Late referral of end-stage renal failure. (1/8259)

We studied all new patients accepted for renal replacement therapy (RRT) in one unit from 1/1/96 to 31/12/97 (n = 198), to establish time from nephrology referral to RRT, evidence of renal disease prior to referral and the adequacy of renal management prior to referral. Sixty four (32.3%, late referral group) required RRT within 12 weeks of referral. Fifty-nine (29.8%) had recognizable signs of chronic renal failure > 26 weeks prior to referral. Patients starting RRT soon after referral were hospitalized for significantly longer on starting RRT (RRT within 12 weeks of referral, median hospitalization 25.0 days (n = 64); RRT > 12 weeks after referral, median 9.7 days (n = 126), (p < 0.001)). Observed survival at 1 year was 68.3% overall, with 1-year survival of the late referral and early referral groups being 60.5% and 72.5%, respectively (p = NS). Hypertension was found in 159 patients (80.3%): 46 (28.9%) were started on antihypertensive medication following referral, while a further 28 (17.6%) were started on additional antihypertensives. Of the diabetic population (n = 78), only 26 (33.3%) were on an angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) at referral. Many patients are referred late for dialysis despite early signs of renal failure, and the pre-referral management of many of the patients, as evidenced by the treatment of hypertension and use of ACEI in diabetics, is less than optimal.  (+info)

Impaired lysosomal processing of beta2-microglobulin by infiltrating macrophages in dialysis amyloidosis. (2/8259)

BACKGROUND: Macrophages may participate in amyloid fibril formation by processing the protein precursor. Although this theory seems to apply for amyloidosis, in which proteolytic cleavage is a prerequisite for amyloid fibril formation, it has not been demonstrated for beta2-microglobulin (beta2m) amyloidosis. We aimed to establish the role played by macrophages in beta2m amyloidosis. METHODS: We used a double immunogold electron microscopy technique, including mouse antihuman CD68, rabbit antihuman beta2m, amyloid P component, and lysosome-associated membrane protein (LAMP-1) antibodies. Differential density labeling studies of beta2m and amyloid P component were performed extra- and intracellularly to assess protein processing by macrophages. RESULTS: The cells surrounding amyloid fibrils were found to be mostly CD68 positive, suggesting that they were of monocyte-macrophage lineage. Intracellular accumulation of amyloid fibrils was also observed; these fibrils were constantly surrounded by LAMP-1-linked gold particles, demonstrating that intracellular beta2m was almost exclusively lysosomal. The rough-surface endoplasmic reticulum was not labeled by beta2m antibody, suggesting that there was no active synthesis of beta2m by the cells. As a marker of endocytosis, protruded cytoplasmic processes in close relation with the intracellular accumulations of beta2m amyloid fibrils were observed. No difference in density labeling (extracellular vs. intracellular) was observed for beta2m, whereas intracellular P component labeling was significantly decreased. CONCLUSIONS: All of these data are strongly suggestive of phagocytosis and not synthesis of amyloid fibrils by macrophages. Further, they demonstrate an impaired lysosomal processing specific for beta2m, as other compounds of the amyloid fibrils (P component) are significantly cleared.  (+info)

Septicemia in dialysis patients: incidence, risk factors, and prognosis. (3/8259)

BACKGROUND: Infection is second to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and septicemia causes a majority of these infectious deaths. To identify patients at high risk and to characterize modifiable risk factors for septicemia, we examined the incidence, risk factors, and prognosis for septicemia in a large, representative group of U.S. dialysis patients. METHODS: We conducted a longitudinal cohort study of incident ESRD patients in the case-mix study of the U.S. Renal Data System with seven years of follow-up from hospitalization and death records. Poisson regression was used to examine independent risk factors for hospital-managed septicemia. Cox proportional hazards analysis was used to assess the independent effect of septicemia on all-cause mortality and on death from septicemia. Separate analyses were performed for patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD). RESULTS: Over seven years of follow-up, 11.7% of 4005 HD patients and 9.4% of 913 PD patients had at least one episode of septicemia. Older age and diabetes were independent risk factors for septicemia in all patients. Among HD patients, low serum albumin, temporary vascular access, and dialyzer reuse were also associated with increased risk. Among PD patients, white race and having no health insurance at dialysis initiation were also risk factors. Patients with septicemia had twice the risk of death from any cause and a fivefold to ninefold increased risk of death from septicemia. CONCLUSIONS: Septicemia, which carries a marked increased risk of death, occurs frequently in patients on PD as well as HD. Early referral to a nephrologist, improving nutrition, and avoiding temporary vascular access may decrease the incidence of septicemia. Further study of how race, insurance status, and dialyzer reuse can contribute to the risk of septicemia among ESRD patients is indicated.  (+info)

Hemodialysis with high-calcium dialysate impairs cardiac relaxation. (4/8259)

BACKGROUND: During hemodialysis (HD), serum ionized calcium is directly related to the dialysate calcium concentration. We have recently shown an acute induction of hypercalcemia to impair left ventricular (LV) relaxation. In the current study we sought to establish whether changes in serum Ca++ also affect LV function during HD. METHODS: We echocardiographically examined the LV relaxation and systolic function of 12 patients with end-stage renal disease before and after three HD treatments with dialysate Ca++ concentrations of 1.25 mmol/liter (dCa++1.25), 1.5 mmol/liter (dCa++1.50), and 1.75 mmol/liter (dCa++1.75), respectively. Age- and sex-matched healthy controls were also examined echocardiographically. RESULTS: The LV posterior wall thickness and the interventricular septum thickness, and the LV end-diastolic dimension and the end-systolic dimensions were significantly greater in the patients when compared with the controls, and the LV fractional shortening, the ratio of peak early to peak late diastolic velocities (E/Amax), and the isovolumic relaxation time (IVRT) showed impairment of LV relaxation and systolic function in the patients. Serum ionized calcium increased significantly during the dCa++1.5 HD (1.24 +/- 0.10 vs. 1.34 +/- 0.06 mmol/liter, P = 0. 004) and dCa++1.75 HD (1.19 +/- 0.10 vs. 1.47 +/- 0.06 mmol/liter, P = 0.002), and plasma intact parathyroid hormone decreased significantly during the dCa++1.75 HD (medians 8.2 vs. 2.7 pmol/liter, P = 0.002). LV systolic function was not altered during any of the treatments. The changes in E/Amax and IVRT suggested impairment of relaxation during all sessions, but only during the dCa++1.75 HD was the impairment statistically significant (E/Amax 1. 153 +/- 0.437 vs. 0.943 +/- 0.352, P < 0.05; IVRT 147 +/- 29 vs. 175 +/- 50 msecond, P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: HD with high-calcium (dCa++1. 75 mmol/liter) dialysate impairs LV relaxation when compared with lower calcium dialysate (dCa++1.25 and dCa++1.5 mmol/liter) treatments.  (+info)

