National trends in acute kidney injury requiring dialysis in England between 1998 and 2013.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) severe enough to require dialysis is increasing and associated with high mortality, yet robust information about temporal epidemiology of AKI requiring dialysis in England is lacking. In this ...
Natural history of skeletal muscle mass changes in chronic kidney disease stage 4 and 5 patients: an observational study.
Cross-sectional studies in dialysis demonstrate muscle wasting associated with loss of function, increased morbidity and mortality. The relative drivers are poorly understood. There is a paucity of data regarding interval ...
Regional Variation in Acute Kidney Injury Requiring Dialysis in the English National Health Service from 2000 to 2015 - A National Epidemiological Study.
BACKGROUND: The absence of effective interventions in presence of increasing national incidence and case-fatality in acute kidney injury requiring dialysis (AKI-D) warrants a study of regional variation to explore any ...
Epidemiology and aetiology of dialysis-treated end-stage kidney disease in Libya.
BACKGROUND: The extent and the distribution of end stage kidney disease (ESKD) in Libya have not been reported despite provision of dialysis over 4 decades. This study aimed to develop the first comprehensive description ...
The Association of Serum Free Light Chains With Mortality and Progression to End-Stage Renal Disease in Chronic Kidney Disease: Systematic Review and Individual Patient Data Meta-analysis.
OBJECTIVE: To clarify the associations between polyclonal serum free light chain (sFLC) levels and adverse outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) by conducting a systematic review and individual patient ...
Factors Associated With Change in Skin Autofluorescence, a Measure of Advanced Glycation End Products, in Persons Receiving Dialysis.
Introduction: An increase over time in skin autofluorescence (SAF), a measure of accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGE), predicts higher mortality on hemodialysis (HD). However, evidence is lacking regarding ...
