Uremic pericarditis developed in 37 of 295 patients (8 percent) admitted to the chronic hemodialysis program at our institution. Sixteen patients (43%) underwent limited pericardiectomy through a left anterior thoracotomy approach with no operative deaths and minimal morbidity (19%). Twenty-one patients (57%) were treated successfully with intensive hemodialysis. The use ...

Four of five patients with chronic renal failure developed tense bullae on the backs of their hands and fingers. In one of these patients the bullae were more widespread. In the fifth patient the lesions were limited to the fingers. The clinical picture resembled that of porphyria cutanea tarda, but ...

The mechanisms responsible for the transient respiratory alkalosis which follows clinical hemodialysis were evaluated by studying the ventilatory response to carbon dioxide in chronic uremic patients, and in unanesthetized normal and chronic uremic goats. A significant increase in sensitivity to CO2 was found in acidotic uremic patients immediately (within 30 ...

Neutron activation analysis of a hand has been used to monitor changes in skeletal calcium content of patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis. Assessed by this technic supplementary magnesium therapy was of value of reducing the progressive losses of skeletal calcium in a proportion of the patients receiving maintenance hemodialysis. Oral calcium ...

Arteriovenous fistulas were created on 21 occasions in 18 patients using an interposed segment of processed bovine carotid artery. In 18 fistulas, there were loops in the femoral region, and in three, they were created in the forearm. Seventeen of 21 fistulas developed a useful patency, with useful patency being ...

The myocardial cobalt concentration in a patient who died 3 months after treatment with cobalt was 25-80 times greater than the concentration in control samples. Blood cobalt concentrations in maintenance hemodialysis patients who had been treated 13-20 months previously with cobaltous chloride were significantly higher than those in maintenance hemodialysis ...

In addition to the somatic problems associated with uremia and dialysis it is apparent that successful hemodialysis is dependent upon psychological adjustment to this type of therapy. While previous studies have focused on the patient or spouse as individuals, patterns of marital interactions and conflicts have not been systematically evaluated. ...

Two patients with intractable massive proteinuria and uremia were followed and treated with standard mecial therapy and dialysis. After a period of study and demonstration of clinical deterioration both patients were given solutions containing sodium mercaptomerin. Within days there was a decline in urine protein excretion and a variable increase ...

99Tcm-polyphosphate (Tc-PP) bone scintigraphy was performed in 30 consecutive uremic patients on regular hemodialysis and compared with a normal control group. 27 of the patients (90%) had pathological accumulation on the scintigrams, while roentgenographic abnormalities were present in only 10 patients (33%), indicating that scintigraphy is superior to X-ray in ...

The results of 100 modified bovine heterografts constructed in 93 patients for subcutaneous arteriovenous fistulas for chronic hemodialysis have been reviewed. Fifty-seven patients had the bovine heterograft inserted as the primary method of vascular access. Twenty-eight patients had complications consisting of graft thrombosis and stenosis, graft infection, and hemorrhage that ...

To increase mobility for home hemodialysis patients, a portable, light weight hemodialysis system has been bench and field tested. The combination of a 21 L dialysate reservoir and small, high speed blood and dialysate pumps has permitted the entire system to be contained in a twenty two pound, 22 X ...

In 7 patients with less than 4 months of regular hemodialysis treatment (RDT), in 28 patients with more than 4 months RDT and in 9 normal subjects, the skin window technic of Rebuck and Crowley was used to study the cellular response and the phagocytic activity of macrophages. Phagocytosis of ...

Hemodialysis can be performed safely and satisfactorily in the home. It is the method of choice for long-term maintence dialysis in properly selected patients and offers an excellent opportunity for porlonged survival and rehabilitation. Minimal criteria include the availability of an assistant, suitable physical facilities, appropriate age, adequate intellectual capacity ...

The effects of intramuscular 200-mg nortestosterone decanoate (ND) on red cell 2,3 diphosphoglycerate (DPG) concentration and packed cell volumes (PCV) were compared in 9 patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis for renal failure and in 18 control patients undergoing hemodialysis but not receiving ND. Subjects had received the drug 4.3 plus or ...

A red cell metabolic abnormality, which diminishes the maximum activity of the pentose phosphate shunt, occurs in some uremic patients, even those adequately dialyzed with fluids prepared from distilled or charcoal-filtered water. Within individual patients the severity of this abnormality does not change even after 9 mo of consecutive hemodialyses. ...

In conclusion, patients on chronic maintenance dialysis have an increased incidence of death from cardiovascular disease. Hypertension plays a major role, and these patients must be carefully monitored for complete control of blood pressure. Adequacy of ultrafiltration to maintain normal extracellular volume is an essential part of the dialytic treatment. ...

A case of intramural esophageal hemorrhage in a hemodialysis patient is described. The hemorrhage followed an episode of vomiting and violent retching. Spontaneous resolution occurred with conservative management. The clinical course resembled that of previous case reports of intramural esophageal hemorrhage, whether or not associated with chronic renal failure and ...
