Individualised dialysate temperature improves intradialytic haemodynamics and abrogates haemodialysis-induced myocardial stunning, without compromising tolerability.
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Haemodialysis-induced myocardial stunning is associated with intradialytic hypotension, increased likelihood of cardiovascular events and death. Dialysis at 35°C reduces stunning, but adverse thermal ...
Circulating endotoxemia: a novel factor in systemic inflammation and cardiovascular disease in chronic kidney disease.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Translocated endotoxin derived from intestinal bacteria has a wide range of adverse effects on cardiovascular (CV) structure and function, driving systemic inflammation, atherosclerosis and ...
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 ...
Troponin T for the detection of dialysis-induced myocardial stunning in hemodialysis patients.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Circulating troponin T levels are frequently elevated in patients undergoing long-term dialysis. The pathophysiology underlying these elevations is controversial. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, ...
Endotoxaemia in haemodialysis: a novel factor in erythropoetin resistance?
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Translocated endotoxin derived from intestinal bacteria is a driver of systemic inflammation and oxidative stress. Severe endotoxaemia is an underappreciated, but characteristic finding in haemodialysis ...
Potentially pathogenic circulating autoantibodies to cardiac troponin are present in hemodialysis patients.
Introduction Repetitive dialysis-induced cardiac injury is associated with elevated troponin levels, inflammation, and longitudinal reduction in cardiac function. Pathogenic autoantibodies to cardiac troponins (cTnAAb) ...
