Markers of uremia and pericardial effusion in peritoneal dialysis
Inadequate dialysis causes accumulation of toxic residues that may lead to the development of dialysis-associated pericardial effusion, but several other factors could be associated with this abnormality. The purpose of ...
Histochemical study of the skeletal muscle in children with chronic renal failure in dialysis treatment
(Academia Brasileira de Neurologia - ABNEURO, 1998-09-01)
Among the modifications occurring in the uremic organism, in addition to the consequences of dialysis, myophathy and peripheral neuropathy are very significant. Children are particularly affected, as their growth and ...
Greater level of physical activity associated with better cognitive function in hemodialysis in end stage renal disease
(Jornal Brasileiro De Nefrologia : ʹorgão Oficial De Sociedades Brasileira E Latino-americana De Nefrologia, 2012)
Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a lower exercise tolerance and poor functional capacity, carry on a sedentary lifestyle. Another important change found in patients with CKD is cognitive dysfunction. Physical ...
Comportamento do índice de massa do ventrículo esquerdo de pacientes em diálise no decorrer de 17 anos
(Sociedade Brasileira de Nefrologia, 2015-09-01)
AbstractIntroduction:Ventricular hypertrophy is frequent in dialysis patients and is associated with an ominous prognosis. It is not knowledge if this ventricular change is growing or decreasing in hemodialysis ...
Free p-Cresol Alters Neutrophil Function in Dogs
To achieve a clearer understanding of the mechanisms responsible for neutrophil dysfunction recently described in dogs with chronic renal failure (CRF), the plasma concentrations of free p-cresol in healthy dogs (n = 20) ...
Síndrome de piernas inquietas: Estudio clínico en población general adulta y en pacientes urémicos

A toxina urêmica ácido guanidinicoacético inibe o metabolismo oxidativo dos neutrófilos de cães
Among the uremic toxins proven to affect the neutrophil function in humans with chronic kidney disease (CKD), guanidine compounds stand out. To achieve a clearer understanding of the mechanisms that affect the immunity of ...
The uremic toxin methylguanidine increases the oxidative metabolism and accelerates the apoptosis of canine neutrophils
We investigated the hypothesis that the increased concentration of plasma methylguanidine (MG) increases oxidative metabolism and accelerates apoptosis of neutrophils from dogs with chronic kidney disease (CKD). To achieve ...
Association between indoxyl sulfate and bone histomorphometry in pre-dialysis chronic kidney disease patients
(Sociedade Brasileira de Nefrologia, 2014-09-01)
Introduction: Experimental studies have suggested that indoxyl sulfate (IS), a protein-bound uremic toxin, may be involved in the development of renal osteodystrophy. Objective: evaluate the association between IS levels ...
