A promising marker of glomerular
filtration rate to replace creatinine.
A sampling of topics in the following chapters: infection-related glomerulonephritis; discover of genes related to diabetic nephropathy in various animal models; glomerular
basement membrane disorders in experimental models; lupus nephritis; monoclonal immunoglobulin light and heavy chain deposition diseases; HIV-associated nephropathy; some contrarian evidence in renal vasculature in essential hypertension; and glomerular
repair--present status and future expectations.
At baseline, patients had a mean estimated glomerular
filtration rate of 30-59 mL/min per 1.
1-3) The pathogenesis of glomerular
disease in patients with hydatid disease is not well understood, with most supporting an immune complex-mediated mechanism.
The serum creatinine concentration remains the most common measure of graft function in kidney transplantation; however, it is affected by a variety of factors independent of the glomerular
filtration rate (GFR),5 thus limiting its predictive ability (1).
We read with interest the study of Fuster-Lluch et al (1) suggesting that glomerular
hyperfiltration (GHF) is a relatively frequent occurrence among critically ill patients admitted to the intensive care unit.
Labs that conduct the highest number of routine blood tests are more likely than others to report estimated glomerular
filtration rate (eGFR), an important measure of kidney function that can identify early kidney disease, according to a survey funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
En pacientes obstetricas con enfermedad renal, y mas especificamente glomerular
, hay aspectos que desconocemos en nuestro medio, tales como: la frecuencia, el manejo de las complicaciones y el pronostico; por lo tanto, el objetivo del presente trabajo fue determinar la frecuencia de la enfermedad glomerular
en el embarazo, sus caracteristicas clinicas, sus complicaciones y el pronostico materno-fetal en un grupo de pacientes de Colombia, y hacer una revision de la literatura pertinente.
filtration rate was calculated using serum creatinine (S.
In the hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stained sections, glomerular
diameter (x40), the glomeruli space (x100) were evaluated.
Conclusion: Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis was leading cause of primary glomerular
Objective: To determine the histopathological pattern of glomerular
lesions on per-cutaneous renal biopsy in patients presenting with proteinuria.
