A 56-year-old man with multiple myeloma and compromised renal function underwent peritoneal dialysis for the treatment of severe hypercalcemia. During dialysis, peritoneal clearances, of total calcium, unbound calcium, urea, and creatinine were assessed. Clearances of total calcium (4.8 ± 0.4...
Quantative data on plasma levels of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) in renal failure are limited. We measured predialysis plasma ADH levels using a double antibody radioimmunoassay in 14 patients with end-stage renal failure. Plasma ADH was inappropriately elevated in the majority of tested patients...
Acinetobacter Calcoaceticus peritonitis was seen during the course of peritoneal dialysis in two patients with end-stage kidney disease within a 3-month period. In one patient, the isolate was A. Calcoaceticus Varient Anitratus (formerly Herellea Vaginicola) and in the other it was A....
The protein binding of bilirubin was determined in the plasma of seven adult surgically anephric patients, eight adult physiologically anephric patients (creatinine clearance < 5 ml/min) and 13 adult normal volunteers. The determinations were carried out with undiluted plasma to which bilirubin,...
In order to determine the molecular basis for the loss of catechol-amine responsiveness in skeletal muscle in chronic azotemia, plasma and serum levels of catecholamines and other hormones whose mechanism of action are associated in part with cyclic nucleotide mediation were assessed in 37...
Repeated episodes of acute renal flank Fain were observed in a uremic patient on maintenance hemodialysis. Computer tomography during the acute attack repeatedly showed unilateral hydronephrosis which always subsided after passage of stones. X-ray failed to visualize the non-radioorsaque stones...
A technique for the salvage of looped forearm graft arteriovenous fistulae utilizing extension of the venous limb to the subclavian vein is described. Results have been excellent with extension of the functional life of the fistulae.
Seven maintenance hemodialysis patients suffering from intractable uremic pericardial effusion were treated with instillation of a non-absorbable steroid, triamcinolone hexacetonide, into the pericardial sac via a large-bore catheter. The latter was placed under direct vision by subxiphoid...
Scrim lipids were studied in 25 stable renal transplant recipients 3–60 months after transplantation, 25 stable patients maintained on hemodialysis, and 16 steroid-treated patients with normal renal functions. Lipid abnormalities were found in 72% of the transplant patients and 52% of dialysis...
