An optimized machine learning framework for predicting intradialytic hypotension using indexes of chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorders.

Comput Biol Med 2022 Jun 10;145:105510. Epub 2022 Apr 10.

Department of Nephrology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, Zhejiang, 325000, China. Electronic address:

Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) is the most common acute complication in hemodialysis (HD) sessions and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in HD patients. To prevent the episode of IDH, it is critical to predict its occurrence. Chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorders (CKD-MBD) induce cardiac and vascular calcification, which impairs the compensatory mechanisms of blood pressure during HD. Read More

Nephrology Considerations in the Management of Durable and Temporary Mechanical Circulatory Support.

Kidney360 2022 Mar 14;3(3):569-579. Epub 2022 Jan 14.

Selzman Institute for Kidney Health, Section of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.

Durable and temporary mechanical circulatory support (MCS) use is growing for a range of cardiovascular indications. Kidney dysfunction is common in people evaluated for or receiving durable or temporary MCS and portends worse outcomes. This kidney dysfunction can be due to preexisting kidney chronic kidney disease (CKD), acute kidney injury (AKI) related to acute cardiovascular disease necessitating MCS, AKI due to cardiac procedures, and acute and chronic MCS effects and complications.

An experimental study to evaluate the effect of low-intensity intradialytic exercises on serum urea, creatinine, and fatigue of chronic kidney disease patients undergoing hemodialysis.

Saudi J Kidney Dis Transpl 2021 Sep-Oct;32(5):1253-1259

Department of Biostatistics, All India Institute of Medical Science, New Delhi, India.

In chronic kidney disease (CKD) toxins accumulate in the muscles and cause fatigue, mental impairment, and muscle dysfunction (cramps). Exercise results in the opening of capillaries thereby increasing blood flow and allowing greater movement of urea and creatinine from the tissues to the vascular compartment and subsequent removal through dialysis. An experimental study of 64 CKD patients (32 each in experimental and control group), six low-intensity intra-dialytic exercises (IDE) were implemented for experimental group using video demonstration at 90 min after initiation of hemodialysis (HD) repeated thrice at an interval of 10 mins.

Department of Internal Medicine, Nephrology and Geriatrics, Grigore T Popa University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Iasi, Romania.

Background: The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) produced a pandemic since March 2020 by affecting more than 243 million people with more than 5 million deaths globally. SARS-CoV-2 infection is produced by binding to angiotensin-converting enzyme, which among other sites is highly expressed in the endothelial cells of the blood vessels, pericytes and the heart, as well as in renal podocytes and proximal tubular epithelial cells. SARS-CoV-2 and cardiovascular disease (CVD) are interconnected by risk factors association with an increased incidence of the disease and by determining de novo cardiac complications. Read More

5th Department of Internal Medicine, Comenius University Faculty of Medicine in Bratislava, University Hospital Bratislava, Ružinovská 6, 826 06 Bratislava, Slovakia.

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have an increased risk of premature mortality, mainly due to cardiovascular causes. The association between hemodialysis and accelerated atherosclerosis has long been described. The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a surrogate marker of atherosclerosis and recent studies indicate its utility as a predictor of future cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality. Read More

Zinc and Kidney Disease: A Review.

Iran J Kidney Dis 2022 Mar;16(2):79-87

Nephro-Urology Research Center, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran.

Zinc is the second most abundant essential trace element in the human body with important regulatory functions in cellular and subcellular levels in several tissues. Zinc deficiency is associated with the development and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its complications. With the progression of CKD to end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and initiation of dialysis, zinc is further removed from the body, potentiating the zinc deficiency. Read More

Inverse Relationship between Mean Corpuscular Volume and T-Score in Chronic Dialysis Patients.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2022 Mar 30;58(4). Epub 2022 Mar 30.

Department of Orthopedics, Wan Fang Hospital, Taipei Medical University, Taipei 116, Taiwan.

Osteoporosis and anemia are prevalent among chronic kidney disease stage 5D (CKD stage 5D) patients. Osteoblasts are known as the niche cells of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and stimulate HSCs to form blood-cell lineages within bone marrow microenvironments. We hypothesized that an inverse correlation may exist between mean corpuscular volume (MCV), a surrogate for ineffective hematopoiesis, and bone mineral density (BMD) in the CKD stage 5D population.
