Medical adjuvant treatment to increase the patency of arteriovenous fistulae and grafts used for renal dialysis | Cochrane

People with advanced kidney disease (end-stage renal disease) need dialysis to perform kidney functions. In haemodialysis, blood is filtered through a machine. To allow a large enough passage for blood to flow between the person and the machine, an artery and a vein can be surgically joined (to form an arteriovenous fistula) or an artificial graft (a substitute for a vein) is used to join the artery to the vein. These access points might last for years but can become blocked or infected. This review investigates if additional medical therapy can keep these dialysis access points functioning.

Immunosuppressants to prevent corneal graft rejection after penetrating keratoplasty | Cochrane

Background The cornea is the transparent front part of the eye that if damaged, can be replaced by a corneal transplant (keratoplasty) using healthy cornea tissue from a donor. A penetrating keratoplastyinvolves replacing all the damaged cornea. It is necessary to prevent the transplanted material (graft) from being rejected. The current strategies for preventing graft rejection are topical and oral steroids. The use of cyclosporine A (CsA), tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), sirolimus, and leflunomide is increasing. However, the benefits and adverse reactions of these immunosuppressants have not yet been systematically reviewed.
