NEJM — The Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis

Alternatively, conivaptan might be used to increase the serum sodium level, although clinical experience with vasopressin-receptor antagonists remains very limited. Arch Intern Med ; Successful long-term treatment of hyponatremia in syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion with SR B, an orally active, nonpeptide, vasopressin V-2 receptor antagonist.

Address reprint requests to Dr. Although this is the case in about one third of patients with SIADH 7 Figure 1in other patients with this condition, secretion nemm arginine vasopressin is fully suppressed, resulting in dilute urine, but at a serum sodium level lower than normal a “reset osmostat”. Hypouricemia in the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone.

Causes and management of hyponatremia. N Engl J Med ; Use of these agents in practice would require similarly close monitoring of serum sodium nej. Treatment of symptomatic hyponatremia and its relation to brain damage: Uyponatremia authorities recommend brain imaging e.

Most cases caused by malignant disease resolve with effective antineoplastic njem, and most of those due to medication resolve promptly when the offending agent is discontinued.

New insights into the pathophysiology of the dysnatremias: The syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone SIADH is the most frequent cause of hyponatremia, although hyponatremia associated with volume depletion of the extracellular fluid also occurs commonly.


Evidence supporting various strategies is then presented, followed by a review of formal guidelines, when they exist. The Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis. Current prescriptions for the correction of hyponatraemia and hypernatraemia: Less commonly, plasma levels of arginine vasopressin are low or undetectable in patients with SIADH, even in the presence of hyponatremia. To date, this complication has not been reported, but trials of these agents have involved very close monitoring and minimal or no water restriction.

When diagnostic uncertainty remains, volume contraction of the extracellular fluid can be ruled out by infusing 2 liters of 0. Am J Med ; J Am Soc Nephrol ;8: A prospective study on hyponatraemia in medical cancer patients: Her thyroid function and adrenal function were normal.

Initial reports suggested that secretion of arginine vasopressin in SIADH was independent of plasma osmolality. Add to Personal Archive. Tolvaptan, a selective oral vasopressin V2-receptor antagonist, for hyponatremia.


The shaded area represents normal values of plasma AVP. Measurement of the serum level of arginine vasopressin is not recommended routinely, because urinary osmolality above mOsm per kilogram of water is usually sufficient to indicate excess of circulating arginine vasopressin.

Treating the underlying cause in this case, small-cell lung cancer is the definitive means of correcting the hyponatremia. The incidence and pathophysiology of hyponatraemia after subarachnoid haemorrhage.

Am J Physiol Renal Physiol ; Treatment of symptomatic hyponatremia. The rate of change in serum sodium levels must be monitored every 2 to 3 hours, and the infusion adjusted as needed. Most cases of hyponatremia that occur out of the hospital are chronic and minimally symptomatic, hyponatrmeia in marathon runners, users of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine MDMA, also known as “ecstasy”and people who drink water to excess; in these groups, severe symptoms usually indicate acute hyponatremia and require rapid correction.


Currently, conivaptan use is limited to the treatment of hospitalized patients; it might be considered particularly for those who have moderate-to-severe hyponatremia and symptoms but not seizures, delirium, or coma, which would warrant the use of hypertonic saline.

A computed tomographic CT scan of the thorax showed a mass in the lower lobe of the left lung, which proved to be a small-cell carcinoma. Oral intake of urea 30 g per day is effective but is poorly tolerated.

Vasopressin-Receptor Antagonist Therapy A more njem option for treating SIAD is conivaptan Vaprisol, Astellas Pharmaa vasopressin-receptor antagonist approved by the Food and Drug Administration in for intravenous treatment of euvolemic hyponatremia 34 and approved in for intravenous treatment of hypervolemic hyponatremia 35 Table 3.

The treatment of hyponatremia: Evaluation and management of hypo-osmolality in hospitalized patients.

A syndrome of renal sodium loss and hyponatremia probably resulting from inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone. Myelinolysis after correction of hyponatremia. Treating the syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion with isotonic saline.

She otherwise felt well and was taking no medications. Because dysgeusia is a rare manifestation of hyponatremia, her serum sodium level was tested and was mmol per liter. One theoretical concern is that vasopressin-receptor antagonists might increase serum sodium levels too rapidly, putting patients at risk for osmotic demyelination. The article ends with the authors’ clinical recommendations. Influence of hypoxia and sex on hyponatremic encephalopathy.

Crit Care Med ; Hypouricemia, inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone, and small cell carcinoma of the lung. Acute hospital-induced hyponatremia in children: Perioperative fluid therapy in children: Treatment of severe hyponatremia:
