Review Article Volume 2 Issue 1

Amyloidosis and the Kidney

Authors: Allison B Reiss, Nicolle M Siegart, Heather A Renna, Joshua DeLeon, Lora J Kasselman and Nobuyuki Miyawaki

Abstract: Amyloidosis results from deposition of fibrillar proteinaceous material in the extracellular space in organs and tissues. Diagnosis is made microscopically on biopsy by visualizing apple-green birefringence in Congo red-stained sections under polarized light. Renal amyloidosis most often leads to glomerular deposits, resulting in proteinuria.

Acute Kidney Injury After Cardiac Surgery - Risk Factors for Renal Replacement Therapy

Authors: N-I Lahdenperä, RT Suojaranta-Ylinen, S Nisula and AA Schramko

Abstract: Acute kidney injury (AKI) occurs in up to 50% of patients after open cardiac surgery, and it is associated with significantly increased morbidity and mortality. Up to 3% of patients need renal replacement therapy (RRT) due to severe AKI. The need for RRT further impairs outcome of those patients. The aim of this study was to investigate risks for RRT after open cardiac surgery in Finland.
