Mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) remains exceptionally high. While traditional risk factors such as obesity are paradoxically associated with better survival, nontraditional risk factors including cachexia increase the likelihood of poor outcomes. There is accumulating evidence that the endocannabinoid (ECB) system plays a major role in energy preservation and storage, factors which can prevent the deleterious effects of cachexia. Hence, in this study, we evaluated the association of circulating ECB levels with mortality in MHD patients.

The central venous catheter (CVC) has been shown to increase mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients compared with the arteriovenous fistula (AVF). However, no study has examined the mortality of HD p...
Dysregulation of innate immunity has been proposed as an important contributing factor for advanced atherosclerosis and resultant high mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients. To evaluate the long-ter...
Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) is a major complication of hemodialysis, with a prevalence of about 25% during hemodialysis sessions, causing increased morbidity and mortality.
This study aimed to identify the factors capable of mortality prediction in patients on hemodialysis, using a prospective cohort with three years of follow-up. We hypothesized that lack of clinical-me...
The study aims at evaluating in normal weight and obese subjects those factors such as taste sensitivity and circulating endocannabinoids in influencing dietary choice and thereby lipid an...
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...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of low flux hemodialysis with online hemodiafiltration on all cause mortality and a combination of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality...
This study evaluates whether circulating levels of aminoterminal propeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP) can predict the cardiovascular events in hemodialysis patients.
Patients on hemodialysis will be randomly assigned (1:1) to continue on conventional hemodialysis or on-line hemodiafiltration, both three times per week. A 3 year follow-up and a sample s...
Hospital units in which care is provided the hemodialysis patient. This includes hemodialysis centers in hospitals.
The presence of fungi circulating in the blood. Opportunistic fungal sepsis is seen most often in immunosuppressed patients with severe neutropenia or in postoperative patients with intravenous catheters and usually follows prolonged antibiotic therapy.
Long-term maintenance hemodialysis in the home.
The combination of hemodialysis and hemofiltration either simultaneously or sequentially. Convective transport (hemofiltration) may be better for removal of larger molecular weight substances and diffusive transport (hemodialysis) for smaller molecular weight solutes.
Carbonic acid calcium salt (CaCO3). An odorless, tasteless powder or crystal that occurs in nature. It is used therapeutically as a phosphate buffer in hemodialysis patients and as a calcium supplement.
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...
