MATERIAL AND METHODS: Nondiabetic patients (> 65 years) who initiated dialysis therapy for ESRD during January 2006-December 2007.
RESULTS: In HD group, the median CCI calculated 6 month before initiating dialysis therapy was 5.87, with limits between 3 and 11. At the time of initiating dialysis, the median CCI was 6.55 (limits 3-11). In peritoneal dialysis group, CCI evaluated 6 months before initiating dialysis had a median value of 7.38, with limits between 3 and 11. At the time of initiating dialysis procedure, the median CCI was 7.72.
CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that PD is, in the majority of situations, a better option for dialysis in elderly.
