End-stage kidney disease
End-stage kidney disease is a complete or near complete failure of the kidneys to function to excrete wastes, concentrate urine, and regulate electrolytes . Also called End-stage renal disease (ESRD).
Alternative Names
Renal failure - end stage; Kidney failure - end stage; ESRD
End-stage kidney disease occurs when the kidneys are no longer able to function at a level that is necessary for day to day life. It usually occurs as chronic renal failure progresses to the point where kidney function is less than 10% of baseline. At this point, the kidney function is so low that without dialysis or kidney transplantation, complications are multiple and severe, and death will occur from accumulation of fluids and waste products in the body.

Methods We examined the long-term survival of all children and adolescents who were under 20 years of age when renal-replacement therapy commenced (study period, April 1963 through March 2002), using data from the Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant methods and age-standardized mortality rates. Risk factors for death were analyzed with the use of Cox regression analysis with time-dependent covariates. Results A total of 1634 children and adolescents were followed for a median of 9.7 years.

End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)
by Debra Wood, RN Renal failure (or kidney failure) occurs when the kidneys are not able to perform their normal functions. It usually occurs in middle-aged and older people. The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs on either side of the spine in the lower back. Their main functions are to remove waste from the body and to balance the water and mineral content of the blood by filtering waste, minerals, and water. The waste and water combine to form urine. Anatomy of the Kidney End-stage renal disease (ESRD) refers to a permanent condition in which the kidneys are no longer able to filter waste from the blood. As the wastes build up, the tiny filters in the kidneys (nephrons) continue to lose their filtering ability. Although damage to the nephrons may occur suddenly after an injury or poisoning, many kidney diseases take years or even decades to cause noticeable damage. The two most common causes of ESRD are:
  • Diabetes “ the nephrons are damaged by chronically high blood sugar levels that occur in poorly controlled diabetes High blood pressure “ causes damage to the capillaries in the kidneys
End-stage renal disease can lead to anemia, high blood pressure, bone disorders, heart failure, and mental ˜fuzziness.

Children's Hospital Medical Center of Cincinnati has cared for children with end-stage renal disease for more than 30 years, and our nephrologists and surgeons are in the forefront of clinical research for children with end-stage renal disease.
Areas of Emphasis
  • Managing children whose renal failure is accompanied by severe congenital anomalies and/or bladder dysfunction. Using a team approach to nutrition, growth promotion, and staged surgical repair, with attention to maintaining access to dialysis, the end-stage renal disease team has successfully rehabilitated a number of children with devastating anomalies.
  • Staged surgical procedures, including bladder augmentation or replacement; creation of a Mitrofanoff neourethra; urinary and bowel incontinence repairs; and nephrectomy.
  • Developing and monitoring clinical guidelines for childhood renal transplantation.

Reimbursement for Treatment of End-Stage Renal Disease
by Maureen McKinley, MSW, LSCW When beginning dialysis, many people wonder how they are going to pay for this costly treatment. Every dialysis clinic has a social worker to help answer this and other questions related to adjusting to life with kidney disease. The social worker will have information on insurance plans and other sources of financial assistance. Medicare
Medicare has two types of coverage: Part A and Part B. Part A covers 100 percent of most inpatient expenses and is free to those who have paid into the Social Security system. Part B covers 80 percent of outpatient expenses and is covered by a monthly premium. For those receiving Social Security Disability or Retirement benefits, the Part B premium is automatically deducted from the monthly benefit payment. Those not receiving Social Security payments are billed every three months for their Medicare Part B coverage. It is possible to enroll in just Part A of Medicare. This is not advisable for people with renal disease, however, as it is Part B which covers maintenance dialysis treatment, laboratory work, and many other services needed by people who have ESRD.. Supplemental insurance
Part B of Medicare pays only 80 percent of outpatient treatment after satisfaction of an annual deductible, so additional insurance is necessary to cover the remaining 20 percent of dialysis. The cost of maintenance dialysis varies somewhat from state to state, but on the average, the monthly Medicare allowable charge is $2,000. Medicare covers 80 percent of this, or approximately $1,600. The $400 that is left over is usually covered by supplemental insurance. Most people have some type of private insurance coverage when they develop renal failure. After they become eligible for Medicare, they use their private insurance as supplemental coverage. Many insurance companies allow subscribers to convert to a Medicare supplement plan, which has less expensive premiums, once enrolling in Medicare. Supplemental insurance can also cover the annual Medicare Part B deductible.

Although hypertension and low income already are linked to an increased risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) for both African-American and white men, the two factors may help explain the four-fold higher incidence of ESRD found in blacks, compared to whites, according to a study led by Johns Hopkins researchers published in the April 23 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association. These results also may help physicians design more effective treatment strategies, says Michael J. Klag, M.D., Hopkins associate professor of medicine and principal investigator for the study. "These results indicate that interventions designed to address the markedly higher incidence of end-stage renal disease in African-American men need to focus on ethnic disparities in blood pressure and socioeconomic status," he says. In the study, data were analyzed from 332,544 men (300,645 white, 20,222 African-American, 11,677 other ethnic groups) aged 35 to 57 years who had been screened for the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial, a study designed to examine the effects of various interventions on coronary heart disease. The incidence of ESRD was assessed using the Health Care Financing Administration national ESRD Treatment Registry. Death from renal disease was assessed using data from the National Death Index and the Social Security Administration.

High Rates of Tuberculosis in End-Stage Renal Failure: the Impact of International Migration
David A.J. Moore, Liz Lightstone, Babak Javid, and Jon S. Friedland
Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, Hammersmith Hospital, London, United Kingdom We studied a cohort of patients requiring renal dialysis who had migrated to the United Kingdom from tuberculosis (TB)-endemic countries and found extremely high rates of TB (1,187 cases per 100,000 per year), partly associated with end-stage diabetic renal disease. We recommend enhanced vigilance and screening of such patients, both to reduce illness and death and to prevent nosocomial spread of TB among susceptible persons. Immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees from war and oppression often originate in countries where tuberculosis (TB) is endemic and relocate to more affluent countries, where the incidence of TB is low. A proportion of such persons will have or develop renal failure requiring renal replacement therapy (hemodialysis or continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis [CAPD]). Chronic renal failure impairs immune function and is associated with an increased incidence of TB. Among patients with chronic renal failure requiring renal replacement therapy, rates of TB 10- to 25-fold greater than those in the general population have been reported from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan, equating to incidence rates of approximately 250 cases per 100,000 per year (
