CHRONIC kidney disease (CKD) affects approximately 700 million individuals worldwide. Many patients with CKD require haemodialysis, and more than two-thirds of these patients have CKD-associated pruritus (CKD-aP). CKD-aP can be bothersome for many patients and drastically affect quality of life, from causing sleep issues to mental health problems. Almost 40% of dialysis patients are at least ‘moderately’ bothered and 19% of patients are at least very much bothered by pruritus.

Nephrotoxic Mechanisms of Gadolinium: Implications for the Use of Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents
Gadolinium-based contrast agents are widely used for MRI. Although they may be considered well-tolerated at recommended dosing levels, recent evidence supports the deposition of free gadolinium in the tissues and its slow release into circulation, resulting in long-term toxicity, which is aggravated in renal patients.
‘Sweet Hypoxia’ with Acute Kidney Injury: The Unpredictability of Acute Hypoxic Respiratory Failure in COVID-19 Infection – a Community Hospital Experience
The authors revisited the phenomenon of asymptomatic patients despite very low pulse oximetry readings, the so-called ‘sweet hypoxia’, ‘happy hypoxia’, or ‘silent hypoxaemia’.
Spontaneous Renal Artery Dissection: Is It Really So Rare?
Spontaneous renal artery dissection (SRAD) is a rare and often unrecognised clinical entity, which accounts for 1–2% of all arterial dissections. It can be the result of several underlying diseases, such as atherosclerosis, malignant hypertension, fibromuscular dysplasia, and connective tissue disorders.
