Long-term survival of children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has increased in the last 20 years, but the mortality rate remains high. Cardiovascular disease accounts for 40 to 50% of all deaths, infectious disease for about 20%. A prolonged period of dialysis versus having a renal graft and persistent hypertension are mortality risk factors. The prevalence of the various morbidities is high among those who have reached adulthood. Nearly 50% of all these patients suffer from left… Expand
Infections in Pediatric Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease
TLDR
This chapter reviews factors predisposing to infections in children with ESRD and examines the burden of infectious complications in two common dialysis modalities, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Expand
Treatments and outcomes for end-stage renal disease following Wilms tumor
TLDR
Re-evaluation of current guidelines for a 2-year delay in transplant following WT treatment may be warranted, in view of the continuing high mortality in patients with ESRD, and the dramatic improvement in outlook following kidney transplantation. Expand
The effects of chronic kidney disease on quality of life in children and adolescents
Chronic disease can impair physical and cognitive function of individuals and lead to a decrease in the quality of life and disability. Decades ago, when treatment options to support children withExpand
Twenty-five years of infant dialysis: a single center experience.
TLDR
Long-term survival is possible in infants with ESKD, although mortality and morbidity remain high, and technical innovations are needed to accommodate smaller infants undergoing dialysis. Expand
OUTCOME AND RISK FACTORS FOR MORTALITY IN PEDIATRIC PERITONEAL DIALYSIS
TLDR
Mortality was low in pediatric patients receiving CAPD and hypoalbuminemia showed a significant association with death in CAPD patients. Expand
Long-term outcome of chronic dialysis in children
TLDR
The available outcome data for children on chronic dialysis as well as extrapolating data from the larger adult dialysis experience to inform paediatric practice are reviewed. Expand
Dialysis strategies to improve growth in children with chronic kidney disease.
TLDR
In children on chronic dialysis, linear growth may be improved by ensuring that optimal clinical care is provided, and the administration of recombinant human growth hormone treatment and the use of more frequent and intensive dialysis sessions, to limit cachexia. Expand
Survival in children requiring chronic renal replacement therapy
TLDR
This educational review aims to delineate current evidence regarding mortality risk in the pediatric ESRD population and provide pediatric nephrologists with up-to-date information required to counsel affected families. Expand
European disparities in the incidence and outcomes of children with end-stage renal disease
TLDR
It is demonstrated that grafts from carefully selected older donors offer excellent graft survival probabilities in paediatric recipients, and when a living donor is unavailable, the differential graft failure risk of deceased donor age and recipient age should be taken into account during the allocation process. Expand
Long-term outcome of chronic dialysis in children
TLDR
Both a younger age at the start of renal replacement therapy and comorbidity are significant risk factors for death in children receiving chronic dialysis in the authors' centre for >3 months with a minimum follow-up of 5 years. Expand

Long-term survival of children with end-stage renal disease.
TLDR
Overall, a trend toward improved survival was observed over the four decades of the study, and mortality rates among children requiring renal-replacement therapy remain substantially higher than those among children without end-stage renal disease. Expand
Quality of life in adults with end-stage renal disease since childhood is only partially impaired.
BACKGROUND Little is known about the quality of life of adults with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) since childhood. In a long-term follow-up study, we assessed quality of life in these patients andExpand
Cardiac disease in young adult patients with end-stage renal disease since childhood: a Dutch cohort study.
TLDR
Young adult patients with pediatric ESRD are at risk for LVH caused by hypertension and for aortic valve calcification, and diastolic function decreases with age and is enhanced by a current low GFR. Expand
Mortality and causes of death of end-stage renal disease in children: a Dutch cohort study.
TLDR
Survival in children with ESRD has increased over the last 20 years, but the SMR remains high; early transplantation and a more vigorous approach toward hypertension and infection may be mandatory in order to further reduce mortality. Expand
Long-term outcomes in pediatric renal transplant recipients who survive into adulthood
TLDR
Despite a high retransplantation rate and the presence of significant morbidity, renal transplantation in children can lead to attainment of a productive and satisfying life, with a high degree of rehabilitation in adulthood. Expand
Advanced Coronary and Carotid Arteriopathy in Young Adults With Childhood-Onset Chronic Renal Failure
TLDR
Young adults with childhood-onset CRF have a high prevalence of arteriopathy associated with indicators of microinflammation, hyperparathyroidism, calcium-phosphate overload, and hyperhomocysteinemia but not traditional atherogenic risk factors. Expand
Increased arterial stiffness in young adults with end-stage renal disease since childhood.
TLDR
It is revealed that carotid arterial wall stiffness is increased in young adult patients with pediatric ESRD and current systolic hypertension was associated with increased E(inc) and decreased DC. Expand
Social consequences in adult life of end-stage renal disease in childhood.
TLDR
Prolonged dialysis during childhood may decrease the ability to gain high-skilled professions and social independence, and unemployment is twice as high in adult patients with childhood ESRD than in healthy persons. Expand
De novo malignancy after paediatric renal replacement therapy
TLDR
The long term risk of certain malignancies is significantly increased in children who have undergone renal replacement therapy, and awareness of this risk of malignancy in these patients is necessary, especially after treatment with cyclophosphamide. Expand
Early posttransplantation hypertension and poor long-term renal allograft survival in pediatric patients.
TLDR
Early posttransplantation systolic hypertension strongly and independently predicts poor long-term graft survival in pediatric patients. Expand
