The authors report their recent experience with renal autotransplantation (3 cases). In one case it concerned a complex aneurysm of the renal artery involving secondary arterial renal branches, and associated with hydronephrosis (case 1); another patient presented a high ureteral injury unsuccessfully repaired by previous surgery (case 2), and the third patient had diffuse fibrodysplasia of intrahilar arterial branches (case 3). The procedures were technically successful and gave good functional results. They describe the technique of kidney refrigeration, extracorporeal vessel repair and ureteral preservation or reimplantation. Indications and technical advantages of this organ-saving reconstructive approach are discussed. [less ▲]

We have investigated 65 children with isolated hematuria persisting for at least a year. Renal biopsy specimens were studied by light microscopy, electron microscopy and immunofluorescence with antisera specific against basement membrane components. The majority of the biopsies (62/65) showed variable histologic abnormalities. Four categories could be distinguished on combined histological and clinical criteria: Alport syndrome (n = 8), benign hematuria (n = 33, familial in 23), IgA nephropathy (n = 16) and increase in mesangial cells and matrix (n = 5). On the basis of our results, we suggest that a renal biopsy can establish diagnosis and prognosis in those children with isolated hematuria where the family history is negative. If the family has adult male individuals with isolated hematuria, a biopsy can usually be avoided, since this family history effectively excludes Alport syndrome. The use of antisera against basement membrane components did not allow a differentiation between Alport syndrome and benign hematuria. Goodpasture serum immunofluorescence was variable in the former and normally present in the latter. [less ▲]

In a cross-sectional population study to assess whether environmental exposure to cadmium associated with renal dysfunction, 1699 subjects aged 20-80 years were studied as a random sample of four areas of Belgium with varying degrees of cadmium pollution. After standardisation fo several possible confounding factors, five variables (urinary excretion of retinol-binding protein, N-acetyl-ß-glucosaminidase, ß2-microglobulin, aminoacids, and calcium) were significantly associated with the urinary excretion of cadmium (as a marker of cadmium body burden) suggesting the presence of tubular dysfunction. There was a 10% probablility of values of these variables being abnormal when cadmium excretion exceeded 2-4 µg/24h. Excretion reached also evidence that diabetic patients may be more susceptible to the toxic effect of cadmium on the renal proximal tubule. [less ▲]

Renal insufficiency, a frequent complication with age in oral-facial-digital syndrome type I. The oral-facial-digital syndrome type I (OFD I) is characterized by multiple congenital malformations of the face, oral cavity and digits. A polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is found in about one-third of patients but long-term outcome and complications are not well described in the international literature. Renal findings have been retrospectively collected in a cohort of 34 females all carrying a pathogenic mutation in the OFD1 gene with ages ranging from 1 to 65 years. Twelve patients presented with PKD - 11/16 (69%) if only adults were considered -with a median age at diagnosis of 29 years [IQR (interquartile range) = (23.5-38)]. Among them, 10 also presented with renal impairment and 6 were grafted (median age = 38 years [IQR = (25-48)]. One grafted patient under immunosuppressive treatment died from a tumor originated from a native kidney. The probability to develop renal failure was estimated to be more than 50% after the age of 36 years. Besides, neither genotype-phenotype correlation nor clinical predictive association with renal failure could be evidenced. These data reveal an unsuspected high incidence rate of the renal impairment outcome in OFD I syndrome. A systematic ultrasound (US) and renal function follow-up is therefore highly recommended for all OFD I patients. [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION: Outcome studies in patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) have focused on differences between modalities of renal replacement therapy (RRT). The outcome of conservative treatment, however, has never been compared with RRT. METHODS: Nine Belgian intensive care units (ICUs) included all adult patients consecutively admitted with serum creatinine >2 mg/dl. Included treatment options were conservative treatment and intermittent or continuous RRT. Disease severity was determined using the Stuivenberg Hospital Acute Renal Failure (SHARF) score. Outcome parameters studied were mortality, hospital length of stay and renal recovery at hospital discharge. RESULTS: Out of 1,303 included patients, 650 required RRT (58% intermittent, 42% continuous RRT). Overall results showed a higher mortality (43% versus 58%) as well as a longer ICU and hospital stay in RRT patients compared to conservative treatment. Using the SHARF score for adjustment of disease severity, an increased risk of death for RRT compared to conservative treatment of RR = 1.75 (95% CI: 1.4 to 2.3) was found. Additional correction for other severity parameters (Acute Physiology And Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II), Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA)), age, type of AKI and clinical conditions confirmed the higher mortality in the RRT group. CONCLUSIONS: The SHARF study showed that the higher mortality expected in AKI patients receiving RRT versus conservative treatment can not only be explained by a higher disease severity in the RRT group, even after multiple corrections. A more critical approach to the need for RRT in AKI patients seems to be arranted [less ▲]
