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. We present some findings from a prospective cohort study, the -Q-Cohort Study, which was set up to explore risk factors for mortality in Japanese HD patients. We hypothesized that HD ≥5 h was associated with a signiﬁcant survival advantage compared with HD < 5 h. The present study examined association between HD time and mortality in Japanese HD patients.

The population of elderly end-stage renal disease patients initiating dialysis is rapidly growing. Although longer treatment is supposed to benefit for hemodialysis (HD) patients through more solute c...
Infection is one of the leading causes of mortality in dialysis patients, second only to cardiovascular disease. This retrospective study assessed the efficacy and clinical outcomes of influenza vacci...
Vascular calcification is seen in most patients on dialysis and is strongly associated with cardiovascular mortality. Vascular calcification is promoted by phosphate, which generally reaches higher le...
BACKGROUND Dialysis frequency and dose are controversial prognostic factors of hemodialysis morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to find out the effect of frequency and dosage of dialysi...
Identifying the appropriate modality between hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) is an unresolved issue in polycystic kidney disease (PKD) patients. This study aims to illustrate whether th...
Adequacy of solute clearance makes a profound impact on clinical outcome in maintenance hemodialysis patients. Thus far, guidelines on the target of solute clearance (Kt/V or URR) are base...
Eight maintenance hemodialysis patients are given one of four beta blocker drugs (atenolol, bisoprolol, carvedilol, metoprolol) three hours prior to a hemodialysis session. Blood samples a...
Chronic Hemodialysis is a treatment for kidney failure. It involves the construction of three treatment sessions per week extrarenal lasting 4 hours each. This treatment is necessary but i...
This multi-center, open-label, randomized, parallel group study aims to investigate the efficacy of hemoperfusion (HP) combined with hemodialysis (HD) by evaluating all-cause mortality and...
Introduction: Patients with end stage renal disease are exposed to metabolic and hemodynamic complications due to the disease itself and as a result of the dialysis treatment related compl...
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Long-term maintenance hemodialysis in the home.
Solutions prepared for hemodialysis. The composition of the pre-dialysis solution may be varied in order to determine the effect of solvated metabolites on anoxia, malnutrition, acid-base balance, etc. Of principal interest are the effect of the choice of buffers (e.g., acetate or carbonate), the addition of cations (Na+, K+, Ca2+), and addition of carbohydrates (glucose).
Hospital units in which care is provided the hemodialysis patient. This includes hemodialysis centers in hospitals.
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
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...
