INTRODUCTION: Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a mode of therapy in which the patients themselves actively participate in the care of their own disease. We examined a possible association of salt reduction before starting dialysis with PD technique survival. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included 42 patients who started PD between April 2014 and March 2018. Participants were allocated to two groups based on their estimated daily salt intake before the initiation of dialysis: patients with an estimated daily salt intake <6 g/day were allocated to the appropriate salt intake group (AS group), while the rest were assigned to the high salt intake group (HS group)...

INTRODUCTION: We focused on neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) progression. METHODS: ADPKD patients with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ≥ 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 were included. Serum NGAL level and NGAL to eGFR ratio (NGR), height-adjusted total kidney volume (hTKV) were assessed initially. Patients were followed-up for 5 years. RESULTS: Sixty one patients were enrolled and initial eGFR was 73...

INTRODUCTION: Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE), an effective method to eliminate harmful soluble mediators associated with tissue injury, serves as a crucial intervention for systemic rheumatologic diseases (SRDs). However, its value in critically ill SRDs remains uncertain. This retrospective study aims to evaluate the efficacy of TPE in SRDs. METHODS: Critically ill SRD patients admitted to the department of intensive care unit of a large tertiary hospital receiving TPE from January 2011 to December 2019 were included...

INTRODUCTION: Prior observational studies conducted in the hemodialysis population have suggested a reverse association between dialysis-unit blood pressure (BP) and mortality. The present study aimed to investigate the prognostic association of home versus dialysis-unit BP with all-cause mortality in hemodialysis patients. METHODS: At baseline, 146 patients receiving maintenance hemodialysis underwent assessment of their BP with the following methods: (i) 2-week averaged routine predialysis and postdialysis BP measurements; (ii) home BP monitoring for 1 week that included duplicate morning and evening BP measurements with the use of validated devices...

INTRODUCTION: The Seraph 100 Microbind Affinity blood filter eliminate bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins from blood stream. METHODS: This is a prospective multicenter observational biomarker trial in PCR-positive SARS-CoV-2 patients with acute respiratory failure. Biomarkers were sequentially tested at three time points. RESULTS: Forty-two patients with SARS-CoV-2 detected by PCR with acute respiratory failure were included. When receiving hemoperfusion treatment, 27 (64%) patients were on mechanical ventilation, 41 (98%) patients were treated in the ICU...

Studies investigating the effects of flaxseed oil on lipid profiles, weight loss, and inflammatory markers have produced inconsistent results. This systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) aimed to explore the impact of flaxseed oil on these parameters in hemodialysis patients. The study protocol was registered online (PROSPERO number: CRD42023484076). The meta-analyses showed a significant decrease in triglyceride (TG) levels (WMD = -85.78 mg/dL, 95% CI: -155...

INTRODUCTION: The study aims to evaluate the validity and reliability of the hemodialysis resilience scale (PHRS) in the Turkish population. METHODS: A cross-sectional methodologic study involved 136 hemodialysis patients at two dialysis centers affiliated with a foundation university in Turkey. The updated guidelines for the Intercultural Scale Adaptation Stages, Language, and Culture Adaptation were followed. RESULTS: Cronbach's α of the PHRS-Tr was 0...

INTRODUCTION: Acute hypertriglyceridemia is considered a category III indication for plasmapheresis. The use of plasma as replacement fluid (RF) has been suggested to replace the consumed lipoprotein lipase. Heparin when used as an anticoagulant could possibly release lipoprotein lipase, thereby increasing triglyceride clearance. METHODS: The impact of RF (albumin vs fresh frozen plasma (FFP) and anticoagulant (ACD-A vs. heparin) on triglycerides following plasmapheresis in 27 patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia (SHTG) was investigated...

INTRODUCTION: As hemodialysis is a long-term treatment method requiring significant self-management skills, it affects both the patient and the caregiver in many ways. It is inevitable that changes in the burden perceived by the caregiver over time will not affect the patient's health care outcomes. The aim of this study was to develop an up-to-date scale by examining the psychometric properties of items created specifically for the care burden perceived by individuals who provide care for patients receiving hemodialysis treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Hemodialysis patient groups have advocated reducing dialysis fatigue and symptoms. We investigated whether compartmental fluid shifts were associated with peri-dialytic fatigue and symptoms. METHODS: Sessional dialysis records of patients reporting both a short and delayed recovery (<1 h and ≥1 h) with corresponding bioimpedance measurements were reviewed. RESULTS: One hundred and twenty-four patients reported both short and delayed recovery times, mean age 66...
