The Association of Nutritional Factors and Skin Autofluorescence in Persons Receiving Hemodialysis.
OBJECTIVE: Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are uremic toxins that result from hyperglycemia, oxidative stress, and systemic inflammation. AGEs are also formed in food during cooking. On the other hand, malnutrition ...
Peritoneal dialysis has optimal intradialytic hemodynamics and preserves residual renal function: Why isn't it better than hemodialysis?
Rates of cardiovascular mortality are disproportionately high in patients with end stage kidney disease receiving dialysis. However, it is now generally accepted that patient survival is broadly equivalent between the two ...
Predicting and managing complications of renal replacement therapy in the critically ill.
Renal replacement therapy (RRT) remains associated with a significant risk of serious complications, and critically ill patients requiring RRT continue to manifest particularly poor overall survival rates. These poor ...
Central venous oxygen saturation: a potential new marker for circulatory stress in haemodialysis patients?
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Haemodialysis causes recurrent haemodynamic stress with subsequent ischaemic end-organ dysfunction. As dialysis prescriptions/schedules can be modified to lessen this circulatory stress, an easily applicable ...
Techniques to improve intradialytic haemodynamic stability.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Intra-dialytic hypotension (IDH) remains a significant problem for patients undergoing chronic haemodialysis. IDH causes symptoms that degrade patients' experience, compromises dialysis delivery and is ...
A narrative systematic review of randomised controlled trials that compare cannulation techniques for haemodialysis
Background: Cannulation of arteriovenous access for haemodialysis affects longevity of the access, associates with complications and affects patients’ experiences of haemodialysis. Buttonhole and rope ladder techniques ...
