A Novel Small Insertion Mutation, C.1030_1031ins (T) in α-Galactosidase A Leads to Renal Variant Fabry Disease.
We describe a renal variant of Fabry disease caused by a novel small insertion mutation in the GLA gene....
Rothia dentocariosa repeat and relapsing peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis: a case report and literature review.
We report a case of R. dentocariosa repeat and relapsing peritonitis in a PD patient who was treated successfully with antimicrobial therapy....
Successful treatment of calcific uremic arteriolopathy with sodium thiosulfate in a renal transplant recipient.
We report a case of CUA in a 63-year-old Caucasian man with a functioning renal allograft. In this patient, intravenous STS was administered for 8 months, which was the principal therapy, which resulted in complete resolution of the CUA and skin healing....
Dramatic decrease of carnitine esters after interruption of exogenous carnitine supply in hemodialysis patients.
We investigated the dynamics of carnitine pool in carnitine-supplemented HD patients; here we report dramatic decrease with special changes of the ester profile due to interruption of the exogenous intake after the last HD session. Serum samples were collected from 18 L-carnitine-repleted end-stage...
Fibrillary glomerulonephritis associated with Behçet's syndrome.
We did not add any other immunosuppressive agents or corticosteroids. Treatment of this glomerulopathy is not promising. It has been noted that none of the various approaches, including corticosteroid, plasmapheresis, and cytotoxic therapy, improves prognosis....
Renal failure in the recent 2011 Escherichia coli O104:H4 outbreak: a summary on up-to-date data.
Abstract The recent 2011 Escherichia coli outbreak in Europe is considered as one of the biggest E. coli outbreak in the modern medical history. Although the induction of renal impairment is well described in E. coli infection, the specific knowledge on E. coli O104:H4 is very limite...
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy alleviates oxidative stress and tissue injury in renal ischemia/reperfusion injury in rats.
Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy has been shown to attenuate renal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats, when applied in the early reperfusion period. The aim of this study was to elucidate possible beneficial effects of HBO therapy on renal I/R injury, when applied 24 h after is...
Development of high-output heart failure after correction of central venous occlusion: a case report.
We report a case of chronic kidney disease with CVO that developed acute HOHF immediately after the revascularization procedure (PTA and stenting)....
Comparison of clinical outcome between high and low baseline anti-ABO antibody titers in ABO-incompatible kidney transplantation.
We used a protocol composed of rituximab, plasmapheresis, and intravenous immunoglobulin (RTX/PP/IVIG). We compared the intensity of preparation, complications, and clinical outcome between the two groups. The high-titer group required more sessions of pretransplant (10.5 ± 3.5 vs. 6.0 ± 1.3 times...
Factors related to pulse wave velocity and augmentation index in chronic hemodialysis patients.
The mean PWV and AIx-HR75 values of the study group were 10.2 ± 2.4 and 28.4 ± 10.2 m/s. A positive correlation was found between PWV and AIx-HR75 (r = 0.214, p = 0.000). AIx-HR75 correlated with age (r = 0.093, p = 0.028), body surface area (BSA) (r = -0.194, p = 0.000), mean arterial pressure (M...
