    ABSTRACT: The occurrence of intradialytic hypotension (IDH) during hemodialysis (HD) continues to be a main problem in patients with ESRD (end-stage kidney disease). It also negatively affects health-related quality of life. We aimed to determine vasopressin effect in decreasing IDH. We reviewed clinical and experimental literature in a variety of sources, including PubMed, Current Content, Scopus, Embase, and Iranmedex regarding the possible effect of vasopressin administration in prevention of hypotension during HD to clarify its mechanism, efficacy, and safety. Although arginine vasopressin is widely recognized for its anti-diuretic properties, it is also a well-recognized vasoconstrictor. It has been shown that the vasopressin release (as it would normally be expected) does not increase in the majority of HD patients with recurrent dialysis hypotension. In addition, it has also been reported that vasopressin secretion (due to the osmotic stimulation) is the most important mechanism in blood pressure control in ESRD patients receiving hypertonic solution for IDH. Therefore, it is suggested that vasopressin administration may improve hemodynamic stability among ESRD patients during HD. There are few clinical trials about this issue, suggesting that administration of exogenous vasopressin may be significantly associated with a decreased incidence of IDH as well as cardiovascular stability in ESRD patients in need of volume removal during HD. Vasopressin insufficiency may have an important role in the pathogenesis of hemodynamic instability during HD and administration of exogenous vasopressin is significantly associated with a lower incidence of IDH.

    ABSTRACT: Background The association between homocysteine (Hcy) and metabolic syndrome (MetS)-related disorders remains to be unveiled. First, the role of Hcy–MetS interaction in prediction of coronary heart disease (CHD) was assessed. Next, we investigated whether serum Hcy improves CHD risk-prediction beyond MetS and traditional risk factors (TRFs). Design A prospective study of 5893 community-dwelling participants (two sub-cohorts, 3286 diabetic and 2607 non-diabetic; ∼8.5 years of follow-up). Methods Clustering of Hcy with MetS components was assessed using exploratory factor-analysis. Cox regression hazard ratio (HR) was used to predict CHD using Hcy level and MetS status. Baseline model included MetS and TRFs. Addition of Hcy and hyper-homocysteinemia (HHcy) to the baseline model was evaluated in two separate models. Results Hcy was correlated with MetS components, especially with systolic blood pressure. The factor linking MetS to CHD is the factor through which Hcy is linked to MetS. HHcy and MetS interacted as risk factors for CHD. Conclusion Hcy adds to the value of MetS and TRFs for CHD risk-prediction by reclassifying around 47.3–49.0% of the overall and 21.6–28.1% of the intermediate-risk population.

    ABSTRACT: This study aimed to evaluate the long-term outcomes and the soft-tissue response to osseous genioplasty in patients with chin retrusion caused by early life facial burn injury. Twenty-two consecutive patients with retrusive chin as a result of severe childhood facial burn were included in this study. Cephalometric analysis and photographs were used to assess the patients for eligibility of a surgical correction. Horizontal hard-tissue advancement and soft-tissue responses were measured as the primary outcomes at the early and late postoperative follow-up visits. A total of 22 patients fulfilled the study requirements. Average preoperative distance between the pogonion, as the most anterior point of the anterior mandibular contour, and a perpendicular line connecting the nasion and the supramental point of the mandible was 0.82 ± 1.1 mm, which increased significantly to 7.8 ± 0.8 mm after genioplasty (p < 0.0001). Soft tissue was repositioned on average 6.1 ± 0.4 mm anteriorly on average, which is in comparison with the amount of chin skeleton advancement, and a response ratio of 0.8:1 was calculated at late follow-up. Burn-related retrusive chin can appropriately be treated with sliding osseous genioplasty and will require slight overcorrection compared with patients without a history of lower face burn. Therapeutic, IV.
