Drug-induced hypertension is one of the commonest causes of secondary hypertension. In the last few years, secondary hypertension due to tyrosine kinase inhibitors, from the vascular endothelial growth factor class, has been recognized to be an important cause of hypertension, as well as proteinuria, and occasionally kidney dysfunction in some cases. Less well-recognized is that BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitors also have adverse vascular effects. These manifest as vascular stenoses in large ve...

BACKGROUND: It is important for medical practitioners to be aware of the effect of iodinated contrast media on the residual renal function (RRF) of dialysis patients who require diagnostic or therapeutic imaging procedures. Preservation of RRF is important given that it is a robust predictor of higher survival. However, the absence of any effect would allow for easier diagnostic or therapeutic imaging tests to be performed. OBJECTIVE: This systematic review with meta-analysis will quantify the e...

Background Sustained low-efficiency dialysis (SLED) is a hybrid form of dialysis that is increasingly used in critically ill patients with kidney injury and hemodynamic instability. Antimicrobial dosing for patients receiving SLED is informed by pharmacokinetic studies that describe the drug clearance. Studies available to assist in the dosing of vancomycin in the context of SLED are lacking.

Abstract Revascularization of atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis may cure hypertension but paradoxically, improvement in systemic blood pressure in response to successful revascularization may precipitate ischemia in other organs affected by “previously silent atherosclerotic disease”. We describe bowel ischemia secondary to pre-existing celiac artery stenosis after revascularisation. Prior knowledge of multivessel disease facilitated prompt diagnosis and management of this condition.

Purpose of reviewIn recent years, doubt has been cast on the existence of contrast-induced acute kidney injury. The skepticism has stemmed from observational studies from large administrative healthcare databases. Although they correctly call that contrast-induced acute kidney injury is less common

Neuropsychiatric conditions such as depression, delirium and cognitive impairment are common in patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and individuals suffering from ESKD are more likely to commit suicide than members of the general population. Self-harm gestures are not infrequent for ESKD patients suffering from depression, but not well described in other conditions. We present a case of self-harm in a patient with ESKD suffering from acute delirium. A man in his mid-seventies was admit...
