Metabolic Syndrome and Chronic Kidney Disease in an Adult Korean Population: Results from the Korean National Health Screening

Background This study was aimed to examine the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) and chronic kidney disease (CKD), and the association between MS and its components with CKD in Korea. Methods We excluded diabetes to appreciate the real impact of MS and performed a cross-sectional study using the general health screening data of 10,253,085 (48.86±13.83 years, men 56.18...

Incidence, Predictive Factors, and Clinical Outcomes of Acute Kidney Injury after Gastric Surgery for Gastric Cancer

Background Postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI), a serious surgical complication, is common after cardiac surgery; however, reports on AKI after noncardiac surgery are limited. We sought to determine the incidence and predictive factors of AKI after gastric surgery for gastric cancer and its effects on the clinical outcomes. Methods We conducted a retrospective study of 4718...

Clinical Impact of Hospital-Acquired Anemia in Association with Acute Kidney Injury and Chronic Kidney Disease in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction

BackgroundHospital-acquired anemia (HAA) is common in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and is an independent indicator of long-term mortality in these patients. However, limited information exists regarding the development and prognostic impact of HAA associated with acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) in AMI patients. Methods and ResultsWe...

HYPERTENSION

Introduction and Aims: Both increased albuminuria and reduced kidney function predict blood pressure (BP) progression in the community, and exacerbate each other’s effects. We investigated associations and interactions between these two risk factors, BP changes and hypertension incidence in community-dwelling elderly men. Methods: Cross-sectional and longitudinal observational...

CKD GENERAL AND CLINICAL EPIDEMIOLOGY 1

Introduction and Aims: In hemodialysis (HD) patients low pre-HD serum sodium (SNa+) and high Na+ gradients have been associated with higher mortality. Increased pre-HD SNa+ variability has been linked to mortality, while stable SNa+ levels are associated with better survival. Here we investigated the joint relationship of SNa+ variability (expressed as standard deviation, SD) and...

Lab methods / biomarkers

Introduction and Aims:Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and/or Diabetes are at a high risk for cardiovascular (CV) disease. Improved outcomes require a better understanding of specific risk factors that distinctly modulate the incidence of atheromatous disease. Herein. we compared the distinct and combined impact of CKD and of diabetes (DM) on the development of...
