Backgrounds & objective: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) frequently causes Protein Energy Wasting (PEW), which is an important morbidity and mortality factor. Although it is difficult to assess PEW with a reliable method, ...
Relationship of ADMA Levels with Cardiovascular Parameters in Patients with Peritoneal Dialysis: A Bioimpedance Analysis Study
Objective: Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is known as a non-traditional risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Considering the increased prevalence of hypervolemia and heart failure in patients with peritoneal dialysis ...
The relationship between apelin and cardiac parameters in patients on peritoneal dialysis: is there a new cardiac marker?
Background: Many markers have been proposed for CVD risk assessment in dialysis population. Apelin is a peptide that has roles in cardiovascular functions and volume regulation namely vasodilation, decreased blood pressure ...
Factors effective on peritoneal phosphorus transport and clearance in peritoneal dialysis patients
Aims: Transport characteristics of phosphorus are different from other small solutes that are evaluated in routine peritoneal equilibration test ( PET) in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. We aimed to evaluate peritoneal ...
Subcutaneous CERA for the Treatment of Chronic Renal Anemia in Predialysis Patients
Background: We investigated the efficacy, safety and tolerability of once-monthly administration of C.E.R.A. in erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) naive predialysis patients with CKD for anemia treatment
Effect of transfusion of washed red blood cells on serum potassium level in hemodialysis patients
Background/aim: This study aimed to compare washed red blood cell (WRBC) transfusion versus nonwashed RBC (NWRBC) transfusion in terms of posttransfusion potassium levels in dialysis patients on a day when the patient did ...
