Description of the Cystatin C as an Early Nephrotoxic Bio-marker in Pediatric Oncology

Cisplatin and ifosfamide are commonly used drugs in chemotherapy. They are known to involve renal toxic threats in children given their immature kidney. This toxicity is increased especially after nephrectomy and/or concomitant radiotherapy. In pediatric oncology, the evaluation of the renal function is carried out according to the clinical trial ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

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. ...

Phase N/A

European Registry of Dialysis Treatment of Pediatric Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)

The main scope of the Registry is to report the epidemiology and outcome of children with AKI treated with dialysis in over 30 Pediatric Nephrology Centers in Europe. Secondary aims are to verify the association of a specific dialysis modality with the outcome and the association of primary disease, co-morbidities, ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Evaluation of UDP-glucose as a Urinary Biomarker for Early Detection of Cardiac Surgery-associated Pediatric Acute Kidney Injury

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common in children after cardiac surgery with a reported incidence of 20-40%. Pediatric AKI has been found to be associated with important short and long-term adverse outcomes. A major challenge to management of AKI after cardiac surgery and cardiopulmonary bypass is the lack of early ...

Phase N/A

Molecular-Guided Therapy for Childhood Cancer

The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility (ability to be done) of experimental technologies to determine a tumor's molecular makeup. This technology includes a genomic report based on DNA exomes and RNA sequencing that will be used to discover new ways to understand cancers and potentially predict ...

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

Viral Illness in Pediatric Critical Care: Incidence Timing & Severity of Associated Heart Dysfunction & Acute Kidney Injury

This is a single-centre, prospective and retrospective, descriptive data-collection pilot study. Prospective Data Collection: All pediatric patients who are less than 18 years with a confirmed positive respiratory viral swab will be invited to participate. Retrospective Data Collection: The retrospective portion of this study will examine a 5 year period ...

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 ...
