[17] After comparing survival between 5 299 patients who received haemodialysis and 716 who received peritoneal dialysis (PD), the United States Renal Data System has also reported that dialysis modality is not a factor in survival of patients with HIVAN (hazard ratio: peritoneal dialysis v.
However, the most common cause of end-stage renal disease in HIV-infected individuals undergoing hemodialysis is HIV-associated nephropathy (HIVAN), which is a collapsing form of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis [3,4].
Evidence from numerous small studies and case reports has shown that pharmacological interventions for HIVAN (less so for other glomerular lesions) delay the progression or, in some cases, induce reversal of renal disease.
In conclusion, we have shown that transplanting HIV-infected patients with ESRF with kidneys from HIV-positive donors represents a significant advance, benefiting patients with ESRF due to HIVAN, within our resource-constrained context.
In 2001, HIVAN was identified as the third leading cause of kidney failure in the African American population and 10% of the newly diagnosed cases.
Based on our current findings, we strongly recommended HIV testing in all children, with early commencement of treatment in those who test HIV-positive, to reduce the prevalence of HIVAN, which is a significant cause of severe HPT.
It is true that, on the one hand, an untreated HIV-infection may be related to acute and chronic kidney disease due to direct viral kidney injury (HIVAN and other manifestations), chronic inflammation, opportunistic infections, and their potentially nephrotoxic treatments.
Implementation of ART has decreased the incidence of HIV Associated Nephropathy (HIVAN), but other causes of renal diseases persist and are increasing in prevalence.
We were not able to measure urine albumin-creatinine ratio to explain the significance of the proteinuria and how it relates to HIV-associated nephropathy (HIVAN).
