The prevalence of tuberculin sensitivity and anergy in chronic renal failure in an endemic area: tuberculin test and the risk of post-transplant tuberculosis.
TLDR
In comparison to healthy controls, tuberculin reactivity rates are lower and anergy rates higher in Indian ESRD patients and there is a significant relationship between markers of nutritional status (haemoglobin, albumin and creatinine) and cutaneous reactivity. Expand
Predictors of Mortality in Acute Renal Failure in a Developing Country: A Prospective Study
TLDR
Predictors of mortality in ARF, oliguria, bleeding and infection during the course of ARF and critical illness were predictors of poor outcome, and age >60 yrs was associated with significantly higher mortality. Expand
The Utility of Sonographic Assessment in Selecting Patients for Percutaneous Insertion of Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter
TLDR
A comprehensive preprocedural assessment utilizing ultrasound allowed for successful and safe percutaneous insertion of PD catheters in patients who may have otherwise been excluded, e.g., prior abdominal surgery, patients with large bilateral polycystic kidneys, and central obesity. Expand
Hepatitis C virus related lymphoproliferative disorder in a renal transplant recipient
TLDR
This report reports a HCV infected renal transplant recipient who developed PTLD 11 months after transplantation, and reports that reduction of immunosuppression led to disappearance of viremia and clearance of PTLD. Expand
High-sensitivity troponin as a predictor of cardiac events and mortality in the stable dialysis population.
TLDR
High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T appears to have a useful role in predicting MI and death in the dialysis population and remained stable even in patients who sustained a new cardiac event over a 1-year period. Expand
Is bigger better? A retrospective analysis of native renal biopsies with 16 Gauge versus 18 Gauge automatic needles
TLDR
This study compares the sample adequacy and complication rates using 16 gauge (G) and 18 gauge ( G) automatic needles on native kidney PRB. Expand
An unusual renal manifestation of chronic HBV infection
TLDR
Renal biopsy showed features of tubulointerstitial nephritis and tubular epithelial inclusion bodies suggestive of HBV infection, and early antiviral treatment may halt the progression of renal disease. Expand
Predictors of mortality in elderly patients with acute renal failure in a developing country
TLDR
ARF complicates only 1.6% of hospitalized elderly patients but is associated with a high mortality rate of 61%. Expand
The Impact of Tunnelled Vascular Catheters on Time to Arteriovenous Fistula Creation
TLDR
The presence of a TVC is associated with a significant delay (>3 months) before physicians make a referral for surgeon review and operating patterns and ultimately time of creation of permanent haemodialysis (HD) access. Expand
Minimal change disease with interferon-beta therapy for relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis
TLDR
An illustrative case of a patient who developed severe nephrotic syndrome due to minimal change disease in association with interferon beta therapy and showed partial remission following cessation of interferons beta and treatment with corticosteroids is described. Expand
