Women with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are faced with complex decisions and significant challenges during their reproductive years. Contraceptive choices have a variety of side effects that can disproportionately affect women with CKD, limiting choice. CKD itself and the therapies needed to treat severe disease can affect future fertility. When conception is desired, young women with CKD must plan meticulously because an ill-timed pregnancy can result in disease progression or flare and exposur...

Total-body potassium (K + ) content and appropriate distribution of K + across the cell membrane is vitally important for normal cellular function. Total-body K + content is determined by changes in excretion of K + by the kidneys in response to intake levels. Under normal conditions, insulin and β-adrenergic tone also make important contributions in maintaining internal distribution of K + . However, despite these homeostatic pathways, disorders of altered K + homeostasis are common. Appreciati...
Rationale & Objective Ventricular assist devices (VADs) are used for end-stage heart failure not amenable to medical therapy. Acute kidney injury (AKI) in this setting is common due to heart failure decompensation, surgical stress, and other factors. Little is known about national trends in AKI diagnosis and AKI requiring dialysis (AKI-D) and associated outcomes with VAD implantation. We investigated national estimates and trends for diagnosed AKI, AKI-D, and associated patient and resource util...
