Sirolimus Use in Angioplasty for Vascular Access Extension

This is a randomized control study to determine the feasibility of using sirolimus peri-angioplasty to compare the time from primary failure or angioplasty intervention to second or next angioplasty intervention or graft failure to a control group who would not have received Sirolimus


The Feasibility of Propofol TCI in Hemodialysis Patients Undergoing Arteriovenous Shunt Surgery

The investigators will recruit 80 patients undergoing AV shunt surgery. All patients will receive general anesthesia and brachial plexus block. Patients will be randomly allocated into two groups. Study and control group received propofol target-controlled infusion (TCI) and inhaled anesthetics as anesthesia maintenance, respectively. Main outcomes will be assessed by ...


High-flux Hemodialysis Versus Hemodiafiltration for End-Stage Renal Disease

Hemodialysis using diffusion, ultrafiltration and convection principle to remove harmful substances in the blood and excessive water, is one of the most commonly replacement therapy. Hemodiafiltration is a combination of hemodialysis and hemofiltration with two modes of treatment advantages, both by diffusion and convection principle to remove harmful substances in ...

Phase N/A

Serum MIF in Acute Kidney Injury

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in critical care patients. Currently no parameters are available for early prognosis of AKI. Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) has been associated with AKI in clinical studies. The aim of this study is to evaluate the time course of MIF concentrations in ...

Phase N/A

Berberine Prevent Contrast-induced Nephropathy in Patients With Diabetes

The number of cardiac angiography and percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) has increased steadily in recent years. This has resulted in the increasing incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). Major risk factors for CIN include older age, diabetes mellitus (DM), chronic kidney disease(CKD), the concurrent use of nephrotoxic drugs, hemodynamic instability, etc. ...


Apixaban in End-stage Kidney Disease : A Pharmacokinetics Study

RATIONALE Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is one of the epidemics of modern times. In the recent National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the overall prevalence of CKD (stages 1 to 4) increased from 10.0% in 1988-1994 to 13.1% in 1999-2004 (1). Mounting data point to the lethal synergy between ...


Effect of CPAP in the Worsening of Renal Function in Early Stages of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

There is a bidirectional involvement between the chronic kidney disease (CKD) and sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). The declining of renal function, the fluid overloading and the disturbance of ventilation control could cause sleep apneas. On the other hand, the nocturnal hypoxia in patients with OSAS has been associated with changes ...

Phase N/A

Nephrologic Intervention in Patients Waiting for Cardiac Surgery

Aim The aim of this study is to assess if a nephrology intervention before cardiac surgery can reduce the postoperative incidence of AKI (Acute Kidney Injury). Methods Trial design and participants Recruitment: unicentric Ethics approval: Clinical Research Ethics Committee of Bellvitge will have approved the study before initiation. All patients ...

Phase N/A

Kidney Information Network for Disease Research and Education

KINDRED is a prospective observational cohort study that will enroll up to 10,100 dialysis patients throughout the United States with and without known diagnosis of Fabry disease but at risk for Fabry disease (e.g., unknown cause of renal disease, young male, initiating dialysis without a kidney biopsy, etc).This tissue repository ...

Phase N/A

Partners Calciphylaxis Biobank

Calciphylaxis, a vascular calcification disorder, is a rare and serious disorder characterized by calcification of dermal arterioles. There are significant gaps in the understanding of the pathophysiology and risk factors for calciphylaxis. At present, there is no effective treatment. Uncertain pathobiology, rare incidence and lack of collaborative approach have been ...
