BACKGROUND Hyperuricemia is a putative risk factor for the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). We hypothesized that control of asymptomatic hyperuricemia may slow disease progression in CKD. STUDY DESIGN This was a single-center, double-blind, randomized, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS Eligible participants(More)
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common in patients with vasculotoxic snake bite (SB) envenomation but hypopituitarism (HP) is an uncommonly reported complication. We conducted a prospective observational study on survivors of SB–AKI who were evaluated and followed up from September 2010 till September 2012. Pituitary function tests were done if they developed(More)
Snake bite is an important health hazard in tropical countries and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Herpes labialis is a common ailment caused by the Herpes simplex virus. There is no published data showing any association between the snake bite and development of Herpes labialis. Here, we present a series of patients who developed(More)
AIM Optimal time of observation following percutaneous biopsy has not been clearly established. Outpatient biopsy protocol was established in our centre for low risk patients and we assessed its efficacy and safety. METHODS Patients fulfilling the low risk profile underwent a real time ultrasound-guided percutaneous native kidney biopsy. They were(More)
We report the spectrum of biopsy-proven glomerular disease (GD) in a single center in Eastern India. Medical records of 666 patients with biopsy-proven GD over a period of 2 years from July 2010 to July 2012 were retrospectively analyzed. The clinical, laboratory, and histological data were recorded. All biopsy specimens were examined by the same(More)
In order to define the morbidity profile of sickle cell disease in Omani children, we analysed data on 97 children (53 boys, 44 girls) aged < or = 12 years admitted under our care in a regional referral hospital between July 1999 and June 2000. Ninety of them had sickle cell anaemia (HbSS disease) and seven had sickle cell thalassaemia (beta zero). Their(More)
BACKGROUND Snake bite can cause acute kidney injury (AKI) through multiple mechanisms. Many of these patients have severe kidney injury requiring renal replacement therapy. The long-term outcome of survivors of such severe AKI is not known. METHODS We prospectively followed up 60 patients who developed dialysis-requiring severe AKI following snake bite(More)
Renal involvement in tuberculosis occurs due to lympho-hematogenous dissemination. However, glomerular involvement is an uncommon event. Crescentic nephritis complicating tuberculosis is a therapeutic dilemma and weighs the risk of worsening the infection after immunosuppressive therapy. We present here a case of miliary tuberculosis with immune complex(More)
AIM To observe the neurological complications arising from various tribal practices and their management. Penetrating head injuries comprise only a small number of total head injuries. A penetrating head injury by deliberate attempt to treat an ailment is almost unheard of. MATERIAL AND METHODS We present here a case of penetrating head injury caused by(More)
The vascularly isolated abdominal circulation of chloralose-anesthetized dogs was perfused at constant flow through the aorta and drained at constant pressure from the inferior vena cava. Changes in resistance were calculated from changes in perfusion pressure and changes in capacitance were calculated by integrating changes in venous outflow. While carotid(More)
