A scoring system to predict renal outcome in IgA nephropathy: from a nationwide prospective study. (1/22)

BACKGROUND: Immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy is the most common form of glomerulonephritis in the world, and a substantial number of patients develop end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Although there are several prognostic indicators, it remains difficult to predict the renal outcome in individual patients. METHODS: A prospective cohort study was conducted in 97 clinical units in Japan from 1995 to 2002. We analysed the data from 2269 patients using proportional hazards models in order to determine the predictors of ESRD in IgA nephropathy and to develop a scoring system to estimate ESRD risk. RESULTS: During the follow-up (median, 77 months), 207 patients developed ESRD. Systolic hypertension, proteinuria, hypoproteinaemia, azotaemia and a high histological grade at initial renal biopsy were independently associated with the risk of ESRD. Mild haematuria predisposed patients to ESRD more than severe haematuria. A scoring system was developed to estimate the 7-year ESRD risk from eight clinical and pathological variables. Actually, this prognostic score accurately classified patients by risk: patients with estimates of 0.0-0.9, 1.0-4.9, 5.0-19.9, 20.0-49.9, and 50.0-100.0% had a 0.2, 2.4, 12.2, 40.2 and 80.8% of ESRD incidence over 7 years, respectively. The corresponding area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was 0.939 [95% confidence interval (CI), 0.921-0.958]. This score was verified in repetitions of the derivation-validation technique. CONCLUSIONS: Although the quality of some data collected by the mail survey is limited and the influence of therapy could not be considered, this scoring system will serve as a useful prognostic tool for IgA nephropathy in clinical practice.  (+info)

Clinical research on navel application of Shehuang Paste combined with Chinese herbal colon dialysis in treatment of refractory cirrhotic ascites complicated with azotemia. (2/22)

AIM: To explore the efficacy and mechanism of a novel therapeutic method of traditional Chinese medicine in patients with refractory cirrhotic ascites complicated with azotemia. METHODS: Seventy-five cases of refractory cirrhotic ascites complicated with azotemia were randomly divided into 3 groups: comprehensive treatment (n = 29), simple treatment (n = 24), and control (n = 22). The basic treatment methods were the same in all groups, including liver protecting medicines, diuretics and supportive drugs. The control group underwent only the basic treatment. Shehuang Paste (SHP) was applied to the navels of the two treatment groups once a day for 30 d. Colon dialysis with Chinese herbs was administered to the comprehensive treatment group once every two days. Before and after treatment, we measured abdominal circumference, BUN, Cr, serum Na+, urine Na+/K+, liver function, endotoxin content, NO, and ET-1. Color Doppler ultrasonography was conducted to measure the portal vein blood flow. RESULTS: The total effective rate for ascites was 72.4% in the comprehensive treatment group, 45.8% in the simple treatment, contrasting with 18.2% in the controls. Between the two treatment groups and the controls, there were significant differences in the effective rates (P < 0.01, and P < 0.05). There was also a significant difference (P < 0.05) between the two treatment groups. Measurements of Cr and BUN showed higher values for the treatment groups, with the comprehensive better than the simple group (P < 0.05). Sera Na, urine Na/K were different, P < 0.01 between pre- and post-treatment in the comprehensive group, and P < 0.05 in the simple group. The treatment groups' endotoxin content was also significantly reduced (P < 0.01, and P < 0.05), with the comprehensive group better than the simple group (P < 0.05). Portal vein blood flow and NO content significantly reduced (P < 0.05), as did ET-1 content (P < 0.01). There were no significant changes in the control group (P > 0.05). The comprehensive treatment group's pre- and post-treatment portal vein and splenic vein blood flows showed a positive correlation to NO, ET-1 and endotoxin contents. CONCLUSION: When treating refractory cirrhotic ascites complicated with azotemia, Shehuang Paste combined with Chinese herbal dialysis is better than Shehuang Paste alone for ascites resolution, azotemia, and endotoxin elimination. However, both methods on their own were also effective for reducing portal and splenic vein blood flow, and lowering the contents of NO, ET-1 in the two treatment groups.  (+info)

