BACKGROUND: The safety and efficacy of chemotherapy for patients undergoing concomitant hemodialysis have not been fully established and optimal doses of anti-cancer drugs and best timing of hemodialysis remains unclear. Although chemosensitive cancers, such as germ cell tumors, treated with chemotherapy should have sufficient dose intensity maintained to achieve the desired effect, many patients with cancer undergoing hemodialysis might be under-treated because the pharmacokinetics of anti-cancer drugs in such patients remains unknown...

BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) and renal stem/progenitors improve the recovery of acute kidney injury (AKI) mainly through the release of paracrine mediators including the extracellular vesicles (EVs). Several studies have reported the existence of a resident population of MSCs within the glomeruli (Gl-MSCs). However, their contribution towards kidney repair still remains to be elucidated. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether Gl-MSCs and Gl-MSC-EVs promote the recovery of AKI induced by ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) in SCID mice...

Statistical inference for analyzing the results from several independent studies on the same quantity of interest has been investigated frequently in recent decades. Typically, any meta-analytic inference requires that the quantity of interest is available from each study together with an estimate of its variability. The current work is motivated by a meta-analysis on comparing two treatments (thoracoscopic and open) of congenital lung malformations in young children. Quantities of interest include continuous end-points such as length of operation or number of chest tube days...

PURPOSE: To determine the efficacy of cisplatin- or methotrexate-containing acrylic cement for local and systemic antineoplastic drug diffusion. Among the uses of acrylic cement or Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), there is the possibility to employ it as vehicle for drug diffusion. This capability is of interest in the treatment of pathological fractures: The curative effects of the cement (cytotoxicity of the monomer and increased temperature) are added to the antineoplastic effect of the drugs...

BACKGROUND: Radical nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a risk factor for the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD), and the possibility of postoperative deterioration of renal function must be considered before surgery. We investigated the contribution of the aortic calcification index (ACI) to the prediction of deterioration of renal function in patients undergoing radical nephrectomy. METHODS: Between January 1995 and December 2012, we performed 511 consecutive radical nephrectomies for patients with RCC...

Ureteral atresia is a rare disease usually associated with a non-functioning dysplastic kidney. The condition may be unilateral or bilateral; focal, short or long and may involve any part of the ureter. Association with other urinary anomalies is rare. We report the case of a 10-month-old boy with prenatal diagnosis of multicystic right kidney. This suspicion was confirmed after birth by ultrasound and static scintigraphy; a right vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) was recorded at cystography. The boy presented a regular renal function but was hospitalized twice for suspected pyelonephritis between the 8th and the 10th month of life and were recorded occasional mild changes in blood pressure...

INTRODUCTION: Over the last few decades, the prevalence of obesity has increased dramatically. This increase has been mirrored by a rise in the risk of a number of health conditions, including hypertension, diabetes and chronic kidney disease. Although the weight loss following bariatric surgery has been shown to relieve the severity of diabetes and reduce hypertension, the effect on renal function has been less extensively evaluated. OBJECTIVE: The aims of the present study were to: (i) compare the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR, using the MDRD and CKD-EPI equations) and the calculated glomerular filtration rate (using the 24-hour urine volume) with the measured glomerular filtration rate (mGFR) assessed with the plasma iohexol clearance method in severely obese patients, and (ii) evaluate the effect of weight loss on the mGFR 6 months after bariatric surgery...

Endoscopic management is the gold standard for symptomatic low-grade vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in children. Deflux(®) (hyaluronic acid/dextranomer) injection is highly effective and has very few complications. We report on two cases of secondary megaureter after Deflux(®) injections. In the first case, a boy presented with Grade 4 VUR. He received a bilateral Deflux(®) injection with a total of three syringes. The postoperative ultrasound was normal. However, a check-up ultrasound 3 years later showed a significant ureteropyelocalyceal dilatation, with stasis and decreased renal function on scintigraphy, the reason why antireflux surgery (Cohen procedure) was performed...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: A temporary deterioration in renal function during pneumoperitoneum has been reported, but the extent is not known. A new marker for the early detection of renal injury, neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), has been shown to increase in various conditions that affect renal function. This study was conducted to explore detrimental effects of pneumoperitoneum in laparoscopic surgery on renal function by studying levels of urinary NGAL (uNGAL). METHODS: Thirty-two women scheduled to undergo laparoscopic surgery in a gynecology clinic were recruited...

BACKGROUND: The value of cardiac troponin as a risk assessment tool for cardiac disease in the setting of end-stage renal diseases (ESRD) is not equivalent to its value in those with normal renal function. This consideration had not been studied in settings of acute kidney injury (AKI). We aim to explore the diagnostic value of high sensitive troponin T (hsTnT) in the settings of cardiac surgery-induced AKI. METHODS: Single center observational retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Increased concentration of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23) and decreased levels of soluble Klotho (sKL) are linked to negative clinical outcomes among patients with chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury. Therefore, it is reasonable to hypothesize that GFR reduction caused by nephrectomy might alter mineral metabolism and induces adverse consequences. Whether nephrectomy due to urological indications causes derangements in FGF-23 and sKL has not been studied. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of acute GFR decline due to unilateral nephrectomy on bone metabolism, FGF-23 and sKL levels...
