  1. The evaluation incidence and risk factors of mortality among patients with end stage renal disease in southeast Turkey.

    Renal Failure 30(1):37 (2008) PMID 18197541

    End stage renal disease (ESRD) presents with higher morbidity and mortality with respect to the general population. In recent study, the causes of mortality and associated risk factors in ESRD have been evaluated. In this study, 1538 patients diagnosed with ESRD in 10-year period were evaluated ...
  2. Snakebite-induced acute kidney injury: data from Southeast Anatolia.

    Renal Failure 30(1):51 (2008) PMID 18197543

    Renal failure is an important complication of snakebite and a major cause of mortality. We aimed to study the clinical profile of snake envenomation in Southeast Anatolia, Turkey, in an adult population. We retrospectively analyzed the records of 200 snakebite victims from 1998 to 2006 at the Di...
  3. The quality of hemodialysis in patients with mental retardation.

    Renal Failure 30(1):63 (2008) PMID 18197545

    Mentally retarded renal failure patients receiving hemodialysis (HD) comprise a small group of HD patients. There was no previous study describing how to manage these patients during HD and if they could achieve adequate dialysis quality. We reported seven cases of mentally retarded patients wit...
  4. Prevalence of 4977bp deletion in mitochondrial DNA from patients with chronic kidney disease receiving conservative treatment or hemodialysis in southern Brazil.

    Renal Failure 30(1):9 (2008) PMID 18197537

    Damage to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) has been described in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The presence of mtDNA 4977bp deletion in many different tissues can serve as a marker of this damage. However, no attempt has been made to detect the presence of mtDNA 4977bp in blood cells of p...
  5. BNP-mediated vasodilatation for dialysis-dependent patient with acute heart failure syndrome in the emergency department.

    Renal Failure 30(1):45 (2008) PMID 18197542

    Acutely decompensated heart failure syndrome is a common emergency department presentation in patients with renal failure. B-type natriuretic peptide-mediated vasodilatation may provide a unique bridge in renal failure patients with acutely decompensated heart failure syndrome to treatment with ...
  6. Does renin-angiotensin aldosterone system blockade exacerbate contrast-induced nephropathy in patients with chronic kidney disease? A prospective 50-month Mayo Clinic study.

    Renal Failure 30(1):67 (2008) PMID 18197546

    Contrast induced nephropathy, a leading cause of new-onset renal failure in U.S. hospitals, may be accelerated by concurrent RAAS blockade in CKD patients. Current literature is inconclusive. Between September 2002 and February 2005, we prospectively enrolled all CKD patients on RAAS blockade wh...
  7. Renal function in male Sprague-Dawley rats concurrently exposed to long-term nicotine (3-{1-methyl-2-pyrrolidinyl}pyridine) and methylated spirits (methyl alcohol).

    Renal Failure 30(1):107 (2008) PMID 18197551

    Abuse of nicotine and methylated spirits is a global problem. The current study determined the concurrent influence of nicotine and methylated spirits on renal hemodynamics. Two series of experimental protocols were designed: conscious and anesthetized vehicle loading. Conscious animals received...
  8. Late onset azotemia from RAAS blockade in CKD patients with normal renal arteries and no precipitating risk factors.

    Renal Failure 30(1):73 (2008) PMID 18197547

    Despite proven renoprotection from RAAS blockade and its increased application since the early 1990s, we have experienced an increasing CKD/ESRD epidemic, especially among U.S. diabetics. Consequently, some concerns regarding iatrogenic azotemia from RAAS blockade have surfaced. We hypothesized ...
  9. TGF-beta1 gene polymorphisms and peritoneal equilibration test results in CAPD patients.

    Renal Failure 30(1):15 (2008) PMID 18197538

    Transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) stimulates the expression of collagen mRNA in cultured human peritoneal mesangial cells, which may predispose them to developing peritoneal fibrosis. Polymorphisms in the signal sequence genetically may be responsible for increased TGF-beta1 productio...
  10. Cystatin C does not detect acute changes in glomerular filtration rate in early diabetic nephropathy.

    Renal Failure 30(1):21 (2008) PMID 18197539

    The measurement of renal functional reserve (acute change in glomerular filtration rate [GFR] after protein load) allows the detection of sub-clinical renal dysfunction and has prognostic implications in diabetes. Our aim was to test cystatin C as an index of GFR and renal functional reserve. GF...
