  • Health Technology Assessment in nephrology and dialysis

    • Authors: Stefano Cabula, Elisabetta Frongia, Francesco Burrai, Francesca Mura, Maurizio Marcias
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: The nephrology and dialysis sector is characterized by a high technological content, considerable technological and digital complexity, continuous innovation within the care processes and a strong economic impact on the national and regional health system. The purpose of this article is to illustrate the application of the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) methodology in the evaluation of technological innovations in the nephrology and dialysis field. In particular, the evaluation steps of the multidimensional and multidisciplinary process applied to the nephrodialysis field will be described, specifically a device to be used in patients with chronic kidney disease, also considering important comorbidities such as cardiomyopathies and arrhythmias, which often require implantation of electronic cardiac implantable devices in renal patients. The HTA uses a rigorous scientific methodology, and today represents an essential tool for a governance of the modern health system, in which every innovative technological element that significantly modifies the organization must be evaluated. For this strategic reason, HTA becomes an important intervention for the dialysis sector, where technological innovations are a fundamental sector. For a precise understanding of the function of HTA in dialysis, a complete example of the application of HTA for the evaluation of a resorbable antibacterial device for the prevention of infections from cardiac implantable electronic devices on patients with high infectious risk has been shown, such as patients with chronic kidney disease.

  • TikTok e l’informazione sanitaria

    • Authors: Giuseppe Quintaliani, Maria Rinaldi Miliani, Claudia Savignani
      Pages: 9 - 12
      Abstract: We explore the utility of social media platforms as educational tools, providing a summary of how these sites are used by the public and demonstrating ways these findings may be applied for educational purposes. Over half of the world’s population utilizes social media platforms. More recently, these platforms have increasingly been used for educational purposes. In the field of health, a large portion of the educational content is coming from users with no formal medical or dermatologic training. In nephrology field there are not TikTok accounts. It would be useful to have an institutional account to provide serious, correct and appropriate information before others spread incorrect information.

  • Renal transplant patients: Review of Italian legislation

    • Authors: Patrizia Babini, Marco Lombardi, Vito Sparacino, Giuseppe Vanacore
      Pages: 22 - 25
      Abstract: Organ transplantation is a life-saving procedure that can significantly improve the quality of life for patients suffering from organ failure. However, the procurement and transplantation of organs involves complex legal and ethical issues. Italy is not an exception, as the country has faced several challenges related to organ transplantation. The article provides an overview of the regulatory framework governing organ transplantation in Italy, focusing on patients’ needs.

  • Are human health and environmental health inextricably linked'

    • Authors: David Mariani
      Pages: 26 - 28
      Abstract: ONE HEALTH approach, coined by FAO, perfectly sums up a concept that is strongly emerging in the international scientific community. The environment (especially greenery and trees) plays a decisive role in human health and in wellbeing. A change in the development model that takes these issues into account, starting with the design of greener and more sustainable cities, appears necessary and urgent, given that in 2050 approximately 70% of the world’s population will live in large cities.

  • Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) for quantifying cyst
           volume and characterizing non-cystic tissue in polycystic kidney disease:
           the Mario Negri experience

    • Authors: Ariela Benigni
      Pages: 34 - 35
      Abstract: Beyond total kidney and cyst volume, non-cystic tissue plays an important role in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) progression. Recent advancements in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offer the possibility to study kidney microstructure and function, beyond anatomy. In particular, Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI), a MRI technique sensitive to water molecule motion (diffusion) in biological tissues, allows to investigate microstructure. This study, recently published in the European Radiology scientific journal, proposes and preliminary validates a novel method to segment cystic and non-cystic volume on DWI scans from ADPKD patients. The study also provides evidence of DWI potential in characterizing non-cystic kidney tissue, denoted by higher diffusion and lower perfusion than healthy tissue, in line with its fibrotic nature and the likely presence of microcysts. Overall, this study provides evidence in support of DWI potential in ADPKD. DWI could complement existing biomarkers for noninvasively staging, monitoring, and predicting ADPKD progression and evaluating the impact of novel therapies, possibly targeting damaged non-cystic tissue besides cyst expansion.

  • Renal transplant: gender differences

    • Authors: Anna Laura Fantuzzi, Elisa Berri, Lida Tartaglione, Rossella Giannini, Sara Dominjanni , Silvia Porreca
      Pages: 45 - 50
      Abstract: Renal transplantation represents the best treatment for end-stage kidney disease, leading to improved quality of life and life-expectancy for most of the patients. However, gender disparities are evident both in access and in outcomes of kidney transplantation. Women on dialysis are less likely to be on the waiting list for kidney transplantation and to receive an organ from a deceased donor or living donor. Several biological and sociocultural aspects could explain this disparity. On the contrary, more women than men are living kidney donors. Italian women are the first organ donors for living transplants in Europe. The gender difference in living donation is certainly affected by different comorbidities, but such a marked trend highlights a greater predisposition to donate of women, especially in the family context. Some differences are also found in kidney outcomes, even not fully understood. Our paper analyzes the main differences in different aspects of kidney transplantation related to gender, including nutritional aspects.
