Raven Press, New York: Therapy indicated for one disorder but used in the other can potentially result in untoward clinical consequences. Summary of extracellular volume expansion with isotonic, hypotonic and hypertonic saline on fractional excretion of sodium [FEsodium] and urate [FEurate] at control and experimental Exp.

Influence of volume expansion, serum sodium, and fractional excretion of sodium on urate excretion. Although not well studied, CSW tends to be transient in nature with evidence of renal salt wasting usually resolving after 3—4 weeks.

A likely site for depressed renal sodium absorption in Cersbral is the proximal nephron. The cerebral salt wasting syndrome. A salt wasting syndrome associated with cerebral disease. FEurate can exceed normal values in patients with reduced GFR, so the algorithm is valid in patients with serum creatinine less than 1.

The ability of these compounds sallt increase glomerular filtration rate accounts for some of the natriuresis, however, even in the sidah of a change in GFR urinary sodium excretion increases due to a direct inhibitory effect on sodium transport in the inner medullary collecting duct [ 17 ]. Decreased sympathetic input to the kidney would be a likely explanation for impaired proximal reabsorption, since the sympathetic nervous system has been shown to alter salt and water handling in this segment through a variety of both indirect and direct mechanisms.


Early hyponatraemia after pituitary surgery: In this setting, the release of AVP is an appropriate response to the volume depletion. Hyponatremia-what is cerebral salt wasting? Abnormal urate transport in patients with intracranial disease.

A similar case of RSW was a hyponatremic patient with a pneumonia without cerebral disease, who diluted his urine 20 h after initiating saline therapy [ 11 ]. One was a hyponatremic patient with a simple hip fracture with no clinical evidence of cerebral disease who exhibited all of the essential features of RSW. A CT scan of the head without contrast showed evidence of a subarachnoid haemorrhage with extra axial haemorrhage adjacent to both frontal lobes. Part of this new found appreciation for the diagnosis of CSW can be traced to reports in which measurement of blood and plasma volume were found to be decreased in patients who met the traditional laboratory criteria for SIADH.

Increased uric acid clearance in the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone. Related articles Cerebral salt wasting fludrocortisone natriuretic peptide tuberculous meningoencephalitis. Tests of both thyroid and adrenal function were normal.

Evidence from a meta-analysis.

Mild hyponatremia and risk of fracture in the ambulatory elderly. The recommendation to treat virtually all hyponatremics exposes the need to resolve the diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma of deciding whether to water restrict a patient with the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion SIADH or administer saalt and water to a renal salt waster.

SIADH versus Cerebral Salt Wasting

Clinical determination of EABV is usually cerebarl. Increased uric acid clearance in the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone. Unfortunately, the present volume approach to hyponatremia, which has been in existence for decades, has been inadequate and misleading, in part because of misconceptions that are unsubstantiated by supportive data.


Cerebral salt wasting in children. By contrast, uric acid levels in patients with walt occurring in the setting of decreased ECF volume are either normal or slightly increased. Hyponatremia in intracranial disease: He compared 10 patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage who underwent clipping of an aneurysm to a control group consisting of 10 patients who underwent craniotomy for resection of cerebral tumours.

There aiadh universal agreement that we cannot assess ECV with any degree of accuracy by usual clinical criteria, yet the approach to hyponatremia starts with an assessment of volume. Is asymptomatic hyponatremia really asymptomatic? This diagnostic dilemma needs to be urgently resolved because of the evolving awareness that even mildly hyponatremic patients are symptomatic and should therefore be treated [ 57 ].

Cerebral salt wasting versus SIADH: what difference?

Normal fractional urate cereebral identifies hyponatremic patients with reset osmostat. Consequences and approaches to treatment. Nevertheless modest expansion of the intravascular volume results in increased glomerular filtration rate and increased renal plasma flow.

The increased urinary sodium concentration and decreased serum uric acid suggest a volume-expanded state such as SIADH. Sodium and fluid loss in the urine was matched by intravenous replacement in order to prevent the development of hyponatraemia.

While correction of the serum sodium concentration in SIADH leads to a normalization of uric siadu handling by the kidney [ 25 ], hypouricaemia and increased renal uric acid excretion remains a persistent finding following the correction of the serum sodium concentration in CSW [ 21 ].

Correlation with brain water and electrolytes.
