Description: Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is the development of a bacterial infection in the peritoneum, despite the absence of an obvious source for the infection. It is specifically an infection of the ascitic fluid – an increased volume of peritoneal fluid. Ascites is most commonly a complication of cirrhosis of the liver. It can also occur in patients with nephrotic syndrome.
Description: Background: The public health significance of the reported higher incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) with intensive systolic blood pressure (SBP) lowering is unclear. Objective: To examine the effects of intensive SBP lowering on kidney and cardiovascular outcomes and contrast its apparent beneficial and adverse effects. Design: Subgroup analyses of SPRINT (Systolic Blood Pressure ...
Description: Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is a life-threatening complication in patients with cirrhosis and ascites and is very common in hospitalized patients. 2. SBP can lead to the development of acute kidney injury (AKI) and hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) through an increase in splanchnic arterial vasodilation and systemic inflammation. 3.
Description: For nondiabetic chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with hypertension, combining statin therapy with intensive management of systolic blood pressure (SBP) may improve survival.
Description: Using data from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Patients from 2010 to 2018, older kidney donors were evaluated for post-donation SBP in the first 2 years following nephrectomy.
Description: Systolic blood pressure (SBP) plotted against the normalized unit of the low frequency SBP power LF nu during administration of graded i.v. boluses of the ganglionic blocker hexamethonium in Lewis, Lewis polycystic kidney (LPK) and spontaneously hypertensive...
Description: A rapid annual decline of kidney function was defined as ≥3 mL/min/1.73 m2/year. Results Rapid annual decline of kidney function occurred in 1130 patients (13.1%). High baseline systolic BP (SBP) and PP predicted kidney function decline in participants aged 60–79 years.
Description: SBP is most often caused by infection in fluid that collects in the peritoneal cavity . The fluid buildup often occurs with advanced liver or kidney disease. Risk factors for liver disease include: Very heavy alcohol use ; Chronic hepatitis B or hepatitis C; Other diseases that lead to cirrhosis
Description: SBP variability was determined based on standard deviations of SBP over the previous 5 years before baseline. Cox regressions adjusted with patients' baseline characteristics, mean, and temporal trend of SBP was applied to the associations between variability and incident cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease and all-cause mortality.
