We investigated the best time of administration of desferrioxamine (DFO) with respect to the dialysis session, using the approach of the stochastic dynamic system, integrated with the classical pharmacokinetic models. In the 6 patients studied, the mean arrival times of DFO, aluminoxamine (AlO) and ferrioxamine (FO) were, respectively, 193, 1,350 and 126(More)
We report a case of esophageal achalasia in a nine months old baby. Recurrent cough and cyanosis were the most important clinical findings. Esophagomyotomy remarkably improved the clinical symptoms. Disorders of esophageal motility may be an important cause of respiratory emergencies in the first year of life.
The concentration of aluminum (Al) in serum, urine, and bone, as well as bone histomorphometry parameters were studied before and 1 year after kidney transplantation (Tx) in 20 dialyzed patients. One year after Tx, serum Al fell significantly from 50.3 +/- 8.8 to 23.9 +/- 2.7 micrograms/l, (53% fall). Bone Al content also decreased significantly from 62.9(More)
A total of 1,026 patients undergoing haemodialysis as the only chronic treatment were studied in all the dialysis units of the Veneto region, Italy. Aluminium was determined in water, dialysis fluids, and patients' serum. Aluminium mean concentration was 9.1 micrograms/l in tap water and 13.3 and 15.7 micrograms/l in bicarbonate and acetate haemodialysis(More)
