  • Rationale and Strategies for Preserving Residual Kidney Function in Dialysis Patients. [Review]
    Am J Nephrol 2019; :1-11Li T, Wilcox CS, … Dragoi S
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this article, we first review the definition and measurement of RKF, including newly proposed markers such as serum levels of beta2-microglobulin, cystatin C and beta-trace protein. We then discuss the predictors of RKF loss in new dialysis patients. We review several strategies to preserve RKF such as renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system blockade, incremental dialysis, use of biocompatible membranes and ultrapure dialysate in hemodialysis (HD) patients, and use of biocompatible solutions in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Despite their generally adverse effects on renal function, aminoglycoside antibiotics have not been shown to have adverse effects on RKF in well-hydrated patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Presently, the roles of better blood pressure control, diuretic usage, diet, and dialysis modality on RKF remain to be clearly established. Key Messages: RKF is an important and favorable prognostic indicator of reduced morbidity, mortality, and higher quality of life in both PD an HD patients. Further investigation is warranted to uncover factors that protect or impair RKF. This should lead to improved quality of life and prolonged lifespan in patients with ESRD and cost-reduction through patient centeredness, individualized therapy, and precision medicine approaches.
  • Double Obstruction Following Third Renal Transplant: A Case Report. [Journal Article]
    Transplant Proc 2019Anderson B, Merani S, Maskin A
  • As the field of transplant evolves and patients with chronic disease live longer, retransplant for end-stage renal disease becomes more common because kidney allografts have a limited lifespan. In renal retransplant, graft and patient survival is near equivalent to first-time transplant; however, these procedures present a unique surgical risk profile, especially third and subsequent transplants,…
  • Impact of Pruritus on Sleep Quality of Hemodialysis Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. [Review]
    Medicina (Kaunas) 2019; 55(10)Rehman IU, Chohan TA, … Khan TM
  • : Chronic kidney disease (CKD)-associated pruritus is a common and disturbing condition which has a negative impact on sleep quality, as well as overall health-related quality of life of patients receiving hemodialysis. To date, no systematic review has been undertaken, and there is a lack of concise evidence that statistically quantifies the impact of pruritus based on published data. A systemat…
