Pleural effusion and ascites in extrarenal lymphangiectasia caused by post-biopsy hematoma: A case report.

World J Clin Cases 2020 Dec;8(24):6330-6336

Department of Nephrology, The First Hospital of Hebei Medical University, Shijiazhuang 050000, Hebei Province, China.

Background: The renal system has a specific pleural effusion associated with it in the form of "urothorax", a condition where obstructive uropathy or occlusion of the lymphatic ducts leads to extravasated fluids (urine or lymph) crossing the diaphragm innate perforations or lymphatic channels. As a rare disorder that may cause pleural effusion, renal lymphangiectasia is a congenital or acquired abnormality of the lymphatic system of the kidneys. As vaguely mentioned in a report from the American Journal of Kidney Diseases, this disorder can be caused by extrinsic compression of the kidney secondary to hemorrhage. Read More

The influence of atrial fibrillation on the mortality of incident ESRD patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis.

PLoS One 2020 30;15(1):e0228405. Epub 2020 Jan 30.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Internal Medicine, Wan Fang Hospital, Taipei Medical University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is highly prevalent, occurring in 1%-2% of the adult population, increasing the risk of stroke, and resulting in considerable healthcare costs. While stroke is a major complication of AF, end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients also have a high risk of stroke, suggesting that AF is a possible risk factor for mortality of ESRD patients. However, whether the existence of AF at the initiation of hemodialysis predicts higher mortality risk of incident ESRD patients remains to be defined. Read More

Effect of Ultrafiltration on Sleep Apnea and Cardiac Function in End-Stage Renal Disease.

Am J Nephrol 2020 14;51(2):139-146. Epub 2020 Jan 14.

Sleep Research Laboratory of the University Health Network, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Toronto, Ontario, Canada,

Rationale: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients have high annual mortality mainly due to cardiovascular causes. The acute effects of obstructive and central sleep apnea on cardiac function in ESRD patients have not been determined. We therefore tested, in patients with ESRD, the hypotheses that (1) sleep apnea induces deterioration in cardiac function overnight and (2) attenuation of sleep apnea severity by ultrafiltration (UF) attenuates this deterioration.

Urogenital tuberculosis - epidemiology, pathogenesis and clinical features.

Nat Rev Urol 2019 10 23;16(10):573-598. Epub 2019 Sep 23.

Department of Clinical Microbiology, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Tuberculosis (TB) is the most common cause of death from infectious disease worldwide. A substantial proportion of patients presenting with extrapulmonary TB have urogenital TB (UG-TB), which can easily be overlooked owing to non-specific symptoms, chronic and cryptic protean clinical manifestations, and lack of clinician awareness of the possibility of TB. Delay in diagnosis results in disease progression, irreversible tissue and organ damage and chronic renal failure. Read More
