Purpose and Objectives

  • Purpose:

    • To educate RNs and LPNs on the underlying disease process of multiple myeloma and how it leads to renal failure

  • Objectives:

    • Review pathophysiology of renal failure in multiple myeloma

    • Identify key assessment components of multiple myeloma patient in renal failure

Function of the kidney l.jpg

Function of the Kidney:

  • Remove waste products

  • Regulate body fluids and electrolytes

  • Produces hormones

  • Regulate blood pressure

  • Excrete drugs and toxins

Function of the kidney5 l.jpg

Function of the Kidney

Remove waste products

  • Urea : product of protein metabolism; an excess is a sign of uremia

  • Creatinine: end product of creatine metabolism; an excess is a sign of advanced kidney disease

  • Uric acid: an end product of purine metabolism, must be excreted because the body cannot destroy it; an excess can cause gout

  • Beta 2 microglobulin: an end product of Class I HLAs; complement proteins activation can lead to increase of microglobulins;

Function of the kidney6 l.jpg

Function of the Kidney:

  • Regulate body fluids and electrolytes

    • Key systems help to maintain function

      • Cardiovascular: provides plasma to help regulate water and electrolytes

      • Nervous: helps fluid balance by regulating thirst

      • Endocrine: produces hormones to alter water absorption


Function of the kidney7 l.jpg

Function of the Kidney:

  • Produces hormones

  • Prostaglandins; “a group of mediators of cell function” (Porth & Matfin, 2009 p. 749), produce vasodilatation, “protects the kidney against the vasoconstricting effects of sympathetic stimulation and angiotensin II “(Porth & Matfin, 2009 p. 749)

  • Erythropoietin: a hormone that stimulates production of RBCs; secreted in response to renal hypoxia and possibly epinephrine, norepinephrine and prostaglandins

  • 1,25 – dihydroxycholecaciferol (activated Vitamin D): a steroid hormone that has final activation in the kidney and is necessary for regulation of calcium

  • Porth, C., & Marfin, G. (Eds.). (2009). Pathophysiology: Concepts of altered health states (eighth ed.). Philadelphia: Wolters Kluwer Health/​ Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.


    Function of the kidney8 l.jpg

    Function of the Kidney:

    • Generalized Stress response activation in the kidney

    • Control of vascular volume: regulation of renal blood flow is reliant on regulation of glomerular blood flow

    • Renin-angiotensin II system: release of renin from kidney in response to SNS stimulation and release of epinephrine and norepinephrine then leads to the production of angiotensin II

    • Aldosterone secretion: stimulated by high potassium levels in plasma, also by angiotensin II, transports sodium back into cells in order to increase potassium excretion.

    Function of the Kidney:

    • What is a function of the kidney?

    • What is key component of renal function?

    Production of erythropoietin

    That is correct

    Production of angiotensin II

    that is incorrect

    produced in the lung blood vessels

    Production of insulin

    That is incorrect produced by pancreas

    urination

    That is incorrect

    this is done by the bladder

    removal of waste products

    That is correct

    muscle movement

    That is incorrect


    Basic concepts of renal failure l.jpg

    Basic Concepts of Renal Failure

    • “When 75-80% of renal function is lost, the kidneys lose their ability to regulate the internal environment and all organ systems and physiologic processes are affected by renal failure” (Lancaster, 2001, p. 119)

    • “Uremia or the uremic syndrome refers to the constellation of signs, symptoms and physicochemical changes that occur with either acute or chronic renal failure.” (Lancaster, 2001, p. 120)

    Lancaster, L. (Ed.). (2001). Core Curriculum for Nephrology Nursing (4th ed.). Pitman, NJ: American Nephrology Nurses' Association


    Basic concepts of renal failure12 l.jpg

    Basic Concepts of Renal Failure

    • Some Uremic Changes:

      • Fluid – electrolytes imbalances

        • fluid retention causing edema in legs, abdomen, and face

        • hyperkalemia,hypocalcaemia, hyperphosphatemia

      • Changes in cardiovascular system

        • Includes the RAAS due to decrease in renin production interrupting feedback loop

      • Changes in inflammatory –immune response

        • Altered T-cell function

        • Altered B-cell number and function

      • Accumulation of toxins

        • Urea

        • Creatinine

        • Uric acid

        • Beta 2 microglobulin

    What is myeloma l.jpg

    What is Myeloma?

    • Overproduction of a single immunoglobulin by cancerous plasma cells

    • Immunoglobulin is “a protein produced by body’s immune system to help fight infections”(Bashey & Huston, 2005, p. 2)

    • Normally the body make many different types of immunoglobulins (polyclonal)

    • In Myeloma the cancerous cells are monoclonal and are usually of no use to the body

    • These cells are called M-protein and can be detected in urine.

    • Research is being done to look at the various reasons for these changes – especially at certain genetic variations (such as Chromosome 13 deletion)

    Myeloma risk factors aging l.jpg

    Myeloma risk factors: AGING

    • Disease of the elderly

    • risk of myeloma is 10 times greater in those 75 to 79 compared to those 45 to 50

    • uncommon in people younger than 40 y/o

    • In short, higher age groups (especially after age 60 years)showed significantly risk of MM for both-sexes, men and women. (Khan, Mori, Sakauchi, Matsuo, Ozasa, & Tamakoshi, 2006, p. 579)

    • more often in African American than whites while Asians less likely than whites

    Renal failure in myeloma l.jpg

    Renal Failure in Myeloma

    • Mechanism of inflammation and damage

      • Light chain cast deposition – tubule obstruction (“myeloma kidney”) by protein deposits

      • Obstruction of tubules by plasmacytoma

      • Hypercalcemia, hyperuricemia: both of which can cause inflammation in the tubules due to high concentrations

      • Renal amyloid: can cause obstruction which will cause inflammation in the glomerulus

      • Recurrent pyelonephritis chronic recurrent infections that lead to chronic inflammation of the basement membrane of the nephron tubule

      • May develop RTA2 (Fanconi syndrome)

    • RVD – Revlimid®-Velcade®- dexamethasone

    • VTD – Velcade®- thalidomide-dexamethasone

    • VAD – Velcade®-Adriamycin®-Dexamethasone

      All these are high dose chemotherapy regimens that need monitoring in the elderly patient and in the renal insufficient patient


    Multiple myeloma treatment l.jpg

    Multiple Myeloma treatment

    • Autologous stem cell transplant

    • procedure that the patient’s own stem cells to restore blood cells after intense chemotherapy

    • good response rates even including elderly patients

    • process involves

      • pt in remission due to chemotherapy

      • pt’s stem cells harvested and frozen

      • pt receives conditioning therapy

      • stem cells are thawed and reinfused into the pt

      • results start to show in 10-14 days

    Multiple myeloma treatment27 l.jpg

    Multiple Myeloma treatment:

    • Another transplant type is allogeneic

    • This is when the stem cells come from a HLA matched donor (usually a sibling but not always)

    • This is called tissue typing and is used in many transplant procedures (not just stem cell transplantation)

    • The procedure is the same as for an autologous donation – just where the cells originate is different.

    • This treatment is in clinical trials


    Multiple myeloma treatment genetic l.jpg

    Multiple Myeloma TreatmentGenetic

    • Research is being done looking at different genetic polymorphisms and their effects

      • maintenance treatment after high dose therapy -(nuclear factor κB) (Vangsted et al., 2009)
