We studied 29 patients on dialysis for terminal uremia, of whom one showed a dramatic rise in intraocular pressure (IOP) during dialysis. We examined the blood pressure (BP) and body weight (BW) before and after treatment in each patient and visual acuity by gonioscopic examination and optic disk status. After dialysis the statistically significant fall in(More)
Malnutrition is often seen in patients on dialysis. Only few methods could be used in evaluation of nutritional state because of metabolic disorders which are present in patients with uraemia. In this article we evaluated nutritional condition of 50 patients which were divided in three groups according to the type of dialysis: I group--24 patients treated(More)
In the treatment of patients with confirmed diabetes mellitus diagnosis and causes of end-stage renal failure represent difficult problems because of their serious systemic complications. There is also disagreement about the advantage of dialysis we have applied. In our Institute over the last five years (until 1986) 20 patients were treated. We analysed(More)
Five patients with Hodgkin's disease (IV stage) were implanted with fetal human thymus. Implantation were performed under the fascia of rectus abdominis muscle. Thymuses were obtained from fetuses 4-5 month old in aseptic condition and stored in tissue culture medium 199, before implantation. Immunological studies carried out during 4-6 months, revealed the(More)
One dose vancomycinum was successful in treatment of peritonitis in patients undergoing chronic peritoneal dialysis if it was used after initial signs of disease immediately. Thirteen episodes of peritonitis treated in that manner were analysed. Microorganisms isolated previously were: Staphylococcus epidermidis in seven. Enterococcus in three, while no(More)
There is a number of specific infections due to opportunistic mycobacteria which normally exist as environmental saprophytes. Among them, renal mycobacteriosis is a disease similar to renal tuberculosis. The obvious causative agents are some mycobacteria: Mycobacterium chelonei, Mycobacterium fortuitum, Mycobacterium xenopi, Mycobacterium kansasii,(More)
Examination of the risk factors for peritonitis appearance in patients on chronic peritoneal dialysis is on great importance for better understanding of its therapy and prevention. The aim of the study was to confirm the significance of some local defense parameters of peritoneal space and its role in peritonitis incidence. The methodology was: radial(More)
