      Authors: Ai-Hua Zhang, Wei-Kang Guo, Dong-Wan Han, Min Zhu, Wen-Hu Liu
      Abstract: Vascular calcification (VC) and myocardial hypertrophy are very common in patients on hemodialysis (HD). Previous studies have only assessed the cross-sectional associations of VC with left ventricular mass (LVM) and the predictive value of individual factors. The present study investigated the relationship between abdominal aortic calcification (AAC) and LVM increment over time, and the combined effect of these factors on the outcomes of HD patients. 104 HD patients were enrolled. AAC scores...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Shyam Dheda, Hongjin Min, David A Vesey, Carmel Hawley, David W Johnson, Goce Dimeski, Helen Healy, Magid Fahim
      Abstract: CONCLUSION: Pre-dialysis levels of inflammation are prevalent in the hemodialysis population after the long break but are not related to intradialytic BP variability or hypotension in the preceding 2 weeks. However, endotoxemia is uncommon and unlikely to be a significant driver of inflammation.

      Authors: Khaled Al-Sawalmeh, Michael Pandes, Jose Antonio Niño, Carmen Avila-Casado
      Abstract: Fibrillary glomerulonephritis (FGN) is a rare glomerular disease manifesting with proteinuria, renal impairment, hematuria, hypertension, and in a very small proportion can be associated with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis and, rarely, crescent formation. The main modality for diagnosis is kidney biopsy, which ultrastructurally demonstrates randomly arranged non-branching mesangial and glomerular basement membrane (GBM) fibrils and positive staining for the biomarker DNAJB9. The...

      Authors: Sibel Yucel Kocak, Arzu Ozdemir
      Abstract: CONCLUSION: Prevalence of OP and osteopenia are high in dialysis patients, with no difference between patients on regular HD and PD. Bone mass loss is related to older age, higher BMI, and lower serum albumin level. DEXA measurement is necessary to monitor bone loss and timely treatment of OP in dialysis patients.

      Authors: Drew A Wells, Kayla Washington, Brandon Cave, Rongshun Zhu, Joanna Q Hudson
      Abstract: CONCLUSION: Appropriate dosing of GPs is particularly important to minimize the risk of adverse events in patients of older age, with a history of seizures, or concomitant antipsychotic use. There is a need for prescriber education given the high frequency of inappropriate GP dosing observed in patients with advanced kidney disease.

      Abstract: Monoclonal immunoglobulin (MIg)-associated glomerular diseases with non-organized deposits are rare disorders. They have recently been categorized into light chain deposit disease (LCDD), light and heavy chain deposit disease (LHCDD), heavy chain deposit disease (HCDD), proliferative glomerulonephritis with MIg deposits (PGNMID) and its light chain only variant (PGNMID-LC), and membranous glomerulopathy with light chain-restricted deposits (MG-LC).

      Authors: Maxime Taghavi, Maria Mesquita, Cristina David, Caroline Geers, Agnieszka Pozdzik, Joëlle Nortier
      Abstract: Acute granulomatous tubulointerstitial nephritis (GTIN) is a rare finding in renal biopsy. Differential diagnosis is facilitated when GTIN is associated with granulomatous bilateral anterior uveitis (GBAU). Nevertheless, differentiation between a rare form of granulomatous tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis syndrome (TINU) and sarcoidosis can be challenging. We report a case of biopsy-proven GTIN with concomitant GBAU, leading to a dead-end diagnosis. We discuss workup and propose a...

      Authors: Hanyuan Gao, Guangjian Liu, Yuangfang He, Jinhai Chen
      Abstract: Long-term exposure to mercury-containing skin lightening cream can cause mercury-related nephropathy, among which, membranous nephropathy (MN) and minimal change disease (MCD) are the main pathological types. In contrast to these two conditions, MCD with IgA deposition is not a common disease. In the present study, we report a 65-year-old Asian woman who developed nephrotic syndrome following long-term use of mercury-containing skin lightening cream. The urine mercury level of the patient was...

