Tacrolimus/Everolimus vs. Tacrolimus/MMF in Pediatric Heart Transplant Recipients Using the MATE Score

Median survival after pediatric heart transplantation (HT) is 15 years in the current era. This means that a substantial fraction of patients transplanted during childhood fail to survive to adulthood, or require heart re-transplantation, because of complications related to heart transplant. These complications include heart transplant rejection, infection, coronary artery ...

Phase

A Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of a Selective Cytopheretic Device (SCD) in Pediatric Patients With Acute Kidney Injury (AKI).

The selective cytopheretic device (SCD) is comprised of tubing, connectors and a hemofilter cartridge. The device is connected in series to commercially available Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) devices. Blood from the CRRT circuit is diverted after the CRRT hemofilter through to the extra capillary space (ECS) of the SCD. ...

Dual Transversus Abdominis Plane Block in Pediatric Renal Transplant: Effect on Pain Control

Alleviating pain in children undergoing renal transplant is extremely challenging. Large incisions as those of renal transplant (Gibson's incision) require special techniques of pain control that don't affect hemodynamics or renal function. Since the transplant incision doesn't cross midline; a dual-TAP block is thought to be effective in providing pain ...

Dexmedetomidine in Pediatric Cardiac Surgery

Dexmedetomidine is a selective -2 receptor agonist with a sedative and cardiopulmonary profile that makes it an attractive anesthetic for pediatric patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). The aim of this study was to investigate the renal protective effect of dexmedetomidine in the perioperative setting in children with heart disease. ...

Effect of Beginning a Renal Replacement Therapy on Obstructive Sleep Apnea in End Stage Renal Disease Patients

The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea increases with progressing renal insufficiency. Recent observations suggest a causative relationship between overnight fluid displacement from the legs to the neck soft tissues and the severity of obstructive sleep apnea. We suspect that this pathophysiologic mechanism could explain the increased prevalence of obstructive sleep ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Renal Transplantation on Obstructive Sleep Apnea in End Stage Renal Disease Patients (SASinTx)

Obstructive sleep disordered breathing is more prevalent in end stage kidney disease patients than in the general population, and may participate to the increased cardiovascular mortality observed in this group of patients. Despite a significant increase in knowledge about the harmful effects of obstructive sleep apnea, the pathophysiological mechanisms are ...

Phase N/A

Safety and TDM of Continuous Infusion Vancomycin Through Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy Solution

Treatment Patients deemed candidates for CRRT and antimicrobial therapy for a proven or suspected Gram-positive bacterial infection that includes vancomycin at the time of CRRT initiation or at any time during the CRRT course. If vancomycin is part of the empiric regimen or needed for definitive therapy an assessment will ...

Bone Marrow and Kidney Transplant for Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease and Blood Disorders

The main purpose of this study is to examine the outcome of a combined bone marrow and kidney transplant from a partially matched related (haploidentical or "haplo") donor. This is a pilot study, you are being asked to participate because you have a blood disorder and kidney disease. The aim ...
