Creation of an arteriovenous fistula is associated with significant acute local and systemic changes in microvascular function.
BACKGROUND: Native arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) are the vascular access of choice for haemodialysis. The consequences of AVF formation on microvascular function, locally or systemically, are unknown. METHODS: We recruited ...
Epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia amongst patients receiving dialysis for established renal failure in England in 2009 to 2011: a joint report from the Health Protection Agency and the UK Renal Registry.
INTRODUCTION: Infection remains one of the leading causes of death in patients with end-stage renal failure (ESRF) receiving dialysis. Since April 2007, all centres providing renal replacement therapy in England have been ...
Circulating endotoxaemia and frequent haemodialysis schedules
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 ...
The impact of hemodialysis on segmental and global longitudinal myocardial strain.
Strain analysis derived from the analysis of speckle tracked imaging echocardiography can be used to examine ventricular contractile functions. In this study, we examined the relationship of hemodialysis (HD)-induced ...
