A new laparoscopic technique for the placement of a permanent peritoneal dialysis catheter: the preperitoneal tunneling method
BackgroundMechanical outflow obstruction and leakage from the exit site of the catheter are two common complications of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. To lessen these complications and toExpand

Post‐transplant C‐reactive protein monitoring can predict chronic allograft nephropathy
Abstract:  Chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN) is a major problem after renal transplantation and chronic inflammation can be one of its promoters. C‐reactive protein (CRP) is an important marker ofExpand

Prominent J wave (Osborn wave) with coincidental hypothermia in a 64-year-old woman.
A 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) was obtained in a 64-year-old woman whose body temperature was 32°C. The ECG showed sinus bradycardia with a prolonged PR interval, a prolonged QRS complex, aExpand

Endothelial nitric oxide synthase and angiotensin II type 1 receptor gene polymorphisms can influence chronic inflammatory state in renal transplant patients.
Abstract Serum C-reactive protein (CRP) is a sensitive indicator of inflammation. Because increasing evidence shows the effect of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and the renin–angiotensinExpand

Analysis of glomerular filtration rate, serum cystatin C levels, and renal resistive index values in cirrhosis patients
Abstract Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) to serum cystatin C levels, renal resistive index (RRI), serum creatinine and creatinineExpand

Clinical consequences of intermittent elevation of C-reactive protein levels in hemodialysis patients.
An elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) level has been associated with malnutrition, with erythropoietin resistance during hemodialysis (HD) therapy, and with a higher risk of chronic transplantExpand
