MRI for acute neurologic complications in end-stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis.
Summary of "MRI for acute neurologic complications in end-stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis."
Acute cerebrovascular disease is one of the most frequent causes of mortality and morbidity in patients on long-term hemodialysis therapy. Early recognition of cerebrovascular events improves the prognosis and quality of life of end-stage renal failure patients. This paper reviews the magnetic resonance imaging features of acute neurological findings in patients with end-stage renal failure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Kidney Failure, Chronic
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.
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Kidney Failure, Acute
A severe stage of acute renal insufficiency, characterized by the sudden decrease in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min, sometime to less than 1 to 2 ml per min. It is usually associated with OLIGURIA; EDEMA; and increase in BLOOD UREA NITROGEN and serum CREATININE concentrations.
Renal Insufficiency, Acute
Conditions in which the function of KIDNEYS deteriorates suddenly in a matter of days or even hours. It is characterized by the sudden drop in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE; (GMR). The most severe stage is when the GFR drops below 15 ml per min (ACUTE KIDNEY FAILURE).
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
Ertapenem, a novel carbapenem with long-acting antimicrobial activity, is predominantly eliminated by the kidneys. Acute prolonged neurotoxicity associated with recommended doses of ertapenem in patie...
Kienböck's disease, which consists of osteonecrosis and collapse of the lunate bone, causes chronic pain and dysfunction of the wrist. Patients on hemodialysis are occasionally present with wrist pai...
ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of hemodialysis (HD) and periotoneal dialysis (PD) on oxidative stress in chronic renal failure patients (CRF). Methods: 20 HD patients and 20 PD patien...
Although renal transplantation remains the most common treatment for children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), the majority of children incident to ESRD receive dialytic therapy before receiving a...
BACKGROUND: Despite being frequently described in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), clinical characteristics and comorbidities in association with restless legs syndrome (RLS) are still to...
Complications of hemodialysis access are the most frequent single reason for hospitalization among patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). Uremia, and particularly uremia in patients...
Hearing impairment either clinical or subclinical is a characteristic of some renal disease patients. The hearing impairment could be result from specific etiologies or chronic renal failu...
To investigate the influence of different dialysis frequencies on the outcome of end-stage renal disease patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis therapy.
The purpose of this study is to characterize the pharmacokinetics (how drugs are absorbed in the body, how they are distributed within the body and how they are removed from the body over...
The purpose of this study is to observe a potential benefit of moderate physical activity by using bed mounted cycles during hemodialysis treatment sessions on inflammatory markers in the...
