Immediate Maintained Cannulation of a Newly Implanted Prosthetic Arteriovenous Access for Acute Hemodialysis

Objectives: Examine the acute utility of immediate maintained cannulations of a newly implanted prosthetic arteriovenous access. Background: Recurrent failure of central catheterization is not uncommon. An alternative access is necessary for acute hemodialysis after the exhaustion of central veins. Methods: We constructed the access by cannulating two dialysis needle-catheters and ...

Phase N/A

Angiotensin in Septic Kidney Injury Trial

Sepsis is the most common cause of ARF in the ICU. In last 50 years there have been no significant advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis, prevention or treatment of septic ARF, except for the use of renal replacement therapy (RRT) once it is established. It has been assumed ...


Renal Blood Flow Measurement With Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

Two investigational chemical tracers, 62Cu-ethylglyoxal bis(thiosemicarbazone) (62Cu-ETS) and 15O-water, will be used in this study to look at how blood moves through the kidneys. The purpose of the study is to see if 62Cu-ETS is effective in showing the blood supply to the kidneys compared to 15O-water. The tracer mixes ...


High Flux Hemodialysis Thrice Versus Once

This study will be conducted in the HD center at NTUH. Patients undergoing chronic HD for at least 6 months will be evaluated for eligibility. Patients with previous adverse reactions to FX series dialyzer will not be included in this study. Detailed demographic physical characteristics of the participants will be ...


Aliskiren and Muscle Sympathetic Nerve Activity

Cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality are frequently occurring problems in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Apart from the so called traditional risk factors, also risk factors more or less specific to CKD contribute in the pathogenesis of these problems. There is strong evidence that the sympathetic hyperactivity, which often characterizes ...


A Study of Drug-Induced Kidney Disease

This is a retrospective study, by computer screening, chart review and phone survey to find herbal nephropathy and determine the cause-relationship. Using ICD-9-CM code as a tool to screen the newly diagnosed ESRD in NTUH computer data base, and divided patients into those with underlying disease(s) that cause the renal ...

Phase N/A

Prognostic Value of the Circadian Pattern of Ambulatory Blood Pressure for Multiple Risk Assessment

Ambulatory blood pressure (BP) measurements (ABPM) correlate more closely with target organ damage and cardiovascular events than clinical cuff measurements. ABPM reveals the significant circadian variation in BP, which in most individuals presents a morning increase, small post-prandial decline, and more extensive lowering during nocturnal rest. However, under certain pathophysiological ...


Rifaximin Versus Lactulose in Renal Failure

The purpose of this study is to evaluate patients with cirrhosis of the liver and renal failure and determine if the administration of rifaximin as compared to lactulose is associated with less frequent and/or slower progression to severe hepatic encephalopathy. If one is associated with lower blood ammonia levels. And, ...


Uremic Toxins in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU): Patients With Sepsis

Study of the kinetics of uremic toxins in the ICU patients with acute renal failure, in order to optimize the dialysis dose: patients with sepsis/multi-organ failure. The sampling of blood and dialysate will be done during dialyses with different durations (4, 6 and 8h)

Phase N/A

Uremic Toxins in the Intensive Care Units (ICU): Patients With Lactate Acidosis

Study of the kinetics of uremic toxins in the ICU patients with acute renal failure, in order to optimize the dialysis dose: patients with lactate acidosis. The sampling of blood and dialysate will be done during dialysis with different durations (4, 6 and 8 h)
