The impact of preload on 3-dimensional deformation parameters: principal strain, twist and torsion

Strain analysis is feasible using three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography. This approach provides various parameters based on speckle tracking analysis from one full-volume image of the left ventricle; however, evidence for its volume independence is still lacking. Fifty-eight subjects who were examined by transthoracic echocardiography immediately before and after hemodialysis...

Serum Alkaline Phosphatase Levels Predict Infection-Related Mortality and Hospitalization in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients

Background Serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP) levels have been reported to be associated with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. However, it is unclear whether serum ALP levels predict infection-related clinical outcomes in PD patients. The aim of this study was to determine the relationships between serum ALP levels, infection-related...

Role of Prox1 in the Transforming Ascending Thin Limb of Henle's Loop during Mouse Kidney Development

The homeobox transcription factor Prox1 is critical to the development of many embryonic organs and tissues, although current understanding of its expression in the developing renal medulla is limited. We examined the functional role of Prox1 during mouse kidney development with particular emphasis on the developing loop of Henle. Our data show that Prox1 is expressed in the...

Serum Gamma-Glutamyltransferase Levels Predict Clinical Outcomes in Hemodialysis Patients

Background Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) is a biomarker of liver injury. GGT has also been reported to be a marker of oxidative stress and a predictor of mortality in the general population. Hemodialysis (HD) patients suffer from oxidative stress. The aim of our study was to investigate the relationship between serum GGT levels and clinical outcomes in HD patients. Methods A...

Comparison of the Impact of High-Flux Dialysis on Mortality in Hemodialysis Patients with and without Residual Renal Function

Background The effect of flux membranes on mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients is controversial. Residual renal function (RRF) has shown to not only be as a predictor of mortality but also a contributor to β2-microglobulin clearance in HD patients. Our study aimed to determine the interaction of residual renal function with dialyzer membrane flux on mortality in HD patients...

Facility for Heavy Ion Collision Experiment at RAON

The Rare Isotope Science Project (RISP) was established in December 2011 in order to carry out the technical design and the establishment of the accelerator complex (RAON) for the rare isotope science in Korea. The rare isotope accelerator at RAON will provide both stable and rare isotope heavy-ion beams the energy range from a few MeV/nucleon to a few hundreds of MeV/nucleon for...

The relationship between the regional abdominal adipose tissue distribution and the serum uric acid levels in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus

Background Hyperuricemia is associated with obesity. The visceral adiposity and subcutaneous adiposity may be associated with the differential metabolic risk, and the distribution of abdominal adipose tissue was significantly altered in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) compared to healthy people. Our study was performed to determine to the association between the...

Relationship of visceral and subcutaneous adiposity with renal function in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus

Background. Obesity and diabetes mellitus (DM) are established risk factors for the development of chronic kidney disease. Visceral adiposity (VAT) and subcutaneous adiposity (SAT) may be associated with the differential metabolic risk. Our study was performed to determine whether VAT or SAT was associated with the decrease of renal function in people with type 2 DM. Methods...

Peritoneal dialysis - A

Introduction and Aims:Malnutrition occurs in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients commonly and may correlate with increased mortality. Several factors, such as protein loss into the peritoneal cavity, chronic inflammation, accumulation of uremic toxins, etc. could influence PD patients' nutritional status. Nutritional assessment of PD patients is a very important process to evaluate...

Cardiovascular complications in CKD 5D

Introduction and Aims: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are extensively used for the chronic treatment of common gastrointestinal disorders. Chronic PPI use is associated with increased risk of fractures. The primary endpoint was the extent of aortic and iliac calcifications, in relation to PPI use. Methods: Multicenter, cross-sectional study in hemodialysis patients, 18 hospital...
