This chapter provides indicators to describe the specificity of End Stage Renal Disease in children in France and to study these patients'outcome and the choices of treatment modalities. In 2011, the incidence and the prevalence of ESRD among patients under 20 years old remained stable at 8 and 53 pmp respectively. The first causes of ESDR remain uropathies(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The complement inhibitor eculizumab has dramatically improved the outcome of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome. However, the optimal duration of eculizumab treatment in atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome remains debated. We report on the French atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome working group's first 2-year experience with(More)
Congenital abnormalities of the kidney and the urinary tract (CAKUT) are among the most frequent causes of antenatal consultation. In this retrospective study we evaluated the outcome of children for whom antenatal consultation was performed between 2006 and 2011 in one single pediatric nephrology center, with a particular focus on the outcome of children(More)
AIM Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) is a common cause of paediatric renal disease in children, representing 10-15% of paediatric glomerulonephritis. This study examined the long-term outcome of biopsy-proven HSP nephritis to identify correlations between disease development and treatment. METHODS Patients from three French centres were retrospectively(More)
BACKGROUND Studies in the USA and Europe have demonstrated inequalities in adult access to renal transplants. We previously demonstrate that the centre of treatment was impacting the time to be registered on the renal waiting list. In this study, we sought to ascertain the influence of patient and centre characteristics on the probability of transplantation(More)
UNLABELLED ♦ BACKGROUND Health-care systems must attempt to provide appropriate, high-quality, and economically sustainable care that meets the needs and choices of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). France offers 9 different modalities of dialysis, each characterized by dialysis technique, the extent of professional assistance, and the(More)
Inequalities between genders in access to transplantation have been demonstrated. We aimed to validate this gender inequality in a large pediatric population and to investigate its causes. This cohort study included 6454 patients starting renal replacement therapy before 18 years old, in 35 countries participating in the European Society for Paediatric(More)
Henoch–Schönlein purpura is the most common vasculitis in children. Its long-term prognosis depends on renal involvement. The management of Henoch–Schönlein purpura nephritis (HSPN) remains controversial. This study reports the prognosis of children with HSPN presenting with class 2 International Study of Kidney Disease in Children (ISKDC) nephritis. All(More)
BACKGROUND Major inequalities in access to renal transplant waiting lists have been demonstrated among adult patients both in the USA and Europe. In this French nationwide study, we sought to ascertain the influence of patient and centre characteristics. METHODS We included all children (<18 years) in the French End-Stage Renal Disease National Registry,(More)
The treatment for patients with Stokes-Adams attacks complicating complete heart block now includes implantation of electrical pacemakers (Elmqvist and Senning, 1960; Glenn et al., 1959; Simpson et al., 1962). With increasing clinical experience, complications of this form of treatment are becoming more apparent. These include component failure with(More)
