Loss of lean body mass is a relevant component of the cachexia, or protein energy wasting (PEW), syndrome. Reduced muscle mass seems to be the most solid criterion for the presence of cachexia/PEW in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and those with greater muscle mass loss have a higher risk of death. Children with CKD have many risk factors for lean mass and muscle wasting, including poor appetite, inflammation, growth hormone resistance, and metabolic acidosis. Mortality risks in patients with CKD increases as body mass index (BMI) and weight decreases...

This study examined roles and experiences of fathers of children with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Based on interpretive description, semistructured interviews were conducted with 22 fathers of children receiving a range of treatments (transplant, peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, and CKD not requiring renal replacement therapy). Fathers described various experiences and means of adjusting to shifts associated with pediatric CKD. These included loss of personal control, a sense of personal isolation, and a stance of remaining strong amidst personal suffering...

AIMS: Many of the secondary effects of high levels of molybdenum (Mo) overlap with symptoms commonly seen in pediatric patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We measured plasma Mo levels and examined the relationship between Mo levels and kidney function. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was carried out at the London Health Sciences Centre in London, Ontario, Canada with 36 children and adolescents 4 - 18 years of age with CKD. There were 1 - 6 trace element measurements (Mo and copper (Cu)) per patient...

OBJECTIVES: Renal manifestations are the second most significant cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), and include renal cysts, angiomyolipomas, fat-poor lesions, and malignant tumors. These lesions begin in childhood and often lead to chronic kidney disease (CKD). Little is known on the incidence of early modifiable risk factors of CKD, such as proteinuria and hypertension, or subtle decreases in glomerular filtration rate that correspond to the early stages of CKD in children with TSC...

BACKGROUND: There is inadequate power to perform a valid clinical trial in pediatric heart transplantation (HT) using a conventional end-point, because the disease is rare and hard end-points, such as death or graft loss, are infrequent. We sought to develop and validate a surrogate end-point involving the cumulative burden of post-transplant complications to predict death/graft loss to power a randomized clinical trial of maintenance immunosuppression in pediatric HT. METHODS: Pediatric Heart Transplant Study (PHTS) data were used to identify all children who underwent an isolated orthotopic HT between 2005 and 2014 who survived to 6 months post-HT...

Mark R Hanudel, Isidro B Salusky
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In this paper, we review the pathogenesis and treatment of chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD), especially as it relates to pediatric CKD patients. RECENT FINDINGS: Disordered regulation of bone and mineral metabolism in CKD may result in fractures, skeletal deformities, and poor growth, which is especially relevant for pediatric CKD patients. Moreover, CKD-MBD may result in extra-skeletal calcification and cardiovascular morbidity...

EDITORIAL
Michael Freundlich, Carolyn L Abitbol
The complex pathophysiology of progressive chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the development of mineral and bone disorder, abbreviated as CKD-MBD, is of vital importance to a pediatric patient. Paricalcitol, the 19 nor-1,25(OH)2D2 analogue was shown to be effective and safe in the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) in adults almost two decades ago. It also significantly improved survival in dialysis patients compared to the standard calcitriol. The successful treatment of CKD-MBD in children is essential if they are to grow and survive into adulthood...

Pediatric acute kidney injury is a condition that is underdiagnosed among children seen in the emergency department, and it has been associated with significant morbidity and mortality, including increased risk for chronic kidney disease. The most common etiologies in pediatric patients are now known to be due to hypovolemia, sepsis, shock, and cardiac dysfunction. This issue compares 3 classification systems for the diagnosis and staging of acute kidney injury and reviews the etiologies that lead to kidney injury in children...

BACKGROUND: Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) are the most prevalent etiology of pediatric chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, no robust mass screening methods have been developed to detect patients with CAKUT, making early intervention to prevent progressive renal failure challenging. METHODS: We applied tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) to measure the creatinine (Cr) value from dried blood spot (DBS) analysis, which has been used for newborn mass screening...

Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) is a measure of arterial stiffness associated with cardiovascular events in the general population and in adults with chronic kidney disease. However, few data exist regarding cfPWV in children with chronic kidney disease. We compared observed cfPWV assessed via applanation tonometry in children enrolled in the CKiD cohort study (Chronic Kidney Disease in Children) to normative data in healthy children and examined risk factors associated with elevated cfPWV. cfPWV Z score for height/gender and age/gender was calculated from and compared with published pediatric norms...

OBJECTIVE: There are few reports describing sleep disturbance (SD) in children on automated peritoneal dialysis (APD), and they are mostly based on the application of questionnaires. As far as we know, only two studies used polysomnography (PSG), the gold standard for the diagnosis of SD. This is the first study assessing SD in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on APD in our country. METHODS: This was an observational and descriptive study. Children up to 18 years of age who had undergone APD for a minimum of three months were considered eligible...