A preliminary report of brain edema in patients with uremia at first hemodialysis: evaluation by diffusion-weighted MR imaging. (3/22)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The dynamics of brain-water content associated with hemodialysis in patients with severe azotemia remains obscure. To investigate whether either interstitial or cytotoxic edema is responsible for dialysis disequilibrium syndrome (DDS), we used diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DWI) to measure the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), which is sensitive for detecting tissue water dynamics. METHODS: Eight consecutive patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) and blood urea nitrogen level of more than 100 mg/dL (160.9 +/- 53.1 mg/dL) were recruited. Conventional MR images, DWI, and clinical manifestations were obtained before and after the 1st hemodialysis. The ADC values were determined for regions of normal-appearing gray and white matter and for regions of hyperintensity of white matter on T2-weighted MR imaging. RESULTS: Foci of bright areas of white matter were found in all patients on T2-weighted images. The ADC values of the patients with ESRD, in white matter and gray matter before and after hemodialysis, were greater than those of the healthy controls (P < .005). Regarding the impact of hemodialysis, the ADC of frontal lobe white matter increased significantly after hemodialysis (1.09 +/- 0.11 versus 1.03 +/- 0.11, P = .036). We did not find the specific area of brain edema reported in posterior leukoencephalopathy and the osmotic demyelination syndrome. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that severe azotemia in end stage renal disease leads to interstitial brain edema reflected as increased ADC, and the further increased ADC reflects that edema associated with 1st hemodialysis is interstitial rather than cytotoxic in nature.  (+info)

Carbon dioxide digital subtraction angiography-assisted endovascular aortic aneurysm repair in the azotemic patient. (4/22)

OBJECTIVE: This report analyzes the safety and efficacy of carbon dioxide digital subtraction angiography (CO(2)-DSA) for EVAR in a group of patients with renal insufficiency compared with a concurrent group of patients with normal renal function undergoing EVAR with iodinated contrast angiography (ICA). METHODS: Between 2003 and 2005, 100 consecutive patients who underwent EVAR using ICA, CO(2)-DSA, or both were retrospectively reviewed, and preoperative, intraoperative, postoperative, and follow-up variables were collected. Patients were divided into two groups depending on renal function and contrast used. Group I comprised patients with normal renal function in whom ICA was used exclusively, and group II patients had a serum creatinine >or=1.5 mg/dL, and CO(2)-DSA was used preferentially and supplemented with ICA, when necessary. The two groups were compared for the outcomes of successful graft placement, renal function, endoleak type, and frequency, and the need for graft revision. Comparisons were made using chi(2) analysis, Student t test, and the Fisher exact test. RESULTS: A total of 84 EVARs were performed in group I and 16 in group II. Patient demographics and risk factors were similar between groups with the exception of serum creatinine, which was significantly increased in group II (1.8 mg/dL vs 1.0 mg/dL P < .0005). All 100 endografts were successfully implanted. Patients in group II had longer fluoroscopy times, longer operative times, and increased radiation exposure, and 13 of 16 patients required supplemental ICA. Mean iodinated contrast use was 27 mL for group II vs 148 mL in group I (P < .0005). Mean postoperative serum creatinine was unchanged from baseline, and 30-day morbidity was similar for both groups. No patient required dialysis. No patients died. Perioperatively, and at 1 and 6 months, the endoleak type and incidence and need for endograft revision was no different between groups. CONCLUSIONS: CO(2)-DSA is safe, can be used to guide EVAR, and provides outcomes similar to ICA-guided EVAR. CO2-DSA protects renal function in the azotemic patient by lessening the need for iodinated contrast and associated nephrotoxicity, but with the tradeoff of longer fluoroscopy and operating room times and increased radiation exposure.  (+info)

Timing of initiation of dialysis in critically ill patients with acute kidney injury. (5/22)

