Background and objectives Outcomes of kidney transplant recipients diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019 as outpatients have not been described. Design, setting, participants, & measurements We obtained clinical data for 41 consecutive outpatient kidney transplant recipients with known or suspected coronavirus disease 2019. Chi-squared and Wilcoxon rank sum tests were used to compare characteristics of patients who required hospitalization versus those who did not. Results Of 41 patients, 22 (...

The past few years have seen major advances in genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of CKD and kidney function–related traits in several areas: increases in sample size from >100,000 to >1 million, enabling the discovery of >250 associated genetic loci that are highly reproducible; the inclusion of participants not only of European but also of non-European ancestries; and the use of advanced computational methods to integrate additional genomic and other unbiased, high-dimensional data to char...

As the field of kidney transplantation searches for new ways to expand utilization of deceased donor kidneys while maintaining adequate outcomes, learning from past experience and deciding on the most promising avenues to expand practice continue. In the article by Helantera et al. ([1][1]), data

Background and objectives Increased donor age is one of the most important risk factors for delayed graft function (DGF), and previous studies suggest that the harmful effect of cold ischemia time is increased in kidneys from older donors. Our aim was to study the association of increased donor age and cold ischemia time with the risk of delayed graft function in a large cohort kidney transplants from the current era. Design, setting, participants, & measurements The Scientific Registry of Trans...

“Just follow your heart, do what makes you happy” is the unsolicited career guidance that medical trainees will receive by almost everyone they come across. Happiness, that is the ultimate goal when it comes to making career decisions, right? I am a postdoctoral researcher interested in kidney

Each year in the United States, nearly 800,000 people experience a stroke, which can cause detrimental effects on functional status, independence, and quality of life. Approximately 25% of these strokes are recurrent strokes with a case mortality rate of 41% (versus 22% for an initial stroke) ([1][1

When I was in medical school, a surgery resident jokingly told me about the triple point, the spot just below the sternum where one could place their stethoscope to get the surgeon’s physical exam done in 5 seconds or less. It was at this point that one could verify breath sounds, a regular

Assessment of GFR is central to clinical practice, research, and public health. Current Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes guidelines recommend measurement of serum creatinine to estimate GFR as the initial step in GFR evaluation. Serum creatinine is influenced by creatinine metabolism as well as GFR; hence, all equations to estimate GFR from serum creatinine include surrogates for muscle mass, such as age, sex, race, height, or weight. The guideline-recommended equation in adults (the 200...
