Show Summary Details


Chapter 19 covers landmark papers in clinical epidemiology in nephrology, and includes observational studies information about chronic kidney disease (CKD) in settings other than renal replacement therapy. In particular, a major public health advance has been the recognition that apparently small decrements in kidney function are important markers of adverse events including death, cardiovascular disease, and hospitalization; Eight of these landmark studies are based on dialysis populations, one on both dialysis and transplant populations, and one applies to CKD in the general population.
