Journal of Renal Medicine

About Journal of Renal Medicine

Journal of Renal Medicine is an international open access peer reviewed publication that focuses on the functions and disorders of the kidneys in general and renal functions in particular. The journal basically focuses on the recent developments on the prevention and cure of disorders that may affect the renal functions.

The journal covers several key aspects this field by including research on of:

Nephrology • Acute kidney injury • Chronic kidney disease • Genetic predisposition • Renal artery stenosis
• Hemolytic-uremic syndrome • Renal Hypertension • Clinical Nephrology • Haemodialysis • Renal Transplantation
• Renal Management • Renal insufficiency • Kidney cysts • End stage renal disease • Lupus nephritis
• Glomerulonephritis • Nephrosclerosis, and Diabetic Nephropathy.

The journal encourages advancements in the areas mentioned above in the form of research articles, reviews, commentaries, case studies and letters to the editors. The editorial manager system facilitates a user friendly article submission, review and publication. Manuscripts that are thoroughly peer reviewed would ensure the best standards in the industry.

Chronic kidney disease

It is the gradual loss of the kidney function. The kidneys help to remove all the excess waste from the body during kidney failure the waste fluids in the body increase and thus lead to serious problems

Renal cell carcinoma

Renal cell carcinoma Renal cell carcinomas (RCC) are also known as renal adenocarcinoma; it is a kidney cancer occurring in convoluted tubules. Renal cell carcinomas are about 90-95% of the occurring carcinomas to the kidney. If Parents are suffering with renal cell carcinoma then they children’s are more prone to RCC. RCC are more prone at the age of 50-70 years of age. Dialysis, smoking increases the risk of carcinomas. Renal cell Carcinoma covers complete information about kidney cancer.

The major cause of RCC is smoking and misuse of certain pain medicines can affect the risk of renal cell cancer, symptoms in renal carcinoma includes blood in the urine, lump in the abdomen and loss of apetite. Diagnosis of renal cancer includes ultra sound exam, blood chemistry studies, urinanysis, liver function test, CT scan, etc

Pediatric Nephrology

Nephrology is the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases

Glomerulonephritis

The inflammation of the tiny filters of the kidney. Glomeruli removes excess fluid, electrolytes and waste from the blood and passes them into the urine

Renal Replacement Therapy

In situations of acute and chronic kidney injuries and renal failures the blood filtering function of the kidney is replaced by Renal Replacement therapy. Kidney transplantation is one kind of renal replacement therapy in which a donor kidney replaces the old kidney. A compatible graft is required to carry out kidney transplantations.

Renal Failure

Renal failure also known as renal insufficiency, is a condition where kidneys lose the ability to remove waste and balance fluids from blood. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the most common cause of renal failure. Two distinct types of renal failures acute kidney failure and chronic kidney failure. The treatments for kidney failure are Hemodialysis, Peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplant.

Acute Kidney Disease

Acute kidney disease is also termed as acute kidney failure is a progressive loss in the renal functions sudden decrease in the glomerular filtration rate over hours to days. It is characterized by fluid retention, fatigue, decreased appetite, prolonged bleeding and high blood pressure. It can be reversible.

Dialysis

Dialysis is the treatment for the kidney failure patients, where the kidney fails in functioning. There are mainly two types of dialysis, Hemodialysis where the blood is filtered outside the body and returned into your body and Peritoneal dialysis where the blood is filtered inside your body through special fluid which absorbs the wastes from the blood.

Diabetic Nephropathy

Diabetic nephropathy is the disease caused by the diabetes. It does not occur in all the patients with diabetes only in serve cases it leads to kidney disease. High blood sugar levels may cause damage to the blood vessels present in the kidney which leads to the infiltration of blood and causes kidney failure.

Nephritis

Nephritis is the inflammation occurred in the kidneys, it is characterized by swelling in between the kidney tubules. Symptoms are fever, blood in the urine, fatigue, nausea, vomiting and elevated blood pressure. It is caused by infections, and toxins, but is most commonly caused by autoimmune disorder.

Renal Hypertension

Renal hypertension is a renovascular disease in which high blood pressure is occurred by kidneys through narrowing or blockage of the renal arteries or veins from which blood supply takes in the kidney. It may cause Renal artery occlusion, Renal vein thrombosis or Renal atheroembolism. Symptoms are elevated blood pressure, kidney dysfunction and pulmonary edema. It can be treated by percutaneous surgical revascularization, and also nephrectomy or autotransplantation, and the individual may be given beta-adrenergic blockers.

Kidney Transplantation

Kidney transplantation is the organ transplantation of a kidney in which patients who are suffering with chronic kidney disease stage 5 (End Stage Renal Disease). Kidneys transplantation can be done from two different sources: a living donor or a deceased donor. living donor must be in excellent health, well informed about transplantation, and able to give informed consent. Any healthy person can donate a kidney safely and deceased donor kidney comes from a person who has suffered brain death or the people who donates their organs after the death are removed and stored until a recipient has been selected.

Kidney Cysts

Kidney cysts are the abnormal fluid filled sacs formed in the kidneys. Kidney cysts usually do not cause symptoms or harm the kidneys. These are diagnosed by ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT) scan or MRI scan. Sclerotherapy is used for the treatment of kidney cysts.

Polycystic Kidney Disease

Polycystic kidney disease is also known as polycystic kidney syndrome and is genetic disorder in which abnormal fluid sacs develop and grow in the kidneys. It is observed with multiple cysts in the kidney hence called polycystic. Symptoms include high blood pressure, headaches, abdominal pain, blood in the urine, and excessive urination. There are two types of PKD are autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. Diagnosed by CT scan, MRI or Ultrasound.

Renal biopsy

Renal biopsy is the surgical procedure where a small piece of kidney is removed for microscopic examination. The study of the biopsy needed to diagnose or treat problems of the kidney. Some kidney problems can often be found with blood and urine tests, a sonogram or other special x-rays, and a physical exam rather than a biopsy. But in some individuals with certain types of kidney disease, and those with a kidney transplant that is not working well, a correct diagnosis can only be made with a kidney biopsy.

Interventional Nephrology

Interventional Nephrology is a new and emerging subspecialty of Nephrology that mainly deals with ultrasonography of kidneys and ultrasound-guided renal biopsy, insertion of peritoneal dialysis catheters, tunneled dialysis for patients undergoing hemodialysis as well as percutaneous endovascular procedures performed to manage dysfunction of arteriovenous fistulas or grafts in end stage renal disease patients.
