Removal of middle molecules with medium cutoff dialyzer in patients on short frequent hemodialysis.

Thiago Reis, Francesca Martino, Priscila Dias, Geraldo R R de Freitas, Evandro R da Silva Filho, Maria L C de Azevedo, Fábio Reis, Mario Cozzolino, Lilia Rizo-Topete, Claudio Ronco,

INTRODUCTION:Medium cutoff (MCO) membranes for hemodialysis (HD) remove more effectively large middle molecules than high-flux (HF) membranes. In patients on in-center short frequent HD regimen (5 sessions per week, 2 hours and 30 minutes per session) the effect of MCO on middle weight uremic toxins has not been elucidated. METHODS:This retrospective study ... Read more >>

Roberto Scarpioni, Marco Ricardi, Alessandra Manini, Paola Chiappini, Laura Ballocchi, Vittorio Albertazzi, Sara DeAmicis, Luigi Melfa, Chiara Rocca, Teresa Valsania, Valentina Blanco, Chiara Fenocchio,

INTRODUCTION:Over the last decades, the number of elderly patients on dialysis has rapidly grown on account of increased life expectancy, improved care and reduced mortality rate. Therefore, cooperation between geriatricians and nephrologists has become mandatory for co-managing kidney disease in these patients. Based on renewed interest in home hemodialysis (HHD), ...

The impact of the Christmas holiday effect on interdialytic weight gain in hemodialysis patients: A multicenter observational retrospective cohort study.

Edward Zimbudzi, Peter G Kerr,

INTRODUCTION:The 3-day interdialytic interval (IDI) is associated with high interdialytic weight gain (IDWG), but little is known about the effect of public or religious holidays on IDWG. Consequently, we evaluated the impact of the "Christmas holiday effect" on IDWG of hemodialysis patients. METHODS:A retrospective cohort study of adult hemodialysis patients ... Read more >>

Pilot study to reduce interdialytic weight gain by provision of low-sodium, home-delivered meals in hemodialysis patients.

Luis M Perez, Hsin-Yu Fang, Sadia-Anjum Ashrafi, Brett T Burrows, Alexis C King, Ryan J Larsen, Bradley P Sutton, Kenneth R Wilund,

INTRODUCTION:Patients with kidney failure undergoing maintenance hemodialysis (HD) therapy are routinely counseled to reduce dietary sodium intake to ameliorate sodium retention, volume overload, and hypertension. However, low-sodium diet trials in HD are sparse and indicate that dietary education and behavioral counseling are ineffective in reducing sodium intake. This study aimed ... Read more >>

Patient reactions to witnessed medical events in the dialysis center or to the sudden absence of other patients from the center: A qualitative study.

Sarah J Ramer, M Carrington Reid, Mark L Unruh,

INTRODUCTION:Patients receiving in-center maintenance hemodialysis (HD) spend a significant amount of time together. To date, little or no research has examined how these patients perceive and process other patients' medical events in and absences from their centers. We therefore undertook this qualitative study using semi-structured interviews to explore these phenomena ... Read more >>

Krzysztof Letachowicz, Tomasz Gołębiowski, Marcin Miś, Michał Wolańczyk, Sławomir Zmonarski, Magdalena Krajewska,

Infections and dysfunction are the most common complications related to catheter use. Here we describe a case of catheter rupture on the course of subcutaneous channel. Catheter fractures are relatively rare, but potentially hazardous complications. In case of partial breakage, a catheter exchange should be a simple solution. ... Read more >>

An easy way to remove a stuck hemodialysis catheter.

Nurkay Katrancioglu, Faruk Serhatlioglu, Ozgur Katrancioglu,

The replacement of tunneled hemodialysis catheters (CVCs) is a common procedure. In some cases, the CVC cannot be removed from the central vein because of tight adhesions to the surrounding fibrin sheath. A tight fibrin sheath leads to firm adherence between the catheter and the central veins or right atrial ... Read more >>

Challenges of long-term vascular access in pediatric hemodialysis: Recommendations for practitioners.

Rupesh Raina, Hirva Joshi, Ronith Chakraborty, Sidharth Kumar Sethi,

Kidney transplantation is the preferred treatment of end-stage renal disease in children. However, time to transplant varies, making a well-functioning long-term vascular access essential for performing hemodialysis efficiently and without disruption until a kidney becomes available. However, establishing long-term vascular access in pediatric patients can present distinct challenges due to ... Read more >>

Travel arrangements in chronic hemodialysis patients: A qualitative study.

Janewit Wongboonsin, Joseph R Merighi, Patricia F Walker, Paul E Drawz,

INTRODUCTION:For patients on renal replacement therapy (RRT), "travel" and "independence" are rated as 2 of the top 5 factors that inform their choice of treatment modality. While home dialysis modalities offer patients a high degree of independence, the most common RRT in the United States is in-center hemodialysis (IHD). The ... Read more >>

The association between peri-dialytic pulse wave velocity measurements and hemodialysis patient mortality.

Surachet Vongsanim, Andrew Davenport,

INTRODUCTION:Arterial stiffness in the general population is an independent prognostic factor for cardiovascular mortality, and can be measured noninvasively by pulse wave velocity (PWV). PWV is increased in hemodialysis (HD) patients, but the prognostic additional value remains debatable, with variable results reported. We wished to review whether increased PWV was ... Read more >>

Hiroshi Kimura, John Sy, Yusuke Okuda, Cachet Wenziger, Ramy Hanna, Yoshitsugu Obi, Connie M Rhee, Csaba P Kovesdy, Kamyar Kalantar-Zadeh, Elani Streja,

INTRODUCTION:Erythropoietin stimulating agents (ESA) hyporesposiveness has been associated with increased mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients. However, the impact of decline of residual kidney function (RKF) on ESA hyporesposiveness has not been adequately elucidated among patients receiving HD. METHODS:The associations of RKF decline with erythropoietin resistance index (ERI; average weekly ESA ... Read more >>
