The administration of l-arginine hydrochloride has been used for testing pituitary secretion in humans, and as an experimental model for induction of acute pancreatitis in rats and mice. Whereas in the first case, the administration of the amino acid is associated with hiperkalemia, in the model of acute pancreatitis no data are available on possible changes in potassium homeostasis. The present study shows that the acute administration to mice of l-arginine hydrochloride or other cationic amino acids almost duplicate plasma potassium levels...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes in serum electrolytes during Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and to evaluate the degree of correlation of hyponatremia and the factors that affect the incidence of TURP syndrome and to show the impact of the duration of the procedure on the severity of hyponatremia due to absorption of irrigation fluid in the systemic circulation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study examined 60 male patients planned for elective TURP...

Hyperkalemia is a common and potentially lethal clinical problem. It may be caused by several drugs, especially those which target the renin-angiotensin--aldosterone system, inability of kidney to excrete potassium, a shift of these ions into the extracellular fluid, or a combination of those mechanisms. It can be also spurious, caused by hemolysis after blood drawing. In the article the conditions associated with hyperkalemia, its diagnosis and the management are reviewed.

INTRODUCTION: The therapy of cardiovascular diseases has improved rapidly over the past 20 years. The most commonly used medications in cardiac patients are drugs affecting potassium homeostasis in the kidneys or the gastrointestinal tract, particularly inhibitors of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone (RAA) axis. They all can lead to hyperkalemia. This disorder may cause severe damage to the muscles and both the nervous and cardiovascular systems. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence and clinical course of moderate and severe iatrogenic hiperkalemia in patients hospitalized for cardiovascular disease...

UNLABELLED: An important number of Hospital admissions (HA) occurs through Hospital Emergency Departments (HED). This is a indicator of quality and have to be lower than 50%. However there are almost no data available on the causes of emergency consultation by outpatient hemodialysis patients (HD). For this reason, we prospectively examined a population of 83 outpatient HD patients dialyzed in a peripheral unit under the surveillance of a University Hospital. OBJECTIVES: 1) To know the diagnosis of HED and days of hospitalization for which HD patients came to the HED in 1998...

20-years old man was admitted to the hospital because of a few paroxysmal muscle paralysis episodes with pronounced periodic hiperkalemia (maximal 9.8 mmol/l). The first episode was preceded by a very hard physical effort. Primary adrenal insufficiency was recognised on the basis of clinical, humoral and biochemical examinations. There was elevated ACTH and a very low serum level of cortisol and aldosterone. There was slight metabolic acidosis and hiponatremia. The patient was treated with hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone acetate (Cortineff) with positive result...
