Acute Renal Failure: A Rare Presentation of Hypothyroidism
Thyroid hormones affect the function of almost every body organ, and thyroid dysfunction produces a wide range of metabolic disturbances. Severe hypothyroidism is associated with significant effects on the kidney. The ...
Effect of sodium-potassium pump inhibition by ouabain on the permeability of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum
The permeability for small solutes and the ultrafiltration capacity of the peritoneum are essential for effective peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. Elucidation of the factors that regulate these two properties is therefore ...
Aeromonas hydrophila as a causative organism in peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis: case report and review of the literature
Most episodes of peritoneal dialysis (PD)-related peritonitis could be attributed to a single organism, but in almost 10% of peritonitis episodes multiple organisms are identified. Polymicrobial peritonitis is often related ...
Effect of adrenaline on the electrophysiologic profile of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum
The peritoneal mesothelium is a barrier to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In the present study, we investigated, by means of Ussing chamber experiments, the effect of adrenaline on the electrical transepithelial ...
Gross calcification of the small bowel in a continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patient with sclerosing peritonitis
We present here the case of a continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patient who developed sclerosing calcifying peritonitis with gross macroscopic calcification of the small bowel, a rare and life-threatening ...
Influence of the sodium transport inhibition by amiloride on the transmesothelial resistance of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum
The peritoneal mesothelium is a barrier to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In the present study, we used Ussing chamber experiments to investigate the effect of amiloride on the transmesothelial electrical resistance ...
