The effects of frequent nocturnal home hemodialysis: the Frequent Hemodialysis Network Nocturnal Trial.
TLDR
Patients in the nocturnal arm had improved control of hyperphosphatemia and hypertension, but no significant benefit among the other main secondary outcomes.
Sodium citrate 4% locking solution for central venous dialysis catheters--an effective, more cost-efficient alternative to heparin.
TLDR
Citrate lock avoids heparin-associated bleeding complications, improves reliability of INR assays and provides an effective alternative for patients with suspected or confirmed hepar in-induced thrombocytopenia.
Benzocaine and lidocaine induced methemoglobinemia after bronchoscopy: a case report
TLDR
The patient was continued on 15 L/minute nonrebreathing face mask and subsequent oxygen saturation improved to 92% within two hours and treatment with methylene blue was withheld.
A Comparison of Transposed Brachiobasilic Fistulae with Nontransposed Fistulae and Grafts in the Fistula First Era
TLDR
The data suggest that both nontransposed brachiocephalic avf and transposed brachiobasilic avf outcomes may be superior to radiocephalic fistulae and the current recommendation to prefer transposed avf over avg.
Daily hemodialysis 2006. State of the art.
TLDR
Quotidian nocturnal hemodialysis provides higher dialysis dose, and has been described to improve endothelial as well as endothelial progenitor cell function, heart rate variability, sleep and phosphate control while it offers unrestricted diet.
An unusual case of nephrotic syndrome and glucosuria.
We report a case of a 57-year-old man with hypertension and smoking history who presented with decreased glomerular filtration rate, nephrotic-range proteinuria, and persistent glucosuria. He
157 Dialysis Is Not Indicated Immediately After Contrast in End Stage Renal Disease Patients on Hemodialysis
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that contrast agents may be given safely to patients with end stage renal disease on maintenance hemodialysis without the additional cost or inconvenience of emergent post-procedural dialysis.
