    1. Influence of dialysis modality and membrane flux on insomnia severity in haemodialysis patients (pages 706–711)

      Marinela Z Knezevic, Vladimir V Djordjevic, Slobodan M Jankovic and Vidojko M Djordjevic

      Article first published online: 23 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12131

      Summary at a Glance

      This study evaluates the relationship of haemodialysis and the use of convective and diffusion based treatments on the reported incidence of insomnia. Patients receiving haemodiafiltration or high flux haemodialysis had the lowest reported prevalence of insomnia.

    2. Risk factors for hospitalization among older, incident haemodialysis patients (pages 712–717)

      Kimberly L Schoonover, LaTonya J Hickson, Suzanne M Norby, Marie C Hogan, Sanjay Chaudhary, Robert C Albright Jr, John J Dillon, James T McCarthy and Amy W Williams

      Article first published online: 23 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12129

      Summary at a Glance

      This study identifies potential factors associated with the frequency and timing of hospitalizations in older patients commencing dialysis, including use of a CVC and initial dialysis when hospitalized. Hospitalizations were mainly because of cardiac and infectious aetiology.

    3. Diagnostic accuracy of arterial line blood gas measurements as an estimate of arteriovenous fistula recirculation (pages 718–723)

      Dimitrios Kirmizis, Ourania Kougioumtzidou and Pantelis Vakianis

      Article first published online: 23 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12117

      Summary at a Glance

      The authors studied the diagnostic accuracy of blood gas determination as a novel method for the estimation of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) recirculation (RC) in 25 patients on chronic haemodialysis. From the results, they proposed the regular arterial line blood gas measurement as a novel method of AVF function surveillance and RC diagnosis.

    1. Mean corpuscular volume is associated with endothelial dysfunction and predicts composite cardiovascular events in patients with chronic kidney disease (pages 728–735)

      Article first published online: 23 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12130

      Summary at a Glance

      In CKD patients, this study clearly demonstrated that the mean corpuscular volume (MCV) is independently associated with composite cardiovascular events as well as flow mediated dilatation.
