INTRODUCTION Little is known about the prevalence of kidney diseases according to renal biopsy in Israel. Since updated literature worldwide emphasizes changing etiologies of chronic kidney disease, it is crucial to research and define the epidemiology and pathology of kidney disease in Israel. Hereby, we introduce an original review of the prevalence of(More)
Twenty patients undergoing intermittent peritoneal dialysis (IPD) and 20 patients on hemodialysis (HD) for end-stage kidney disease underwent Holter ECG monitoring for a continuous 24-h period, starting prior to the onset of dialysis and continuing until several hours after it. Clinically significant ventricular arrhythmias were found in only 2 of 20(More)
Auditory brain-stem evoked potentials (ABEPs) and pure-tone audiograms were obtained for 38 patients with renal failure, undergoing dialysis, before and after a dialysis session, and for 40 healthy normal subjects. Blood chemistry was also evaluated for each patient before and after dialysis. ABEP abnormality (using 10/sec click rate) was observed for 24%(More)
Rats with chronic aortocaval (AV) fistula, an experimental model of congestive heart failure, display high plasma levels of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) and a blunted natriuretic response to ANF infusion. We previously reported that rats with AV fistula either develop progressive sodium retention (urinary sodium excretion, UNaV less than 100 microeq/24(More)
In a previous work abnormalities in the copper and zinc metabolism in high myopic patients were found. Primary Retinal Detachment is a common complication of High Myopia. In order to establish further their relationship, a study of the metabolism of these metals was performed in myopic patients with Retinal Detachment. A significant high copper and zinc(More)
Several reports have appeared in the literature linking abnormalities in the Retinal Pigment Epithelium (RPE) related with changes in the metabolism of copper and zinc. It has not been yet elucidated if the changes in the metabolism of these metals are secondary to a progressive disease that affects the RPE, or the changes found in this retinal layer are a(More)
