Exit site infection (ESI) is a leading complication of peritoneal dialysis (PD), at an incidence of 0.6 episodes per year in the U.S., and a major risk factor for catheter removal and peritonitis. An estimated 20% of all peritonitis cases are preceded by an ESI, with up to 50% of S. aureus peritonitis associated with ESI. Gram-negative ESIs are less associated with succeeding peritonitis than their gram-positive counterparts, though when present, are associated with a lower peritonitis cure rate...

INTRODUCTION Patients with sepsis are prone to fluid overload (FO) due to fluid resuscitation, irrespective of stage of acute kidney injury (AKI). The aim of our study was to analyze the association between FO at continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) initiation and 28-day mortality in patients with sepsis associated AKI (S-AKI). METHODS In this retrospective study, data for patient characteristics were collected, and 28-day mortality were studied. We also analyze association of variables, ...

We aimed to investigate the factors associated with dropout from a physical function assessment program among participants receiving outpatient hemodialysis (HD). The participants were divided into continuation and dropout groups and followed up for 3 years after the initial physical function assessment. Multivariate logistic regression analyses were used to estimate odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for the dropout group to determine the factors associated with dropout from t...

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG), a chronic aseptic inflammatory skin disease characterized by skin ulcers with elevated and undermined borders, is resistant to conventional therapies. PG is elicited by activated neutrophils and macrophages and often associated with systemic diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, aortitis syndrome, and hematopoietic disorders. This single-center study assessed the efficacy and safety of selectively depleting myeloid-lineage leukocytes in pat...

Enarodustat (JTZ-951) is an oral hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase inhibitor developed for treating anemia in chronic kidney disease. Two open-label, uncontrolled phase 3 studies evaluated the 52-week safety and efficacy of enarodustat in Japanese anemic patients with chronic kidney disease not on dialysis (n = 132) [SYMPHONY ND-Long study] or on maintenance hemodialysis (n = 136) [SYMPHONY HD-Long study]. The most frequent adverse events were viral upper respiratory tract infection (2...
Long term dialysis involves a chronic inflammatory state and produces a high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency. A clinical trial was conducted in hemodialysis with serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) level < 30 ng/mL. The conventional-group (N = 35) and the high-dose group (N = 35) were treated with ergocalciferol according to the K/DOQI guidelines and double dosage of ergocalciferol from the recommendation for 8 weeks, respectively. The main outcomes were measured by serum 25[OH]D and interleu...
Potassium is a major intracellular cation in the body, regulating membrane potential of excitable cells such as cardiomyocytes and skeletal muscle cells. Because the kidney plays a critical role in controlling potassium balance, the elevation in serum potassium levels is one of the most common complications in patients with maintenance hemodialysis (MHD). In addition to reduced renal potassium excretion, the alteration in body potassium distribution owing to comorbid conditions may also contribu...

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has rapidly evolved into a global pandemic. A significant proportion of COVID-19 patients develops severe symptoms, which may include acute respiratory distress syndrome and acute kidney injury as manifestations of multi-organ failure. Acute kidney injury (AKI) necessitating renal replacement therapy (RRT) is increasingly prevalent among critically ill patients with COVID-19. However, few studies have focused on AKI treated with RRT. Many quest...

Studies assessing peritoneal thickness by computed tomography (CT) in PD patients are lacking. In this study we aimed to investigate the association between peritoneal thickness as measured by CT and dialysis adequacy with peritoneal membrane characteristics in PD patients. Ninety-four PD patients were enrolled. Peritoneal thickness was measured by CT. Patients with and without a decrease in Kt/V of at least 0.3 over time were classified as Group 1 and Group 2, respectively. An increase of 0.1 u...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients have lower pulmonary function, respiratory and peripheral muscle strength values when compared to the general population, which reflects negatively in the quality of life (QoL). The aim of this study was to compare the pulmonary function, respiratory and peripheral muscle strength, and QoL between CKD patients and healthy individuals. Cross-sectional study with a consecutive sample of 39 individuals separated into three groups: nondialysis-dependent CKD in s...