Activation of the kallikrein-kinin system in hemodialysis: role of membrane electronegativity, blood dilution, and pH. (5/8259)

BACKGROUND: The kallikrein-kinin system activation by contact with a negatively charged surface has been promulgated to be responsible for hypersensitivity reactions. However, to explain the low frequency and heterogeneity of hypersensitivity reactions, we hypothesized that not only the electronegativity of the membrane, but also other physicochemical parameters could influence the activation of the contact phase system of plasma assessed by the measurement of kallikrein activity and bradykinin concentration. METHODS: Plasma kallikrein activity using chromogenic substrate (S2302) and plasma bradykinin concentration (enzyme immuno assay) were measured during the perfusion of human plasma (2.5 ml/min) through minidialyzers mounted with six different membranes [polyacrylonitrile (PAN) from Asahi (PANDX) and from Hospal (AN69), polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) from Toray, cellulose triacetate (CT) from Baxter, cuprophane (CUP) from Akzo and polysulfone (PS) from Fresenius]. RESULTS: A direct relationship was shown between the electronegativity of the membrane assessed by its zeta potential and the activation of plasma during the first five minutes of plasma circulation. With the AN69 membrane, the detection of a kallikrein activity in diluted plasma but not in undiluted samples confirmed the importance of a protease-antiprotease imbalance leading to bradykinin release during the first five minutes of dialysis. With PAN membranes, the use of citrated versus heparinized plasma and the use of various rinsing solutions clearly show a dramatic effect of pH on the kallikrein activity and the bradykinin concentration measured in plasma. Finally, increasing the zeta potential of the membrane leads to a significant increase of plasma kallikrein activity and bradykinin concentration. CONCLUSIONS: Our in vitro experimental approach evidences the importance of the control of these physicochemical factors to decrease the activation of the contact system.  (+info)

Practice patterns, case mix, Medicare payment policy, and dialysis facility costs. (6/8259)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of case mix, practice patterns, features of the payment system, and facility characteristics on the cost of dialysis. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: The nationally representative sample of dialysis units in the 1991 U.S. Renal Data System's Case Mix Adequacy (CMA) Study. The CMA data were merged with data from Medicare Cost Reports, HCFA facility surveys, and HCFA's end-stage renal disease patient registry. STUDY DESIGN: We estimated a statistical cost function to examine the determinants of costs at the dialysis unit level. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The relationship between case mix and costs was generally weak. However, dialysis practices (type of dialysis membrane, membrane reuse policy, and treatment duration) did have a significant effect on costs. Further, facilities whose payment was constrained by HCFA's ceiling on the adjustment for area wage rates incurred higher costs than unconstrained facilities. The costs of hospital-based units were considerably higher than those of freestanding units. Among chain units, only members of one of the largest national chains exhibited significant cost savings relative to independent facilities. CONCLUSIONS: Little evidence showed that adjusting dialysis payment to account for differences in case mix across facilities would be necessary to ensure access to care for high-cost patients or to reimburse facilities equitably for their costs. However, current efforts to increase dose of dialysis may require higher payments. Longer treatments appear to be the most economical method of increasing the dose of dialysis. Switching to more expensive types of dialysis membranes was a more costly means of increasing dose and hence must be justified by benefits beyond those of higher dose. Reusing membranes saved money, but the savings were insufficient to offset the costs associated with using more expensive membranes. Most, but not all, of the higher costs observed in hospital-based units appear to reflect overhead cost allocation rather than a difference in real resources devoted to treatment. The economies experienced by the largest chains may provide an explanation for their recent growth in market share. The heterogeneity of results by chain size implies that characterizing units using a simple chain status indicator variable is inadequate. Cost differences by facility type and the effects of the ongoing growth of large chains are worthy of continued monitoring to inform both payment policy and antitrust enforcement.  (+info)

Ex vivo evaluation of a Taylor-Couette flow, immobilized heparinase I device for clinical application. (7/8259)

Efficient and safe heparin anticoagulation has remained a problem for continuous renal replacement therapies and intermittent hemodialysis for patients with acute renal failure. To make heparin therapy safer for the patient with acute renal failure at high risk of bleeding, we have proposed regional heparinization of the circuit via an immobilized heparinase I filter. This study tested a device based on Taylor-Couette flow and simultaneous separation/reaction for efficacy and safety of heparin removal in a sheep model. Heparinase I was immobilized onto agarose beads via cyanogen bromide activation. The device, referred to as a vortex flow plasmapheretic reactor, consisted of two concentric cylinders, a priming volume of 45 ml, a microporous membrane for plasma separation, and an outer compartment where the immobilized heparinase I was fluidized separately from the blood cells. Manual white cell and platelet counts, hematocrit, total protein, and fibrinogen assays were performed. Heparin levels were indirectly measured via whole-blood recalcification times (WBRTs). The vortex flow plasmapheretic reactor maintained significantly higher heparin levels in the extracorporeal circuit than in the sheep (device inlet WBRTs were 1. 5 times the device outlet WBRTs) with no hemolysis. The reactor treatment did not effect any physiologically significant changes in complete blood cell counts, platelets, and protein levels for up to 2 hr of operation. Furthermore, gross necropsy and histopathology did not show any significant abnormalities in the kidney, liver, heart, brain, and spleen.  (+info)

