Our results show that almost a fifth of patients with chronic kidney disease has permanently elevated levels of cTnI. Checking the cTnI levels as routine and a part of standardized laboratory processing, would be possible to identify asymptomatic patients on HD under the high risk of development of cardiovascular diseases, for the purpose of monito...

The increase in the number of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures by using contrast agents increases the possibility of developing of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). It has been noticed that CIN develops almost exclusively in invasive cardiovascular tests and procedures, while it develops very rarely during the CT-angiography. The risk factor...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) transmission is related to blood transfusion and transmission in hemodialysis (HD) units. The aim of the study was to investigate the distribution of HCV genotypes and routes of HCV transmission in three groups of anti-HCV positive patients in north-west Croatia. A total of 111 patients were studied. Patients were classified...

Article
The results of hepatitis B vaccination (H-B-VAX, 1 ml = 20 micrograms HBsAg, scheme 0, 1, 6) in nine susceptible health care workers of hemodialysis unit are described. Seroconversion was achieved in 100% of recipients. The mean titer of anti-HBs was 11,691 mIU/ml at three years, 5,879 mIU/ml at four years and 2,770 mIU/ml at five years after the b...
