It is the aim of the multi-centric and prospective registry to analyze in patients with CAD the impact of different grades of renal failure on the outcome and course of the patinets and to...
Patients with end-stage renal failure have a markedly higher mortality because of cardiovascular events in comparison with the normal population. Disorders in the calcium metabolism, such...
The Interleukin-1 Blockade for the Treatment of Heart Failure in Patients with End-stage Renal Disease (End-stage renal disease and Heart fAilure - Anakinra Remodeling Trial) is a Phase 2,...
The purpose of this study is to study the effect of zinc supplementation in end stage renal failure on hemocystein level.
CardioMEMS is an implantable wireless hemodynamic monitoring system which can transmit the pulmonary artery pressure. This device is FDA approved to be used as a diagnostic tool to help ma...
Lithium is the treatment of choice for patients suffering from bipolar disorder (BD) but prolonged use induces renal dysfunction in at least 20% of patient. Intensive monitoring of kidney functioning ...
Chronic renal failure, especially end-stage renal disease is a serious health problem associated with high mortality rate. Uremic syndrome leads to increased oxidative stress, inflammation and dyslipi...
Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a leading cause of hypertension, renal failure, pulmonary edema, and loss of renal mass. Atherothrombotic renal disease is a well-described entity, known primarily for i...
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...
Among the renal cystic diseases that result in end-stage renal disease, an important hereditary cause is medullary cystic kidney disease, which affects adults in an autosomal dominant pattern. It is c...
Condition where a primary dysfunction of either heart or kidney results in failure of the other organ (e.g., HEART FAILURE with worsening RENAL INSUFFICIENCY).
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
Conditions in which the function of KIDNEYS deteriorates suddenly in a matter of days or even hours. It is characterized by the sudden drop in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE; (GMR). The most severe stage is when the GFR drops below 15 ml per min (ACUTE KIDNEY FAILURE).
A severe stage of acute renal insufficiency, characterized by the sudden decrease in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min, sometime to less than 1 to 2 ml per min. It is usually associated with OLIGURIA; EDEMA; and increase in BLOOD UREA NITROGEN and serum CREATININE concentrations.
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
