Aim: The aim of our study was to determine the prevalence and factors associated with intradialytic hypotension in our cohort of chronic hemodialysis patients.

Methods: This was a prospective monocentric study over a six-month period. Intradialytic hypotension was defined as a decrease in systolic blood pressure ≥ 20mmHg or a decrease in mean arterial pressure of 10mmHg associated with clinical events and the need for nursing interventions. The groups were compared using univariate analysis of variance.

Results: We included 48 patients and counted 3014 hemodialysis sessions. The mean age was 44.7±15 years. The prevalence of intradialytic hypotension was 12.4%, with cramps 20 (41.7%) as the main symptom. Factors associated with frequent intradialytic hypotension compared to the groups without intradialytic hypotension and with infrequent intradialytic hypotension were age (61±13 years, p=0.018), diabetes (33.3%, p=0.019), high body mass index (27, 3±7.8kg/m2, p=0.002), interdialytic weight gain ≥ 5% of baseline weight (66.7%, p=0.033), hourly ultrafiltration (800±275ml/h, p=0.037) and perdialytic feeding (33.3%, p=0.016). Low pre-dialysis diastolic blood pressure (72±13mmHg, p=0.012) and high baseline weight (73.9±17.5kg, p=0.028) were associated with frequent versus infrequent intradialytic hypotension.

Conclusion: Intradialytic hypotension is common in our context. Its prevention in at-risk patients is critical to reducing morbidity and mortality and improving quality of life.

[Hyperthyroidism-induced calciphylaxis: A case report].

Nephrol Ther 2018 Dec 29;14(7):548-553. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Background: Calciphylaxis or calcific uremic arteriolopathy (CUA) is a cutaneous disease with ulcerations secondary to calcification of cutaneous and subcutaneous small arteries and arterioles. It is a rare but severe disease with significant morbidity and mortality affecting 1 to 4% of dialysis patients. The circumstances of occurrence are multiple.

Case: We report the case of a severe bilateral lower limb calciphylaxis in a 69-year-old, obese, hemodialysis patient with a recent diagnosis of Graves' disease complicated with hypercalcemia and cardiac arrhythmia requiring the use of vitamin K antagonist. Complex and multidisciplinary therapeutic management (daily hemodialysis, sodium thiosulfate therapy, treatment of hypercalcemia by denosumab, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, meshed skin autograft) allowed complete healing of the lesions.

Conclusion: This is the first description of AUC secondary to hyperthyroidism in a dialysis patient. Multidisciplinary care is essential to achieve clinical improvement in those critical situations.
