BACKGROUND AND AIM Hyponatremia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease and is associated with increased mortality in hemodialysis patients. However, few studies have addressed this issue in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. METHODS This prospective observational study included a total of 441 incident patients who started PD between January(More)
Low residual renal function (RRF) and serum bicarbonate are associated with adverse outcomes in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. However, a relationship between the 2 has not yet been determined in these patients. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate whether low serum bicarbonate has a deteriorating effect on RRF in PD patients.This prospective(More)
Acute kidney injury (AKI) after cardiac surgery is a common and serious complication. Although lower than normal serum bicarbonate levels are known to be associated with consecutive renal function deterioration in patients with chronic kidney injury, it is not well-known whether preoperative low serum bicarbonate levels are associated with the development(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Cardiovascular (CV) disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD). Hyponatremia was recently shown to be a modifiable factor that is strongly associated with increased mortality in PD patients. However, the clinical impact of hyponatremia on CV outcomes in these patients is unclear. (More)
