ABSTRACT Pulmonary herniation is defined as protrusion of lung parenchyma through thoracic wall weakness. We present a case of a 69-year-old male who presented to a rural hospital with a 4-day history of cough, right-sided chest pain and exertional shortness of breath. His past medical history included right lung adenocarcinoma treated with right upper lobe lobectomy via video-assisted thorascopic surgery (VATS) 3 years prior. Chest inspection revealed decreased chest wall movements on the right...

In-patient hypertension is a common problem seen in the hospital setting. Current evidence-based guidelines define and address management of hypertension in ambulatory care and hypertensive emergencies in the hospital setting. However, they lack guidance for the management of acute asymptomatic/non-emergent hypertension in the hospitalised patient. The risk-benefit of treating inpatient asymptomatic hypertension is largely unknown. In this narrative review, we discuss current evidence-based pers...

CONTEXT The aldosterone-to-renin ratio (ARR) is the guideline-recommended screening test for primary aldosteronism. However, there is limited data in regard to the diagnostic performance of the ARR. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of the ARR as a screening test for primary aldosteronism. DATA SOURCES We searched MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane until February 2020. STUDY SELECTION Observational studies assessing ARR diagnostic performance as a screening test for primary aldost...

Masked hypertension (MH) is a commonly overlooked phenotype of hypertension in practice. Lifestyle factors and conditioned stress response specific to out of clinic blood pressure readings may be the mechanisms leading to this phenomenon. 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring or home blood pressure monitoring in an out of office setting are required for its reliable diagnosis. MH has a high risk of progressing to sustained hypertension with comparable cardiovascular and mortality risk. In...

Buried peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheters are typically inserted several weeks or months before the anticipated need for dialysis. Occasionally, renal function unexpectedly stabilizes after the surgery, and a patient may go years before the catheter is needed. We report a case of successful initiation of PD with a twenty-year-old buried catheter. We outline the steps needed to optimize the catheter function and review the benefits of the buried PD catheter.

Emphysematous infection of the cysts in patients with polycystic kidney disease is very rare and seldom reported. We herein report a case of emphysematous polycystic infection in a 61-year-old male patient who was on peritoneal dialysis for end-stage renal disease caused by adult polycystic kidney disease.

Abstract Manual measurement of blood pressure (BP) in the office (MOBP) is inferior in accuracy when compared with ambulatory BP measurements (ABPM) since it misses white coat and masked effects on BP. BpTRU, an automated office BP device (AOBP), has been reported to reduce white coat effect. We performed a retrospective review of the diagnostic accuracy of MOBP (taken by a trained nurse in clinical hypertension) and AOBP using the Bland-Altman method in hypertensive patients referred to a Renal...

Obesity is a major public health issue all over the world. Bariatric surgery is increasingly becoming popular as a surgical treatment for morbid obesity. Nephrologists need to be aware of possible renal complications after bariatric surgery. We report a 54-year-old male patient who presented with progressive worsening of renal function following a duodenal switch procedure for morbid obesity, and he was found to have oxalate nephropathy on renal biopsy.

Mucormycosis is associated with a variety of immunocompromised hematological conditions, especially hematological malignancies. The common presentations include rhino-cerebral, pulmonary and disseminated types. However, occurrence of renal mucormycosis in aplastic anemia is rare. We describe the case of a 20-year-old man with such a rare association.
