Renal dysfunction and anaemia are common in patients with acute heart failure (HF). It is not known whether their combined presence has additive prognostic value. We investigated their prognostic value separately and in combination, on prognosis in acute HF patients. Furthermore, we examined whether the improvement in prognosis was comparable between patients with and without renal dysfunction.

Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte abnormality found in hospitalized patients with acute heart failure (AHF) and is related to poor prognosis. This study sought to evaluate: (1) the different...
Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a frequently used quality outcome marker after peripheral vascular interventions (PVIs). Whereas the factors associated with CIN development have been well docume...
In adults, renal function recovery following partial nephrectomy plateaus, with no significant long-term recovery. Our study emphasizes the timing of this plateau, indicating that it occurs at 6-12 we...
Little data is available on long-term renal impairment in survivors from childhood sarcoma. We investigated the prevalence of renal impairment and hypertension after very long-term follow-up in surviv...
This study aimed to compare the short-term complications and long-term prognosis between urgent-start peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD), and explore the safety and feasibility of PD in en...
Carperitide (alpha-human atrial natriuretic peptide) improves systemic hemodynamics in patients with heart failure through a vasodilatory action, a natriuretic action, and inhibition of th...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) involves poor prognosis in ICU patients. The renal prognosis at long term is unknown. The study will determine chronic kidney injury incidence and quality of lif...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the safety and efficacy for 52-week dosing of JR-131 in renal anemia patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).
This observational study will assess the effect of long-term treatment with Mircera (methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta) in chronic kidney disease patients with renal anemia. Data wi...
This proposed novel randomized control trial (RCT) seeks to address this gap in TKA protocol by gaining a better understanding of the relationship between tourniquet pressure and time, and...
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of FOLIC ACID in the diet. Many plant and animal tissues contain folic acid, abundant in green leafy vegetables, yeast, liver, and mushrooms but destroyed by long-term cooking. Alcohol interferes with its intermediate metabolism and absorption. Folic acid deficiency may develop in long-term anticonvulsant therapy or with use of oral contraceptives. This deficiency causes anemia, macrocytic anemia, and megaloblastic anemia. It is indistinguishable from vitamin B 12 deficiency in peripheral blood and bone marrow findings, but the neurologic lesions seen in B 12 deficiency do not occur. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)
Temporary storage of information for a few seconds to hours, as opposed to long-term memory which refers to material stored for days, years, or a lifetime.
A physiochemical process which occurs in a wide range of organisms which unlike BASAL METABOLISM is not required for or essential to short-term survivability but to long-term general well-being of the organism.
A syndrome that is associated with microvascular diseases of the KIDNEY, such as RENAL CORTICAL NECROSIS. It is characterized by hemolytic anemia (ANEMIA, HEMOLYTIC); THROMBOCYTOPENIA; and ACUTE RENAL FAILURE.
Health insurance to provide full or partial coverage for long-term home care services or for long-term nursing care provided in a residential facility such as a nursing home.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