Hepatitis virus infection in haemodialysis patients from Moldavia. (8/8259)

BACKGROUND: Although the epidemiology of hepatitis B (HBV) and C (HCV) now seems well established for Western European countries, in Central and Eastern Europe < 50% of all dialysis centres routinely test for hepatitis C antibodies since testing is not available or is not applied to all patients. This study describes the prevalence, risk factors and clinical significance of HBV and HCV infection for the haemodialysis population of the North Eastern region of Romania, Moldavia. METHODS: The presence of HBV antigens was determined with an ELISA kit (Wellcome, Abbot) and HCV antibodies with the ELISA-3 Ortho-HCV, third generation test. The following individual data were collected: gender, age, duration of dialysis, rural/urban domicile, actual and previous HBV status, actual HCV status, known acute, clinically evident hepatitis episodes in the last 3 years, monthly alanine aminotransferase (ALAT) and aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT) levels, complete biochemical hepatic assessment at the time of the study, transfusions for the past 3 years and family history. RESULTS: HBV and HCV prevalences were 17% (stable over the last 3 years) and 75%, respectively; co-infection was seen in 10% of the subjects. Hospitalization (nosocomial infection) for HBV, blood transfusions and duration on dialysis for HCV, emerged as the main risk factors for hepatitis infection. Socio-economic conditions appear to be equally important for HCV infection, since the prevalence was significantly higher among patients from rural, underdeveloped areas than urban areas (80.8 vs 60.3%), and infection was already present in a large proportion of patients (47%) before starting dialysis, without being related to previous disease duration or blood transfusions. HBV and/or HCV was not associated with a worse clinical or biochemical profile at the time of the study. However, infected patients had significantly more previous cytolytic episodes, with higher, transient increases in ALAT and ASAT levels. CONCLUSIONS: HCV infection is endemic among dialysis centres in Moldavia. Apart from previously well-known risk factors for hepatitis infection, our study demonstrates the negative impact of socio-economic underdevelopment. Simple measures such as enforced general asepsia rules, careful disinfection and equipment sterilization, routine testing of patients from economically disadvantaged areas and monthly, serial determination of hepatic enzymes should be the common practice in dialysis centres in Romania.  (+info)

The main purposes of this thesis were to use ESR to study the levels of NTBI and oxidative stress after intravenous (IV) iron injection and to compare two commercially available IV iron formulations, low-molecular weight iron-dextran (ID) and iron-sucrose (IS), regarding this topic. In addition, the impact of two different hemodialysis modalities on iron homeostasis and the effect of modifying the ESA administration praxis on ESA requirement, were studied. Sixty-four patients on chronic hemodialysis treatment participated in these studies. To investigate the appearance of NTBI and induction of oxidative stress, blood samples were collected before and after IV iron injections. To compare two different hemodialysis modalities, a prospective, randomized, patient-blinded study, with conventional hemodialysis (HD) and on-line hemodiafiltration (HDF), in a 2x2 months design, was conducted. Finally, a retrospective register study was performed on 18 patients, comparing periods with two different ...

U.S., Feb. 2 -- ClinicalTrials.gov registry received information related to the study (NCT03038165) titled Hemodynamic Parameters Changes in the Course of Hemodialysis Sessions in Patients With Intradialytic Hypertension on Jan. 25. Brief Summary: While the exact pathogenesis of Intradialytic hypertension remains to be determined, several mechanisms were proposed to be involved. The main factors to determine the arterial blood pressure are the peripheral vascular resistance and cardiac output. The assumption is that the increase of blood pressure is related to the increase in peripheral vascular resistance during the dialysis session, due to fluid removal and fast reduction of the intravascular volume reduction. Using the NICAS device (Non-Invasive Cardiac System), the hemodynamic profile in patients with intradialytic hypertension will be evaluated Study Start Date: Study Type: Observational Condition: Intradialytic Hypertension Intervention: Not Provided Recruitment Status: Recruiting ...
Vascular access choices in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients depend on a number of factors. A recent update was published in AJKD from the US DOPPS Practice Monitor with international comparisons. Corresponding author Dr Ronald Pisoni (RP) discusses this paper with Dr. Sean Kalloo (AJKDblog), AJKD Blog Contributor.. AJKDblog: Despite significant improvement in vascular access use for prevalent hemodialysis patients in the United States over the past 17 years, there has been no improvement in vascular access use for new hemodialysis starts, with nearly 80% initiating hemodialysis therapy with a central venous catheter (CVC). What are some of the factors involved with such a high rate of CVC use in the US?. RP: The Fistula First program recently transitioned to the Fistula First Catheter Last initiative to focus on the development of tools and resources to help dialysis facilities and clinicians reduce catheters and increase AV fistula rates in hemodialysis patients. The crux of this latter ...

Vascular access-related infections and septicemia are the main causes of infections among hemodialysis patients, the majority of them caused by Staphylococcus species. Acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) has recently been reported with a probable antistaphylococcal activity. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of ASA on the risk of dialysis-related infection and septicemia among incident chronic hemodialysis patients. In a nested case-control study, we identified 449 cases of vascular access-related infections and septicemia, and 4156 controls between 2001 and 2007 from our incident chronic hemodialysis patients cohort. Cases were defined as patients hospitalized with a main diagnosis of vascular access-related infection or septicemia on the discharge sheet (ICD-9 codes). Up to ten controls per case were selected by incidence density sampling and matched to cases on age, sex and follow-up time. ASA exposure was measured at the admission and categorized as: no use, low dose (80-324 mg/d), high dose (≥325

Headache is one of the most frequently encountered neurological symptoms during hemodialysis. According to International Classification of Headache criteria dialysis-related headache was defined as the headache occurring during hemodialysis with no specific characteristic. It resolves spontaneously within 72 hours after the hemodialysis session ends. There are few studies in the literature investigating the clinical features of dialysis headache. The pathophysiology of hemodialysis-related headache is not known, but various triggering factors have been identified, including changes in blood pressure, serum sodium and magnesium levels during hemodialysis sessions, caffeine deprivation and stress. The aim of this article is to evaluate and analyze features of headache in patients undergoing hemodialysis. ...

