BACKGROUND AND AIMS Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) has a growing incidence in which renal vasoconstriction and medullary hypoxia are important mechanisms. Therapeutic approaches are very restricted and there is a considerable interest in advancing preventive strategies. Adrenomedullin is a relatively novel peptide having antioxidant, vasoactive and(More)

Among women with chronic kidney disease, successful pregnancy with a surviving infant is rather rare. Although these pregnancies carry higher risk, with the possibility of adverse maternal and fetal outcomes, they can be managed with close monitoring and intense renal replacement therapy. Given the hemodynamic advantages of peritoneal dialysis over(More)
BACKGROUND In obstructive uropathy, despite a severe increase in the serum creatinine (Cr) levels, only a mild cystatin C (CysC) increase was previously reported. Therefore, we aimed to determine the availability of serum Cr/CysC ratio in predicting postrenal acute kidney injury (AKI). MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a cross-sectional study involving(More)
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients are often volume-expanded and have higher-than-normal blood pressure (BP) levels. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the role of fluid balance and salt intake for BP control in our PD patients. The study included 37 patients undergoing PD and having complete data for 3 consecutive months. Patients were allocated(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM To investigate the effect of dietary salt restriction on blood pressure levels, total sodium removal, and hydration status of peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one stable PD patients who consulted a renal dietitian monthly for dietary recommendations, including restricted salt intake <5 g/day, and education(More)
