BACKGROUND Parathyroidectomy is unsuccessful in 10-30% of uraemic patients operated on for secondary hyperparathyroidism. We investigated the usefulness of preoperative radionuclide imaging, with simultaneous recording of the distribution images of iodine-123 and technetium-99m-labelled sestamibi. METHODS 11 patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism(More)
Renal transplantation in patients presenting end-stage renal failure can be hampered by the presence of alloantibodies against HLA antigens. In 4 out of 5 patients with HLA-specific alloantibodies waiting for a renal allograft, treatment with high-dose i.v. Ig resulted in a prolonged suppression (over 3 months) of most of the panel-reactive anti-HLA(More)
The course of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) varies among individuals, with some reaching ESRD before 40 years of age and others never requiring RRT. In this study, we developed a prognostic model to predict renal outcomes in patients with ADPKD on the basis of genetic and clinical data. We conducted a cross-sectional study of 1341(More)
PURPOSE To compare iodine-123-technetium-99m-sestamibi subtraction scintigraphy with ultrasonography (US) for detection of parathyroid abnormalities in uremic patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fourteen adult uremic patients with severe secondary hyperparathyroidism underwent subtraction scintigraphy before total or(More)
In immunocompromised subjects pyelonephritis is not more frequent than in healthy subjects and has the same clinical presentation. This is not true for kidney transplant recipients, in whom the physician is faced with fever of unknown origin. However, diagnosis of urinary tract infection is soon made by dipstick and confirmed by the laboratory finding of(More)
