- renal tubular acidosis. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p2002
A definition of the term "renal tubular acidosis" or RTA which refers to a group of non-anion gap metabolic acidosis characterized by loss of bicarbonate or failure to excrete hydrogen ions in the urine is presented.
- Association of serum bicarbonate levels with mortality in patients with non-dialysis-dependent CKD. Csaba P. Kovesdy; John E. Anderson; Kamyar Kalantar-Zadeh // Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation;Apr2009, Vol. 24 Issue 4, p1232
Background. Metabolic acidosis, usually manifested by low serum bicarbonate level, is common in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and appears to be associated with higher mortality in dialysis patients. It is not known whether a similar association is present in patients with non-dialysis-dependent...
- dialysis acidosis. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p638
A definition of the term "dialysis acidosis" which refers to metabolic acidosis due to prolonged hemodialysis is presented.

- Cardiac Troponins Do Not Predict Renal Patient Outcomes. // Kidney;Nov/Dec99, Vol. 8 Issue 6, p249
Examines the diagnostic and predictive values of cardiac troponin (Tn) elevations in clinically stable patients with renal disease. Finding that moderate elevations of cardiac troponins in such patients and without differences in Tn levels between those on or not on dialysis.
