equivocal reception by the emerging specialty of nephrology in the United States. A similar story of blunted enthusiasm played out following the invention of the Quinton-Scribner shunt (whose idea "came in the night"), which allowed maintenance treatment for chronic renal failure. Few centers at first could match Belding Scribner's early successes, and some physiology-oriented university nephrologists envisioned how routine dialysis might swamp other activities...

This study's objective was to evaluate the peritoneal dialysis and mannequin simulator models for the hands-on portion of a 4-h focused abdominal sonography for trauma (FAST) course. After an introductory lecture about trauma sonography and practice on normal models, trainees were assigned randomly to two groups. They practiced FAST on one of the two simulator models. After the didactic and hands-on portions of the seminar, FAST interpretation testing revealed mean scores of 82% and 78% for the peritoneal dialysis and mannequin simulator groups, respectively (p = 0...

This was the first Korean-Polish seminar on renal replacement therapies which provided a survey of current research being carried out in both countries, delivered by leading experts in this field. The topics included malnutrition in uremia, biocompatibility, risk factors and complications in renal replacement therapy, diabetic nephropathy, new solutions for peritoneal dialysis, and peritoneal transport. The organizers strove to select the topics which are currently of interest to researchers from both countries with the purpose to compare results and stimulate discussion concerning possible collaboration in the future...
