Long standing vitamin D deficiency in children causes rickets with growth impairment. We investigated whether sub-ischial leg length (SLL) is shorter, and cephalo-caudal length:length (CCL:L) ratio an...
Hemodialysis (HD) time has been recognized as an important factor in dialysis adequacy. However, few studies have reported on associations between HD time and prognosis among maintenance HD patients. ...
Dialysis is now often being initiated in older patients. In Japan, patients are around 69 years of age on initiation of dialysis. The total dialysis population undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD) stan...
Studies in healthy pediatric populations and adults treated with dialysis demonstrate higher parathyroid hormone (PTH) and lower 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in African-Americans. Despite these findings...

The purpose of this study is to determine whether daptomycin at a higher dose given during the last 30 minutes of a dialysis session is equal to a lower dose of daptomycin given after a di...
Immersion to the neck before and during hemodialysis session may increase intravascular volume, potentiate the ability to ultrafiltrate excess water, with less symptoms of shock, muscle cr...
This research will assess whether vibration therapy can increase bone-growth in length of the shorter leg in children aged 6-12 years with pre-existing leg length difference (LLD) which is...
Because bilateral lower extremity amputees do not have an intact limb for use with the mirror, we are now proposing to conduct a pilot trial of two treatments for PLP - direct observation ...
Low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) is injected in the dialysis circuit at the start of the session. In the present study we compare 3 different methods of injection of LMWH: parameters of...

In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
