Hyperoxaluria due to fat malabsorption is seen in patients suffering from short bowel and can lead to stones and nephrocalcinosis. Not all patients are prone to these renal complications. only urinary oxaluria is measured in practice. Plasma oxalate shouldn't increase theoretically in these patients. However recent report showed an increase of plasma oxalate in patient with enteric hyperoxaluria. The aim of this study is to assess the plasma oxalate distribution in this specific population to have a new tool to predict renal complication of these patients.

Arterial stiffness is an important marker of cardiovascular risk. It is measured by pulse wave velocity. The reference device to measure pulse wave velocity is the Sphygmocor which uses ap...
Measure pulse wave velocity stability in relation to time of day, day of the week, physical activity, sleep quality, stress levels and blood pressure.
The purpose of this study is to predict the outcome of peripheral revascularization surgery by use of a new technology developed by our team, Pulse Wave Velocity imaging (PWVI), which has ...
This study aims to evaluate the reliability of measurements of arterial stiffness (pulse wave velocity (PWV), pulse wave contour analysis (PWA), central augmentation index (AIx) and pulse ...
A multicenter prospective registry planned to recruit more than 100 000 patients 50 years old and older was carried out in China. This primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the ass...
Aortic stiffness, as assessed by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity, is an independent predictor of future events in individuals with hypertension. Recent data suggest a predictive role of estimated ...
Cardiac death is increased in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a measurement of arterial stiffness, and previous reports linked PWV to increased extracellular water (ECW...
Studying the role of the immune system in the interaction between mental and physical health is challenging. To study individuals with an intensive, longitudinal study design that requires repetitive ...
Recently, a novel index of arterial stiffness was developed to eliminate the placements of transducers on the carotid and femoral arteries and to make the measurement substantially easier. We evaluate...
Hemodialysis patients have premature arterial stiffness, and the relationship between pulse wave velocity (PWV) and blood pressure (BP) may be different than in other hypertensives. Previous studies i...
Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.
A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.
A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.
A non-invasive technique using ultrasound for the measurement of cerebrovascular hemodynamics, particularly cerebral blood flow velocity and cerebral collateral flow. With a high-intensity, low-frequency pulse probe, the intracranial arteries may be studied transtemporally, transorbitally, or from below the foramen magnum.
Evaluation of the contour of the PULSE waves which vary in different parts of the circulation and depend on physiological as well as pathophysiological conditions of the individual.
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...

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...
