Death On Hemodialysis Preventable Or Inevitable

Death On Hemodialysis Preventable Or Inevitable

Death On Hemodialysis Preventable Or Inevitable

Death on Hemodialysis: Preventable or Inevitable? presents the transactions of the Brooklyn meeting, held in April 1993, including an analysis by Scribner and Schreiner and an introduction by Edmund Bourke. Authors include the heads of dialysis registries for Japan, Europe, and the United States, as well as protagonists of dialyser reuse and short dialysis times. Enthusiasts championed the determination of adequacy of dialysis by formulae or by clinical assessment. All chapters are direct and forceful. The reader will be able to judge the data on what are key controversies in planning dialysis protocols and schedules.

Replacement Of Renal Function By Dialysis

Replacement Of Renal Function By Dialysis

Completely revised edition of a global resource first published in 1978 and previously revised in 1989. Sixty-three contributions are arranged in sections on the pathophysiology of the uremic syndrome--principles and biophysics of dialysis; technology of dialysis and associated methods; quantification and prescription; complications; pharmacological considerations; special clinical situations; organ system and metabolic complications; and organization and results of chronic dialysis. The aim is to give understanding of the complexities of modern dialysis apparatus so that practitioners can make the best use of the technology--and so that fledgling nephrologists can avoid the temptation to by-pass the theory and the nuances.

Diabetic Renal Retinal Syndrome

Diabetic Renal Retinal Syndrome

After a decade or longer, approximately one-third of individuals with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes commence a downhill course in which decreasing renal function and failing vision define a Renal-Retinal Syndrome, dominating all aspects of life and presaging early death. Only a generation ago, survival after onset of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in diabetes was limited because rehabilitation was preempted by blindness, limb amputation, stroke, and heart disease. By 1998, however, team management has improved the outlook, with preserved sight and return to work and home responsibilities, usually for a decade or longer, following kidney transplantation and laser photocoagulation. Recognition of the critical requirement for blood pressure regulation and metabolic control are central themes in management. In this unique book, the accomplishments of ophthalmologists, nephrologists, diabetologists, transplant surgeons, and basic scientists are blended into a strategic approach that may be readily applied by all those caring for diabetic patients. Each of twenty-one presentations suitable for primary care physicians, as well as for subspecialists concerned with macrovascular and microvascular complications of diabetes, is placed in perspective by an introductory editorial analysis. Promising near-term innovative therapies, including insertion of genetically engineered beta cells or polymer-coated islets of Langerhans, interdiction of kinins that promote retinal angiogenesis, and prevention of synthesis of advanced glycosylated endproducts (AGEs), are presented in detail. While comprehensive care of diabetic patients reflects multiple incremental advances that in sum afford major benefit, this text envisions further remarkable changes likely to suppress and possibly entirely prevent the Diabetic Renal-Retinal Syndrome.

Improving Prognosis For Kidney Disorders

Improving Prognosis For Kidney Disorders

More than half a million people worldwide are now sustained by renal replacement therapy, mainly hemodialysis at a cost exceeding USD 30 billion per year. Each case of ESRD that is delayed or prevented saves funds that may be applied to other aspects of health care. Edited by an internationally renowned nephrologist, Prognosis for Kidney Disorders provides a timely summary of exciting work in progress directed toward renoprotection and of ultimate interdiction of ESRD. Suitable for researchers and clinicians, Dr. Morrell Michael Avram has collected and commented on promising initiatives likely to enter everyday practice in the immediate future. Suitable for renal trainees, experienced kidney doctors, nurses, nutritionists and cardiologists.

Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic Kidney Disease

Known worldwide, chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a disease that affects up to 4% of the population with increasing figures also in the developing countries. Life expectancy of patients affected by CKD is shortened compared to the overall population, and only a minority of patients reach end-stage renal disease (ESRD) with the need for dialysis or renal transplantation; death overtakes dialysis. In the 13 chapters, this book sheds light on the different aspects related to pathophysiology and clinical aspects of CKD, providing interesting insights into not only inflammation and cardiovascular risk but also the interplay of hormones and the functional aspects of endothelial function. In addition, chapters dealing with genetic aspects of polycystic kidney disease and also the clinical handling of patients with CKD and peritoneal dialysis will be beneficial for the open-minded reader.

The Treatment Of Glomerulonephritis

The Treatment Of Glomerulonephritis

Glomerulonephritis is one of the commonest causes of end-stage renal failure worldwide. Although there have been considerable advances in the management of renal failure by dialysis and transplantation, there has been relatively little progress in its prevention. This volume sets out to review current practice in the treatment of glomerulonephritis, which is aimed both at controlling the clinical manifestations, e.g. nephrotic syndrome, and at preventing the progression to renal failure. The term glomerulonephritis covers a wide range of conditions with different immunological, histological and clinical features. This volume therefore starts with reviews of the immunology and pathology of different types of glomerulonephritis. This is followed by detailed consideration of the treatment of the commoner primary and secondary forms of the disease. There are separate chapters on special circumstances, such as glomerulonephritis in pregnancy or following renal transplantation. In each chapter, attempts are made to review the evidence for the effectiveness of treatment, based on controlled trials, immunopathological principles and the authors' considerable experience. Although some aspects of the treatment of glomerulonephritis can be found in the standard texts on renal disease, this volume provides an up-to-date, thoroughly referenced, and practical guide to management. As such, it should be of value to nephrologists and general physicians, including those in training, and to postgraduate students of nephrology.
