Long-Term Survival in Dialysis Patients: A Demographic Overview

Abstract

Most of the data concerning survival of patients treated with maintenance dialysis therapies for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) published in the literature over the years are limited to up to 5–7 year survival after commencement of renal replacement therapy (RRT). This is true in particular for the data released on regular time-intervals through national or international renal data Registries such as the Registry of the European Dialysis and Transplant Association (EDTA-ERA) (1, 2, 3) or the United States Renal Data System (USRDS) (4), the Canadian Organ Transplant Register (5) or the Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (6). Comprehensive data relating to long-term survival for dialysis patients (10 or more years post start of treatment) are scarce (1) and usually display the experience of individual dialysis centres (7, 8, 9, 10, 11) or that of a small number of dialysis units operating within a limited geographical area (12). Overviews concerning experiences of very long survival on dialysis have also been reported on, or by, individual patients taken onto RRT during the early years of development of maintenance dialysis as a life-sustaining therapy for ESRD (13, 14, 15, 16).