      Abstract: Malignant prolactinomas are very rare and are diagnosed when a prolactin-producing pituitary adenoma has metastasized. We report on a 54-year-old man with a history of macroprolactinoma transforming into a pituitary carcinoma secreting both prolactin and growth hormone with metastases to the stomach, bone, lungs, retroperitoneum, and kidney. Reviewing the literature, this case is the first reporting of a pituitary carcinoma with biopsy-proven paraneoplastic cast nephropathy. Symptoms and renal...

      Abstract: CONCLUSION: The addition of surveillance dd-cfDNA testing resulted in marginal added benefit. Whether this offsets the cost of testing needs to be further explored. In our cohort of low-risk patients, the cost of protocol dd-cfDNA testing may not be justified by its limited benefits.

      Abstract: CONCLUSION: Since tCO(2) did not show good agreement with HCO(3)^(-), relying solely on the pre-dialysis tCO(2) values to define metabolic acidosis may increase misclassification rate. More work is needed for optimal assessment of acid-base status. Also, understanding the determinants of HCO(3)^(-) may guide physicians for individualized HCO(3)^(-) prescription.

      Authors: Jing Lei, Yue Jiang, Dajun Liu, Ping He
      Abstract: Spontaneous renal artery dissection refers to endarterial dissection of the renal artery that occurs with unknown cause. Herein, we describe a 45-year-old woman who presented with pain in her right flank and abdomen together with elevated blood pressure and hypokalemia. We made the diagnosis of an enhanced renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and obtained enhanced abdominal computed tomography images, which showed right renal artery dissection with a large false lumen and narrowed true lumen....

      Authors: Yide Yang, Xiuqin Hong, Jian Li, Ming Xie, Yanhui Dong, Zhiyong Zou, Chanjuan Zheng, Christoph Reichetzeder, Bernhard K Krämer, Yuan Lv, Berthold Hocher
      Abstract: Famine exposure in early life was associated with cardiovascular diseases in later life. Whether biochemical surrogates of cardiovascular diseases, such as homocysteine and uric acid, are also associated with famine exposure is unknown so far. Data were derived from a population-based cross-sectional study in the Hunan Province of China, which was heavily affected by the Famine in 1959 - 1961. A total of 1,150 adults born between 1952 and 1964 were selected, and 5 cohorts were defined: no...

      Abstract: The high burden of kidney disease, global disparities in kidney care, and poor outcomes of kidney failure bring a concomitant growing burden to persons affected, their families, and carers, and the community at large. Health literacy is the degree to which persons and organizations have or equitably enable individuals to have the ability to find, understand, and use information and services to make informed health-related decisions and actions for themselves and others.

      Abstract: CONCLUSION: Calcitriol was effective in preventing secondary hyperparathyroidism and high-turnover bone disease. However, it was associated with an increased risk of developing or aggravating low-turnover bone disease. In the absence of a bone biopsy, calcitriol use in pre-dialysis CKD should be reserved for patients with a progressive rise in iPTH levels, in whom high-turnover bone disease is suspected.

      Abstract: Deletions involving the TSC2 and PKD1 genes lead to tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), which is known as TSC2-PKD1 contiguous gene deletion syndrome (PKDTS). PKDTS leads to severe symptoms and death. There are few reported cases of PKDTS, the phenotypic descriptions are poor, and detailed statistics and descriptions of the time of onset and prognosis of PKDTS are lacking. This is the first study to report on the clinical data of PKDTS...

      Abstract: CONCLUSION: Results indicate a significantly reduced cardiopulmonary endurance capacity and functional walk ability among Chinese patients on MHD. Moreover, 6MWT may not be a proper method to evaluate the cardiopulmonary endurance capacity of patients on MHD due to the absence of a correlation between 6MWT distance and oxygen uptake during exercise.

      Abstract: CONCLUSION: SRCA is safe, simple, and effective in hemodialysis. The dosage of citrate can be adjusted by monitoring serum Ca^(2+) at 2 hours post-filter during dialysis. BFR of 200 mL/min, dialysate flow rate of 500 mL/min, and 1.5 mmol/L calcium dialysate are much safer in hemodialysis patients with a high-risk of bleeding.
