This study assesses retrospectively the association of mortality on UFR assessments in our study population undergoing HD.
Acetate-free citrate containing dialysate is expected to be clinically effective in maintaining hemodynamic stability during hemodialysis (HD). It has been demonstrated that citrate dialysate help produce a local anticoagulant effect by chelating ionized calcium. Moreover, citrate can improve phosphate and beta2 macroglobulin and better control of arterial hypertension and hemoglobinemia. We therefore would like to study the effect of citrate dialysate on clot formation and anemia while reducing heparin in chronic hemodialysis patients.
This study evaluates a collaborative care intervention in reducing depression, fatigue and pain symptoms and improving health related quality of life in hemodialysis patients. Half of participants will receive the collaborative care intervention, while the other half will receive technology delivered health education information.
The aim of our study is to assess three anticoagulation strategies for intermittent hemodialysis(IHD) in patients at risk of hemorrhage. A registry of consecutive hemodialysis patients with high risk of hemorrhage were conducted at the Guangdong General Hospital, the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, the Second Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medicine University or Guangzhou Hospital of Chinese Medicine, between October 1st, 2017 and June 30th,2018. In this multi-center prospective and randomized study, participants were randomly divided into three groups during IHD according to different anticoagulation, including with regular saline flushes, one stage regional citrate anticoagulation (RCA) and two-stage RCA.
This is a study to define strategies for Nephrologists to directly supervise and apply direct acting antivirals to cure hepatitis C in hemodialysis patients. Strategies will include identification of candidate patients, application for insurance approval, specifics of direct acting antiviral therapy (Zepatier with or without ribavirin) and laboratory monitoring during and after therapy.
Low physical activity is associated with in hemodialysis and hemodiafiltration (HDF) patients. Previous studies showed the benefits of intradialytic exercise for improvement of physical fitness and hemodialysis adequacy. However, the effect of intradialytic exercise on physical activity has not been explored. This current open-labelled randomized controlled trial is conducted in HDF patients to determine the effect of intradialytic exercise program for 6 months on daily physical activity measured by tri-axial accelerometer (wearable device).
The main objective is to establish a statistical predictive model of the risk of intradialytic hypotension during hemodialysis (HD) or hemodiafiltration (HDF) sessions based on the measurement of residual blood volume and excess extracellular hydration. The secondary objective is to study the impact of dysfunction in the mechanisms of compensation for decreased blood volume (heart disease, neuropathy, drugs) on the risk of intradialytic hypotension.
The life span of adults with end-stage renal disease is reduced, and cardiovascular disease (CVD) accounts for approximately half the deaths among those undergoing hemodialysis (HD). Vascular calcification is a key process in the development of atherosclerotic and arteriosclerotic CVD, and contributes significantly to the greater mortality rates and CVD events in HD patients. Recently, there has been growing interest in the vitamin K-dependent matrix Gla protein (MGP) and its role in inhibiting vascular calcification. Animal studies have revealed that the vitamin K-dependent protein MGP may reduce the progression of vascular calcification, possibly by means of improving vascular function. The relationship between MGP and vitamin K lies in the fact that inactive matrix Gla protein requires vitamin K to carboxylate it for its activation. Currently, data in HD patients are scant and equivocal on the effects of vitamin K supplementation on CVD risk outcomes. Therefore, the purpose of this 8-week randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial is to determine whether daily vitamin K supplementation can favorably alter measurements of endothelial function and arterial stiffness in HD patients.
High-efficiency post-dilution online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) using high-flux dialyzer and requiring high blood flow rate (BF ≥400 mL/min) has been reported to enhance protein-bound toxin and middle molecular toxin removal and improve patient survival. Unfortunately, the majority of patients could not reach that high BF because of vascular access issue. This randomized crossover study was conducted to compare these uremic toxin removals between the new modality (limited BF OL-HDF with super high-flux dialyzer) and the control (high-efficiency OL-HDF). The OL-HDF patients were randomized to undergo either new modality or control for 2 weeks before crossover to the other modality for another 2 weeks.
Online hemodiafiltration confers a reduced mortality risk. However, it is not clear why HDF improved survival. To gain more insight in this issue, the effect of 4 dialysis techniques (differing in dialysate temperature and the absence/presence of convective clearance) on intradialytic hemodynamic stability and cardiac function will be investigated in a prospective cross over trial.