Background : Recently, a novel blood-borne virus has been identified and named hepatitis G virus. Transfusion is the main route of transmission. It is known that patients on maintenance dialysis are more susceptible to infections with parenterally-transmitted viruses than the general population. The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence of hepatitis G infection in a Belgian dialysis unit. Methods: The entire population of our dialysis unit (82 patients) was tested for the presence of hepatitis G virus (HGV) by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. History of transfusion or renal transplantation coinfections with hepatitis B and C viruses, and serum aminotransferase levels were also tested. ...

Background: Sudden cardiac death is common and accounts largely for the excess mortality of patients on maintenance dialysis. It is unknown whether aldosterone and cortisol increase the incidence of sudden cardiac death in dialysis patients. Methods and results: We analysed data from 1255 diabetic haemodialysis patients participating in the German Diabetes and Dialysis Study (4D Study). Categories of aldosterone and cortisol were determined at baseline and patients were followed for a median of 4 years. By Cox regression analyses, hazard ratios (HRs) were determined for the effect of aldosterone, cortisol, and their combination on sudden death and other adjudicated cardiovascular outcomes. The mean age of the patients was 66 ± 8 years (54% male). Median aldosterone was ,15 pg/mL (detection limit) and cortisol 16.8 µg/dL. Patients with aldosterone levels ,200 pg/mL had a significantly higher risk of sudden death (HR: 1.69; 95% CI: 1.06-2.69) compared with those with an aldosterone ,15 pg/mL. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Hepatitis B virus infection in hemodialysis. T2 - Recent discoveries. AU - Fabrizi, Fabrizio. AU - Lunghi, Giovanna. AU - Martin, Paul. PY - 2002/9. Y1 - 2002/9. N2 - Controlling the spread of HBV infection in dialysis units has been one of the major advances in the treatment of patients with ESRD. The frequency of HBsAg carriers on maintenance dialysis is low in developed countries. However, prevalence and incidence rates of HBV infection among dialysis patients in less developed countries remain very high. Patients on maintenance dialysis and chronic HBsAg carriage are typically anicteric and rarely develop symptoms of hepatitis. The relationship between HBsAg and aminotransferase activity in dialysis population is stronger than has so far been recognized. HBsAg positivity is significantly associated with hepatocellular damage in dialysis patients. Aminotransferase activity in dialysis population is usually depressed; this hampers the recognition of HBV-related liver disease ...
Background. A standardized practical method of post-dialysis blood sampling is required to improve the precision of using urea kinetics in the evaluation of haemodialysis dose and to permit comparative audit. The methods recommended in the Renal Association and Dialysis Outcomes Quality Initiative (DOQI) guidelines reduce the blood pump speed to a low rate at the end of haemodialysis before blood sampling after 10 and 15 s respectively. However, these `low flow methods compensate only partially for cardiopulmonary recirculation and may be impractical in routine practice because they involve sequential steps and require accurate timing of sampling. Therefore we have evaluated an alternative method of stopping only the dialysate flow at the end of the haemodialysis session before performing post-dialysis blood sampling.. Methods. The study was performed in three phases. Serial measurements of blood urea were obtained from arterial and venous samples taken at times 0, 30, 60, 120, 180, 240, 300 ...

October 19, 2017-A study that aimed to describe the temporal trends and outcomes of endovascular and surgical revascularization in a large, nationally representative sample of patients with end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis who were hospitalized for peripheral artery disease (PAD), was published by Pranav S. Garimella, MD, et al in Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC): Cardiovascular Interventions (2017;10:2101-2110).. The background of the study is that although PAD is prevalent among patients with end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality, there is a paucity of information on trends in endovascular and surgical revascularization and postprocedure outcomes in this population.. As summarized in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions, the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (2002 to 2012) was used to identify hemodialysis patients undergoing endovascular or surgical procedures for PAD using diagnostic and procedural codes. The ...
The bacteria within our gut appear to have an effect on nearly every aspect of our health. Little is known about how hemodialysis treatment and kidney failure influence the bacterial composition in our gut and in turn how this influences our health. Emerging evidence suggests that perhaps some of these bacteria are a major source of molecules that may build up and cause harm to the health of hemodialysis patients. This study helped us understand more about the relationship between gut bacteria and clinical risk factors in hemodialysis patients. In addition, it will shape future interventional studies to improve health in this population.. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, ten MHD patients (7M, 50 ± 4years, 80% African American) were assessed on a non-dialysis day. Assessment included: bone and body composition by DEXA; arterial function by applanation tonometry; and dietary intake through dietary recalls over the 48h prior to the fecal sample collection. Participants were asked to collect ...

