BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease is associated with increased risk of mortality. We examined the impact of moderate and severe renal insufficiency (RI) on short- and long-term mortality among unselected patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS: From January 1, 2002 to December 31, 2010 all patients with STEMI treated with primary PCI were identified. The hazard ratio (HR) for death was estimated using a Cox regression model, controlling for potential confounders. RI was defined as creatinine clearance (CrCl) , 60 mL/min (moderate RI: CrCl ≤30 , 60 mL/min and severe RI: CrCl , 30 mL/min). RESULTS: The study cohort consisted of 4,116 patients of whom 898 (21.8%) had RI and 3,218 (78.2%) had a CrCl ≥ 60 mL/min. Compared to patients without RI, patients with RI were older, more often female and more likely to have diabetes mellitus, hypertension and to present with a higher Killip class.Among ...
This clinical trial is designed to provide additional information on the safety and tolerability of vildagliptin (50 mg once daily (qd)) and sitagliptin (25 mg qd) when used in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus(T2DM) and severe renal insufficiency (Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) , 30 mL/min) for a period of 52 weeks ...

November 10, 2009 - Covidien said yesterday it will voluntarily contraindicate the use of its Optimark gadoversetamide injection, a gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA), in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) procedures involving patients with severe renal impairment. The company is modifying the products label to reflect a contraindication for this small patient population, which constitutes less than 0.5 percent of the U.S. population. Mallinckrodt Inc., a Covidien company, has submitted this label change to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is implementing the new label in the United States effective immediately. The revised label contraindicates the products use in patients with acute or chronic severe renal insufficiency (glomerular filtration rate of less than 30 mL/min/1.73m2) or acute renal insufficiency of any severity due to hepato-renal syndrome or in the perioperative liver transplant period.. The company is implementing this label change in all other countries where ...
useInGender=The pharmacokinetics of posaconazole are comparable in men and women. No adjustment in the dosage of Noxafil is necessary based on gender. ,useInRace=The pharmacokinetic profile of posaconazole is not significantly affected by race. No adjustment in the dosage of Noxafil is necessary based on race. ,useInRenalImpair=* Following single-dose administration of 400 mg of the oral suspension, there was no significant effect of mild (eGFR: 50-80 mL/min/1.73 m2, n=6) or moderate (eGFR: 20-49 mL/min/1.73 m2, n=6) renal impairment on posaconazole pharmacokinetics; therefore, no dose adjustment is required in patients with mild to moderate renal impairment. In subjects with severe renal impairment (eGFR: ,20 mL/min/1.73 m2), the mean plasma exposure (AUC) was similar to that in patients with normal renal function (eGFR: ,80 mL/min/1.73 m2); however, the range of the AUC estimates was highly variable (CV=96%) in these subjects with severe renal impairment as compared to that in the other renal ...
Background: Reduced renal function (FX) increases CV morbidity and mortality by unclear mechanisms. We previously reported that mild reductions in renal FX produced by unilateral nephrectomy (NX) increase myocardial collagen content and induce alterations in LV gene profiles in the absence of hypertension (HTN) or volume overload (VO) Here we hypothesize that such alterations progress and result in diastolic and systolic impairment.. Methods: Cardiorenal FX and structure were assessed in Wistar rats, sham (S) at 4 weeks (wk; n=10) and at 16 wk (n=10) and also at 4 wk (n=9) and 16 wk (n=9) after NX. At 4wk GFR, Na and water excretion, plasma BNP, plasma renin activity (PRA), and aldosterone (Aldo) were assessed. By echo, LV mass, EF, circumferential systolic strain (Cs), early (Csr-E) and late (Csr-A) diastolic strain rates and ratio were assessed by echo speckle tracking. Cardiac fibrosis by picrosirius red staining was also determined.. Results: At 4wk glomerular hypertrophy was observed in NX ...

Octogenarians represent an increasing proportion of patients presenting to cardiac catheterization laboratories around the country (2,13). Previous studies have reported a higher rate of ischemic complications after PCI in older patients (6). This is presumably a manifestation of associated comorbidities (14), including peripheral vascular disease, renal insufficiency, and anemia. In this study, 23%, 16%, and 6% of patients had peripheral vascular disease, severe renal insufficiency (creatinine clearance ≤30 cc/min), and severe anemia (hematocrit ≤30%), respectively. In addition to the higher prevalence of comorbidities in the elderly, arteries are prone to age-related changes such as medial calcification, more extensive atherosclerosis, dilation, tortuosity, and impairment of endothelial function. These factors contribute to a decline in procedural success and higher ischemic and bleeding complications with PCI in the elderly.. Glycoprotein inhibitor treatment plays a key role in the ...

The medicines have side effects, another group of drug problems. Some of May, the side effects of medication errors, while others are a danger to the inevitable use of drugs in an appropriate manner. An example of a drug, the adverse reaction to a mistake is the use of aminoglycosides or other nephrotoxic drugs concomitant medication in patients with moderate renal insufficiency, which leads to a deterioration of renal function. The "error" component on the situation between gentamicin, if the therapy is not justified. Another example concerns the administration of a derivative of penicillin to a patient with a history of immediate hypersensitivity reactions.. A medication error to use a drug without examining a contraindication or a particular threat to individual cases. If your doctor is aware of contraindicated or who have a particular risk and makes a decision for the drug from the benefits and risks, so there is an error of drugs.

The MDRD equation is a modified, 4-variable version of the original equation (MDRD4), and has been shown to provide similar GFR results compared to its 6-variable predecessor. This equation, based on plasma creatinine, age, sex, and race, has been validated in the MDRD study sample, and is now recommended by NKF and National Kidney Disease Education Program (NKDEP) for calculating GFR in patients with a history of CKD risk factors and a GFR ,60 mL/min/1.73m2. The performance of MDRD6, and more recently the MDRD4, has been assessed in a variety of patient populations. In renal transplant patients with severe renal insufficiency (CLcr ,30 mL/min/1.73m2), the MDRD6 equation was highly correlated with mean CLcr and urea clearances, less biased, and more precise than the Cockcroft-Gault (CG) equation. However, this equation was less accurate than CG in healthy subjects, diabetic patients with normal GFR (88-182 mL/min/1.73m2), and healthy potential kidney donors. The MDRD equation should not be used ...

I was first diagnosed with renal insufficiency in the mid-2000s. After being actively monitored for several years, I eventually started on PD. This was replaced by HD when PD proved to be not working sufficiently well. So, three times a week I spend the morning in the Stoke Mandeville Renal Unit. In May 2015 I had a caveric transplant which sadly failed. I was never able to stop HD. I am currently on the cadaveric and paired donor waiting lists.. In addition to my role as Chair of Stoke Mandeville Branch, I am currently helping to refurbish this website.". ...
