REVIEW
David Z Chen, Chelvin C A Sng
Microinvasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) is emerging as a new therapeutic option for glaucoma patients who wish to reduce their medication burden and avoid the postoperative complications of conventional glaucoma filtration surgery. These devices differ in terms of their efficacy and safety profile. Schlemm's canal devices have the most favorable safety profile at the compromise of modest efficacy, while subconjunctival and suprachoroidal devices are potentially more effective at lowering the intraocular pressure at the expense of a higher rate of complications...

Radical nephrectomy is associated with a progressive decline in renal function. Clinical parameters in post-nephrectomy insufficiency were described but the impact of histopathologic vascular findings in the non-neoplastic kidney of nephrectomy specimen, has been poorly studied. Our aim was to evaluate whether the severity of atherosclerosis in non-neoplastic renal tissue predicts the evolution of glomerular filtration rate in patients undergoing total nephrectomy. Thirty-one non-donor patients with unilateral radical nephrectomy were included...

Patients with aldosterone-producing adenomas are treated using surgery, and patients with idiopathic hyperaldosteronism receive medical treatment using mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs). However, the outcomes of surgical and medical treatment for primary aldosteronism (PA) remain unclear. Therefore, we compared the outcomes of surgical and medical treatment for PA and aimed to identify a specific subgroup that might benefit from medical treatment. We identified 269 patients who were treated for PA (unilateral excess: 221 cases; bilateral excess: 48 cases) during 2000-2015 at the Seoul National University Hospital and two other tertiary centers...

BACKGROUND: Hyperparathyroidism is a common complication in chronic kidney disease and might persist in up to 25% of patients after transplantation. In this setting, vitamin D analogues further aggravate persistent hypercalcemia and cinacalcet has not been approved for these patients, some of whom will require parathyroidectomy to correct post-transplantation hyperparathyroidism. OBJECTIVES: In this single-center, retrospective study we aimed to analyze the long-term effect of parathyroidectomy on calcium, phosphorus, and parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels and its effect on allograft function in kidney transplantation patients submitted to parathyroidectomy...

BACKGROUND: Early surgical correction of congenital heart malformations in neonates and small infants may be complicated by acute kidney injury (AKI), which is associated with higher morbidity and mortality rates, especially in patients who require dialysis. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is considered the best measurement of renal function which, in neonates and infants, is highly dependent on heart function. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether measurements of creatinine clearance after open heart surgery in neonates and young infants can serve as an early indicator of surgical success or AKI...

BACKGROUND: Missing preadmission serum creatinine (SCr) values are a common obstacle to assess acute kidney injury (AKI) diagnosis and outcomes. The Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines suggest using a SCr computed from the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) with an estimated glomerular filtration rate of 75 ml/min/1.73 m(2). We aimed to identify the best surrogate method for baseline SCr to assess AKI diagnosis and outcomes. METHODS: We compared the use of 1) first SCr at hospital admission 2) minimal SCr over 2 weeks after intensive care unit admission 3) MDRD computed SCr and 4) Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) computed SCr to assess AKI diagnosis and outcomes...
