Post-transplantation renal artery stenosis is recognized at relatively early periods after renal transplantation. We report herein our experience of utilizing transluminal expanded metal stents (Palmaz stent and Wall stent) for post-transplantation renal artery stenosis, and monitoring with...
Japan has the highest prevalence of dialysis patients in the world. According to the Annual Report of the Japanese Society for Dialysis Therapy (JSDT; 2002), the total dialysis population was 229 538 (1801.5 patients per million population) at the end of 2002. The annual crude mortality rate has...
The clinical course and renal histological changes in two patients with congenital nephrotic syndrome are presented. Both patients developed edema and proteinuria at 2 days of age. Steroids and immunosuppressive drugs were not used in either patient. One patient showed gradual disappearance of...
By injecting OCT into the peritoneal cavity, i-PTH levels could be significantly decreased. These findings indicate the therapeutic efficacy of intraperitoneal administration of OCT for CAPD patients.
The present study demonstrated that vegetable protein with the same amino-acid composition could enhance the GFR in healthy subjects as much as animal protein.
Calcium oxalate (CaOx), calcium phosphate (CaP), and uric acid or urate are the most common crystals seen in the kidneys. Most of the crystals evoke an inflammatory response leading to fibrosis, loss of nephrons, and eventually to chronic renal failure. Of the three, CaOx monohydrate is the most...
We report on a hemodialysis (HD) patient in whom fatal aplastic anemia developed after the administration of nizatidine, a histamine 2 (H2)-receptor antagonist. The patient was a 55-year old Japanese woman and had been on HD for 2 years due to endstage diabetic nephropathy. The patient had a...
We report the beneficial effect of control of anemia on hyperinsulinemia and hypoxemia in a hemodialysis patient with corrected transposition of the great arteries. The patient’s hemoglobin (Hb) level of 10.3 g/dl on admission represents good control for hemodialysis (HD) patients, but it was...
We propose that a histological criterion be used in combination with the degree of proteinuria as an indication for ST in adult IgAN patients.
Our study demonstrated that renal function at the time of biopsy and renal interstitial damage are the best predictors of survival in AL-type renal amyloidosis.