Background. C‐reactive protein (CRP) levels, an acute phase response index, predict cardiovascular outcome and are inversely related to visceral proteins, including albuminaemia in haemodialysis patients. Less definite is the relationship between inflammation and markers of somatic proteins such as serum creatinine in such patients. To explore these questions, a cross‐sectional analysis of potential predictors of serum creatinine was performed.. Methods. One hundred and seventy‐nine prevalent haemodialysis patients as of June 2001 were included in the cohort. Midweek pre‐dialysis blood samples were collected during the months of June, September through to December 2001 inclusive, and determinations of serum urea (urease method), creatinine (alkaline picrate method) and CRP levels by means of a high sensitivity immunonephelometric method were performed. Furthermore, pre‐ and post‐dialysis body weights were recorded and 2 min post‐dialysis serum urea levels were determined three ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Role of folate deficiency on erythropoietin resistance in pediatric and adolescent patients on chronic dialysis. AU - Bamgbola, Oluwatoyin Fatai. AU - Kaskel, Frederick. PY - 2005/11/1. Y1 - 2005/11/1. N2 - Unlike iron therapy, folate use is not a standard of care in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Despite iron repletion, poor response to erythropoietin (EPO) treatment is common. Theoretical evidence for folate deficiency (FD) includes chronic blood loss, inflammation, malnutrition, and nutrient loss during dialysis. Due to poor diagnostic standards, early studies failed to establish a role for FD in EPO resistance. Given that hematological response to therapeutic intervention is the gold standard for FD, its diagnosis was therefore based on composite scoring of RBC and/or folate indices. Fifteen subjects (8-20 years) on chronic HD were enrolled in this study. No folate supplement was given in the first six months. Thereafter, 5-mg folic acid was administered orally after HD sessions ...
Background. End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is associated with a broad spectrum of morphological and functional thyroid disorders. Recent studies have shown that low free triiodothyronine (fT3) levels are related to inflammatory status and endothelial activation in ESRD patients on haemodialysis (HD). Limited data exist about a possible relationship between dialysis regimen, namely long nocturnal haemodialysis (LNHD), and thyroid function parameters. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between dialysis regimen and thyroid function, and consequently with the main patient outcomes. Methods. To this purpose, we performed a retrospective, single-centre cohort study including 220 incident chronic HD patients treated during an 8-year period (from January 2010 to December 2017). The main clinical and haematochemical parameters, including thyroid function, were evaluated and related to the main patient outcomes. Results. Patients with low fT3 levels (,3.05 ng/mL) showed significantly ...

Eating during dialysis may improve nutritional status by counteracting the catabolic effects of HD treatment; but eating during HD may be discouraged because of concerns of postprandial hypotension. However, little data are available to support this practice. In this study, we hypothesized that high-protein meals during HD do not lead to symptomatic intradialytic hypotension events. Design: A 9-week, nonrandomized, parallel-arm study. Setting: A single ...
We read with great interest the nice article by Etemadi and colleagues, in your journal, Revista Portuguesa de Pneumologia, entitled Unexplained pulmonary hypertension in peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis patients.1 In a retrospective study of chronic hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis patients, pulmonary hypertension was found in 14 (41.1%) patients of the hemodialysis group and in 6 (18.7%) patients of the peritoneal dialysis group, where pulmonary hypertension was defined as a systolic pulmonary artery pressure (SPAP)≥35mmHg. They concluded that unexplained pulmonary hypertension seems to be more frequent in patients undergoing hemodialysis than with patients in the peritoneal dialysis group. In this context, I would like to make a few points about pulmonary hypertension in dialysis patients. In a study of 102 maintenance hemodialysis patients, we found pulmonary artery pressure of 41.5±12.6mmHg. In our study, 76.5% of hemodialysis patients had SPAP=35mmHg. In this study we can also ...

In considering the pro-oxidant effect of ascorbic acid, the authors hypothesize that adjuvant therapy with larger doses of ascorbic acid in hemodialysis patients with iron overload may raise the risk of increasing free radical generation. The oxidative stress of intravenous ascorbic acid supplementation in hemodialysis patients was evaluated in this study. Methods: Six healthy subjects and 29 hemodialysis patients were enrolled. Chemical scavenging activity of various compounds was measured by in vitro ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Interpretation of serum aluminum values in dialysis patients. AU - McCarthy, J. T.. AU - Milliner, D. S.. AU - Kurtz, S. B.. AU - Johnson, W. J.. AU - Moyer, T. P.. PY - 1986. Y1 - 1986. N2 - To determine the significance of serum aluminum levels in dialysis patients, the authors retrospectively analyzed a series of patients on maintenance hemodialysis (HD) and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). All patients had always been treated with a dialysate containing negligible amounts of aluminum. The serum aluminum levels of hemodialysis and CAPD patients were not significantly different, not related to age or sex, and not affected by the presence of diabetes or vitamin D intake. The most important determinant of serum aluminum level in the hemodialysis patients was the current dose of aluminum-containing phosphate-binding medication. This relationship was most striking in the compliant patients. In hemodialysis patients, after an increase during the first one to two ...
Hypertension and intradialytic hypotension are common complications in patients on chronic maintenance hemodialysis (HD). Sodium balance is important in mediating both processes. Recent evidence shows that individualization of the sodium concentration in the dialysate to match the patients own serum sodium results in less thirst, less interdialytic weight gain, less HD-related symptoms, and better blood pressure control. In this project we plan to evaluate the safety and tolerability of sodium individualization in hypotension-prone patients in order to generate pilot data for a larger study in patients with intradialytic hypotension. In this protocol, we will recruit 7 hypotension-prone subjects. We will use an open-label cross-over design with randomized blocks. After a 3-week baseline period where pre-HD serum sodium will be measured weekly to establish each patients average serum sodium, subjects will be randomized to 2 weeks on standard dialysate sodium (140 mmol/L) or individualized ...
The European Commission (EC) has approved a dosing and administration label update in the EU for AstraZenecas Lokelma (sodium zirconium cyclosilicate) to include patients with hyperkalaemia on stable haemodialysis.. The approval by the EC was based on data from the Phase IIIb DIALIZE trial, the first ever randomised, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate a potassium binder in patients on stable haemodialysis. The trial showed sustained potassium control pre-dialysis for more patients receiving Lokelma, compared with placebo.1. Mene Pangalos, Executive Vice President, BioPharmaceuticals R&D, said: More than 300,000 patients with end-stage renal disease in Europe are undergoing haemodialysis and are at risk of experiencing high potassium levels. This label update provides important guidance to manage hyperkalaemia, a condition which can be life-threatening in these patients if left untreated.. In DIALIZE, 41% of patients receiving Lokelma maintained pre-dialysis potassium levels on at least ...

