The Latin American Society of Nephrology and Arterial Hypertension's Dialysis and Transplant Registry was chartered in 1991. It collects information on ESRD and its treatment in 20 countries of the region. The prevalence of patients on renal replacement therapy (RRT) increased from 129 pmp in 1992 to 447 pmp in 2004; in 2004, 56% of the patients were on(More)
Uruguay is a developing country with a privileged established program for renal replacement therapy (RRT) for all patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) since 1981. In December 2004, the RRT prevalence reached 916 patients per million population. The ESRD incidence has not changed significantly in the last eight years, differing with what is observed(More)
36 CaV2.1 Ca channels have a dominant and specific role in initiating fast synaptic transmission at 37 central excitatory synapses, through a close association between release sites and calcium sensors. 38 Familial hemiplegic migraine type-1 (FHM-1) is an autosomal-dominant subtype of migraine with 39 aura, caused by missense mutations in the CACNA1A gene(More)
End stage renal disease is a relatively frequent disease with high mortality due to cardiac causes. Permanent pacemaker (PM) implantation rates are also very common; thus combination of both conditions is not unusual. We hypothesized that patients with chronic kidney disease with a PM would have significantly higher mortality rates compared with end stage(More)
Genotype DD of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is not associated with an increased incidence of native renal diseases, although it could modulate progression to renal failure in patients who already display chronic lesions. Because its role in renal allograft degeneration is not well characterized, whether ACE genotype was associated with the(More)
