OBJECTIVE To investigate whether there are specific complications to continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) due to defects in various wall structures--causing hernia and diverticulitis--and to enlarged kidneys. DESIGN The clinical experience of CAPD in 26 patients with ADPKD,(More)
OBJECTIVE There have been no endpoint studies with statins for patients with severe renal failure. The purpose of this prospective, open, randomized, controlled study was to investigate whether atorvastatin (10 mg/day) would alter cardiovascular endpoints and the overall mortality rate of patients with chronic kidney disease stage 4 or 5 (creatinine(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to identify clinical risk factors associated with the development of albuminuria and renal impairment in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). In addition, we evaluated if different equations to estimate renal function had an impact on interpretation of data. This was done in a nationwide population-based study using data(More)
AIM To define specific manifestations of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease in kidney transplant patients. METHODS Of 874 consecutive first renal transplant patients 1985-1993, 114 (13%) had autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Mean age was 53 +/- 8 years, 62% were men, and 83% received cadaveric kidneys. Control patients were(More)
BACKGROUND Novel peritoneal dialysis solutions are characterized by a minimal content of glucose degradation products and a neutral pH. Many studies have shown the biocompatibility of neutral lactate-buffered solutions; however, until now, the effect of purely bicarbonate-buffered solutions has not been intensively studied in vivo. METHODS This study was(More)
Accidental venous needle dislodgement during hemodialysis may cause serious bleeding including a sometimes fatal outcome. The venous pressure gauge of the dialysis monitor does not react when dislodgement occurs. A sensor patch put as an adhesive over the venous needle puncture site connected to an alarm unit by an optic fiber has been clinically tested in(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Aneurysms are known manifestations of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). We investigated whether the dimensions of arteriovenous fistulas created for performance of haemodialysis were affected by the original disease. METHODS The lumen diameter of the fistula was studied by ultrasound in 19 patients with ADPKD and in 19(More)
This report described an interim analysis of a investigator-driven multicenter trial in renal transplant recipients: the Prospective Quality of life Renal Transplantation Switch Study; Tacrolimus-based immunosuppression ("PQRST study"). Patients included in the trial initially treated with cyclosporine-based immunosuppression after renal transplantation who(More)
Inflammatory pseudotumour is a rare condition that can affect various organs. The clinical and histologic appearance of the pseudotumour may mimic haematological, lymphoproliferative, paraneoplastic or malignant processes. A previously healthy 39-year-old man presented with nephrotic syndrome. He had a history of headaches, nausea and swollen ankles.(More)
In a prospective study before, and during 1 year following, kidney transplantation, physical strength and performance were tested in patients over the age of 60 and in younger control patients. Quadriceps strength increased significantly in the control patients (+3.3 +/- 3.2 kg, n = 11, P = 0.007) but remained stable in the successfully grafted elderly(More)
