BACKGROUND Intracranial saccular aneurysms (ICA) are a known extrarenal manifestation of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). In order to facilitate the definition of subgroups who are at risk for ICA and to determine the prevalence of ICA in these subgroups we studied ADPKD patients with a positive family history for a cerebral event,(More)
The concentrations of cholesterol in the high density lipoprotein (HDL) fraction and the HDL2 and HDL3 subclasses were compared in 333 male renal transplant recipients, 36 male patients on maintenance hemodialysis, and 43 healthy men. The subclasses were separated by a precipitation method using polyethylene glycol 6000 and dextran sulphate. In hemodialyzed(More)
The urinary enzymes alanine aminopeptidase (EC 3.4.11.2), alkaline phosphatase (EC 3.1.3.1), gamma-glutamyltransferase (EC 2.3.2.2), N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (EC 3.2.1.30), and ribonuclease (EC 3.1.4.22) were measured in 66 healthy persons and 52 patients suffering from chronic renal diseases (pyelonephritis, glomerulonephritis). The residual renal(More)
The authors studied the effect of dialysate buffer composition on the serum lipid values in male patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis. Twenty patients on acetate and 21 patients on bicarbonate hemodialysis were investigated. The serum concentrations of high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-, HDL2- and HDL3-cholesterol were significantly lower in patients(More)
We compared the glomerular filtration rate as measured by a single-injection inulin clearance with that measured by a standard isotope method with 99mTc-labeled diethylenetriaminopentaacetic acid in 21 subjects with glomerular filtration rates greater than 35 mL/min. After a bolus injection of 5 g of inulin, blood samples were taken 20, 45, 90, 120, 145,(More)
The diagnostic value of the low-molecular mass proteins ribonuclease, beta 2-microglobulin, and lysozyme in serum for the detection of reduced glomerular filtration rates was evaluated. The values of these proteins and of serum creatinine investigated in 52 patients suffering from chronic renal diseases were plotted against(More)
BACKGROUND Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) as a systemic disorder represents a special subgroup among patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The different organ manifestations are potential risk factors for cardiovascular events or infections in the course after renal transplantation. Therefore, a long-term evaluation of ADPKD(More)
