Extracellular Fluid/Intracellular Fluid Volume Ratio as a Novel Risk Indicator for All-Cause Mortality and Cardiovascular Disease in Hemodialysis Patients

Background In hemodialysis patients, fluid overload and malnutrition are accompanied by extracellular fluid (ECF) expansion and intracellular fluid (ICF) depletion, respectively. We investigated the relationship between ECF/ICF ratio (as an integrated marker reflecting both fluid overload and malnutrition) and survival and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the context of ...

Effect of beraprost sodium on arterial stiffness in patients with type 2 diabetic nephropathy

Background Diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Cardiovascular (CV) complications are the most common cause of death among ESRD patients. Beraprost sodium (BPS) is a prostacyclin analog with vasodilatory and antiplatelet effects. Methods This is a multicenter prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to determine whether ...

Use of the Delta Neutrophil Index as a Prognostic Factor of Mortality in Patients with Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis: Implications of a Simple and Useful Marker

Background Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is a common and life-threatening infection in patients with advanced cirrhosis. The prognostic value of a novel marker, the delta neutrophil index (DNI), was investigated relative to mortality in patients with SBP. Materials p = 0.009), which was higher than that of C-reactive protein (0.640, 95% CI, 0.494–0.786; p = 0.076) or the ...

A comparison between once-weekly and twice- or thrice-weekly subcutaneous injection of epoetin alfa: results from a randomized controlled multicentre study

Background. In patients with chronic renal failure, the ability to reduce the administration frequency of subcutaneous (SC) erythropoietin (epoetin) could provide benefits and may improve compliance. The study investigated whether once-weekly SC epoetin alfa was equivalent to twice- or thrice-weekly SC administration in maintaining anaemia correction in haemodialysis patients. ...

Ultrastructural study on nephrin expression in experimental puromycin aminonucleoside nephrosis

Background. Nephrin is a recently identified protein that is a key component of the slit diaphragm. This protein may play a crucial role in maintaining the glomerular filtration barrier, and mutations in the gene for nephrin reportedly lead to congenital nephrosis. However, the expression of nephrin in acquired glomerular disease has not yet been fully clarified. To address this ...

Cardiovascular complications in CKD 5D

Introduction and Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the attainment of KDIGO suggestions for mineral and bone disorder (MBD) markers and the presence of various ankle brachial systolic pressure index (ABI) levels in our hemodialysis (HD) patients. Methods: In a cross-sectional study we analyzed 137 patients (85 male; mean age 55.8±14.2 years) ...
