Rapid Occurrence of Chronic Kidney Disease in Patients Experiencing Reversible Acute Kidney Injury after Cardiac Surgery.

There is recent evidence to show that patients suffering from acute kidney injury are at increased risk of developing chronic kidney disease despite the fact that surviving tubular epithelial cells ha...

Metabonomic biomarkers for risk factors of chronic kidney disease.

Chronic kidney disease, characterized by gradual loss of renal function and irreversible progression, is becoming a major public health problem worldwide. Chronic kidney disease may lead to end-stage ...

Riser pattern is a predictor of kidney mortality among patients with chronic kidney disease.

Hypertension is a crucial risk factor for cardiovascular death and loss of residual kidney function. Absence of the nocturnal decline in blood pressure (BP) predicts cardiovascular events and poor pro...

Copeptin levels and kidney function in ADPKD: case-control study.

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common hereditary kidney disease. Studies have suggested a possible prognostic role of copeptin in determining the rate of progressive ...

Rate of Decline of Kidney Function, Modality Choice, and Survival in Elderly Patients with Advanced Kidney Disease.

In elderly, dependent patients with advanced chronic kidney disease, dialysis may confer only a small survival advantage over conservative kidney management (CKM). We investigated the role of rate of ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)

The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

Abnormal enlargement or swelling of a KIDNEY due to dilation of the KIDNEY CALICES and the KIDNEY PELVIS. It is often associated with obstruction of the URETER or chronic kidney diseases that prevents normal drainage of urine into the URINARY BLADDER.

A chronic inflammatory condition of the KIDNEY resulting in diffuse renal destruction, a grossly enlarged and nonfunctioning kidney associated with NEPHROLITHIASIS and KIDNEY STONES.

A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.
