The RiVUR Study Outcomes and Implications on the Management of Vesicoureteral Reflux
The Randomized intervention for Vesicoureteral Reflux (RiVUR) study was an effort by the National Institute of Health to identify the most significant question on the management of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), i.e. Did antibiotic prophylaxis reduce the incidence of recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) in children with VUR? During the initial phases of the RiVUR study, several similar studies were performed that seemed to indicate lack of benefit of antibiotic prophylaxis in VUR.Arch Nephrol Ren Stud, 2022, Volume 2, Issue 1, p1-5 | DOI: 10.33696/nephrology.2.006
Peritoneal Imaging may be the Last Piece of the Puzzle for Precision Evaluation of Peritoneal Function
Due to changes in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) policies in many countries and the impact of COVID-19, the importance and demand for peritoneal dialysis (PD) as a home dialysis treatment modality is growing prominently . However, peritoneal membrane dysfunction remains a bottleneck restricting the application of PD. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop new methods to accurately assess peritoneal function.Arch Nephrol Ren Stud, 2022, Volume 2, Issue 1, p6-8 | DOI: 10.33696/nephrology.2.007
Review of Renal Transplantation of Hepatitis C Viremic Donor Organs into Aviremic Recipients
The development of direct-acting antiviral agents for the treatment of Hepatitis C (HCV) has changed the practice of treating patients with HCV. In particular, organ transplant recipients who have not previously been exposed to HCV are now able to consider receiving an organ from a donor who is infected with HCV, and anticipate effective antiviral therapy after transplantation.Arch Nephrol Ren Stud, 2022, Volume 2, Issue 1, p9-16 | DOI: 10.33696/nephrology.2.008
