"The fact the USRDS
data show reductions in hospital stays and complications demonstrates improved quality of care and quality of life."
Information from VA, USRDS
, and Medicare administrative data was used to construct characteristics of each patient at the time of dialysis initiation (Table 1, Appendix SA4).
Another report of USRDS
showed that there is an increase in the rate of infection-related hospitalizations of HD patients while there is a fall in the rate for other disorders, that suggests there is an urgent need for effective strategies to prevent dialysis-related infections (9).

The prevalence of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) inpediatric patients has grown 32% since 1990.1According to the United States Renal Data Systems (USRDS
) 2012 Annual Report, the prevalence rate of pediatric ESRD in the United States reached 86 per 1 million population in 2010, with almost 7,000 pediatric patients on dialysis.
CKD affects subjects in different age groups of both sexes (BREGMAN, 2006; SBN, 2011) and of different ethnic groups (CASS et al., 2002; FEEHALLY, 2003; ROMAO JUNIOR, 2004; USRDS
, 2009; SALGADO FILHO; BRITO, 2006).
The United States Renal Data System (USRDS
), a comprehensive registry of all patients with ESRD in the United States, publishes annual reports describing the characteristics and clinical attributes of the population with ESRD based on information from Form 2728 [1-2].
Renal Data System (USRDS
) records, the proportion of patients initiating hemodialysis early rose from 20% to 52% between 1996 and 2008, even though there is no evidence of substantial benefit with the practice.
