The incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is higher in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) than in the general population, and the risk of CVD increases with reductions in renal function. However, the incidence of CVD in Japanese patients with CKD has not been sufficiently investigated. To measure this we conducted the Chronic Kidney Disease Japan Cohort (CKD-JAC) Study over four years in 2,966 Japanese patients with CKD to examine the incidence of CVD and all-cause death. These patients had an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 10-59 ml/min/1...

Background The results of studies investigating the effects of hyponatraemic dialysates have been mixed, with some reporting positive effects including reduction in blood pressure and inter-dialytic weight gains, whereas others have not been able to demonstrate any effect. These studies assume that setting a lower dialysate sodium results in the delivery of a hyponatraemic dialysate. We therefore measured delivered sodium to determine reliability. Methods We measured dialysate sodium in 10 BBraun Dialog+(®) and 6 Fresenius 4008H dialysis machines, which had been set up to deliver a sodium of 136 mmol/L, using flame photometry and indirect ion selective electrode (ISE) methods...

Whereas there is strong relationship between high blood pressure and increased overall and cardiovascular mortality for the general population, observational studies in hemodialysis patients have reported a "U" shaped relationship between pre-hemodialysis blood pressure recordings and patient survival. Previous attempts to introduce pre and post-hemodialysis blood pressure targets were associated with an increased frequency of intra-dialytic hypotension, itself an independent risk factor for mortality. Conversely, meta-analyses of trials of antihypertensive medications in hemodialysis patients, reported survival benefit for those prescribed medication...

Chronic congestive heart failure (CHF) and acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) refractory to medical therapy represent therapeutic challenges. In such patients, attempts to reduce pulmonary and systemic congestion frequently produce deterioration of renal function. In studies of patients with chronic severe CHF refractory to medical therapy (including loop diuretics), isolated ultrafiltration was frequently able to relieve congestive symptoms by precise removal of extracellular water and sodium, and in some cases was able to restore responsiveness to loop diuretics...

Inhibition of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 causes both glycosuria and natriuresis, leading to reductions in hyperglycemia, body weight, blood pressure, and proteinuria. The recently published EMPA-REG OUTCOME study demonstrated significant cardiovascular and mortality benefits of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibition with empagliflozin in patients with type 2 diabetes and established cardiovascular disease, and may suggest a broader role for sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibition in patients with heart failure...

COMMENT
Michael Fischbach, Ariane Zaloszyc, Rukshana Shroff
Despite multiple advances in haemodialysis (HD) technology over the years, the morbidity and mortality of HD patients remain unacceptably high. Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death, and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), seen in two-thirds of children on dialysis, is a significant contributor. The importance of volume control is increasingly recognized by nephrologists and now considered to be as important as urea kinetics, both in the day-to-day management and the long-term outcome of dialysis patients...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
