The second patient was a 72-year-old male with end stage chronic renal disease due to nephroangiosclerosis. His hemodialysis vintage was 5 years with three dialysis sessions per week, each lasting 4 hours.
The original kidney diseases in CKD and ESRD patients were: chronic glomerulonephritis (n=6), nephroangiosclerosis (n=3), diabetic nephropathy (n=9), polycystic kidney disease (n=3), other (n=14) and unknown diagnosis (n=5).
Vascular disease was defined as either nephroangiosclerosis (defined as either biopsy-proven or presumed based on either the presence of long-standing hypertension of nonrenal origin for >10 years, development of hypertensive target organ damage, or normal baseline glomerular filtration rate with progressive worsening of renal function) or ESRD due to renal artery stenosis.

Based on these data and on the history of the ischemic injury of the fingertips of the right hand, possibly secondary to thrombosis of the small vessels, we hypothesize that the glomerulosclerosis may be secondary to two pathogenetic mechanisms: at first time glomerular microthrombotic events leading to glomerular sclerosis and finally scarring due to hypertensive nephroangiosclerosis. We suggest that both events (fingers gangrene and glomerulosclerosis) were determined by the genetic mutations of thrombophilic genes.
Etiology of CKD included autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (25%), the presence of a unique functional kidney (25%), reflux nephropathy (20%), IgA nephropathy (10%), nephroangiosclerosis (10%), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (5%), and obstructive nephropathy secondary to chronic lithiasis (5%).
