The adverse impact of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on kidney function has been reported since the global pandemic. The burden of COVID-19 on kidney transplant recipients, however, has not been systematically analyzed. A systematic review and meta-analysis with a random-effect model was conducted to explore the rate of mortality, intensive care unit admission, invasive mechanical ventilation, acute kidney injury, kidney replacement therapy and graft loss in the adult kidney transplant popu...

The outcomes of patients with incident kidney failure who start hemodialysis are influenced by several factors. Whether hemodialysis facility characteristics are associated with patient outcomes is unclear. We included adults diagnosed as having kidney failure requiring hemodialysis during January 1, 2001 to December 31, 2013 from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database to perform this retrospective cohort study. The exposures included different sizes and levels of hemodialysis fa...

Acute kidney disease (AKD) is the persistence of renal injury between days 8 and 90 after an initial acute kidney injury (AKI). In this study, we aimed to explore the incidence of AKD, the association between AKD, and patient outcomes after acute type A aortic dissection (type A AAD) surgery. We identified 696 participants who underwent type A AAD surgery. Patients were categorized into stages 1 to 3 or 0 (non-AKD) AKD groups. Outcomes included major adverse kidney events (MAKEs), respiratory fa...

Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), a surrogate marker of systemic response to physiological stress, is used for prognosis prediction in many diseases. However, the usefulness of this marker for predicting acute kidney injury (AKI) progression is unclear. This retrospective study was based on the Chang Gung Research Database. Patients admitted to the intensive care unit with a diagnosis of stage 1 or 2 AKI were identified. The primary outcome was a composite of progression to stage 3 AKI, requ...

Background: Among critical patients, few studies have evaluated the discrimination of current illness scoring systems in predicting outcomes after continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) initiation. Methods: Patients receiving CRRT in the ICU between 2005 and 2018 from the Chang Gung Research Database were extracted. All the components of the Acute Physiology Assessment and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) III, Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA), qSOFA, and MOSAIC scoring systems o...

Background null Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is common among patients with end stage kidney disease (ESKD) and is associated with poor outcomes. Several recently published studies had focused on pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatments of RLS, but an updated meta-analysis has not been conducted. null Methods null The study population was adult ESKD patients on dialysis with RLS. Randomized controlled trials were selected. The primary outcome was reduction in RLS severity. The secondary ...

Importance null Adults receiving dialysis treatment have a higher likelihood of death when infected with SARS-CoV-2 than adults not receiving dialysis treatment. To date, the immune response of people receiving dialysis after SARS-CoV-2 vaccination has not been systematically discussed. null Objective null To assess immunogenicity rates in people with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) receiving SARS-CoV-2 vaccines, explore postvaccination potential risk factors for nonresponse, and assess whether ...

Urinary liver-type fatty acid binding protein (L-FABP) is a novel biomarker with promising performance in detecting kidney injury. Previous studies reported that L-FABP showed moderate discrimination in patients that underwent cardiac surgery, and other studies revealed that longer duration of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) was associated with a higher risk of postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI). This study aims to examine assessing CPB duration first, then examining L-FABP can improve the dis...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in acute heart failure (AHF) and is associated with prolonged hospitalization and increased mortality. The aim of this study was to externally validate existing prediction models of AKI in patients with AHF. Data for 10,364 patients hospitalized for acute heart failure between 2008 and 2018 were extracted from the Chang Gung Research Database and analysed. The primary outcome of interest was AKI, defined according to the KDIGO definition. The ar...

Background Dialysis-requiring acute kidney injury (D-AKI) is a major complication of cardiovascular surgery that results in worse prognosis. However, the incidence and impacts of D-AKI in different types of cardiac surgeries have not been fully investigated. Methods and Results Patients admitted for cardiovascular surgery between July 1, 2004, and December 31, 2013, were identified from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan. The patients were grouped into D-AKI (n=3089) and n...
