This study evaluates the effect of high-flux hemodialysis compared to hemodiafiltration on small and moderate molecule substances clearance. Meanwhile, this study evaluates the effect of h...
The medium cut-off dialysis (MCO) membrane has been developed to improve middle molecule removal compared to standard high-flux dialysis filters. The aim of this study is to compare level...
This is a randomized controlled clinical trial that will analyze the impact of high volume online HDF in comparison to high-flux HD on measured physical activity (number of steps measured ...
The main purpose of this study is the determination of the in-vivo ultrafiltration coefficient (in-vivo KUF) for Diacap Pro dialyzers following routine dialysis prescription in the United ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the removal of midle molecules and inflammatory cytokines with the Theranova-500 ™ dialyzer (medium cut-off membrane, Baxter®) versus a high flux di...
The kidney failure risk equation (KFRE) provides an estimate of risk of progression to kidney failure, and may guide clinical care.
Chronic renal failure (CRF) is a prolonged kidney condition characterized by decreased kidney function that can eventually develop into total kidney failure. The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) helps t...
Age has no effect on the diagnosis of 'chronic kidney damage'. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) < 60 ml/min per 1.73 m2 is to be considered 'abnormal' for patients of all ages. Albuminuria ...
Patients with chronic kidney disease have an increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. It has been recognized that the traditional cardiovascular risk factors could only partially explain the ...
Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of death in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Rats with adenine-induced chronic renal failure (ACRF) develop severe renal insufficiency and metaboli...
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.
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
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)
A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.
Rare and often fatal drug complication which affects patients undergoing long-term treatment with high doses of PROPOFOL. It is characterized by METABOLIC ACIDOSIS; HYPERLIPIDEMIA; RHABDOMYOLYSIS; cardiovascular CIRCULATORY COLLAPSE; CARDIAC FAILURE; and KIDNEY FAILURE.
