  • Hypertension in Children and Adolescents
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Joshua A. Samuels, Ana S. Zavala, Jennifer M. Kinney, Cynthia S. BellHypertension is a growing problem in children and adolescents, with primary hypertension becoming the most common etiology. In addition to demonstrating that high blood pressure in children and young adults is likely to remain elevated into adulthood, this review (1) addresses important aspects of measuring blood pressure in children and adolescents, (2) defines elevated blood pressure and hypertension in this age group, (3) describes the initial evaluation and workup of abnormally high blood pressure, and (4) introduces treatment strategies for youth with sustained hypertension.
       
  • Hypertension and Pregnancy: Management and Future Risks
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Snigdha Reddy, Belinda JimPregnancy-induced hypertension is a major cause of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. The overall strategies of defining and managing these conditions are aimed at preventing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications in the mother without jeopardizing fetal well-being. Our understanding of the origin of these disorders is evolving. Women with chronic hypertension should undergo a prepregnancy evaluation and close monitoring during and after pregnancy to ensure medication safety and to prevent end-organ damage. Based on available data, the current recommendation is that antihypertensive therapy should be initiated only in women with severe hypertension (defined as systolic blood pressure ≥160 mm Hg and/or diastolic blood pressure ≥105 mm Hg). It is now becoming more and more clear that hypertensive complications during pregnancy are potentially linked to cardiovascular, kidney, and metabolic diseases later in life. This review discusses the spectrum of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, general management principles, and the need to monitor for long-term cardiovascular sequelae for decades afterward.
       
  • The Impact of APOL1 on Chronic Kidney Disease and Hypertension
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Todd W. Robinson, Barry I. FreedmanEssential hypertension is a clinical diagnosis based on the presence of an elevated systemic blood pressure on physical examination without a clear inciting cause. It has multiple etiologies and is not a homogeneous disorder. Hypertension contributes to the development and progression of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases, and antihypertensive treatment reduces the risk of fatal and nonfatal myocardial infarction, stroke, and congestive heart failure. Although hypertension is frequently present in nondiabetic individuals with low levels of proteinuria and chronic kidney disease, reducing blood pressures in this population does not reliably slow nephropathy progression. Many of these patients with recent African ancestry have the primary kidney disease “solidified glomerulosclerosis” that is strongly associated with renal-risk variants in the apolipoprotein L1 gene (APOL1). This kidney disease contributes to secondarily elevated blood pressures. The APOL1-associated spectrum of nondiabetic nephropathy also includes proteinuric kidney diseases, idiopathic focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, collapsing glomerulopathy, severe lupus nephritis, and sickle cell nephropathy. This article reviews relationships between mild to moderate essential hypertension and chronic kidney disease with a focus on the role of APOL1 in development of hypertension. Available evidence strongly supports that APOL1 renal-risk variants associate with glomerulosclerosis in African Americans, which then causes secondary hypertension, not with essential hypertension per se.
       
  • Inflammation, Immunity, and Oxidative Stress in
           Hypertension—Partners in Crime'
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Ian R. Barrows, Ali Ramezani, Dominic S. RajHypertension is considered as the most common risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Inflammatory processes link hypertension and cardiovascular disease, and participate in their pathophysiology. In recent years, there has been an increase in research focused on unraveling the role of inflammation and immune activation in development and maintenance of hypertension. Although inflammation is known to be associated with hypertension, whether inflammation is a cause or effect of hypertension remains to be elucidated. This review describes the recent studies that link inflammation and hypertension and demonstrate the involvement of oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction—two of the key processes in the development of hypertension. Etiology of hypertension, including novel immune cell subtypes, cytokines, toll-like receptors, inflammasomes, and gut microbiome, found to be associated with inflammation and hypertension are summarized and discussed. Most recent findings in this field are presented with special emphasis on potential of anti-inflammatory drugs and statins for treatment of hypertension.
       
  • Treating Hypertension Using Renal Artery Denervation: Problems and
           Progress
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Raymond R. TownsendEarly reports of renal denervation as a therapy for hypertension generated intense interest in this approach to management of elevated blood pressures despite ongoing treatment. The publication of the large, sham-controlled randomized clinical trial of renal denervation, Symplicity HTN-3, failed to show superiority of renal denervation by radiofrequency energy ablation compared with a sham procedure similar to the procedure used for denervation but without the application of energy to the renal artery. This prompted consideration of confounding factors and rethinking about the protocol and the procedure itself. This review describes these confounders and the progress made to improve trial design in the field of renal artery denervation.
       
