Epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia amongst patients receiving dialysis for established renal failure in England in 2009 to 2011: a joint report from the Health Protection Agency and the UK Renal Registry.
INTRODUCTION: Infection remains one of the leading causes of death in patients with end-stage renal failure (ESRF) receiving dialysis. Since April 2007, all centres providing renal replacement therapy in England have been ...
National trends in acute kidney injury requiring dialysis in England between 1998 and 2013.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) severe enough to require dialysis is increasing and associated with high mortality, yet robust information about temporal epidemiology of AKI requiring dialysis in England is lacking. In this ...
Tissue advanced glycation end product deposition after kidney transplantation.
BACKGROUND: Tissue advanced glycation end products (AGEs) accumulate in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and are a measure of cumulative metabolic stress. Measurement of tissue AGEs by skin autofluorescence (SAF) correlates ...
Creation of an arteriovenous fistula is associated with significant acute local and systemic changes in microvascular function.
BACKGROUND: Native arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) are the vascular access of choice for haemodialysis. The consequences of AVF formation on microvascular function, locally or systemically, are unknown. METHODS: We recruited ...
Skin autofluorescence and the association with renal and cardiovascular risk factors in chronic kidney disease stage 3.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Tissue advanced glycation end products (AGE) accumulation is a measure of cumulative metabolic stress. Assessment of tissue AGE by skin autofluorescence (SAF) correlates well with cardiovascular ...
Effects of arteriovenous fistula formation on arterial stiffness and cardiovascular performance and function.
email@example.com BACKGROUND: Native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the vascular access of choice and its use cf. catheters is associated with sustained reduction in mortality. This may be due to factors beyond ...
Tissue-advanced glycation end product concentration in dialysis patients.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Tissue-advanced glycation end products (AGE) are a measure of cumulative metabolic stress. Assessment of tissue AGE by skin autofluoresence (AF) correlates well with cardiovascular outcomes in ...
International Criteria for Acute Kidney Injury: Advantages and Remaining Challenges.
Nicholas Selby and colleagues describe how the definition of acute kidney injury brings opportunities and challenges in identifying patients at higher risk of adverse outcomes.
Determinants of arterial stiffness in chronic kidney disease stage 3.
BACKGROUND: Early chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with increased cardiovascular (CV) risk but underlying mechanisms remain uncertain. Arterial stiffness (AS) is associated with increased CV risk in advanced CKD, ...