Among critically ill patients, acute kidney injury (AKI) is a relatively common complication that is associated with an increased risk for death and other complications. To date, no treatment has been developed to prevent or attenuate established AKI. Dialysis often is required, but the optimal timing of initiation of dialysis is unknown. Data from the Program to Improve Care in Acute Renal Disease (PICARD), a multicenter observational study of AKI, were analyzed. Among 243 patients who did not have chronic kidney disease and who required dialysis for severe AKI, we examined the risk for death within 60 d from the diagnosis of AKI by the blood urea nitrogen (BUN) concentration at the start of dialysis (BUN < or = 76 mg/dl in the low degree of azotemia group [n = 122] versus BUN > 76 mg/dl in the high degree of azotemia group [n = 121]). Standard Kaplan-Meier product limit estimates, proportional hazards (Cox) regression methods, and a propensity score approach were used to account for selection effects. Crude survival rates were slightly lower for patients who started dialysis at higher BUN concentrations, despite a lesser burden of organ system failure. Adjusted for age, hepatic failure, sepsis, thrombocytopenia, and serum creatinine and stratified by site and initial dialysis modality, the relative risk for death that was associated with initiation of dialysis at a higher BUN was 1.85 (95% confidence interval 1.16 to 2.96). Further adjustment for the propensity score did not materially alter the association (relative risk 1.97; 95% confidence interval 1.21 to 3.20). Among critically ill patients with AKI, initiation of dialysis at higher BUN concentrations was associated with an increased risk for death. Although the results could reflect residual confounding by severity of illness, they provide a rationale for prospective testing of alternative dialysis initiation strategies in critically ill patients with severe AKI.  (+info)

Sensitivity and specificity of a single emergency department measurement of urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin for diagnosing acute kidney injury. (6/22)

BACKGROUND: A single serum creatinine measurement cannot distinguish acute kidney injury from chronic kidney disease or prerenal azotemia. OBJECTIVE: To test the sensitivity and specificity of a single measurement of urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and other urinary proteins to detect acute kidney injury in a spectrum of patients. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: Emergency department of Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York. PARTICIPANTS: 635 patients admitted to the hospital with acute kidney injury, prerenal azotemia, chronic kidney disease, or normal kidney function. MEASUREMENTS: Diagnosis of acute kidney injury was based on the RIFLE (risk, injury, failure, loss, and end-stage) criteria and assigned by researchers who were blinded to experimental measurements. Urinary NGAL was measured by immunoblot, N-acetyl-beta-d-glucosaminidase (NAG) by enzyme measurement, alpha1-microglobulin and alpha(1)-acid glycoprotein by immunonephelometry, and serum creatinine by Jaffe kinetic reaction. Experimental measurements were not available to treating physicians. RESULTS: Patients with acute kidney injury had a significantly elevated mean urinary NGAL level compared with the other kidney function groups (416 microg/g creatinine [SD, 387]; P = 0.001). At a cutoff value of 130 microg/g creatinine, sensitivity and specificity of NGAL for detecting acute injury were 0.900 (95% CI, 0.73 to 0.98) and 0.995 (CI, 0.990 to 1.00), respectively, and positive and negative likelihood ratios were 181.5 (CI, 58.33 to 564.71) and 0.10 (CI, 0.03 to 0.29); these values were superior to those for NAG, alpha1-microglobulin, alpha1-acid glycoprotein, fractional excretion of sodium, and serum creatinine. In multiple logistic regression, urinary NGAL level was highly predictive of clinical outcomes, including nephrology consultation, dialysis, and admission to the intensive care unit (odds ratio, 24.71 [CI, 7.69 to 79.42]). LIMITATIONS: All patients came from a single center. Few kidney biopsies were performed. CONCLUSION: A single measurement of urinary NGAL helps to distinguish acute injury from normal function, prerenal azotemia, and chronic kidney disease and predicts poor inpatient outcomes.  (+info)

Impact of renal failure on survival of African patients with cirrhosis. (7/22)

To assess the effect of renal failure on the survival of black African patients with cirrhosis, we studied 132 (82 males, 50 females) cirrhotic black African patients with mean age of 47.5+/-14.4 years and mean follow-up period of 373+/-194 days. The edema and ascitis were the main reasons for admission to hospital. Renal failure was present in 30 (22.7%) patients, and it was positively correlated to the severity of the stage of the liver disease, and associated with severe hyponatremia. Survival at 1 year was 60.1% and 37.6% in the absence or presence of renal failure, respectively (p<0.001)). The stage of the liver disease was significantly inversely correlated with survival, which was further diminished in the presence of renal failure:23.7% versus 12.5% for Child-Pugh-Turcote (CPT) A-B in the absence or presence of renal failure, respectively (p=0.67), 30.2% versus 81.8% for CPT C in the absence or the presence of renal failure respectively (p<0.001). Hyponatremia has also appeared detrimental to survival, since mortality was 38.4% versus 81.8% in the absence or the presence of hyponatremia respectively (p<0.001). By multivariate analysis, renal failure, CPT stage C, and hyponatremia independently significantly correlated to mortality in patients with cirrhosis. We conclude that renal failure is frequently associated with decompensated cirrhosis. The presence of renal failure in this setting often results in high mortality. Renal failure that occurs in the setting of a severe liver disease and hyponatremia may be part of hepatorenal syndrome.  (+info)

