Acute kidney injury requiring renal replacement therapy in severe vasodilatory shock is associated with an unfavorable prognosis. Angiotensin II treatment may help these patients by potentially restoring renal function without decreasing intrarenal oxygenation. We analyzed the impact of angiotensin II on the outcomes of acute kidney injury requiring renal replacement therapy.

Acute renal failure in patients with sepsis is associated with high mortality. Studies have highlighted alterations in serum paraoxonase-1 in severe infections. However, the published literature has n...
Patients with end-stage renal disease who undergo chronic renal replacement therapy (RRT) have a higher incidence of cancer. A limited number of studies addressed the risk for cancer in children expos...
Type 2 diabetic (T2DM) patients on renal replacement therapy (RRT) seldom receive a kidney transplant, which is partly due to age and comorbidities. Adjusting for case mix, we investigated whether T2D...
Cytokine adsorption using the cytosorb adsorber is currently investigated to reduce the levels of proinflammatory cytokines in patients with severe sepsis and septic shock. The adsorber is...
Sepsis and septic shock are still important causes of mortality in intensive care medicine. Renal replacement therapy by standard volume haemofiltration is currently used, but a higher-vol...
Renal failure and high plasmatic level of urea have been associated with an increased risk of hemorrhage in surgical patients. There is only sparse data on the impact of renal replacement ...
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a temporary mechanical circulatory support device for cardiogenic shock (CS) patients. During ECMO support, renal replacement therapy (RRT) fa...
This study evaluates the usefulness of pro-adrenomedullin (precursor of a vasodilatory peptide involved in septic shock pathogenesis) and copeptin (a stable peptide of the arginine vasopre...
Procedures which temporarily or permanently remedy insufficient cleansing of body fluids by the kidneys.
Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).
The prototypical uricosuric agent. It inhibits the renal excretion of organic anions and reduces tubular reabsorption of urate. Probenecid has also been used to treat patients with renal impairment, and, because it reduces the renal tubular excretion of other drugs, has been used as an adjunct to antibacterial therapy.
A nonsurgical treatment that uses either HIGH-ENERGY SHOCK WAVES or low energy ACOUSTIC WAVES to treat various musculoskeletal conditions (e.g., PLANTAR FASCIITIS; TENNIS ELBOW). A probe placed on the skin conducts the shock waves thereby delivering a mechanical force to the body’s tissues.
A family of heat-shock proteins that contain a 70 amino-acid consensus sequence known as the J domain. The J domain of HSP40 heat shock proteins interacts with HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. HSP40 heat-shock proteins play a role in regulating the ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASES activity of HSP70 heat-shock proteins.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
