As a result of technical advancements over the last decade, sustained low-efficiency dialysis (SLED) has become an effective and safe treatment for critically ill patients in intensive care units (ICUs). Using unfractionated heparin, the circuit clotting rate could be significantly reduced to 17–26%. Thus, anticoagulation is essential for preventing the extracorporeal circuit clotting in SLED.

The object of the present study is to review, and meta-analysis was to estimate the incidence of NMSC among renal transplant recipients. Nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) in renal transplant recipients is common and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. They will also ascertain the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma(SCC) and Basal cell carcinoma(BCC), among this population which provides useful information for clinicians.
A novel nuclear medicine test was developed by German scientists which could determine whether a kidney transplant patient had developed infection in the transplanted tissue. The study, which utilizes positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI), is presented in the December issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