Uremia induces proximal tubular cytoresistance and heme oxygenase-1 expression in the absence of acute kidney injury. (8/22)

 (+info)

Prerenal azotemia is common, especially in older adults and in people who are in the hospital.. The kidneys filter the blood. They also make urine to remove waste products. When the amount, or pressure, of blood flow through the kidney drops, filtering of the blood also drops. Or it may not occur at all. Waste products stay in the blood. Little or no urine is made, even though the kidney itself is working.. When nitrogen waste products, such as creatinine and urea, build up in the body, the condition is called azotemia. These waste products act as poisons when they build up. They damage tissues and reduce the ability of the organs to function.. Prerenal azotemia is the most common form of kidney failure in hospitalized people. Any condition that reduces blood flow to the kidney may cause it, including ...

N2 - Thirty-three hypertensive patients with a wide range of renal function were studied during initiation of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition with captopril to evaluate changes in potassium levels concomitant with reduction of aldosterone excretion. Ten patients (Group I) with low levels of plasma renin activity had no change in either aldosterone excretion or potassium during the first week of therapy. Twenty-three other patients (Group II) had decreased aldosterone excretion of an average of 63 percent, often reversing secondary hyperaldosteronism. This was associated with a rise in serum potassium from 3.6 ± 0.1 to 4.4 ± 0.1 mEq/liter (p , 0.001). Serum potassium levels during captopril therapy were inversely related to ...
The terms uremia and azotemia are applied to acute or chronic conditions in which the blood concentration of nitrogenous end products rises. The terms are otherwise poorly defined. Nitrogen retention usually occurs when the renal function is less than 30% of normal. Recently, progressive renal dysfunction has been graded as [1] diminished renal reserve, [2] renal insufficiency, [3] renal failure, and [4] uremia (Strauss and Welt (1) 1963), but each grade overlaps others.. Although urea is present in greatest amount, errors can occur when increased urea concentration is accepted as synonymous with the degree of renal dysfunction. Myers, Fine, and ...
Azotemia (azot, nitrogen + -emia, blood condition) is a medical condition characterized by abnormally high levels of nitrogen-containing compounds (such as urea, creatinine, various body waste compounds, and other nitrogen-rich compounds) in the blood. It is largely related to insufficient or dysfunctional filtering of blood by the kidneys. It can lead to uremia and acute kidney injury (kidney failure) if not controlled.

Someone suffering from azotemia may find that their output of urine is significantly reduced, leading to an increased risk of that person developing urinary tract infections and other similar problems. Its always a worrying sign when the body loses its regularity, as it can be indicative of a wide range of underlying issues. The best thing to do if you find that you are outputting less urine than you normally would is to consult a doctor or a medical professional for advice, however, it would also be a good idea to try and drink some water to make sure that youre not just a little dehydrated. People can sometimes tend to get a little squeamish when it comes to talking about going to the bathroom, and thats just silly because its something we all have to do whether we like it or not. Talking about it means problems can be shared and solved with more ease.. ...

