  1. 1. Urinary Biomarkers and Patient Outcome in Chronic Kidney Disease and Atherosclerotic Heart Disease: The value of IgM-uria and IgG-uria

    University dissertation from Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Author : Rafid Tofik; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Albuminuria; Proteinuria; urine IgM; urine IgG; glomerulonephritis; chronic kidney disease; atherosclerosis; cardiovascular disease; diabetic kidney disease.;

    Abstract : Risk stratification of patients with chronic kidney disease and atherosclerotic heart disease is crucial. Microalbuminuria (MA) is associated with an increased risk of kidney and cardiovascular (CV) death, especially in patients with diabetes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Hemoglobin Normalization with Epoetin in Chronic Kidney Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hans Furuland; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Internal medicine; Anemia; blood viscosity; cardiac output; chronic kidney disease; renal dialysis; dialysis adequacy; erythopoietin; heart rate variability; hemoglobin; hemorheology; hypertension; kidney transplantation; Kt V; left ventricular hypertrophy; Quality of Life; Invärtesmedicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Anemia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CDK), contributes to reduced Quality of Life (QoL) and is associated with cardiovascular disease, morbidity and mortality. Epoetin raises hemoglobin (Hb) and increases QoL and physical exercise capacity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation of Myocardial Function in Chronic Kidney Disease A Colour Tissue Velocity Imaging Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Shirley Hayashi; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac; Kidney; Tissue; Velocity; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : In patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), overhydration, uremic toxins and left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony are factors that may lead to LV dysfunction and conduction abnormalities and thus contribute to the high cardiac mortality. Colour tissue velocity imaging (TVI) allows a detailed quantitative analysis of cardiac function in CKD patients, opening new possibilities to evaluate longitudinal myocardial motion, rapid isovolumetric events, LV filling pressure and LV synchronicity.

  4. 4. Cardiovascular disease and diabetes or renal insufficiency the risk of ischemic stroke and risk factor intervention

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Stina Jakobsson; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiovascular disease; secondary prevention; diabetes mellitus; chronic kidney disease; acute coronary syndrome; stroke; randomized control trial; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Abstract : BackgroundIn patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) or chronic kidney disease (CKD), established cardiovascular disease (CVD) is associated with an increased risk of recurrent events and poor outcome. Ischemic stroke after an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a devastating event that carries high risks of decreased patient independence and death. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis of risk factors in patients with severe chronic kidney disease. The role of atorvastatin

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Benny Holmberg; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atorvastatin; cholesterol; chronic kidney disease; haemodialysis; cholesterol; lipids; peritoneal dialysis; risk factors; statins; inter dialysis weight gain;

    Abstract : Background and aim: There had been no randomized end-point studies with statins for patients with severe renal failure. The purpose of this prospective, open, randomized, controlled study was to investigate whether atorvastatin (10 mg/day) would alter cardiovascular end-points and the overall mortality rate of patients with chronic kidney disease stage 4 or 5 (creatinine clearance</30 ml/min) and to influence risk factors.
