Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 Administration in CKD, Why Not?

Nutrients 2019 Feb 13;11(2). Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Experimental Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine (DIMES), Nephrology, Dialysis and Renal Transplant Unit, S. Orsola Hospital, University of Bologna, 40138 Bologna, Italy.

Patients affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD) or end-stage renal disease (ESRD) experience a huge cardiovascular risk and cardiovascular events represent the leading causes of death. Since traditional risk factors cannot fully explain such increased cardiovascular risk, interest in non-traditional risk factors, such as hyperhomocysteinemia and folic acid and vitamin B12 metabolism impairment, is growing. Although elevated homocysteine blood levels are often seen in patients with CKD and ESRD, whether hyperhomocysteinemia represents a reliable cardiovascular and mortality risk marker or a therapeutic target in this population is still unclear.

Transplant Proc 2018 Dec 10;50(10):3361-3366. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Department of Medicine, Mount Sinai St Luke Roosevelt, New York, New York.

Background: Kidney transplantation (KTxp) provides dialysis independence, improved quality of life, and prolonged life expectancy for patients with end-stage renal disease. Before and during the early antiretroviral therapy era, KTxp was not a consideration for patients with end-stage renal disease who were HIV-positive (HIV+ve) given their short life expectancy and prevailing organ procurement constraints. Recent advancements in antiretroviral therapy and HIV care have overhauled this paradigm and KTxp has now been performed for several years, however, pragmatic studies documenting outcomes are lacking.

Expert Opin Drug Saf 2019 01 24;18(1):29-35. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

d Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine , Massachusetts General Hospital , Boston , MA , USA.

Introduction: Calciphylaxis is a rare but devastating disease with a mortality rate up to 50% in 1 year. It is characterized by profoundly painful ischemic skin lesions and vascular calcification that affects predominantly patients with end stage renal disease. The use of certain medications is an important modifiable risk factor in calciphylaxis and discontinuation of these is a mainstay of treatment. Read More

Association of HbA Variability and Renal Progression in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes with Chronic Kidney Disease Stages 3⁻4.

Int J Mol Sci 2018 Dec 18;19(12). Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Graduate Institute of Clinical Medicine, College of Medicine, Kaohsiung Medical University, Kaohsiung 807, Taiwan.

Little is known about the predictive value of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA) variability in patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD). The aim of this study was to investigate whether HbA variability is associated with progression to end-stage renal disease in diabetic patients with stages 3⁻5 CKD, and whether different stages of CKD affect these associations. Three hundred and eighty-eight patients with diabetes and stages 3⁻5 CKD were enrolled in this longitudinal study. Read More

The Association of Echocardiographic Peak Systolic Strain Rate with Cardiovascular Outcomes in Haemodialysis Patients.

Kidney Blood Press Res 2018 14;43(6):1935-1942. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Department of Renal Medicine, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, Salford, United Kingdom.

Background/aims: Echocardiographic abnormalities of systolic function can be detected earlier with advancing echocardiographic technologies. Given the high prevalence of left ventricular hypertrophy in dialysis patients, we hypothesised that one such marker of strain, peak systolic strain rate (SR) would demonstrate association with cardiovascular outcome in a haemodialysis cohort.

Methods: Recruited prevalent haemodialysis patients underwent standard transthoracic echocardiography as part of a detailed cardiovascular assessment on a non-dialysis day during a short inter-dialytic midweek break. Read More

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance left ventricular strain in end-stage renal disease patients after kidney transplantation.

J Cardiovasc Magn Reson 2018 12 17;20(1):83. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.

Background: Cardiovascular disease is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and kidney transplant (KT) patients. Compared with left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (LVEF), LV strain has emerged as an important marker of LV function as it is less load dependent. We sought to evaluate changes in LV strain using cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in ESRD patients who received KT, to determine whether KT may improve LV function. Read More

Outcomes of basilic vein transposition versus polytetrafluoroethylene forearm loop graft as tertiary vascular access.

J Vasc Surg 2019 Apr 24;69(4):1180-1186. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Division of Vascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, University Medical Center Groningen, University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Background: Radial-cephalic arteriovenous fistula and brachial-cephalic arteriovenous fistula are the first and second choices for creating vascular access in dialysis patients as recommended by the National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative. Basilic vein transposition or use of a forearm (polytetrafluoroethylene [PTFE]) loop graft is recommended thereafter. The aim of this study was twofold: first, to compare the outcomes and patency rates of patients treated with a basilic vein transposition with those of patients treated with a PTFE loop; and second, to identify patient-related factors of influence on patency rates.

Protein-energy wasting and asymmetric dimethylarginine in peritoneal dialysis patients.

Acta Biochim Pol 2018 Dec;65(4):581-584

Department of Nephrology, Transplantology and Internal Medicine, Medical University of Gdansk, Gdańsk, Poland.

Cardiovascular (CVS) morbidity and mortality in the peritoneal dialysis patients (PD) is 10-30-fold higher than in the general population. A relatively low level of adiponectin and a higher level of leptin are important predictors of vascular complications as well as CVS events in PD patients. The asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), an endogenous inhibitor of nitric oxide synthase, is an important risk factor of CVS morbidity and mortality. Read More