The glomerular injury of preeclampsia manifests as a clinical triad, namely, hypertension, albuminuria, and a loss of intrinsic filtration capacity that lowers the GFR. Although we estimate that filtration capacity, as approximated by an ultrafiltration coefficient (Kf), is depressed by ,50% at the end of pregnancy (postpartum day 1, Table 3), this phenomenon is not widely recognized by clinicians. This is because GFR depression in clinical practice is identified by the presence of azotemia. The absence of overt azotemia (usually defined in women as serum creatinine ,1.2 mg/dl) in preeclamptic mothers during postpartum weeks 1 and 2 obscured the extent to which GFR and computed Kf were depressed in these subjects compared with healthy gravid control subjects.. We examined glomerular structure and ultrastructure in those subjects of the present report who were studied on day 1. We undertook a morphometric analysis of transmission and scanning electron photomicrographs (13). We showed that reduced ...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the disposition kinetics of digoxin after the administration of a single intravenous dose to the same dogs before and during azotemia. The digoxin plasma concentration-time data were fitted to a multicompartment model using nonlinear regression analysis. During azotemia, the biological half-life of digoxin was prolonged in six of seven dogs, while digoxin renal clearance, body clearance and apparent volume of distribution were significantly decreased. There was a corresponding increase in the apparent volume of the central compartment of digoxin. Approximately 45% of a digoxin dose was excreted by the kidney in these animals indicating a substantial nonrenal component to digoxin elimination in the dog. This nonrenal elimination did not change during azotemia, despite a decrease in renal clearance by 61%. ...
252 It is evident that blood sulfonamide levels above 8 mg. per 100 cc. were observed only in patients suffering from oliguria, or high azotemia, or both. Attempts at closer analysis are disappointingly inconclusive. The average blood sulfonamide level in 36 azotemic patients was 5.7 mg. per 100 cc. as compared with 2.3 mg. per 100 cc. in the control group of 14, but again the variations are too wide in proportion to the number of samples to warrant statistical analysis. The mean blood sulfonamide level in 38 oliguric patients was 5.4 and in 12 without oliguria, 2.5 milligrams per 100 cubic centimeters. The results are similar when the cases are divided, in an attempt to exclude the influence of variation in dosage, into two groups as follows: Group A, those patients who had external medication only, and Group B, those who received internal medication (oral, intraperitoneal, or intravenous). Eight patients could not be classified because of inadequate information regarding therapy. Of the 18 ...

Hemostasis is always a balance between the forces in the body that lead to bleeding and clotting. Azotemia from both acute and chronic kidney injury can alter the fundamental function of platelets and the formation of fibrin. As there is no information in the veterinary literature, this lecture will focus on the human medical literature that leads to understanding in the upset balance acquired in renal disease, especially platelet function. -bleeding? -thrombosis?
Other nonspecific laboratory abnormalities commonly found in patients with hypercalcemia result from disordered renal function. Patients commonly have significant azotemia at presentation.
PURPOSE We evaluated the role of surgery for genitourinary tuberculosis with special emphasis on reconstructive procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Case records of 241 patients with genitourinary tuberculosis who underwent surgery at our center during a period of 17 years were reviewed. Clinical features, organ involvement, investigations, treatment and outcome of therapy were studied. RESULTS There were 129 males and 112 females with a mean age of 34.6 years. The most common presentation was irritative voiding symptoms. Azotemia was seen in 54 (22.4%) cases. The most commonly involved organ was the kidney in 130 (53.94%) cases. Preoperative bacteriologic diagnosis was confirmed in 70 (29%) cases. All patients received antitubercular drug therapy for 9 months. A total of 248 procedures, including 33 endoscopic, 87 ablative and 128 reconstructive, were performed with some patients requiring more than 1 procedure. Early complications, which mainly involved the bowel, were seen in 19 (7.88%) cases.
Case Description We present the case of a 16 year-old female, previously well, who presented to her community hospital with a 9-day history of fever and pharyngitis. Her symptoms progressed (despite oral antibiotics) to include malaise, abdominal pain, and eventually shortness of breath, pleurisy, and profound nausea, prompting her to seek medical attention. Upon assessment the patient was hypotensive and tachypneic with mild respiratory distress; she was in gallop rhythm and had a very tender abdomen. Her laboratory investigations revealed a slightly elevated white cell count with left shift, thrombocytopenia (platelet count 59,000), azotemia, elevated bilirubin, and metabolic acidosis. She was transported to our pediatric intensive care unit and electively intubated and ventilated. Despite broad-spectrum antibiotics and inotropic support, the patients course was complicated by persistent fever and coagulopathy. Numerous other investigations, including head and abdominal imaging, revealed no ...
A prospective study of 213 patients admitted to a medical intensive care unit was done to determine the frequency of colonization of the respiratory tract with Gram-negative bacilli and the relation of such colonization to nosocomial infection. Ninety-five patients (45%) became colonized, 22% on the first hospital day. Associated with colonization were respiratory tract disease, coma, hypotension, tracheal intubation, acidosis, azotemia, and either leukocytosis or leukopenia. Antimicrobial therapy may have promoted colonization in some patients. Nosocomial infections developed in 26 patients (12.2%), 22 of whom were colonized with Gram-negative bacilli. Nosocomial respiratory infections occurred in 23% of colonized patients but in only 3.3% of noncolonized patients. The control of nosocomial pneumonia may require the development of methods for preventing or interrupting the colonization of hospitalized patients with Gram-negative bacilli. ...

