Introduction. Adequate delivered dose of solute removal (as assessed by urea reduction and calculation of Kt/V) is an important determinant of clinical outcome in chronic haemodialysis (HD) patients. The requirement for multiple blood sampling and efforts taken to minimize the effects of rebound...
The first choice for imaging diagnosis of parathyroid gland (PTG) abnormalities is ultrasonography with a high‐frequency probe. The patient must be positioned correctly when performing either imaging or percutaneous ethanol injection (PEIT) of the PTG. The enlarged PTGs are examined by...

Uraemic patients with advanced secondary hyperparathyroidism (2HPT) have nodular hyperplastic glands with a decreased vitamin D receptor (VDR) density. Previous studies have shown that nodular hyperplasia expressed a significantly lower VDR density as compared with diffuse hyperplasia, and the...
A multicentre trial of percutaneous calcitriol injection therapy (PCIT) was designed to evaluate its clinical usefulness. During a 12‐week period, measurement of intact PTH concentration, and other parameters, and ultrasonography were carried out in conjunction with PCIT in 19 haemodialysis...
