TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 With aging: Renal mass decreases Renal blood flow (RBF) decreases Number of functioning nephrons decreases GFR decreases, glomerular dysfunctions Tubular dysfunctions Excretory capacity decreases Role in salt/water regulation decreases Role in pH regulation decreases Non-excretory renal functions decrease AGING vs. RENAL FUNCTIONS

TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 In th elderly GFR , tendency for azotemia due to a fall of kidney perfusion (thirst, heat, CO redistribution e.g. heart failure), but no proportional rise in se-creatinine (less muscle lost) Tubular reabsorption changes: glucose reabsorbing tubular cells still function, minerals: tendency for K-loss, salt wasting ( Na-reabsorption), phosphaturia, poor ADH action (water loss). Proteinuria more frequent. Excretory capacity (drugs!) decreases. Severe shifts in the osmotic pressure. Age vs. nephron dysfunctions

Aging vs. non-excretory kidney functions
TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 Most common renal diseases and genitourinary conditions in the elderly Diabetic nephropathy Glomerulonephritis Pyelonephritis Interstitial nephropathy - analgesic nephropathy - uric acid nephropathy - myeloma kidney Urinary retention (The muscles of the bladder and pelvic floor weaken.) Urinary incontinenceUrinary incontinence (The capacity of the urinary bladder reduces which leads to frequent urination.) Urinary infectionsUrinary infections Benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer Atrophic vaginitis
TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 Renal failure in the elderly: causes acute renal failure The incidence of acute renal failure increases following acute tubular necrosis. Risk factors: age-related decrease of RBF, GFR, and of ability to concentrate or to dilute urine, diabetes mellitus, hepatic cirrhosis, congestive heart failure, drugs chronic renal failure Chronic ischemic renal disease and progressive damage of the renal parenchyma lead to chronic renal failure. Risk factors: diabetes mellitus hypertension hyperlipidemia obesity
TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 Renal failure in the elderly: dialysis and kidney transplantation diabetic nephropathy renovascular diseases The most common indication of dialysis due to chronic renal failure is diabetic nephropathy (35-40%). There is an increase in the number of renovascular diseases. Among the dialyzed there are less candidates for transplantation due to co-morbidity. The overall survival increases due to the improved efficacy of dialysis. With higher capacity of dialysis, the age-related limits of dialysis have faded away. Age is not a contraindication of kidney transplantation. Both the cadaveric and the living donor can be an option in the elderly. limiting factor for kidney transplantation multimorbidity The only limiting factor for kidney transplantation is the presence of multimorbidity (hypertension, DM, significant atherosclerosis).
TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 Urinary tract infection Symptoms: Symptoms: fever, dysuria (pain upon urination), urgency, frequency, incontinence, impaired physical and/or mental status. Sepsis can develop quickly and atypically — treatment of urosepsis is extremely difficult. Pathogens: Pathogens: E. Coli, Enterococci, Streptococci, Proteus. Treatment: Treatment: oral rehydration, frequent urination, selected antibiotics, roboration.
TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 IncontinenceDefinition: Involuntary loss of urine through the urethra.Types: functional, stress, urge, reflex, overflow.
TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 Functional incontinence The patient is not able to control his bladder due to altered circumstances.Causes: disability, impaired vision, dementia, bigger amount of urine (i.e. diuretics, diabetes mellitus)Management: changes in the environment, timed voiding (scheduled bathroom visits), urinary indwelling catheter as required, diapers.
TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 Stress incontinence Involuntary loss of urine upon elevated intra-abdominal pressure.Causes: urethral sphincter insufficiency due to weakness of pelvic floor musculature, obesity, prolapsed uterus, atrophic vaginitis, bladder hernia.Management: weight loss, Kegel exercises, electro-stimulation, estrogen, medication (Ditropan, Melipramin), surgery, panty liners.
TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 Urge/reflex incontinence Sudden, unexpected urge to void after certain stimuli.Causes: cystitisatrophic vaginitis, cystitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), certain drugs or foods, cold.Management: casual treatment, avoiding coffee/tea/alcohol, estrogen, medication (Ditropan), electro-stimulation, behavioral training (biofeedback).
TÁMOP-4.1.2-08/1/A-2009-0011 Overflow incontinence Unexpected urine loss from the overfilled bladder.Causes: benign prostatic hyperplasiabenign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), fibrotic stenosis of the urethra, muscles of the bladder and pelvic floor weak.Management: casual treatment, avoiding coffee/tea/alcohol, estrogen, medication (Ditropan), behavioral training (biofeedback).