  • How Low Do We Go (in the Post-SPRINT Era)'
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Anna Burgner, Julia B. LewisHypertension is frequently both a cause and complication of CKD. The optimal blood pressure target in CKD has been of hot debate over the decades with little data to inform the goals. Here, we review the data from the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT), Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD), African American Study of Kidney Disease and Hypertension (AASK), Ramipril Efficacy in Nephropathy-2 (REIN-2), and Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD) trials to use the available evidence to better inform what blood pressure goal should be recommended in patients with CKD and to answer the question “How low should we go'”.
       
  • Resistant Hypertension: Diagnosis and Management
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Nagalakshmi Nagarajan, Diana JalalResistant hypertension is defined as high blood pressure requiring 3 or more medications for adequate control or controlled blood pressure requiring 4 or more medications. Considering the growing prevalence of hypertension and the strong link with cardiovascular disease, it is vital to understand the causes and treatment of resistant hypertension. This review article starts with an overview of the prevalence and little-known pathophysiology of resistant hypertension. Afterward, we discuss the evaluation and management of suspected secondary resistant hypertension in 2 broad categories: pseudoresistant hypertension and true resistant hypertension. Strategies for the identification and management of pseudoresistant hypertension are addressed. In addition, causes of true resistant hypertension, such as obstructive sleep apnea, primary aldosteronism, and renal artery stenosis, are examined along with their respective treatments. Finally, treatment of resistant hypertension is reviewed including pharmacologic treatments and novel procedural interventions for resistant hypertension. Overall, the review hopes to provide practitioners with a cohesive approach for the diagnosis and treatment of resistant hypertension.
       
  • Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring: Profiles in Chronic Kidney Disease
           Patients and Utility in Management
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Nabeel Aslam, Samardia Missick, William HaleyOptimal control of blood pressure (BP) may reduce the risk of progression of CKD. Misclassification of hypertension (HTN) and status of control may result in suboptimal management. Clinic or home BP may overestimate or underestimate status of control compared with ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM), which is considered the gold standard. The latter relates not only to the superiority of ABPM concerning outcome prognosis but also to its ability to accurately diagnose white coat and masked HTN, which is critical in assuring adequate BP control. However, ABPM has not gained widespread use in practice because of limited third-party reimbursement and a paucity of high quality randomized controlled intervention studies evaluating its use. Herein, we review HTN phenotypes that have been identified in patients with CKD, and the potential value of ABPM in this high-risk population.
       
  • Assessment of Blood Pressure: Techniques and Implications From Clinical
           Trials
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Dia R. Waguespack, Jamie P. DwyerHypertension is a global health problem and without adequate diagnosis and treatment is a risk factor for morbidity and mortality. Proper assessment of blood pressure is key to diagnosis and management of hypertension. Different methods of measurement are available for use and varying techniques are applied to patient care. Understanding the proper methods of blood pressure measurement both in and out of the physician's office is crucial for providing appropriate care to an individual patient. In addition, understanding the techniques used in research, on which current guidelines are based, is critical for proper application to daily practice. In this article, we review the types of blood pressure measurement techniques, discuss the benefits and limitations to each, explore future technological advances in measurement devices, and provide insight into research techniques, which ultimately guide our practice.

  • Vaccination in Chronic Kidney Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): Snigdha Reddy, Chandrika Chitturi, Jerry YeeInfections after cardiovascular disease are the second most common cause of death in the chronic kidney disease population. Vaccination is an important component of maintaining health and wellness in patients with kidney disease. There is a changing epidemiologic landscape for several vaccine-preventable illnesses from childhood to adulthood and unfounded public perception of safety concerns. Several mechanisms have been proposed to cause inadequate vaccine protection in this high-risk group with chronic kidney disease. These have led to recent advances in new designs for vaccination strategies in kidney disease. In this article, we discuss the current evidence and recommendations for vaccination in those with kidney disease and needing renal replacement therapy (dialysis and transplant).
       
