PURPOSE: Cardiovascular calcifications (CVC) are present in up to 70% of non-diabetic dialysis patients. Sparse data are available on predictors of very long-term outcomes of such patients. The Belgrade Aachen Study on Calcification in Hemodialysis patients (BASCH study) aimed to study this using a comprehensive CVC assessment. METHODS: We prospectively analyzed 220 hemodialysis patients followed for a mean of 76 months (median 73 months, range 6-160 months). We compared patients deceased from cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and survivors...

BACKGROUND: Regulation of body iron occurs at cellular, tissue, and systemic levels. In healthy individuals, iron absorption and losses are minimal, creating a virtually closed system. In the setting of chronic kidney disease and hemodialysis (HD), increased iron losses, reduced iron absorption, and limited iron availability lead to iron deficiency. Intravenous (IV) iron therapy is frequently prescribed to replace lost iron, but determining an individual's iron balance and stores can be challenging and imprecise, contributing to uncertainty about the long-term safety of IV iron therapy...

INTRODUCTION: Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality among hemodialysis patients. We used an immersion model to evaluate the role of reduced effective circulating volume, and to examine whether facilitated refilling can prevent IDH. METHODS: Ten male hemodialysis patients who had frequent episodes of IDH were randomized to a mid-week "wet" or "dry" hemodialysis session, and subsequently underwent the other session in a crossover manner...

BACKGROUND: Arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) are the preferred form of hemodialysis vascular access, but maturation failures occur frequently, often resulting in prolonged catheter use. We sought to characterize AVF maturation in a national sample of prevalent hemodialysis patients in the United States. STUDY DESIGN: Nonconcurrent observational cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Prevalent hemodialysis patients having had at least 1 new AVF placed during 2013, as identified using Medicare claims data in the US Renal Data System...

Sudden death is one of the more frequent causes of death for hemodialysis patients, but the underlying mechanisms, contribution of arrhythmia, and associations with serum chemistries or the dialysis procedure are incompletely understood. To study this, implantable loop recorders were utilized for continuous cardiac rhythm monitoring to detect clinically significant arrhythmias including sustained ventricular tachycardia, bradycardia, asystole, or symptomatic arrhythmias in hemodialysis patients over six months...

Background: Intractable pruritus in hemodialysis patients can significantly decrease their quality of life and is also associated with poor vital prognosis. Although combined multiple causes of intractable pruritus in these patients have been identified, no existing treatments are proven to be sufficiently effective. We conducted a post-marketing surveillance to follow-up and assess the safety and efficacy of nalfurafine, a selective κ-opioid receptor agonist, for the treatment of intractable pruritus in patients undergoing hemodialysis...

A 35-year-old man presented with severe hypo-osmolar hyponatremia (serum sodium 99 mmol/L), profound nonoliguric renal failure (serum creatinine 1240 μmol/L), and nephrotic range proteinuria. Computed tomography of the abdomen revealed nephromegaly and no obstruction. The patient was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and conventional hemodialysis was initiated. To avoid rapid sodium correction, we prescribed concurrent dialysate flow, a low dialysate sodium concentration, a small surface area dialyzer, and a low blood flow rate...

INTRODUCTION: Hemodialysis patients frequently receive vancomycin for treatment of gram-positive bacterial infections. This drug is most conveniently administered in outpatient dialysis units during the hemodialysis treatment. However, there is a paucity of data on the removal of vancomycin by high-flux polyamide dialyzers. METHODS: This is a prospective crossover study in which seven uninfected chronic hemodialysis patients at three dialysis units received vancomycin 1 gram intravenously over one hour immediately after the dialysis treatment (Phase 1), and vancomycin 1...

Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is usually an autosomal recessive autoinflammatory disease characterized by recurrent attacks of fever and serositis. FMF develops before the age of 20 years in 90% of patients. It has intervals of 1 week to several years between attacks, which leads to renal dysfunction-amyloidosis. We report a case of atypical FMF that developed in a long-term hemodialysis patient. A 65-year-old Japanese female undergoing hemodialysis for 32 years was referred to our hospital with a fever of unknown origin (FUO) following cervical laminoplasty...

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is more frequently observed in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) than in patients without CKD. Initial treatment strategy for AMI includes primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), which requires substantial amount of contrast media. We hypothesized that the clinical outcomes are comparable or worse in patients with AMI and advanced CKD off chronic hemodialysis as compared to patients with AMI and advanced CKD on chronic hemodialysis. The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of patients with AMI and advanced CKD on hemodialysis versus off hemodialysis...

BACKGROUND: There is conflicting evidence of benefit versus harm for warfarin anticoagulation in hemodialysis patients with atrial fibrillation. This equipoise may be explained by suboptimal Time in Therapeutic Range (TTR), which correlates well with thromboembolic and bleeding complications. This study aimed to compare nephrologist-led management of warfarin therapy versus that led by specialized anticoagulation clinic. METHODS: In a retrospective cohort of chronic hemodialysis patients from two institutions (Institution A: Nephrologist-led warfarin management, Institution B: Anticoagulation clinic-led warfarin management), we identified patients with atrial fibrillation who were receiving warfarin for thromboembolic prophylaxis...
