"Congenital cyanotic heart disease" and kidney

Cyanotic nephropathy (CN) is often accompanied by congenital cyanotic heart diseases (CCHD). The purpose of this study was to clarify the risk factors and the mechanisms of involved in the development and progression of CN. Thirty patients with CCHD were examined. We analyzed the risk factors for the development of CN on the basis of the clinical and laboratory findings. We also examined ten renal biopsy specimens obtained from patients with CN. Patients with CN showed significantly higher hematocrit levels than those without CN (P=0...

Nephrotic syndrome (NS) and deteriorating renal function are associated with congenital cyanotic heart disease (CCHD). We describe a nine-year-old African male child with CCHD, NS and deteriorating renal function. He presented with two weeks' history of progressive generalized body swelling, oliguria and orthopnea. Oliguria did not improve, and the generalized body swelling did not subside with the administration of diuretics. Dipstick urinalysis remained 3+. He was referred to a facility that offers renal replacement therapy in view of worsening renal status...

BACKGROUND: Nephropathy has long been recognized as a potential complication of congenital cyanotic heart disease (CCHD). The present study was undertaken to investigate some aspects of glomerular function by measuring urinary total protein, microalbumin, and tubular function by assessing urinary alpha-1-microglobulin. The structural integrity of the renal proximal tubules was also studied by measuring urinary activities of the brush-border enzyme leucine-aminopeptidase and the lysosomal enzyme -acetyl-beta-d-glucosaminidase...

We report an unusual case in which infectious endocarditis presented systemic vasculitis and glomerulonephritis as the initial manifestation of the disease. The patient was a 16-year-old girl with congenital cyanotic heart disease who presented with skin purpura, proteinuria, and hematuria. She had hypergammaglobulinemia, cryoglobulinemia, and positive circulating immune complexes. Renal biopsy revealed crescentic glomerulonephritis. Her serum C3 level, which was initially normal, became decreased, and prednisolone and azathioprine were administered with a tentative diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)...

Glomerulomegaly is a histologic finding present in idiopathic pulmonary hypertension, congenital cyanotic heart disease, morbid obesity associated with sleep apnea syndrome, sickle cell disease, and polycythemic states. This study examines the case of a 34-yr-old woman with idiopathic pulmonary artery hypertension who presented with nephrotic-range proteinuria. Kidney biopsy revealed enlarged glomeruli with mesangial-proliferative glomerulonephritis. A review of the pertinent literature and a discussion of the proposed pathophysiologic mechanisms leading to glomerulomegaly are presented...

Patients with congenital cyanotic heart disease may develop a glomerulopathy with proteinuria and impaired renal function. In order to investigate this problem we conducted a study on 27 patients with uncorrected cyanotic heart disease who were between 1 day and 25 years old. As a consequence of hypoxaemia haematocrit was elevated to 57%. Proteinuria was above 150 mg/day/1.73 m2 body surface in 12 patients. Only one of 9 children under 10 years of age had pathological proteinuria presenting as isolated albuminuria...

Glomerulomegaly is associated with congenital cyanotic heart disease and has heretofore been considered a benign condition. We describe a patient with congenital cyanotic heart disease and glomerulomegaly. Deterioration of renal function was demonstrated by comparison of creatinine clearances measured at the time of kidney biopsy and 4 years later. No alteration in kidney histology other than glomerulomegaly and focal glomerulosclerosis at autopsy could account for this deterioration. This is the first description of deterioration of renal function in a patient with glomerulomegaly and congenital cyanotic heart disease...

In 339 patients with various diseases factor XIII (FSF) was determined with the specific amine incorporation method of Lorand et al (1969). Normal values were found in patients with renal (216 patients) or liver diseases (33 patients), in 39 patients with recurrent deep venous thrombosis and in 17 children with congenital cyanotic heart disease. Low levels were found in patients with various conditions, such as sepsis, multiple fractures and combustio complicated by an abnormal proteolytic activity (fibrinolysis and/or activation of the coagulation system with signs of disseminated coagulation)...
