Introduction: Chronic kidney disease is fast becoming a worldwide public health problem due to the increase of hypertension and diabetes mellitus, its main risk factors. In countries like DRC where majority of population are in the low income bracket, very few studies about this disease, usually diagnosed at a very advanced stage have been conducted. As a result of such, cases are not always properly taken care of and managed. Methods: We opted for a descriptive cross-sectional study and it was conducted during the period from July 2014 to July 2015 at CMDC dialysis service...

OBJECTIVE: Kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) are bound to develop cardiovascular disease (CVD), and obesity represents a well-known risk factor for CVD. It has been reported that the metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a frequent finding in KTRs, and MetS could develop even if body mass index (BMI) is only mildly increased. We compared the impact of BMI and MetS on the development of major clinical events (MCEs) in a cohort of 107 KTRs during a follow-up of 63 ± 31 months. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Clinical characteristics were recorded at the time of enrollment and patients were classified on the basis of MCEs development...

Chronic renal failure (CRF) is the most prevalent, worldwide public health problem of the elderly population. The main cause of CRF is a damaged kidney. There are five stages of CRF based on the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and stage 5 (GFR < 15 ml/min/1.73m(2)) is often called an end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In CRF, there is an accumulation of toxins and excess water due to compromised renal function. Dialysis is the preferred way to treat ESRD and remove accumulated toxins from the body. The cardiovascular risk associated with dialysis is 10 to 20 times higher in patients undergoing dialysis than in normal people...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Surgical resection of retroperitoneal sarcomas (RPS) often involves removal of the ipsilateral kidney. We evaluated the long-term post-operative renal function in patients who underwent a nephrectomy as part of their en-bloc resection of RPS. METHODS: Retrospective review of an institutional database identified RPS patients who underwent nephrectomy for curative intent from 1990 to 2014. The primary outcome measured was chronic kidney disease (CKD) calculated by the glomerular filtration rate (GFR)...

Acute glomerulonephritis due to anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) antibody disease is rare, estimated to occur in fewer than one case per million population and accounts for less than 20% of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis. The prevalence among patients evaluated for potential glomerular disease is lower. It accounts for fewer than 3% of all kidney biopsies done with crescentic glomerulonephritis. Cases of anti-GBM disease occurring in a cluster have rarely been reported. All biopsy proven anti-GBM disease cases were collected from January 2015 to March 2015 at our Institute...

We report the case of a patient with long-term history of hypertension, presenting with transient neurological disorders and severe graft failure several years after kidney transplantation. Cause of end-stage renal disease was hypertensive nephrosclerosis. Chronic hemodialysis lasted for 1 year. After transplantation and throughout follow-up, serum creatinine ranged from 200 to 230 μmol/L and maintenance immunosuppression included sirolimus and low-dose steroids. Six years after transplantation, the patient presented with right hip pain radiating to the lower back, transient aphasia, confusion, and hemiparesis...

BACKGROUND: Clinical practice guidelines recommend referral to nephrology when estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) decreases to <30mL/min/1.73m(2); however, evidence for benefits of nephrology care are mixed. STUDY DESIGN: Observational cohort using landmark analysis. SETTINGS & PARTICIPANTS: A national cohort of veterans with advanced chronic kidney disease, defined as an outpatient eGFR≤30mL/min/1.73m(2) for January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010, and a prior eGFR<60mL/min/1...

BACKGROUND: Hypertension (HT) is the second leading cause of kidney failure. In hypertensive patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), blood pressure (BP) control is the most important intervention to minimise progression. For CKD diagnosis, standardised creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) testing by CKD-EPI is recommended. OBJECTIVES: To describe the prevalence and factors associated with a moderate decrease in eGFR (by CKD-EPI) and BP control in subjects with HT...

BACKGROUND: The cumulative amount of iodinated-contrast-medium necessary for EVAR planning, operative procedure and subsequent follow-up is a threat for the onset of end stage renal disease in patients with pre-operative impaired kidney function. Purpose of this study is to describe a mini-invasive approach aimed to minimize the exposure of these patients to iodinated-contrast-medium and the subsequent risk of renal function worsening. METHODS: From 2012 to 2015, all patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) at high-surgical risk and fit for standard endovascular repair (simple aortic-iliac anatomy: proximal and distal neck length ≥15mm, no severe angulation), underwent EVAR through the following "near-zero contrast" approach, if their glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was <30 mL/min: pre-operative planning was performed by non-contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT) and duplex-ultrasound (DU); the origin of renal/hypogastric arteries and aortic bifurcation was evaluated and matched with vertebral bone landmarks and the endograft deployed accordingly, using < 20cc of isotonic iodinate-contrast-medium and contrast-enhancement-DU (CEUS)...

Chronic kidney disease frequently accompanies end-stage heart failure and may result in consideration of simultaneous heart and kidney transplantation (SHKT). In recent years, there has been a significant increase in SHKT. This single-center cohort consisted of 35 patients who underwent SHKT during 1996 to 2015. The aim of this study was to review factors that may predict better long-term outcome after SKHT. Thirteen patients (37%) had delayed graft function (DGF) after transplant (defined as the need for dialysis during the first 7 days after transplant), which was significantly associated with mechanical circulatory support device therapy and high right ventricular systolic pressure before transplant...

Renal failure is a potent risk factor for stroke, which is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The risk of stroke is 5-30 times higher in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), especially on dialysis. Case fatality rates are also higher reaching almost 90%. It is therefore important to understand the factors that predispose to stroke in this vulnerable population to better apply preventive strategies. The heightened risk of stroke in CKD represents the interplay of the vascular co-morbidities that occur with renal impairment and factors specific to renal failure such as malnutrition-inflammation-atherosclerosis complex, the effect of uremic toxins, dialysis techniques, vascular access, and the use of anticoagulants to maintain flow in the extracorporeal circuit...

BACKGROUND: Based on clinical practice guidelines, specific quality indicators are examined to assess the performance of a health care system for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). We examined trends in the proportion of patients with ESRD referred late to nephrology, timing of dialysis initiation in those with chronic kidney disease, and proportion of patients with ESRD treated with pre-emptive kidney transplantation or peritoneal dialysis (PD). Design:: This was a retrospective cohort study...

Anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) disease is a rare small vessel vasculitis that affects the capillary beds of the kidneys and lungs. It is an archetypic autoimmune disease, caused by the development of directly pathogenic autoantibodies targeting a well characterized autoantigen expressed in the basement membranes of these organs, although the inciting events that induce the autoimmune response are not fully understood. The recent confirmation of spatial and temporal clustering of cases suggests that environmental factors, including infection, may trigger disease in genetically susceptible individuals...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury and chronic kidney failure are serious complications after lung transplantation. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is the primary indicator of renal function. Several equations have been proposed to evaluate the estimated GFR (eGFR). We compared three different equations to determine which has the better correlation with the development of acute and chronic renal failure in lung recipients. METHODS: Twenty-two patients with a mean age of 54...

OBJECTIVE: End-stage renal disease and dialysis have been proven to be associated with poor prognoses in diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). However, it has rarely been reported whether and to what extent milder renal insufficiency affects the prognosis. The purpose of this study was to investigate the categorized impact of estimated glomerular filtration (eGFR) on the outcomes of patients with DFU. DESIGN AND METHODS: Three hundred and sixty-six DFU patients hospitalized in a Chinese tertiary hospital were recruited and classified into 4 groups according to the eGFRs as follows: normal (≥90), mildly reduced (60-89), moderately reduced (30-59), and severely reduced (<30)...
