The construct of frailty has been associated with adverse outcomes among elderly individuals, but the prevalence and significance of frailty among patients with end-stage renal disease have not been established. The aim of the current study was to determine the prevalence and predictors of frailty 
Frailty as a Novel Predictor of Mortality and Hospitalization in Individuals of All Ages Undergoing Hemodialysis
To quantify the prevalence of frailty in adults of all ages undergoing chronic hemodialysis, its relationship to comorbidity and disability, and its association with adverse outcomes of mortality andExpand
Depressive symptoms, frailty, and mortality among dialysis patients
Introduction: Frailty and depression are highly prevalent in the dialysis population, but the association between them, the risk factors for their development, and their independent associations withExpand
CKD and frailty: outcomes from a quality initiative for older patients
TLDR
The Renal Unit at the Hammersmith Hospital has introduced an ongoing quality initiative project, aimed at supporting older patients on dialysis, and Carol Bartholomew et al discuss the outcomes so far. Expand
Relationship between chronic kidney disease without diabetes mellitus and components of frailty in community‐dwelling Japanese older adults
TLDR
To evaluate the relationship between kidney function without diabetes and components of the frailty phenotype in community‐dwelling Japanese older adults, a large number of older adults have never had diabetes. Expand
Diabetic nephropathy is associated with frailty in patients with chronic hemodialysis
TLDR
The authors carried out the present study to reveal the association between frailty and diabetic nephropathy in chronic hemodialysis patients. Expand

TLDR
To investigate the prevalence of frailty, and the relationship ofFrailty based on the Kihon Checklist criteria with dialysis duration before transplantation and time after transplantation in kidney transplant recipients, researchers use a database of more than 20,000 kidney transplant patients from around the world.

Simple self‐report FRAIL scale might be more closely associated with dialysis complications than other frailty screening instruments in rural chronic dialysis patients
TLDR
Comparison of different self‐report questionnaires in assessing frailty among rural patients undergoing chronic dialysis patients has not been attempted before. Expand
Measuring Frailty in Inpatient Rehabilitation
In response to the global aging population, there has been increasing research on frailty. How frailty is conceptualized is shifting with the development of frailty models, especially in the acuteExpand
Incidence, management, and outcomes of end-stage renal disease in the elderly.
TLDR
The elderly constitute a substantial and growing fraction of the end-stage renal disease population and recent studies on ESRD incidence, management, and outcomes in the elderly are reviewed. Expand
Incorporating the Clinical Frailty Scale into routine outpatient nephrology practice: an observational study of feasibility and associations
TLDR
Frailty assessment via CFS was feasible in outpatient practice, when integrated into routine clinical assessment in a dedicated clinic, and appears associated with increased planned Conservative Management of ESKD. Expand

Frailty: Emergence and Consequences in Women Aged 65 and Older in the Women's Health Initiative Observational Study
TLDR
This work defines frailty using simple indicators and investigates the predictive validity of this frailty classification for death, hospitalization, hip fracture, and activity of daily living disability. Expand
The presence of frailty in elderly persons with chronic renal insufficiency.
TLDR
Elderly persons with CRI have a high prevalence of frailty, which may signal their risk for progression to adverse health outcomes and warrant special interventions to preserve their independence, quality of life, and survival. Expand
Frailty in older adults: evidence for a phenotype.
TLDR
This study provides a potential standardized definition for frailty in community-dwelling older adults and offers concurrent and predictive validity for the definition, and finds that there is an intermediate stage identifying those at high risk of frailty. Expand

TLDR
The Interventions on Frailty Working Group developed recommendations to screen, recruit, evaluate, and retain frail older persons in clinical trials. Expand

TLDR
A narrative review of current understanding of the definitions and distinguishing characteristics of each of these conditions, including their clinical relevance and distinct prevention and therapeutic issues, and how they are related is provided. Expand
Toward an Understanding of Frailty
TLDR
An understanding of frailty is presented by describing many of its clinical correlates and considering evidence for its biological underpinnings, a way to identify frailty at its incipient stages and differentiate it from associated comorbid conditions. Expand
Decreased survival among sedentary patients undergoing dialysis: results from the dialysis morbidity and mortality study wave 2.
TLDR
Sedentary behavior is associated with an increased risk for mortality among dialysis patients similar in magnitude to that of other well-established risk factors, such as a one-point reduction in serum albumin concentration. Expand
Phenotype of frailty: characterization in the women's health and aging studies.
TLDR
The frailty definition developed in the CHS is applicable across diverse population samples and identifies a profile of high risk of multiple adverse outcomes and is consistent with the widely held theory that conceptualizes frailty as a syndrome. Expand

A brief description of endocrine problems in adult patients with ESRD with a focus on the somatotropic axis is given, and the experience reported in published trials of GH treatment in this patient group is reviewed. Expand
Impact of renal insufficiency on mortality in advanced lower extremity peripheral arterial disease.
TLDR
Both moderate and severe renal insufficiency are associated with an increased odds of death in patients with critical limb ischemia and death rates were particularly high among those with a GFR <30 ml/min per 1.73 m(2), which may be partly explained by their more frequent presentation with ischemic ulceration or gangrene rather than rest pain.
