CONTEXT Few data are available on long-term outcomes among adolescents and young adults with persistent asymptomatic isolated microscopic hematuria. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in adolescents and young adults with persistent asymptomatic isolated microscopic hematuria. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Nationwide,(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between adolescent body mass index (BMI) and future risk for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is not fully understood, nor is it known the extent to which this association is limited to diabetic ESRD. We evaluated the association between BMI in adolescence and the risk for all-cause, diabetic, and nondiabetic ESRD. METHODS(More)
High blood and tissue concentrations of glucose and advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are thought to play an important role in the development of diabetic vascular complications. Thioredoxin interacting protein (TXNIP) is up-regulated in response to high levels of glucose and is an endogenous inhibitor of thioredoxin (TRX), and may play a contributory(More)
BACKGROUND This article summarizes the 2012 European Renal Association-European Dialysis and Transplant Association Registry Annual Report (available at www.era-edta-reg.org) with a specific focus on older patients (defined as ≥65 years). METHODS Data provided by 45 national or regional renal registries in 30 countries in Europe and bordering the(More)
BACKGROUND This article provides a summary of the 2013 European Renal Association-European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA) Registry Annual Report (available at http://www.era-edta-reg.org), with a focus on patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) as the cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). METHODS In 2015, the ERA-EDTA Registry received(More)
BACKGROUND This article provides a summary of the 2011 ERA-EDTA Registry Annual Report (available at www.era-edta-reg.org). METHODS Data on renal replacement therapy (RRT) for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) from national and regional renal registries in 30 countries in Europe and bordering the Mediterranean Sea were used. From 27 registries, individual(More)

UNLABELLED Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have become increasingly popular in the treatment of perioperative pain. Due to concerns that cyclooxygenase inhibition may adversely affect renal function, these drugs are often not used in geriatric surgical patients. However, the perioperative effect of NSAIDs on renal blood flow (RBF) and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Heparin has been shown to be renoprotective in a number of experimental nephropathies. The inflammatory component in the early phase of Adriamycin (ADR) induced nephropathy has been established. A microdose of low molecular weight heparin (Fragmin; F) has been noted to exert immunomodulatory effects independent of its anticoagulant activity.(More)
A 35-year-old women was diagnosed as suffering from Hodgkin's disease, lymphocytic predominant, based on a biopsy of an enlarged axillary lymph node. She was classified as stage IIA. Subtotal nodal irradiation resulted in a full remission. Ten months later she presented with a full blown nephrotic syndrome. Renal biopsy disclosed minimal change nephropathy.(More)