The first condition for BUN increasing is renal dysfunction caused by Acute Nephritis, Chronic Nephritis, Toxic Nephritis, serious pyelonephritis, Renal Tuberculosis, renal vascular sclerosis, congenital PKD and renal tumors. BUN increasing has an important role in diagnosing Uremia. The level of BUN increasing is consistent with the serious condition of disease. For example, at the stage of azotemia, BUN is above 9mmo/l, but at the stage of Uremia BUN can be more than 20mmol/l. So BUN increasing can help to evaluate which stage the diseases condition has developed into ...
The relationship of natriuretic effect and furosemide excretion was studied in normal and azotemic dogs. Graded azotemia was produced in dogs by bilateral uretero-venous shunts of varying duration. The shunts were subsequently opened and urine and blood samples were taken to measure inulin, furosemide and sodium concentrations. Renal blood flow was measured by an electromagnetic flow probe. Two groups of dogs, control and experimental, were studied. The experimental group received a loading dose followed by a constant infusion of furosemide. This dose produced a natriuresis in nonazotemic normal dogs. The magnitude of this natriuresis correlated with furosemide excretion rate (P less than .005) and not with the plasma concentration of the drug. Furosemide clearance and extraction were inversely correlated with blood urea nitrogen. In the furosemide-treated group the augmentation of sodium excretion was not impaired except at blood urea nitrogen concentrations of greater than 200 mg/dl (two ...

An excess level of nitrogen-based substances compounds such as urea, creatinine, and other body waste compounds in the blood is defined as azotemia. It can be caused by higher than normal production of nitrogen-containing substances (with high protein diet or gastrointestinal bleeding), improper filtration in the kidneys (kidney disease), or reabsorption of urine back to bloodstream.
e volume of fluid therapy is only indicated for the presence of this indicator.To calculate the required infusion volume summarize the visible and invisible fluid loss.Invisible losses represent the amount of water extracted through the skin and lungs during quiet breathing.Normally, these losses amount to 500-600 ml / day.Consequently, for anuria as visible loss absent daily amount of fluid injected should not exceed 500-600 ml.. 3.

Ultimately, prerenal ARF is caused by sustained hypotension that reduces renal perfusion. However, many of the etiologies discussed below reduce renal perfusion over courses much longer than hours to days. Given the relatively slow decline in renal perfusion, how can these etiologies precipitate relatively sudden drops in GFR? The answer is that neuroendocrine and autoregulatory mechanisms can usually maintain GFR in the face of falling renal perfusion over a wide range. However, at some point these mechanisms cannot sufficiently compensate and this precipitates a sudden drop in GFR, manifesting as ARF ...

Bad news on the health front- At that same doctors appointment on 11/1 he was talking to me about my bp and he mentioned that I am on A LOT of medication, which I think I am too. I told him that I kinda feel like it might not even be enough because Ill have days when it gets pretty high (130-140/90s). He asked me if I had ever had my kidneys checked and I said that all of my bloodwork has come back with normal kidney function. He decided to refer me to a specialist anyway and wanted me to have an ultrasound done on all of my systems so I went in on 11/8. I figured all theyd find was a gallstone (they found one when I was pregnant with Gracie) but when I turned to see the screen as she was checking my left kidney I saw a black blip on the screen. I asked Is that a cyst? and she said yes very nonchalantly. I know they arent supposed to discuss their findings with the patients so I didnt press her for more ...
