Haemodialysis is an extracorporeal process in which the blood is cleansed via removal of uraemic retention products by a semipermeable membrane. Traditionally, dialysis membranes have been broadly classified on the basis of their composition (cellulosic or noncellulosic) and water permeability (low flux or high flux). However, advances in materials technology and polymer chemistry have led to the development of membranes with specific characteristics and refined properties that mandate a reconsideration of traditional membrane classification systems...

Sepsis is the leading cause of acute kidney injury (AKI) in the intensive care unit (ICU). Septic AKI is a complex and multifactorial process that is incompletely understood. During sepsis, the disruption of the mucus membrane barrier, a shift in intestinal microbial flora, and microbial translocation may lead to systemic inflammation, which further alters host immune and metabolic homeostasis. This altered homeostasis may promote and potentiate the development of AKI. As part of this vicious cycle, when AKI develops, the clearance of inflammatory mediators and metabolic products is decreased...

BACKGROUND: Remote monitoring (RM) supports a healthcare model that enhances patients' self-management. We evaluated the utility of RM in patients undergoing automated peritoneal dialysis (APD). METHODS: We observed 37 -RM-APD patients, 16 incidents, and 21 prevalents switched from traditional APD (T-APD). We observed the number of changes for APD prescription, the frequency of visits, and PD adequacy parameters during 1 year of RM utilization in APD. RESULTS: The APD prescriptions were modified more frequently in RM-APD vs...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important public health problem. Most of the evidence on its costs relates to patients receiving dialysis or kidney transplants, which shows that, in these phases, CKD poses a high burden to payers. Less evidence is available on the costs of the predialytic phase. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to estimate the annual cost of patients with CKD not receiving dialysis treatment, using the Italian healthcare system perspective and a prospective approach...

BACKGROUNDS: Dendritic cells (DCs) are antigen-presenting cells that play a central role in innate and adaptive immune responses; however, the cross talk between cardiac and renal DCs in cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) has not yet been fully elucidated. In this setting, endothelial cells (ECs) also contribute to immune responses. SUMMARY: DC and EC activation and dysfunction have a central role in the pathogenesis of CRS. Regarding immune responses in CRS, it is unknown whether ECs may serve as antigen-presenting cells or act synergistically with DCs to actively participate in innate and adaptive immune responses...

Chinese herbal medicine has been practiced for the prevention, treatment, and cure of diseases for thousands of years. Herbal medicine involves the use of natural compounds, which have relatively complex active ingredients with varying degrees of side effects. Some of these herbal medicines are known to cause nephrotoxicity, which can be overlooked by physicians and patients due to the belief that herbal medications are innocuous. Some of the nephrotoxic components from herbs are aristolochic acids and other plant alkaloids...

The incidence of the multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) is rapidly increasing in intensive care units (ICU). It usually combines with sepsis and is the most frequent cause of death in the ICU patients. The nature of the ICU patients has changed in the last years. It includes a variety of patients with severe cases due to major surgical interventions, trauma, hemodynamic instability, sepsis, and so on but also older people than previous times. All these situations can easily lead to MODS. In the prior years, the only available and efficient therapy was renal replacement therapy (RRT) for treating acute renal failure, but the development of technology also gives us devices to support the other systems...

Renal replacement therapy (RRT) is a form of extracorporeal support for critical patients, especially for those with acute kidney injury. This therapy enables to gain adequate control over the great metabolic and fluids demand when kidneys are not able to do so; this condition is habitually present in patients who are admitted to intensive care units. However, it is also clear that these patients present a higher mortality rate and, in some cases, complications associated with the therapy. Therefore, it is fundamental to optimize and customize different aspects of RRT that range from the ideal timing including the modality and the dose until its suspension or ending...

For continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT), the extracorporeal filter provides solute depuration, fluid removal, and control of electrolyte and acid-base balance in critically ill patients with acute kidney injury (AKI). The membranes comprising CRRT filters are almost exclusively based on hollow fiber designs and, while adapted from the chronic hemodialysis field, have features that are specific to the requirements of CRRT nevertheless. In addition, these devices have evolved through the 40 years of CRRT in response to changes in clinical practice and the desire to extend the solute removal spectrum...

This chapter focuses on the definitions and impact of prescription and delivery of the right dose of treatment in patients on continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT). We define "dose" and the concepts of efficiency, intensity, and efficacy; differentiate their multiple components; and describe the practical application of those concepts to direct patient care. In the article, we emphasize the effects of delivered dose variation on solute control, and list the main factors affecting CRRT dose delivery...

Continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration (CAVH) was proposed in 1977 as an alternative treatment for acute renal failure in patients in whom peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis was clinically or technically precluded. In the mid-1980s, this technique was extended to infants and children. CAVH presented important advantages in the areas of hemodynamic stability, control of circulating volume, and nutritional support. However, there were serious shortcomings such as the need for arterial cannulation and limited solute clearance...

In chronic kidney disease patients on dialysis (CKD-G5D) accurate assessment of glycemic control is vital to improve their outcome and survival. The best glycemic marker for glucose control in these patients is still debated because several clinical and pharmacological factors may affect the ability of the available biomarkers to reflect the patient's glycemic status properly. This review discusses the role of glycated albumin (GA) both as a biomarker for glucose control and as a prognostic factor in CKD-G5D; it also looks at the pros and cons of GA in comparison to the other markers and its usefulness in hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis...

INTRODUCTION: So far, only heparin-based anticoagulation has been proposed during polymyxin-B hemoperfusion. However, postsurgical septic patients can be at high risk of bleeding due to either surgical complications or septic coagulation derangement. Consequently, heparin should not represent in some cases the anticoagulation regimen of choice in this type of patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: We present a case series of four postsurgical septic patients treated with polymyxin-B hemoperfusion using regional citrate anticoagulation...

Arteriovenous fistula cannulation for dialysis treatments in Europe has traditionally been done by metal needles. In -Japan, plastic cannulas have been available for many years and are used in the majority of the dialysis patients. The mechanical structure and the cannulation procedure of the plastic cannulas differ from those of the metal needles. These differences are particularly beneficial for patients with delicate fistulas, tortuous vessels, metal allergies, oligophrenic patients, and also for the safety of the medical staff...

INTRODUCTION: Ultrasound and colorDoppler technique, which is relatively inexpensive, rapid, non-invasive and repeatable is a powerful tool used for early diagnosis of vascular access (VA) complications in hemodialysis patients. To date a standard and widely comprehensible echocolorDoppler (ECD) protocol is not available. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A simple step-by-step protocol based on anatomical and hemodynamic parameters of VA has been developed during a 3-years VA ECD follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) diagnosis is based on a rise in serum creatinine and/or fall in urine output. It has been shown that there are patients that fulfill AKI definition but do not have AKI, and there are also patients with evidence of renal injury who do not meet any criteria for AKI. Recently the innovative and emerging proteomic technology has enabled the identification of novel biomarkers that allow improved risk stratification. METHODS: Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-2 (TIMP-2), insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 7 (IGFBP7) were measured to a cohort of 719 consecutive patients admitted to Intensive Care Unit (ICU)...

BACKGROUND: Hemodynamic instability related to renal replacement therapy (HIRRT) may increase the risk of death and limit renal recovery. Studies in end-stage renal disease populations on maintenance hemodialysis suggest that some renal replacement therapy (RRT)-related interventions (e.g., cool dialysate) may reduce the occurrence of HIRRT, but less is known about interventions to prevent HIRRT in critically ill patients receiving RRT for acute kidney injury (AKI). We sought to evaluate the effectiveness of RRT-related interventions for reducing HIRRT in such patients across RRT modalities...