  • Antibiotic Dosing in Chronic Kidney Disease and End-Stage Renal Disease: A
           Focus on Contemporary Challenges
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): A. Mary VilayInfections are an important cause of morbidity and mortality among patients with chronic kidney disease. Therefore, appropriate antibiotic dosing is imperative to achieve positive patient outcomes while minimizing antibiotic dose-related toxicity. Accurately assessing renal function and determining the influence of renal replacement therapy on antibiotic clearance makes drug dosing in this patient population challenging. Furthermore, as technological advances in hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis occur, research incorporating newer dialysis parameters to guide drug dosing may not be readily available. Currently, there are limited data to guide drug dosing in the setting of automated peritoneal dialysis, short daily hemodialysis, and nocturnal hemodialysis. Antibiotic-dosing recommendations should be carefully evaluated considering the accuracy of the renal function assessment, the similarity of the operating characteristics of the renal replacement therapy studied compared with those being used, and whether the dosing strategy takes advantage of the pharmacodynamic profile of the antibiotic under consideration. After implementing the antibiotic-dosing regimen, therapeutic drug monitoring should occur when possible along with careful monitoring for antibiotic efficacy and safety.
       
  • Prevention and Treatment of Multidrug-Resistant Organisms in End-Stage
           Renal Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): John K. Midturi, Sangeetha RanganathChronic kidney disease patients are at high risk for infections because of multidrug-resistant organisms. Infections are the second most common cause of death in patients with ESRD. Patients with ESRD are prone to infections given alterations in immunity, increased rates of colonization with multidrug-resistant organisms, increased hospitalizations, and interactions with health care systems. Infections range from urinary tract infections, pneumonia, skin and soft tissue infections, central line–associated bloodstream infections to sepsis. A coordinated collaborative effort using a multipronged approach must be stressed to reduce the burden of infections. Preventive measures such as hand hygiene, antibiotic stewardship, immunizations, and minimizing central venous catheters are critical to curtail infections with multidrug-resistant organisms. Empirical and targeted treatment for multidrug-resistant organisms may require collaboration with infectious disease providers to improve outcomes in these serious infections. It is imperative to address multidrug-resistant organisms in ESRD patients at this juncture to improve medical outcomes now and for the future.
       
  • Pathophysiology and Treatment of Hepatitis B and C Infections in Patients
           With End-Stage Renal Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): Vivek Soi, Chantale Daifi, Jerry Yee, Elizabeth AdamsAn in-depth understanding of viral hepatitis is important to the care of patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis. Both hepatitis B and C viruses are acquired through hematogenous spread and can lead to horizontal transmission. Concurrent hepatic and renal injuries have ominous outcomes with significant morbidity. Hepatitis B incidence has decreased through practices including vaccination of nonimmune individuals and isolation of patients with the disease. The pathogenesis of hepatitis B leads to various symptoms and serologic changes with unique temporal associations dictating an acute or chronic presentation. Chronic hepatitis B develops when there is persistence of surface antigen for more than 6 months. Occult hepatitis B is an enigmatic form of the chronic disease where viral DNA is present despite the patient remaining seronegative. Nucleoside analogs are used as a treatment for individuals with hepatitis B who have comorbid CKD; however, the mainstay of infection control relies on immunization. Hepatitis C, an RNA virus, has increased in prevalence. Strict universal precautions with sound infection-control practices are important to prevent seroconversion. Recent therapeutic advances involving the development of direct-acting antiviral agents have broadened treatment options for patients with renal impairment and hepatitis C, offering the potential for a definitive cure. Controversy on the timeliness of treatment for transplant options has also risen with the advent of these newer therapies. We review the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and updates in treatment of these viral entities as they relate to the hemodialysis population.
       
  • Mycobacterial Infections in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease and
           Kidney Transplantation
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): Lizbeth J. Cahuayme-Zuniga, Karen B. BrustPatients with chronic kidney disease have impaired immunity that increases their risk of infection. Increased incidence of mycobacterial infections, in particular Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is described in patients undergoing hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis as well as after kidney transplantation in low-prevalence and high-prevalence settings. Diagnosis of this infection can be challenging because of atypical presentations that may lead to treatment delay and, consequently, increased mortality; however, recent advances in molecular testing have improved diagnostic accuracy. It is imperative to try to identify those patients at increased risk and offer adequate prophylaxis. There are controversies and insufficient data regarding treatment agents, duration, and dosages. Most studies in nontuberculous mycobacteria are based on case series and retrospective studies.
       
