      Elizabeth Barr, Federica Barzi, Jaquelyne T Hughes, George Jerums, Kerin O'Dea, Alex Brown, Elif I Ekinci, Graham RD Jones, Paul D Lawton, Ashim Sinha, Richard J MacIsaac, Alan Cass and Louise J Maple-Brown

      Accepted manuscript online: 14 MAY 2017 10:35PM EST | DOI: 10.1111/nep.13073

      In this short follow-up longitudinal observational study of Indigenous Australians, marked estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) decline was observed with greater baseline albuminuria. Cardio-metabolic risk factors were not strong predictors for eGFR decline in Indigenous Australians without albuminuria. Longer follow-up may elucidate the role of these predictors and other mechanisms in chronic kidney disease progression in this population.

      In this population-based study from Taiwan, the authors examined the incidence and outcome of non-traumatic lower limb amputation in peritoneal dialysis (PD) and haemodialysis (HD) patients. Diabetic PD patients had a higher risk of amputation than diabetic HD patients, but this association was reversed in non-diabetic patients. Mortality rates after amputation were similar.

      Summary at a Glance

      This study examined the variability of pre-dialysis troponin values to predict cardiovascular events in 128 HD patients. Most stable HD patients do not have elevated troponins at baseline. Howevery elevated or fluctuating levels are associated with a worse outcome. Serial troponin measurement has greater sensitivity and higher negative predictive power compared to a single troponin measurement.
