Among 970 burned patients admitted between April 1987 and September 1994, 16 (1.6 per cent) presented acute renal failure requiring dialytic support and were treated by continuous renal replacement therapy as first-line modality. Their mean burned surface area was 58.0 +/- 5.7 per cent. Acute renal failure mainly occurred in the second week following(More)
Myoglobin has a relatively high molecular weight of 17,000 Da and is poorly cleared by dialysis (diffusion). However, elimination of myoglobin might be enhanced by an epuration modality based on convection for solute clearances. We present a single case of myoglobin-induced renal failure (peak creatine kinase level: 313,500 IU/l) treated by continuous(More)
The Acadian variant of Fanconi Syndrome refers to a specific condition characterized by generalized proximal tubular dysfunction from birth, slowly progressive chronic kidney disease and pulmonary interstitial fibrosis. This condition occurs only in Acadians, a founder population in Nova Scotia, Canada. The genetic and molecular basis of this disease is(More)
The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to compare two teaching methods of a predialysis educational program, namely on-site and by distance. This program was offered to patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 3. The experimental group one received the on-site program, whereas the experimental group two received the teaching program by(More)
A procedure was developed for gas chromatographic analysis of glycine-type amphoteric surfactants. The commercial samples contained N-alkylaminopropylglycines, N-alkylamines and N-alkylaminopropylamines. Some di- and triacids were also detected. The method proposed allows a good separation according to both the carbon number and the chemical function.
