The peripheral artery disease is frequent among patients undergoing hemodialysis much more than in the general population. The ankle-brachial index (AB!) is a potent tool to screen this pathology. We analysed the relationship between ABI abnormal values and arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) complications such as stenosis and thrombosis among chronically hemodialysis pat ients (HD). [less ▲]

Background: Prevalence of stage 3 chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasing according to the NHANES study. Prevalence has been calculated using the MDRD study equation for estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Recently, a new estimator based on creatinine, the CKD-EPI equation, has been proposed which is presumed to better perform in normal GFR ranges. The aim of the study was to measure the difference in prevalence of stage 3 CKD in a population using either the MDRD or the CKD-EPI study equations. Methods: CKDscreening is organized in the Province of Liège, Belgium. On a voluntary basis, people aged between 45 and 75 years are invited to be screened. GFR is estimated by the MDRD study equation and by the "new" CKD-EPI equations. Results: The population screened consisted in 1992 people (47% of men). Mean serum creatinine was 0.86 ± 0.20 mg/dl. The prevalence of stage 3 CKD in this population using the MDRD or the CKD-EPI equations was 11.04 and 7.98%, respectively. The prevalence of stage 3 CKD is significantly higher with the MDRD study equation (p <0,0012). Conclusions: Prevalence of stage 3 CKDvaries strongly following the method used for estimating GFR, MDRD or CKDEPI study equations. Such discrepancies are of importance and must be confirmed and explained by additional studies using GFR measured with a reference method. [less ▲]

Nous avons récemment eu l'honneur de recevoir l'Hypertension Young Investigator Award 2009 adressé par le Comité belge de Lutte contre l'Hypertension et soutenu par la fondation Astra Zeneca. Notre projet propose d'étudier différents indices cardiovasculaires au sein d'une population constituée de patients diabétiques de type 1. L'étude de la pression artérielle, estimée par différentes méthodes, ainsi que l'estimation de la rigidité artérielle chez ces patients pourraient être utiles afin d'apprécier le statut cardiovasculaire chez ces patients à haut risque. Notre service possède une certaine expérience dans la recherche et l'estimation de la neuropathie autonome cardiovasculaire (NAC) chez les patients diabétiques de type 1. Cette complication du diabète est associée à une morbi-mortalité d'origine cardiovasculaire accrue. Nous allons proposer une batterie de tests classiquement effectués dans le cadre de la recherche d'une NAC (en utilisant la technique du Finapress°). Ceux-ci seront combinés à d'autres explorations réalisées par nos confrères néphrologues (mesure ambulatoire de 24 heures de la pression artéielle ou MAPA et Sphygmocor°). Tous ces examens ont l'avantage d'être non-invasifs et peuvent être réalisés en routine clinique. Le recrutement de cette étude devrait permettre d'inclure une soixantaine de patients diabétiques de type 1 âgés de 20 à 50 ans et dont la durée de diabète varie entre 10 et 30 années. Cette population sera comparée à une cohorte de sujet sains apariés pour l'âge, l'indice de masse corporelle et le sexe. Plusieurs mesures sont effectuées et certains indices pourront être calculés après la réalisation des différents examens. Une comparaison entre les deux cohortes (diabétiques versus non-diabétiques) sera effectuée. L'évolution de certains paramètres au sein de la population diabétique sera aussi analysée (en fonction de l'âge et la durée du diabète par exemple). [less ▲]

The HOPE and EUROPA clinical studies have shown that treatment with the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, ramipril and perindopril, may reduce the occurence of major cardiovascular events in patients with proven atherosclerotic disease. The recently published results of the PRoFESS and TRANSCEND trials completed the much needed information concerning the use of an angiotensin receptor blocker for patients at high risk of cardiovascular events. PRoFESS compared a therapy of telmisartan 80 mg daily with placebo in patients with a recent ischemic stroke. The difference in the primary outcome of first recurrent stroke was not statistically significant between telmisartan and placebo. The secondary outcome of major cardiovascular events showed a relative risk reduction (RRR) of 7% in favour of telmsartan. This tended to be significant (p=0.06) despite a rather short follow-up period of only 28 months. In TRANSCEND 5,926 patients at high risk for cardiovascular events were randomized to a treatment with telmisartan 80 mg daily or placebo for a mean duration of follow-up of 56 months. The primary composite outcome of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, stroke or hospitalization for heart failure showed a non-significant 8% RRR in favour of the telmisartan treated patients. The main secondary outcome of cardiovascular death and myocardial infarction or stroke as used in the HOPE trial showed a non-significant RRR of 13% in favour of telmisartan treated patients (p=0,068 adjusted for multiplicity of comparisons). In comparing the Kaplan-Meier curves for the endpoint of major cardiovascular events used in HOPE, EUROPA, TRANSCEND and PRoFESS, the trends are similar. Results of most of th recently published trials have been neutral. This could partly be explained by major improvements in the optimal background therapy of the patients included. Nevertheless, the results of PRoFESS and TRANSCEND do not contradict the results from previous studies with the ACE inhibitors ramipril and perindopril and the ARB telmisartan. [less ▲]