AU - Devaraj, Sridevi. AU - Palmer, Biff. AU - Grundy, Scott M.. AU - Jialal, Ishwarlal. PY - 2000. Y1 - 2000. N2 - Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) who have undergone dialysis treatment. The oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL) appears to be a crucial step in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. The increased oxidative stress and attendant increased oxidizability of lipoproteins, such as LDL could contribute to the accelerated atherosclerosis in dialysis patients. Since α-tocopherol (AT) is the major antioxidant in LDL, the aim of the present study was to test the effectiveness of RRR-AT supplementation (800 I.U. per day) for 12 weeks on the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation. The study subjects comprised patients with ...
Kidney disease is the ninth leading cause of death in the United States (1). Approximately 19 million U.S. adults have chronic kidney disease (2), and an estimated 80,000 persons have chronic kidney failure diagnosed annually (3). Major causes of chronic kidney failure are diabetes mellitus and hypertension, which account for approximately 60% of new cases (3). To assess national and state-specific trends in the prevalence of chronic kidney failure during 1990--2001, CDC analyzed data from the United States Renal Data System (USRDS). This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which indicated that the prevalence of chronic kidney failure in the United States increased 104% during 1990--2001. Treating and controlling risk factors and screening persons at high risk for chronic kidney failure are key steps that health-care providers and public health practitioners can take to reverse the upward trend in this disease. Data from the Renal Data Extraction and Referencing System (RenDER), ...
The efficiency of haemodialysis treatment relies on a functional status of vascular access. A vascular access makes life-saving haemodialysis treatments possible. The efficiency of haemodialysis treatment relies on a functional status of vascular access. The purpose of this review was to discuss the role of haemodialysis and vascular access in end stage kidney disease. Vascular access and its related problems represent the main factors that determine a rise in the rate of incidence of the disease among haemodialysis patients and, consequently, a rise in the healthcare expenses. Vascular access can be divided into three categories: arteriovenous fistula, central venous catheter and arteriovenous graft. Central venous catheter has a number of disadvantages, including a considerable risk of infection and mortality. It also has negative implications for the use of a fistula for dialysis. In contrast, arteriovenous fistula is the most beneficial method, as it has a low risk of infection and mortality, and
The effects of frequent nocturnal home hemodialysis: the Frequent Hemodialysis Network Nocturnal Trial. This trial was launched because it was noticed from small studies that more frequent nocturnal dialysis may help improve outcomes in dialysis patients. A multicenter study headed by Dr. Rocco et al where 87 patients randomized to three times per week conventional hemodialysis or to nocturnal hemodialysis six times per week, all with single-use high-flux dialyzers. The 45 patients in the frequent nocturnal arm had a 1.82-fold higher mean weekly stdKt/V(urea). NO significant effect of nocturnal hemodialysis for either of the two coprimary outcomes (death or left ventricular mass (measured by MRI) was found. Secondary outcomes included cognitive performance, self-reported depression, laboratory markers of nutrition, mineral metabolism and anemia, blood pressure and rates of hospitalization, and vascular access interventions. Patients in the nocturnal arm had improved control of hyperphosphatemia ...

N2 - End-stage liver and kidney disease (ELKD) is an indication for deceased donor simultaneous liver-kidney transplantation. Although a few cases of living donor liver-kidney transplantation have been reported, the invasiveness remains to be discussed. Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is an alternative choice for ELKD, but has never been reported. Here, we report a case of successful LDLT for a patient with ELKD on hemodialysis. The patient was a 63-year-old male and had decompensated hepatitis C cirrhosis with seronegativity for hepatitis C virus. He had non-diabetic end-stage renal failure and had been on hemodialysis for 3 years. He ...
Hemodialysis patients have higher rates of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality compared to the general population. Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) plays an important role in the development of cardiovascular disease. In addition, hemodialysis alters MBL concentration and functional activity. The present study determines the predictive value of MBL levels for future cardiac events (C-event), cardiovascular events (CV-event) and all-cause mortality in HD patients. We conducted a prospective study of 107 patients on maintenance hemodialysis. Plasma MBL, properdin, C3d and sC5b-9 was measured before and after one dialysis session. The association with future C-events, CV-events, and all-cause mortality was evaluated using Cox regression models. During median follow-up of 27 months, 36 participants developed 21 C-events and 36 CV-events, whereas 37 patients died. The incidence of C-events and CV-events was significantly higher in patients with low MBL levels (|319 ng/mL, lower quartile). In fully adjusted
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Controlling the cost of chronic diseases remains one of the vexing problems of developed and developing nations alike. Taiwan, faced with rapidly escalating healthcare costs associated with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) services utilization, imposed an outpatient dialysis global budget (ODBG) on outpatient dialysis care. This study, using a before and after study design with a comparison group, assessed the impact of this policy innovation on outpatient, inpatient and emergency room utilization. Using a difference in difference (DID) strategy and the generalized estimating equation (GEE) approach, this study found providers responded to these changes through cost reduction and revenue enhancement strategies. This study extends our understanding of provider responses to changes in reimbursement policies that target one segment of the continuum of care required by chronic disease patients.
A dialysis catheter is a catheter used for exchanging blood to and from a hemodialysis machine and a patient. The dialysis catheter contains two lumens: venous and arterial. Although both lumens are in the vein, the arterial lumen, like natural arteries, carries blood away from the heart, while the venous lumen returns blood towards the heart. The arterial lumen (typically red) withdraws blood from the patient and carries it to the dialysis machine, while the venous lumen (typically blue) returns blood to the patient (from the dialysis machine). Flow rates of dialysis catheters range between 200 and 500 ml/min. If a patient requires long-term dialysis therapy, a chronic dialysis catheter will be inserted. Chronic catheters contain a dacron cuff that is tunneled beneath the skin approximately 3-8 cm. The tunnel is thought to add a barrier to infection. The most popular dialysis catheter sold on the market today is the split-tip dialysis catheter. This catheter comprises two free floating ...

