BACKGROUND Studies on hepatitis C virus antibodies (Anti-HCV) in CAPD patients are scarce and include a small number of patients. Nevertheless, risk factors related to Anti-HCV in these patients are still subject to controversy. Purpose of the study. To analyse the incidence and risk factors associated with the presence of Anti-HCV in CAPD patients. (More)
We conducted a retrospective study with 750 peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients in a Spanish multicenter registry between 1993 and 1999 to analyze comorbidity and mortality in type 1 diabetes (T1D), type 2 diabetes (T2D) and nondiabetic (ND) patients. 163 patients (21.7%) were diabetic--96 T1D (58.8%) and 67 T2D (42.2%)--while 587 were not (78.3%).

The state of iron deposits in long-term kidney graft recipients is not well-known. Angiotensin enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) reduce hematocrit levels in patients with posttransplant erythrocytosis (PTE), but their action on iron deposits has not been sufficiently evaluated. We designed this study to investigate the prevalence of iron deficiency among patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate catheter-related complications among self-locating and other variants of Tenckhoff catheters. PATIENTS AND METHODS We studied all self-locating catheters implanted in our hospitals from May/97 to Dec/05. We extended the follow-up to Jun/05. We collected demographic data, causes of catheter withdrawal and dropping of PD. We studied(More)
OBJECTIVE We analyzed malfunction rates (obstruction, omental wrapping, displacement) and catheter survival for self-locating catheters as compared with other Tenckhoff catheter designs. PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted our survey at two centers, prospectively studying all self-locating catheters implanted from May 1997 to October 2000 and used for(More)