We report the case of an acute renal failure due to an acute interstitial nephropathy (ATIN) induced by non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). Even though this pathology is a rare cause of acute renal failure, it still requires special attention in view of the fact that it induces a high risk of acute morbidity but it also can evolve into chronic renal failure. Its differential diagnosis with other causes of acute renal failure becomes essential because of the different therapeutic care. In this article, we are going to briefly sum up the reasoning to adopt in order to diagnose an acute renal failure. [less ▲]

Therapeutic inertia, i.e. the absence of introduction of an antihypertensive treatment or on adjustment of its intensity by the medical doctor if the blood pressure is elevated or the goal not reached, is frequent and does play a role in the insufficient control of blood presure in the hypertensive population. The responsibility of the medical doctor is high in this respect. A strict medical approach is required, step by step, to correct this lack of reaction. [less ▲]

A successful transplantation implies that immunosuppressive drugs will have to be taken during the whole patient’s life. Poor drug compliance is a multifactorial problem, that is particularly dangerous in organ transplantation as it can lead to loss of graft function and return to dialysis treatment. The medical doctor must stimulate the patient’s adherence to the strict therapeutic drug protocol. The patient must also be reminded at each medical consultation of the importance of such rigorous drug intake. This bad (or non) compliance is particularly well demonstrated a long time after transplantation. The medical staff, all the health participants, but also the family members must continuously fight against non compliance, which is inherent to any chronic disease. [less ▲]

S’il est unanimement admis que le traitement de l’hypertension artérielle améliore le pronostic cardiovasculaire des patients qui en sont atteints, force est de constater que la moitié des patients traités n’ont pas leur pression artérielle normalisée. Un des facteurs responsables de ce relatif échec est la mauvaise adhésion au traitement (non médicamenteux et pharmacologique). Ce problème d’observance est multifactoriel. Interviennent le patient, sa maladie, son traitement et l’environnement thérapeutique où la relation médecin-malade joue un grand rôle. Pour améliorer l’observance, comme d’ailleurs la persistance du traitement, il faut d’abord y penser. Le dialogue avec le patient sur l’observance doit être mené à chaque consultation. Une excellente relation médecin-patient, une éducation sur l’hypertension, ses risques et les moyens d’éviter les complications, le choix de schémas de traitement bien tolérés, simplifiés et introduits progressivement, la recherche et la limitation des effets secondaires générés, le partenariat de la famille et du pharmacien dans la prise en charge, la stimulation de l’automesure de la pression artérielle par le patient sont autant de pistes importantes pour améliorer ce paramètre. Ceci permettrait, à coup sûr, de réduire les complications cardiovasculaires liées à l’hypertension et le coût pour la société. [less ▲]

Oedema is a frequent disorder and the easily detectable consequence of an increase of fluid located in the interstitial tissue. It could be localized or generalized and related either to a primary disturbance of hemodynamics at the capillary level, due to a modification of the Starling’s law components with secondary water and saline retention, or to a primary retention of salt and water linked to a kidney abnormality. Generalized forms are pitting oedema, most often painless, white, bilateral and symmetric, distributed at the lower part of the body (localisation according to the gravitation law). They are different in their characteristics from localized oedema or lymphoedema which are tough. We propose a diagnostic approach based on medical history, clinical examination which allows a confident medical diagnosis and so an adapted therapy. [less ▲]

Serum creatinine is certainly one of the most prescribed biological parameters. In this review article, we remind some historical data regarding creatinine. Different methodologies to measure creatinine in blood and urine are deeply described. We also discuss the physiological reason for its use as a glomerular filtration rate marker. However, analytical and physiological limitations are described and discussed. Creatinine clearance usefulness is finally largely discussed. [less ▲]

Introduction: Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) has emerged as a promising marker for the detection of acute kidney injury. This marker has been proposed for urinary measurement. However, in the literature, authors indistinctly use "absolute" value or NGAL to creatinine ratio. Up to now, there are no strong arguments favouring for one. This question is of importance as this marker is sensed to be used only on urine random samples. To find an answer to this very practical matter, one approach could be to compare biological CV(intra-individual variation) of the "absolute" and ratio results. [less ▲]