Malnutrition-inflammation-atherosclerosis syndrome is one of the causes of increased mortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD). The aim of the study was to assess the inflammation and nutritional status of patients in end-stage kidney disease treated with maintenance hemodialysis. The study included a group of 98 hemodialyzed patients with stage 5 CKD (38 women and 60 men). Albumin, prealbumin (PRE), and C-reactive protein (CRP) were measured in serum samples collected before mid-week dialysis. Fruit and vegetables frequency intakes were assessed with a questionnaire. CRP was above the reference limit of 5 mg/L in 53% of patients. Moreover, the Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS) indicated the co-occurrence of inflammation and protein calorie malnutrition in 11% of patients, and the presence of either inflammation or malnutrition in 25%. The questionnaire revealed that hemodialyzed patients frequently exclude fruit and vegetables from their diets. Nearly 43% of the interviewed patients declared frequently
According to the International Federation of Renal Registries, in 1999 the prevalence of peritoneal dialysis in the United States as approximately 9.5% of patients receiving dialysis (2005 United States Renal Data Systems data indicates a prevalence of around 7.5%). Data from Europe in 1999 to 2000 (not including the United Kingdom, France or Germany) indicated peritoneal dialysis was the mode of dialysis in approximately 11.1% of dialysis patients. 2006 data from the United Kingdom indicates that more than 20% of patients on dialysis are receiving peritoneal dialysis while French and German data indicate rates of 8.1% and 4.8% respectively. More than 90% of patients with chronic renal failure/chronic kidney disease Stage 5 (End Stage Renal Disease) are anemic. The vast majority of patients receiving hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis receive erythropoiesis-stimulating agent therapy to treat their anemia.. Anemia of chronic renal failure is due to several factors, primarily the inability of the ...
Renal replacement therapy, in the form of dialysis or transplantation, is the cornerstone of management for end-stage renal disease. UK renal registry shows nearly half of those needing renal replacement therapy are treated by dialysis - predominantly by haemodialysis. Patients on renal replacement therapy have increased mortality risk compared to age matched general population. Moreover, some specific subgroups of patients on haemodialysis have increased risk of mortality than expected. The survival benefit seen in women in the general population is attenuated resulting in similar survival for men and women on haemodialysis therapy. In addition, obese individuals and those of non-Caucasian origin have better survival outcome. Though the underlying reason for these findings is not clear and is likely to be multi-factorial, it has been hypothesised that this paradox could be due to the current practice of normalising dialysis dose to total body water. A number of metabolic factors - body surface ...

BACKGROUND: Sodium prescription in patients with intradialytic hypotension remains a challenge for the attending nephrologist, as it increases dialysate conductivity in hypotension-prone patients, thereby adding to dietary sodium levels. METHODS: New sodium prescription strategies are now available, including the use of a mathematical model to compute the sodium mass to be removed during dialysis as a physiological controller. RESULTS: This review describes the sodium load of patients with end-stage renal disease on chronic hemodialysis (HD) and discusses 2 strategies to remove excess sodium in patients prone to intradialytic hypotension, namely, Profiled HD and the hemodiafiltration Aequilibrium System ...

Background Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a neurologic disorder characterized by unpleasant sensations in the legs causing an uncontrollable urge to move when at rest in an effort to relieve those feelings. Between 2-15% of the population have RLS, with a peak incidence between 40 and 60 years of age and a 1:2 male:female ratio. It occurs more frequently in end-stage renal disease patients on chronic hemodialysis (up to 60%, depending on the series), and in patients with Parkinsons disease (up to 20%) than in the general public. RLS disrupts sleep, can lead to excessive daytime sleepiness, depression, and a decreased quality of life. This Fast Fact will review its evaluation and management.. Causes The etiology of primary RLS is unknown although it is thought to be a genetic disorder involving either central or peripheral dopaminergic pathways. Common secondary causes of RLS are polyneuropathies; diabetes mellitus; rheumatologic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogrens syndrome, and ...

