BACKGROUND It is estimated that 20-50% of adult patients start chronic dialysis therapy without prior contact with a nephrologist. The aim of this nationwide study was to assess clinical and metabolic status of children at the start of chronic dialysis in Poland with regard to the timing of the referral to a nephrologist. METHODS We studied data of 180(More)
UNLABELLED One of the objectives of Polish Registry of Renal Replacement Therapy in Children established on 31st Dec. 2000 was to collect complete data on etiology of end stage renal disease (ESRD) in polish children. MATERIAL AND METHODS Data on 469 patients (251 boys, 218 girls) aged 0-22 years treated with renal replacement therapy (RRT) at 13(More)
We retrospectively analysed peritoneal dialysis treatment in 29 infants dialysed in 9 paediatric centres in Poland in the years 1993-2004. The mean age at the start of dialysis was 4.9 +/- 3.5 months (range 2 days to 11 months), mean body mass 5.6 +/- 2.5 kg (range 2.5 to 11 kg). The mean duration of PD was 6.8 +/- 3.9 in the first year of life and total(More)
OBJECTIVE Acute renal failure (ARF) is still a frequent complication following extensive cardiac surgery. Renal replacement therapy (RRT) modality preferences to treat critically ill children have shifted from peritoneal dialysis to continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT), although the experience with the latter is still highly limited in the infants.(More)
We set out to assess the effect of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) on residual renal function (RRF) in children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In 101 children (age: 8.84 +/- 5.25 years; 44 on CAPD, 57 on APD) over 36 months, we evaluated RRF [as daily diuresis (DD) in mL/kg/24 h and mL/m2/24 h],(More)
OBJECTIVE Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are applied as a standard therapy in children with anaemia in chronic kidney disease. The aim of this study was to describe the efficacy and details of ESA treatment in a population of dialysed children in Poland. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study had a prospective observational design and was performed in(More)
PURPOSE The mortality of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is much higher than that of the general population. To date no data has been published on the mortality of children with ESRD in Poland. The aim of this study was to compare the risk of death for pediatric patients on renal replacement therapy (RRT) with that of the general pediatric(More)
UNLABELLED Disturbances of calcium-phosphate metabolism are one of the most prominent complications of chronic kidney disease with high impact on cardiovascular complications and outcome. The aim of the study was to assess the clinical efficacy of CKD-related calcium-phosphate homeostasis treatment in children and adolescents on chronic dialysis in a(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this multicenter nationwide study was to reveal the influence of social and non-medical factors on qualifying children to commence chronic dialysis, to withhold it or to withdraw it. It was also important to compare the real and postulated significance of particular factors that were taken under consideration by pediatric(More)
The hospital records of 56 patients (25M, 31F) with acute or chronic renal failure treated by peritoneal dialysis were retrospectively reviewed. Mean dialysis time was 13 +/- 15 days in acute renal failure and 32 +/- 23 months in chronic renal failure. The incidence of infectious (exit site infections and peritonitis) and non-infectious dialysis-related(More)
