Lauge Østergaard, Emil L Fosbøl, Matthew T Roe
The efficacy of antiplatelet therapy for the secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease after an ischemic event is well established. However, the role for antiplatelet therapy for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease is more complex because of the interplay of efficacy vs safety in individuals without established cardiovascular disease who have a relatively low, but linear trajectory of cardiovascular risk. Several large randomized trials have investigated the efficacy and safety of antiplatelet therapy (primarily aspirin) for patients without established cardiovascular disease...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid hormones have been associated with renal dysfunction in cross-sectional studies. However, prospective studies exploring the effect of thyroid hormones on renal function decline were sparse and got contradictive results. We aimed to prospectively explore the associations of thyroid hormones with incident chronic kidney disease (CKD) and rapid decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in Chinese adults. METHODS: The participants were from a community-based cohort including 2103 individuals aged 40 years or above without CKD at baseline...

Dabigatran is an oral, direct thrombin inhibitor approved by international regulatory agencies for stroke prevention in patients with paroxysmal or persistent non-rheumatic atrial fibrillation (AF). The benefits of dabigatran are widely described, but its use in the geriatric population is not without risk. Chronic kidney disease is a common comorbidity with AF, and thus frequent checks of renal function in elderly patients are recommended. We report a case of dabigatran intoxication in an elderly man affected by heart failure and worsening renal function, who developed acute hepatitis and coma, which was successfully treated with continuous veno-venous hemodiafiltration...

OBJECTIVE: Evidence on cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) in older patients is scarce and conflicting. Nevertheless, CRT in the elderly is of major practical relevance as heart failure prevalence increases with age. METHODS: The German Device Registry (DEVICE) is a nationwide, prospective registry with a longitudinal follow-up design investigating device implantations in 60 German centres. The present analysis of DEVICE focussed on perioperative complication rates and 1-year outcome of patients ≥75years (n=320) compared to younger patients (n=879) receiving a CRT device...

Teriparatide (recombinant 1-34 N-terminal sequence of human parathyroid hormone) for the treatment of osteoporosis should be prescribed with caution in patients with severe stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, in clinical settings, physicians and surgeons who treat such patients have few available options. We sought to further explore the safety and effectiveness of teriparatide for the treatment of osteoporosis in Japanese patients with severe stages of CKD. This was a post hoc analysis of a postmarketing surveillance study that included patients with osteoporosis at high risk of fracture and stage 4 or 5 CKD...

As people age, chronic kidney disease becomes more common, but it rarely leads to end-stage kidney disease. When it does, the choice between dialysis and conservative care can be daunting, as much depends on life expectancy and personal expectations of medical care. Shared decision making implies adequately informing patients about their options, and facilitating deliberation of the available information, such that decisions are tailored to the individual's values and preferences. Accurate estimations of one's risk of progression to end-stage kidney disease and death with or without dialysis are essential for shared decision making to be effective...

Individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD), especially older adults, are at more risk of experiencing cognitive impairment, possibly leading to mild cognitive impairment and/or dementia. Studies report associations between CKD and cognitive impairment; although unclear, there seems to be a graded association between stage of CKD and affected cognitive domains, with executive function being affected earlier in the process than episodic memory and global ability. In CKD, dysexecutive mild cognitive impairment and vascular dementia are also more prominent than other subtypes...

BACKGROUND: Patients either with hyperhomocysteinemia or chronic kidney disease (CKD) have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Little is known regarding whether hyperhomocysteinemia can increase the risk of CKD in a Chinese middle-aged and elderly population. To help clarify this we conducted a prospective cohort study to measure the association of hyperhomocysteinemia with CKD. METHODS: A total of 5917 adults aged 56.4 ± 9.6 years without CKD at baseline were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Hypertension in elderly patients is one of the main problems in cardiovascular diseases. The sympathetic nervous system hyperactivity seen in older patients is a known risk factor for hypertension and other cardiovascular events as well as chronic kidney disease. Renalase, secreted by the kidney and circulated in blood, may regulate the sympathetic tone by catecholamine degradation and in this way has an impact on cardiovascular and renal complications. OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of age on renalase and catecholamine concentration in hypertensive patients, including those on dialyses and its possible relation to blood pressure control and cardiovascular disease...

Arterial hypertension (AH) is a major risk factor for chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, whether AH maintains this role in the development of CKD in elderly patients with aortic stenosis (AS) or whether transaortic gradient influences CKD remains unclear. Consecutive hospitalized patients were prospectively recruited to evaluate the relationship between AS and CKD. In all patients, transthoracic 2-dimensional echocardiography was performed to evaluate AS; renal function was evaluated using the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration formula...

BACKGROUNDS: Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at an increased risk of morbidity and mortality from influenza. However, the immunogenicity of influenza vaccine is known to be attenuated in these patients. In this study, the immunogenicity of MF59-adjuvanted and non-adjuvanted trivalent influenza vaccines was compared in CKD patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD). METHODS: During 2013-2014, 179 CKD patients undergoing HD participated in the study. The patients were randomized into either MF59-adjuvanted vaccine group or non-adjuvanted vaccine group and were immunized with the respective vaccine...

The current categorization of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is based on biomarkers of the glomerular function (estimated glomerular filtration rate, eGFR) and injury (urinary albumin creatinine ratio, UACR) and provides information on the risk of death and of progression of kidney disease. However, there are gaps in knowledge regarding the risk stratification of elderly patients with eGFR 45-60 ml/min/1.73 m2 and of younger patients with higher eGFR but physiological albuminuria. In this regard, most of the kidney cell mass is composed of tubules...

Large cohort studies on whether any association existed between urological interventions for urolithiasis and the development of CKD are lacking. From claims data of the National Health Insurance (NHI) program of Taiwan, we identified 54,433 patients newly diagnosed with urolithiasis during 1998-2010. For each case, four individuals without urolithiasis were randomly selected and frequency matched by age, sex, and diagnosis year. Both groups were followed up until the end of 2010. Incident CKD events were identified by the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) code in the NHI registration database...
