Topical Collection Information
End stage kidney disease is among the most deadly and economically costly conditions faced by patients and modern society. The last decade has provided a number of advances in renal replacement therapy, particularly in hemodialysis. This refers to the preparation, initiation, and individualization of dialysis programs. The most important stage is choosing and installing the optimal vascular access-lifeline, as this strongly influences hospitalization burden and patient survival. The daily life of a dialysis patient is limited by fatigue, depression, and co-morbidities. This can be partially improved by the correct nutrition, exercising, and adequate dialysis. Patient-reported outcomes and health-related quality of life can help us to adjust both patient needs and medical indices. It is also important to analyze the economic costs of different practices, especially in the preparation for dialysis, vascular access functionality and complications, dialysis membranes and technical aspects.
This Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine will cover the following important aspects of hemodialysis:
- Nutrition in dialysis patients;
- Physical activity and rehabilitation during and after hemodialysis sessions;
- The correct vascular access in individual patients;
- Prevention and treatment of catheter-related infection and dysfunction;
- Outcomes in patients with cardiorenal syndromes on dialysis maintenance;
- Indices of dialysis adequacy;
- Mental health and dementia in dialysis patients;
- Health technology assessment (HTA) regarding preparation before and during a hemodialysis program;
- Patient-reported outcomes (PRO) and health-related quality of life issues.
