Rationale: Investigation of the circadian rhythm of erythropoietin and melatonin in patients with various degrees of renal insufficiency Objectives: Primary objective: Is there a c...
Venous Pressure Measurement of the Great Saphenous Vein Using Controlled Compression Ultrasound in Healthy Persons and Patients With Chronic Venous Disease as a New Non Invasive Method for Investigation of the Pathophysiology in Primary Varicose Veins
Part I: Proof of concept trial to achieve normal venous pressure values under different provocation maneuvers in healthy persons Part II: Non invasive measurement of venous ...
To compare and analysis pharmacokinetics of PEX 168 in patients with renal insufficiency or normal renal function who were administrated subcutaneously single dose PEX168.To evaluate dose...
This study evaluates the impact of nephrectomy in renal cancer on blood pressure and renal function. The patients will have a follow-up of their blood pressure and renal function until 6 m...
Intra ocular pressure (IOP) may theoretically increase due to steep Trendelenberg position and studies showed that IOP reaches peak levels after steep Trendelenberg position on an average ...
Several studies have shown that cystatin C levels can be used to detect decline in renal function in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy, and can serve as a supplement to creatinine level measureme...
Ultrasound assessment of the kidneys in patients with renal impairment has been described in various ways in the critical care, nephrology, and radiology literature, resulting in a somewhat heterogene...
Our objective is to create a blood pressure measurement device which may provide a way to easily acquire frequent measurements. Common techniques to measure blood pressure include an arterial catheter...
Proteinuric kidney disease, especially in the early and middle stages of renal insufficiency, may be favorably affected by ACE-I/ARB. The progression of renal insufficiency is thereby slowed down and ...
Intraventricular pressure (IVP) is one of the most important measurements for evaluating cardiac function, but this measurement is not currently easily assessable in the clinic. The primary reason for...
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.
A condition characterized by calcification of the renal tissue itself. It is usually seen in distal RENAL TUBULAR ACIDOSIS with calcium deposition in the DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULES and the surrounding interstitium. Nephrocalcinosis causes RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.
Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.
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)
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
