Hyper-Acute Presentation of Access Based Cardiac Disease

Mohamed A Sheta, MD, Axita Patel, OMS and John R Ross, MD

Article Type: CASE REPORT | First Published: February 23, 2019

Fifty years after the creation of the first arteriovenous access, little is known about the deleterious cardiac effects of this pathological circuit. Understanding the pathophysiology of Access Based Cardiac Disease (ABCD) is critical, given the fact that cardiac abnormalities are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in end stage kidney disease patients on dialysis. However, this has been a challenge, as many of hemodialysis patients have preexisting cardiac disease, they invariably have...

The Assessment of Economic Cost in the Management of Acute Kidney Injury in a Tertiary Hospital in Cameroon: Prospective Cohort Study

Tchuenkam W Landry, Njoumemi Z, Halle MP and Ashuntantang Gloria

Article Type: RESEARCH ARTICLE | First Published: February 22, 2019

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a medical emergency. It refers to a heterogeneous disorder characterized by an abrupt and usually reversible decrease in kidney function, resulting in the retention of nitrogenous waste products and in the dysregulation of extracellular volume and electrolytes. Its incidence is on the rise in both developed and developing countries, with the condition resulting in high morbi-mortality and economic burden. To determine the average total cost in the management of acute...

Utility of Trend of Nephrocheck (IGFBP7 × TIMP-2) Biomarker for Early Identification of Acute Kidney Injury in Critically Ill Patients with Sepsis or Respiratory Failure

Ena Gupta, Ravi Sunderkrishnan, Nimrita Sidhu, Maria P Martinez Cantarin, Michael Baram and Bharat Awsare

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: August 27, 2018

Many studies have shown the association between acute kidney injury (AKI) and morbidity and mortality in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Traditional measures of AKI, such as serum creatinine and urine output, fail to show dynamic changes in renal function. A feasibility study was performed to evaluate the Nephrocheck test system which comprises of two biomarkers (Insulin-like growth factor binding protein 7 (IGFBP7) and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-2 (TIMP-2)) to screen for patients at ...

Tolerability of Double Filtration Plasmapheresis (DFPP) in the Remission-Induction of Severe Lupus Nephritis

Shafira Mohamad Sha

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: July 04, 2018

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by a multitude of autoantibody production. Lupus nephritis (LN) is one of its most severe manifestations and its treatment is well established with the usage of immunosuppressions. However the use of these immunosuppressions at high doses are fraught with adverse effects including infections, subfertility and even malignancy....
