To define which noninvasive investigations are of value in predicting bone histology, we analyzed transiliac bone specimens (66 biopsies, 14 autopsies) from 80 uremic patients on chronic dialysis. Results were compared with values of different measurements of parathyroid hormone (PTH), alkaline phosphatase (APH), osteocalcin, calcitonin, baseline and(More)
The venous thromboembolic disease (VTD) in adults has a high morbidity and mortality. It can be also associated to disabling chronic conditions. In spite of this, prophylaxis in healthcare assistance is still underused. In this article, the available evidence in thromboprophylaxis was analyzed to offer recommendations (1) or suggestions (2) classified(More)
To achieve a rational basis for the use of deferoxamine (DFO) in aluminum (AL) -and iron (Fe)-overloaded uremic patients, important insights may be provided by the recently available micromethods to determine DFO and its metallochelates aluminoxamine (AlA) and feroxamine (FeA). With this procedure, AlA and FeA plasma kinetics were evaluated in a pilot study(More)
The use of erythropoietin in dialysed patients leads to the gradual depletion of the body's iron reserves. It is important to assay iron blood levels in both patients receiving Epo therapy and those undergoing dialysis without this treatment. The most common method used is to assay ferritinemia, transferrinemia and the transferrin saturation levels. Using a(More)
A personal series arterio-venous fistulas from the last 20 years is examined. The authors have tried to verify the correctness of their present proctocol which is based on the abolition of those fistulas applied to the anatomic tabac. In fact in some cases they have caused problems of flow, but in other cases they have lasted much longer than any other kind(More)
Fourteen patients undergoing periodic dialysis who had been taking AL(OH)3 as an intestinal chelant of phosphorus have been examined. AL(OH)3 was replaced by CaCO3 for a period of 6 months. At the end of the study, statistically significant reductions were evidenced in alkaline phosphatase, basal serum aluminiaemia and its increase after Desferal test,(More)
Having examined the causes that lead, on the one hand, to an increased number of vascular accesses in difficult conditions and, on the other, to their reduction and having examined their personal series of vascular accesses for hemodialysis studied between 4 December 1974 to 30 September 1996, and lastly having outlined the correct protocol for the(More)