  • Clostridioides difficile Infection in Chronic Kidney
           Disease/End-Stage Renal Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): Mayur S. Ramesh, Jerry YeeClostridioides difficile infection (CDI) is a major health-care burden and increasingly seen in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Increased antibiotic use, alteration in host defenses, and gastric acid suppression are some of the etiologies for increased risk of CDI in these populations. Patients with CKD/ESRD have a higher risk of initial episode, recurrence, and development of severe CDI than those without CKD or ESRD. Diagnosis and management of CDI in patients with CKD/ESRD are similar to that in the general population. The mortality, length of stay, and health-care costs are higher in patients with CDI and CKD/ESRD. Antimicrobial stewardship with reduction in antibiotic use along with infection-control measures such as contact isolation and hand hygiene with soap and water is essential in the control and prevention of CDI in patients with CKD/ESRD.
       
  • Peritoneal Dialysis Access Associated Infections
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): Scott Bieber, Rajnish MehrotraInfection is a significant driver of morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing maintenance dialysis. In the United States, septicemia and other infections account for 8% deaths in patients undergoing dialysis. In patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD), PD-related peritonitis remains the most frequent treatment-related infection and is the greatest contributor to infection-related morbidity, including risk for hospitalization, and temporary or permanent transfer to hemodialysis. In the 4 decades since the introduction of ambulatory PD in clinical practice, a large number of treatment innovations have been shown to be effective in reducing the risk for exit site infection and PD-related peritonitis. Notwithstanding the evidence for efficacy of these innovations and the numerous adverse health consequences with PD-related peritonitis, the uptake of these interventions in clinical practice around the world remains inconsistent. This article reviews current knowledge with regards to prevention of PD-associated infections, and the diagnosis and management of exit site infections and peritonitis.
       
  • Current Concepts in Hemodialysis Vascular Access Infections
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): Lalathaksha Kumbar, Jerry YeeInfection-related causes are second only to cardiovascular events for mortality among end-stage renal disease patients. This review will provide an overview of hemodialysis catheter-, graft-, and fistula-related infections with emphasis on diagnosis and management in specific settings. Use of catheters at the initiation of dialysis has remained unchanged at 80%. Of all access-related bloodstream infections (BSIs), 70% occur in patients with catheters. The risk factors for BSIs in tunneled, cuffed catheters include the duration of the catheter, past catheter-related bacteremia, left-sided internal jugular vein catheters, hypoalbuminemia, and immunosuppression. Surprisingly, human immunodeficiency virus infection has not been associated with a higher risk of catheter-related bacteremia. Catheter-related bloodstream infection is a clinical definition that requires specific laboratory testing to identify the catheter as the source of the BSI. A central line–associated bloodstream infection is a primary BSI in a patient who had a catheter within the 48-h period before the development of the BSI with no other identifiable source. Guidewire exchange of catheter is a viable alternative in select patients to aid in preserving venous access sites. Catheter lock therapy can decrease infectious complications and mortality. Arteriovenous graft infections are prevalent with significant morbidity. Studies evaluating the impact of stent use in infection risks of the arteriovenous graft are sorely needed.
       
  • Immune Dysfunction and Risk of Infection in Chronic Kidney Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): Maaz Syed-Ahmed, Mohanram NarayananCardiovascular disease and infections are directly or indirectly associated with an altered immune response, which leads to a high incidence of morbidity and mortality, and together, they account for up to 70% of all deaths among patients with chronic kidney dysfunction. Impairment of the normal reaction of the innate and adaptive immune systems in chronic kidney disease predisposes patients to an increased risk of infections, virus-associated cancers, and a diminished vaccine response. On the other hand, an abnormal, exaggerated reaction of the immune systems can also occur in this group of patients, resulting in increased production and decreased clearance of proinflammatory cytokines, which can lead to inflammation and its sequelae (eg, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease). Epigenetically, modifications in hematopoietic stem cells involving a shift from lymphoid to myeloid cell lineage may underlie uremia-associated immunological senescence, which is not reversed by renal replacement therapy, including kidney transplantation. Measures aimed at attenuating the immune abnormalities in chronic kidney disease/end-stage renal disease should be an area of focused research as this could potentially lead to a better understanding and, thus, development of therapies that could reduce the disastrously high death rate in this patient population. The aim of the present article is to review the characteristics, causes, and mechanisms of the immune dysfunction related to chronic kidney disease.
