Pulmonary Hypertension: Epidemiology in Different CKD Stages and Its Association with Cardiovascular Morbidity

Background Pulmonary hypertension (PH) was recently recognized as a common complication of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) that causes an increased risk of mortality. Epidemiological data for this disorder in earlier stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its association with cardiovascular (CV) morbidity are scarce. Methods We retrospectively analyzed 2,351 Chinese CKD...

Identification and Predicting Short-Term Prognosis of Early Cardiorenal Syndrome Type 1: KDIGO Is Superior to RIFLE or AKIN

Objective Acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients hospitalized for acute heart failure (AHF) is usually type 1 of the cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) and has been associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Early recognition of AKI is critical. This study was to determine if the new KDIGO criteria (Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes) for identification and short-term...

Receptor Activator of NF-kappaB and Podocytes: Towards a Function of a Novel Receptor-Ligand Pair in the Survival Response of Podocyte Injury

Background Glomerulosclerosis correlates with reduction in podocyte number that occurs through mechanisms which include apoptosis. Podocyte injury or podocyte loss in the renal glomerulus has been proposed as the crucial mechanism in the development of glomerulosclerosis. However, the mechanism by which podocytes respond to injury is poorly understood. TNF and TNF receptor...

AKI - Clinical

Introduction and Aims: Gadolinium chelate (GC)s using in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been traditionally considered as non-nephrotoxic contrast materials. But, in some recent articles it has been suggested that GCs may have a nephrotoxic potential. Nevertheless, most of these reports are retrospective, and evaluated contrast agents and their doses were not homogenous. To...
