      Anaemia management in patients with chronic kidney disease: Taiwan practice guidelines (pages 735–739)

      Szu-Chun Hung, Ko-Lin Kuo, Der-Cherng Tarng, Chih-Cheng Hsu, Mai-Szu Wu and Tung-Po Huang

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12332

      Summary at a Glance

      This requested review summarizes the experience of anaemia management in Taiwan and highlights how ESA restriction (initially on economic grounds) and more liberal use of iron has resulted in improved anaemia parameters with results in line with updated guidelines from other groups.

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12337

      Summary at a Glance

      This is a timely narrative review of the causes of, and approaches to potential prevention of, sudden cardiac death in haemodialysis patients.

      Effect of preoperative statin therapy on postoperative acute kidney injury in patients undergoing major surgery: Systemic review and meta-analysis (pages 750–763)

      Szu-Yu Pan, Vin-Cent Wu, Tao-Min Huang, Hou-Chang Chou, Wen-Je Ko, Kwan-Dun Wu, Chien-Chang Lee and NSARF group

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12334

      Summary at a Glance

      This meta-anlaysis shows that preoperative statin therapy is associated with a reduced risk for postoperative AKI. The conclusion is weakened by the heterogeneity of studies, suggesting the need for proper studies.

    1. Acute kidney injury after snakebite accident treated in a Brazilian tertiary care centre (pages 764–770)

      Polianna L. M. M. Albuquerque, Geraldo B. Silva Junior, Camilla N. Jacinto, Julianna B. Lima, Caroline B. Lima, Yago S. Amaral, Maria do Socorro B. Veras, Rosa M. S. Mota and Elizabeth F. Daher

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12327

      Summary at a Glance

      The manuscript describes the epidemiology and clinical features of AKI among victims of snake bite in Brazil. Importantly, a significant proportion did not show full renal functional recovery.

    1. Haemodynamics during dialysis and cognitive performance (pages 771–776)

      Dawn F. Wolfgram, Lily Sunio, Elisabeth Vogt, Heather M. Smith, Alexis Visotcky, Purushottam Laud and Jeff Whittle

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12324

      Summary at a Glance

      Although blood pressure fluctuations during haemodialysis may affect cerebral perfusion, this study shows no cross-sectional association between dialytic blood pressure changes and cognitive test performance.

    2. Diagnostic value of B-type natriuretic peptide for estimating left atrial size and its usefulness for predicting all-cause mortality and cardiovascular events among chronic haemodialysis patients (pages 777–783)

      Junichi Ishigami, Soichiro Iimori, Michio Kuwahara, Sei Sasaki and Yusuke Tsukamoto

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12329

      Summary at a Glance

      This is a cohort study of the CV outcome in 457 chronic HD patients in the context of BNP and echocardiographic findings. The authors detected a correlation between BNP levels with LA diameter and LVEF among other factors. In addition, in an adjusted model, BNP has predictive value for all-cause death and CV events, and hence BNP measurement may be used as an auxiliary tool for estimating fluid balance in HD patients.

    3. Plasma levels of fibroblast growth factor-23 are associated with muscle mass in haemodialysis patients (pages 784–790)

      Hirotaka Fukasawa, Sayaka Ishigaki, Naoko Kinoshita-Katahashi, Hiroki Niwa, Hideo Yasuda, Hiromichi Kumagai and Ryuichi Furuya

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12333

      Summary at a Glance

      This study evaluates the potential link between indices of muscle mass and markers of bone and mineral metabolism (namely FGF23 and soluble klotho) in a cohort of dialysis patients.

    1. Associations of sugar-sweetened and artificially sweetened soda with chronic kidney disease: A systematic review and meta-analysis (pages 791–797)

      Wisit Cheungpasitporn, Charat Thongprayoon, Oisin A. O'Corragain, Peter J. Edmonds, Wonngarm Kittanamongkolchai and Stephen B. Erickson

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12343

      Summary at a Glance

      This review suggests that long-term consumption of sugar-sweetened, but not artificially sweetened, carbonated drinks increases the risk of chronic kidney disease.

    1. Proton-pump inhibitor use is associated with lower urinary magnesium excretion (pages 798–801)

      Jeffrey H. William, Rachel Nelson, Najwah Hayman, Kenneth J. Mukamal and John Danziger

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12330

      Summary at a Glance

      The authors demonstrated that PPI use is associated with lower 24-hour urine Mg excretion. This association might reflect decreased intestinal uptake of Mg due to PPI exposure.
