- Survival and transplantation in end-stage renal disease: a prospective study of a multiethnic population. Jain, Poorva; Cockwell, Paul; Little, Jane; Ferring, Martin; Nicholas, Johann; Richards, Nick; Higgins, Rob; Smith, Steve // Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation;Dec2009, Vol. 24 Issue 12, p3840
Introduction. Accurate assessment of determinants of patient survival in end-stage renal disease is important for counselling, clinical management and resource planning. To address this we have analysed survival and risk factors for survival for patients treated for end-stage renal disease in a...

- Peritoneal dialysis in polycystic kidney disease patients. Report from the French peritoneal dialysis registry (RDPLF). Lobbedez, Thierry; Touam, Malick; Evans, David; Ryckelynck, Jean-Philippe; Knebelman, Bertrand; Verger, Christian // Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation;Jul2011, Vol. 26 Issue 7, p2332
Background. It is commonly believed that polycystic kidney disease (PKD) patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) are over-exposed to technique failure and peritonitis compared with other patients. This study was carried out to assess whether PKD is associated with technique failure and to evaluate...
- The effect of smoking on the kidneys. Cope, Graham F. // Journal of Renal Nursing;2012, Vol. 4 Issue 3, p142
Graham Cope outlines the ways in which smoking impairs both kidney function and prognosis in kidney disease. Knowledge of the negative impact of cigarette smoking in renal disease can assist the nurse in educating and supporting patients in smoking cessation.
- The anemia of chronic renal failure: Pathophysiology and the effects of recombinant erythropoietin. Eschbach, Joseph W. // Kidney International;Jan1989, Vol. 35 Issue 1, p134
Presents a case of a 40-year-old man who has undergone chronic hemodialysis for seven years. Case history; Detection of proteinuria; Renal transplantation; Diagnosis of the hypoproliferative anemia of uncomplicated chronic renal disease.
- Chronic renal diseases as a public health problem: Epidemiology, social, and economic implications. Schieppati, Arrigo; Remuzzi, Giuseppe // Kidney International Supplement;Sep2005, Issue 98, pS7
Chronic renal diseases as a public health problem: Epidemiology, social, and economic implications. The impact of chronic kidney disease (CKD) on the global burden of diseases is probably underestimated by current methods of evaluation. However, CKD are emerging as a major health problem....
- IgA nephropathy in identical twins: an excellent donor and recipient outcome 11 years after transplantation. Irvine, John; Cross, Nicholas; Lynn, Kelvin; Robson, Richard; Searle, Martin; Morton, John; Armstrong, Sarah; Roake, Justin // Clinical Kidney Journal;Jun2012, Vol. 5 Issue 3, p232
We present a case of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) in monozygotic twins with excellent donor and recipient outcome 11 years after transplantation. The recipient developed IgAN at 26 years and progressed to end-stage renal failure 10 years later. His identical twin who had hypertension, intermittent...
- Effect of dialysis and renal transplantation on autonomic dysfunction in chronic renal failure. Agarwal, Anupam; Anand, Inder S.; Sakhuja, Vinay; Chugh, Kirpal S. // Kidney International;Sep1991, Vol. 40 Issue 3, p489
Autonomic functions were evaluated in 25 nondialyzed patients with chronic renal failure and eight controls. Eight patients were reassessed after 6.6 Â± 1.0 weeks of hemodialysis and 12 patients were restudied 24 Â± 4.0 weeks after renal transplantation. In addition, six patients who had...
