Effect of Malnutrition on the Prognosis in Hemodialysis Patients

Malnutrition is known to affect their prognosis in hemodialysis patients. Furthermore, recent studies indicate that malnutrition is associated with inflammation and atherosclerosis in these patients. In this study we examine the effect of malnutrition and/or inflammation on atherosclerosis and 5-year survival rate in 600 hemodialysis patients.

Phase N/A

Influence of Nutritional and Inflammational Status on Survival of Hemodialysis Patients

prospective longitudinal measurements of nutritional status parameters (body composition by BIA, anthropometry and biochemical indexes), inflammatory response (CRP, inflammatory cytokines (IL-1, IL-6, IL-10),IGF-1, leptin and NOx blood levels) and morbidity and mortality data collection over 2 year period in patients receiving chronic hemodialysis.

Phase N/A

The Study of Metabolic Syndrome in Hemodialysis Patients

Metabolic syndrome (MS), comprised of central obesity, glucose intolerance, hyperinsulinemia, low HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C), high triglyceride (TG) and hypertension, results in markedly increased risk for cardiovascular disease in the general population. The National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP ATP III) report recommended the use of five variables for ...

Phase N/A

Malnutrition and Inflammation in Dialysis Patients in Taiwan

According to the reports of the United States Renal Data System (USRDS), there is a 25% annual mortality rate with nearly 50% of all reported maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patient deaths attributed to atherosclerosis-related complications. Although traditional risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD) are common in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients, ...

Phase N/A

Pilot Bleeding Study: Risk and Protective Factors Associated With Bleeding in the Hemodialysis Population

This study is examining the risk and protective factors associated with bleeding in the hemodialysis population.

Procalcitonin Level as a Surrogate for Catheter-related Blood Stream Bacteremia Among Hemodialysis Patients

Catheter-related blood stream bacteremia is common among hemodialysis patients. Clinically, fever and/or rigors with laboratory indicator of inflammation as leucocytosis and elevated c-reactive protein level are considered as markers for CRBSI before blood culture results became available. Procalcitonin is a valid indicator of sepsis. In this study, Procalcitonin level will ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Reducing Phosphorus Absorption on Cardiac Biomarkers in Hemodialysis Patients

Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in patient with chronic kidney disease(CKD), accounting for more than 50% of all deaths.When myocardial cells get injured, cardiac biomarkers will be released into the circulation. Elevated cardiac biomarkers have been observed in patients with various degrees of ...

Phase N/A

Complement Activation During Hemodialysis in Atypical Hemolytic Uraemic Syndrome as Underlying Kidney Disease

Atypical hemolytic uraemic syndrome is caused by defects in the regulating factors in the alternative pathway of the complement system. Triggering can cause an uncontrolled complement activation with endothelial damage and thrombotic micro-angiopathy, especially in the kidneys. This can result in endstage renal failure. Complement activation during hemodialysis has been ...

Phase N/A

Design the Home Care Platform for the Monitoring of A Hemodialysis Arteriovenous Graft by Intelligent Physiological Signal

Most patients with end-stage renal disease require hemodialysis. An arteriovenous fistula (AVF) or a prosthetic arteriovenous graft (AVG) is the preferred accesses for this. After its surgical creation, the fistular vein immediately faces a tremendous blood flow and the venous lumen is gradually dilated and the wall thickened, producing an ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
