Effect of L-carnitine on the serum lipoproteins and HDL-C subclasses in hemodialysis patients.
Following carnitine administration a decrease in plasma levels of triglyceride (TG) and increase in total high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) has been reported. Our hypothesis was that it also improves the HDL2/HDL3 ...
Findings of Doppler sonography do not correlate with serum lipoprotein and total homocysteine concentrations in renal transplant recipients
Atherosclerosis may be evaluated by structural or functional changes of the main arteries. We sought to investigate the probable associations of static and dynamic arterial changes with lipoprotein (a) and homocysteine ...
Acute phase reactants in hemodialysis and renal transplantation
[No abstract available]
Anatomical differences in the right and left renal arterial patterns
The aim of this study was to determine the pattern and character of the renal arteries in patients referred for preoperative or diagnostic evaluation of the renal or abdominal arteries by multi-detector computed tomography ...
Apolipoprotein A polymorphysm predicts lipoprotein A concentration in renal transplant recipients
Increased serum lipoprotein(a) is an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis in renal transplant recipients. Higher levels may be due to genetic factors, for example, apolipoprotein A isoforms and/or environmental ...
Arterial atherosclerosis in patients with chronic kidney disease and its relationship with serum and tissue endothelin-1. [corrected].
Instruction. We investigated the correlation between atherosclerosis and tissue and serum levels of endothelin-1 in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). MATERIALS AND METHODS. Arterial samples were obtained from 35 ...
Doppler ultrasonographic indexes in kidney transplant recipients: its relationship with kidney function.
Doppler ultrasonography (DU) is mostly used for assessment of both graft and native kidneys' vascular status. In this study, correlation between the DU indexes and kidney allograft function was evaluated.Hospital records ...
Vascular complication and Doppler ultrasonographic finding after renal transplantation.
Vascular complications are common after renal transplantation. In this study we correlated Doppler sonographic indices and transplant kidney function.We reviewed data on 244 renal transplant patients. Doppler ultrasonographic ...
