BACKGROUND Dialysis patients and patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) experience a substantial risk for abnormal autonomic function and abnormal heart rate variability (HRV). It remains unknown whether HRV changes across sleep stages in patients with different severity of CKD or dialysis dependency. We hypothesized that high-frequency (HF) HRV (vagal(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Little is known about the association of chronic kidney disease (CKD) with sleep quality, mood, and alertness. In this report, we assessed these symptoms among patients with advanced CKD (stages 4-5) and those with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and compared them to healthy controls without known kidney disease. METHODS Patients were(More)
BACKGROUND The bulk of randomized trial evidence for the expanding use of High Flux (HF) hemodialysis worldwide comes from two randomized controlled trials, one of which (HEMODIALYSIS, HEMO) allowed, while the other (Membrane Outcomes Permeability, MPO) excluded, the reuse of membranes. It is not known whether dialyzer reuse has a differential impact on(More)
BACKGROUND Automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) is one of the fastest growing dialysis modalities. It is unknown whether sleep and mood are disturbed while performing repeated overnight exchanges. OBJECTIVES In this report, we aim to describe and compare the prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), periodic limb movements (PLMS), poor sleep quality(More)
Extramedullary sudden blast crisis in chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia during first-line treatment with nilotinib The natural course of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) has changed dramatically since the introduction of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) with 490% of the patients achieving long-term disease control. Development of resistance with(More)