Gastrointestinal mucosal abnormalities ranging from edema to ulceration occur in two thirds of patients dying of uremia. Early studies suggested that uremic patients on maintenance dialysis treatment were at increased risk of peptic ulceration but more recent data indicate that this is not so. Other gastrointestinal problems reported for uremic subjects on maintenance dialysis treatment include bleeding from telangiectatic lesions, constipation, mucosal deposition of amyloid and acute pancreatitis. Nausea and vomiting are common in the uremic patient but gastric emptying studies have yielded conflicting results. Patients undergoing renal transplantation are at increased risk of development of esophagitis, complicated peptic ulcer, intestinal ulceration, and perforation as well as acute pancreatitis ...
Objective: Cerebrovascular diseases are the most common causes of morbidity and mortality. The ischemic type is the most common and most fatal o among the all cerebrovasculer diseases. In patients having silent cerebral ischemia the incidence of ischemic infarction is ten times greater than in the normal population. The treatment modalities are not efficient after the cerebral infarct has occurred. For this reason academic studies are gaining importance for the determination of risk factors, primary and secondary prophylaxis, early diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. Cerebrovascular diseases are also the most common major causes of death in hemodialysis patients. The effect of dialysis treatment and chronic renal failure disease on the development of cerebral ischemia and infarct has not been explained, In this study we analyzed the prevalence of silent cerebral ischemia and infarct in the cronic renal failure patients having hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis treatment, using magnetic ...
Background/Aims: Dialysis triggers stress reaction, matrix remodeling and endothelial damage, but little is known about the changes it induces on selected heat shock proteins (Hsp90α), adhesion molecules (E-cadherin, sE-selectin), metalloproteinases (MMP-8) and their extracellular inducer (EMMPRIN). The aim of this study was to assess serum concentrations of the above-mentioned parameters in children on chronic dialysis. Methods: 19 patients on hemodialysis (HD), 22 children on peritoneal dialysis (PD) and 30 age-matched controls were examined. Serum concentrations of parameters were assessed by ELISA. Results: Hsp90α, MMP-8, EMMPRIN and E-cadherin concentrations were significantly increased in children on dialysis vs. controls and higher levels were in HD than PD patients. There was no difference in the level of sE-selectin between HD and PD modalities. A single HD session diminished Hsp90α, MMP-8, EMMPRIN and E-cadherin values, but had no impact on sE-selectin levels. Conclusions:
This is an exciting time for the region, as for the first time, a community-based dialysis clinic will be available to patients living in the APY Lands, Ms Paterson said.. Patients will have access to brand new dialysis equipment in a clinic that will provide world-class dialysis treatment, with clinical oversight provided by nephrologists from SA Healths Rural Support Service and the Central Adelaide Local Health Network.. We know that remote patients often have to relocate from home to receive frequent dialysis treatment, and by the opening of this clinic we are hoping this will reduce. We are proud to be working with Purple House having provided funding towards the build and ongoing support for this project, to ensure we can continue to provide better support and care for South Australians living in remote areas.. Director of Dialysis and Senior Staff Nephrologist, Prof Stephen McDonald, said the clinic will provide dialysis patients the opportunity to receive safer care closer to home, ...
Ability to travel. Despite the health benefits that daily, more frequent home hemodialysis may provide to those with chronic kidney disease CKD, this form of therapy is not for everyone. The reported benefits of daily, more frequent home hemodialysis may not be experienced by all patients.. The risks associated with hemodialysis treatments in any environment include, but are not limited to, high blood pressure, fluid overload, low blood pressure, heart-related issues, and vascular access complications. The medical devices used in hemodialysis therapies may add additional risks including air entering the bloodstream, and blood loss due to clotting or accidental disconnection of the blood tubing set.. Certain risks are unique to the home. Treatments at home are done without the presence of medical personnel and on-site technical support.. Patients and their partners must be trained on what to do and how to get medical or technical help if needed.. Based on these benefits of home hemodialysis, we ...
Objective: Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients on maintenance dialysis. Diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension, inflammation and hyperhomocyteinemia are major cardiovascular risk factors. Aim: to evaluate the effects of Icodextrin and amino acid peritoneal dialysis fluid (AAPDF) on these major cardiovascular risk factors looking for a more biocompatible PDF formula. Methods: 24 adult stable peritoneal dialysis patients were included in the study. 12 patients received 2L Icodextrin and other 12 patients received 2L AAPDF in their dialysis prescription for 8 weeks. Results: Icodextrin decreased fasting plasma glucose (p < 0.001), LDL-C (p = 0.03), SBP (p < 0.01), DBP (p < 0.05) and plasma homocysteine (p = 0.002), and increased HDL-C (p = 0.009), CRP (p = 0.035) and fibrinogen (p = 0.009). AAPDF did _disibledevent= 0.03). Conclusions: A biocompatible PDF should provide not only adequate dialysis and ultrafiltration but should also improve
Hemodialysis vascular access is the lifeline for patients on hemodialysis. Unfortunately, because of its poor patency and significant complication rate, it is also the Achilles heel of hemodialysis. For example, the current unassisted arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation rate is only 40% between 6 and 9 months, and the 1-year unassisted patency for polytetrafluoroethylene grafts is 23%. Despite the magnitude of the clinical problem, relatively few new and effective therapies have been introduced into this field over the last two decades, resulting in a stagnation of vascular access care. We believe that an important barrier to developing new and effective therapies is the current lack of consensus among the different vascular access stakeholder groups (information on project structure below) regarding acceptable clinical trial end points for vascular access trials. Achieving such a consensus would result in a better defined product development pathway, which is a critical step to stimulate ...
Wu27 reported that the 2-year cumulative incidence of de novo CHD in ESRD patients undergoing chronic peritoneal (18.0%) and hemodialysis (15.0%) exceeded the 6-year cumulative incidence (12.7%) of de novo CHD among original Framingham Study participants who were also free of CHD at baseline, and by matched frequency to that of dialysis patients for the prevalence of established risk factors. In the present study, we evaluated the association between elevated fasting tHcy levels at a baseline examination and the subsequent development of CVD in a convenience sample of ESRD patients undergoing chronic dialysis therapy. Our findings provide the initial prospective evidence that the markedly elevated tHcy levels characteristically found in dialysis-dependent ESRD patients15 16 17 18 may contribute independently to the excess risk for CVD outcomes in this population. These prospective data strongly suggest that hyperhomocysteinemia warrants further study of its role as an important nontraditional ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Impact of residual renal function in children on hemodialysis. AU - Erkan, E.. AU - Moritz, M.. AU - Kaskel, F.. PY - 2001/1/1. Y1 - 2001/1/1. N2 - Residual renal function (RRF) contributes to dialysis adequacy as well as lower mortality and morbidity in dialysis patients. Even very small changes in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) account for considerable improvements in complications of dialysis. The purpose of this cross-sectional study is to determine the possible contribution of RRF to hemodialysis clearance and to compare the biochemical markers of this patient group with anuric patients. Ten patients with RRF on chronic hemodialysis for more than 6 months were enrolled in the study. Duration of dialysis was not different between the two patient populations. Average GFR was 3.4 ± 2.6 ml/min in the group with RRF. Cholesterol, albumin, and triglyceride levels were not different between the groups. Residual renal urea clearance enhanced mean Kt/V of patients from 1.29 to ...
Hemodialysis catheters are being extensively used to meet the growing demand of hemodialysis, apheresis, infusion, and monitoring of central venous pressure along with high-pressure contrast injection patients.
