    • Circulating endotoxaemia and frequent haemodialysis schedules 

      Jefferies, Helen; Crowley, Lisa; McIntyre, Christopher (2014-11)
      BACKGROUND/AIMS: Endotoxaemia, a driver of systemic inflammation, appears to be driven by dialysis-induced circulatory stress in haemodialysis (HD) patients. More frequent HD regimens are associated with lower ultrafiltration ...
    • Peritoneal dialysis is not associated with myocardial stunning. 

      Selby, Nicholas; McIntyre, Christopher (2011-01)
      BACKGROUND: Hemodynamic changes during hemodialysis can precipitate subclinical myocardial ischemia, which over time contributes to the development of cardiac failure and is associated with a poor prognosis. Peritoneal ...
    • Remote ischaemic conditioning-therapeutic opportunities in renal medicine. 

      Crowley, Lisa; McIntyre, Christopher (2013-12)
      Following ischaemic insult, tissue damage is extended after reperfusion, known as an ischaemia reperfusion injury. Ischaemic conditioning-the application of transient, non-lethal, episodes of ischaemia-reduces the effect ...
