methylprednisolone 20110 outcomes in CCE patients [[51]]. Fabbian et al. reported a case of CCE treated successfully with high-dose methylprednisolone (250 mg intravenously) followed by oral administration of prednisone 50 mg a day gradually tapered off
prednisolone 19897 atheroembolization, but the effects of steroids remain controversial. Some studies demonstrated that oral prednisolone administered at a dose of 1 mg/kg/day led to overall clinical improvement and improved renal outcomes
prednisolone 20116 CCE patients [[51]]. Fabbian et al. reported a case of CCE treated successfully with high-dose methyl prednisolone (250 mg intravenously) followed by oral administration of prednisone 50 mg a day gradually tapered off
prednisone 20187 successfully with high-dose methylprednisolone (250 mg intravenously) followed by oral administration of prednisone 50 mg a day gradually tapered off over 6 months. [[52]]. A small case series of renal CCE patients [[53]]

acute kidney injury 21458 LDL-A may have beneficial effect on renal outcome of CCE.7.3. Dialysis and Other TherapiesPatients with acute kidney injury may require dialysis therapy. Both peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis have been shown to be adequate

atheroembolic renal disease 1488 findings. Therapeutic options are limited, and prognosis is considered to be poor. Expanding knowledge of atheroembolic renal disease due to CCE opens perspectives for recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of this cause of progressive
atheroembolic renal disease 2588 presentation of CCE is diverse, with limited therapeutic options and poor long-term outcomes for resulting atheroembolic renal disease [[4]]. This life-threatening disease may be underestimated and overlooked as a cause of chronic kidney
atheroembolic renal disease 13618 Presentations6.1. Renal Complication of Cholesterol Crystal Embolism (CCE)Renal complications of CCE, also known as atheroembolic renal disease (AERD), take two forms: acute/subacute and chronic (Table 1). The acute/subacute form presents as a
chronic kidney disease 1002 in renal function. This life-threatening disease may be underdiagnosed and overlooked as a cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD) among patients with advanced atherosclerosis. CCE can result from vascular surgery, angiography,

chronic kidney disease 10405 [[25]]. In addition, RAAS also can promote vascular and tissue remodeling, further contributing to chronic kidney disease . Clinically, RAAS inhibitors may have a potential benefit for improvement of renal outcomes in CCE.4.3.
chronic kidney disease 14588 the acute form of AERD. However, CCE is often overlooked because it mimics symptoms of several other chronic kidney disease s, such as chronic glomerular sclerosis, systemic vasculitis, ischemic nephropathy, hypertensive nephrosclerosis.
chronic kidney disease 15493 [[37]]. Blood tests for elevation of serum creatinine can confirm the diagnosis of acute renal injury or chronic kidney disease but do not identify cause. Microscopic hematuria and minimal proteinuria is typically found on urinalysis.
