BACKGROUND: Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at risk to progress to kidney failure. We previously developed the Kidney Failure Risk Equation (KFRE) to predict progression to kidney failure in patients referred to nephrologists. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine the ability of the KFRE to discriminate which patients will progress to kidney failure in an unreferred population. DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study was conducted using administrative databases...

Context: Options for chronic treatment of hypoparathyroidism include calcitriol, recombinant human parathyroid hormone, and high-dose vitamin D (D2). D2 is used in a minority of patients because of fear of prolonged hypercalcemia and renal toxicity. There is a paucity of recent data about D2 use in hypoparathyroidism. Objective: Compare renal function, hypercalcemia, and hypocalcemia in patients with hypoparathyroidism treated chronically with either D2 (D2 group) or calcitriol...

Bilateral ureteral duplication is a very rare anomaly, a result of two separate ureteric buds arising from a mesonephric duct. Most of the patients are asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally. Recurrent urinary tract infections, incontinence, haematuria, stone formation and flank pain are common clinical symptoms. Intravenous urography, computed tomography urography, and magnetic resonance imaging are the diagnostic modalities. In this report, a case of bilateral ureteral duplication with stone formation in the lower pole of the right kidney is presented along with its management...

OBJECTIVES: Living-related kidney donation is the main source of renal grafts in Jordan, since kidneys from deceased donors are scarce. Although the Jordanian community accepts the idea of kidney donation to family members, not all potential donors manage to complete the required psychologic and medical evaluations. We review the causes of kidney-donation cancellation and suggest options to increase the number of available organs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of all potential living-related kidney donors at King Hussein Medical Center between January 2008 and June 2016...

The present investigation is focused on exploring the anti-urolithiatic potential of aqueous leaf extract of Tragia involucrata (TIA) and its silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and to quantify the total phenol, flavonoid, terpenoid and sterol contents present in TIA. Quantification results suggested TIA to be a rich source of phenol, flavonoid and terpenoid and less of sterol content. The AgNPs were synthesized by a simple green method using aqueous extract of T. involucrata. The formation of AgNPs was confirmed through UV spectroscopy, particle size analysis, zeta potential, X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy...

BACKGROUND: Escherichia coli is associated with kidney stone disease, as a cause or an effect (secondary or recurrent urinary tract infection, UTI). Defining phenotypic or functional differences between E. coli inside stone nidus (ECS, associated with infection-induced stone) and outside the stone (i.e. from urine) (ECU, represented secondary infection) would be helpful to better understand bacterial involvement in this disease. METHODS: ECS and ECU were isolated from 100 stone formers and subjected to antimicrobial susceptibility test, ERIC-PCR genotyping, determination of biofilm formation, bacterial colony size on agar plate and cell length in broth, 2-DE, nanoLC-MS/MS, protein network analysis, and pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) activity assay...

BACKGROUND: Patients with medullary sponge kidney (MSK) commonly encounter recurrent nephrolithiasis. The existing knowledge on safety of donors with MSK has not been studied. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study at a tertiary referral hospital to assess the outcomes of living kidney donors with MSK. All adults with MSK (N = 26) who underwent nephrectomy as living kidney donors between January 2000 and September 2014 were included. Non-donors with MSK (N = 78) were randomly selected by matching the year of birth and the comorbidity score with a ratio of 1:3 for comparison...

BACKGROUND: Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase deficiency is an inborn error of metabolism that can cause kidney disease from crystalline nephropathy or kidney stones. METHODS: We present three cases from a single centre with varied presentations to illustrate how increasing awareness led to better patient identification. We then undertook a cross-sectional survey of all the patients identified from the Purine Research Laboratory in the UK since 1974. RESULTS: Our index case presented with recurrent nephrolithiasis and was diagnosed on stone analysis, the second case presented with acute kidney injury and the third case was identified from a biopsy undertaken for acute on chronic kidney injury...

Medullary sponge kidney (MSK) disease, a rare kidney malformation featuring recurrent renal stones and nephrocalcinosis, continues to be diagnosed using expensive and time-consuming clinical/instrumental tests (mainly urography). Currently, no molecular diagnostic biomarkers are available. To identify such we employed a proteomic-based research strategy utilizing urine from 22 patients with MSK and 22 patients affected by idiopathic calcium nephrolithiasis (ICN) as controls. Notably, two patients with ICN presented cysts...

REVIEW
William G Robertson
A critical examination of data in the literature and in as yet unpublished laboratory records on the possible role of so-called inhibitors of crystallisation in preventing the formation of calcium-containing kidney stones leads to the following conclusions. So-called inhibitors of spontaneous "self-nucleation" are unlikely to play any role in the initiation of the crystallisation of CaOx or CaP in urine because excessive urinary supersaturation of urine with respect to these salts dominates the onset of "self-nucleation" within the normal time frame of the transit of tubular fluid through the nephron (3-4 min)...
