Predialysis D-dimers more often are increased in elderly and those with a central dialysis catheter. When blood enters the extracorporeal circuit coagulation appears by contact with the dialyzer membranes and microbubbles of air, forming small clots that pass the air-trap and deposit in organs such as...

Candidal infection is the predominant cause of morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis patients due to the presence of diabetes mellitus, renal dysfunction, neutropenia, intravascular catheters, and the dialysis process. Colonization of Candida in the oropharynx, urinary tract, and gastrointestinal tract...

Effects of a medium cut‐off dialyzer on inflammation and cardiac and vascular function in hemodialysis patients with heart failure

 Published on 03/07/2024 |  Original article (Full-text)  | Irem Ozarli et al. | Hemodialysis International 2024; 28(3): 326-35

Patients with chronic kidney disease are vulnerable to increased mortality. Systemic inflammation, uremic solutes such as middle molecular weight and protein‐bound uremic toxins, and fluid retention are the most critical risk factors for mortality in hemodialysis patients. All aforementioned factors...

 0 min.

 Published on 26/06/2024 |  Original article (Full-text)  | Ji Eun Kim et al. | Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation 2024; aop: 10.1093/ndt/gfae139

End-stage kidney disease (ESKD) has an elevated risk of osteoporotic fractures in relation to mineral and bone disorder (MBD) as well as conventional risks of osteoporosis. We investigated the association between oral phosphate binders, the mainstay of MBD treatment, and osteoporotic fracture in dialysis...
