Erythropoietin levels in uremic nephric and anephric
Our patient was unique in that the tumour was unmanageable endoscopically, but the option of radical nephroureterectomy would render him anephric
It is excreted by the kidneys, so the half life can be increased to 35 hours in patients with kidney failure or even longer in anephric
In the pre epoetin era, haemoglobins were low, generally only 6-8 g/dl, particularly with anephric
Again, the presence or absence of kidney tissue may have an important role to play and it is generally accepted that anephric
patients will have consistently low hematocrits.
Metabolism of radioiodinated carboxyl-terminal fragments of bovine parathyroid hormone in normal and anephric
A study of non-anemic, age-matched healthy volunteers and hemodialysis patients with and without kidneys (anephric
) showed that EPO response to a single dose of a HIF-PHI was greatest in hemodialysis patients with kidneys and lower, although similarly increased above baseline, in healthy volunteers and anephric
She was advised that dialysis may be necessary if she became anephric
Study Characteristics Barre (1988) Patients in stable condition, no hypertension, diuresis = 0 ml Bjorvell (1989) All patients from 2 centers Cybulsky (1985) 8 normotensive, 3 hypertensive, 4 anephric
patients Daugirdas (1985) Patients with hypotensive episodes & cramps during dialysis, no fluid-overload, stable condition Dominic (1996) Stable patients with IWG > 2.
Metabolism of radioiodinated carboxylterminal fragments of bovine parathyroid hormone in normal and anephric
After a single oral dose of FG-2216 was administered to 12 hemodialysis patients, 6 of whom were anephric
(without kidneys), and to 6 healthy volunteers, median erythropoietin (EPO) levels increased from 7.
