BACKGROUND Although a higher dialysate sodium concentration (DNa) is frequently used to improve haemodynamic stability during haemodialysis, few studies have compared ionic mass balance (IMB) during different DNa. Moreover, DNa is usually a standard prescription, whereas inter-individual pre-dialytic serum sodium levels may differ widely. The aims of the(More)
BACKGROUND The recommended parameter of dialysis dose differs between K-DOQI and the European Best Practice Guidelines. It is not well known to what extent an agreement exists between the different parameters, nor if target and delivered dialysis dose are prescribed according to the urea reduction rate (URR), single-pool Kt/V (spKt/V) or equilibrated(More)
and T-MARE regulatory sequences of HNF1β was evidenced. In conclusion, although mutations in RARE and T-MARE regulatory sequences of HNF1β may nevertheless be implicated in some renal congenital disorders, we show here that mutations in these sequences are not a frequent cause of CAKUT. More experiments are required to assess the role of the RA-MAFB-HNF1β(More)
BACKGROUND Ionic dialysance was recently introduced as a means to assess Kt/V (K(ID)t/V). With this method, urea distribution volume (V) has to be estimated. The primary aim of the present study was to assess the agreement between equilibrated Kt/V assessed by urea kinetic modelling (eKt/V) with K(ID)t/V taking into account different estimates of V, and to(More)
