Renal disease in the elderly.

Abstract

The types of renal disease that are particularly common in the elderly include acute renal failure, prerenal azotemia, multiple myeloma kidney, and obstruction. Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, now proven effective in controlling renal disease in older patients, require special considerations when applied to the elderly patient.
