Am J Kidney Dis 34:702-5. 1999
..We conclude there may be changes in the veins of hemodialysis patients with time that cause thickening of layers, even in veins not directly used for access. This may affect the creation or survival of subsequent vascular accesses...

Ren Fail 27:381-3. 2005
..2 +/- 2.0 versus 1.7 +/- 0.9 mg/dL (p < 0.05). We conclude that acute renal failure is not uncommon in APAP poisoning and appears to be unrelated to the degree of liver injury. NAC therapy did not seem to worsen nephrotoxicity...
- Metformin-induced lactic acidosis and acute pancreatitis precipitated by diuretic, celecoxib, and candesartan-associated acute kidney dysfunction

Clin Toxicol (Phila) 46:164-6. 2008
..The kidney injury caused the accumulation of metformin, leading to lactic acidosis and acute pancreatitis. Sodium bicarbonate hemodialysis not only improved the metabolic abnormalities but also hastened the removal of metformin...
