[Journal article] Risk Factors for Short-Term All-Cause Mortality in Patients with End Stage Renal Disease: A Scoping Review

04 Mar 2024

Authors: Wanfen Yip, Sheryl Hui Xian Ng, Palvinder Kaur, Pradeep Paul George, Jennifer Huey Chen Guan, Guozhang Lee, Timothy Jee Kam Koh, Woan Shin Tan, Allyn Yin Mei Hum

Published in: BMC Nephrology 25, 71 (2024). https://doi.org/10.1186/s12882-024-03503-3

Summary points:

  • Commonly examined risk factors observed from this review may be used to build a general prognostic model for patients with ESRD.
  • While there are consistent findings for C-reactive protein measurements (CRP) and functional status, a lack of clinical cut-off thresholds for CRP and standardised way to measure functional status affects clinical applicability of these risk factors.
  • Following the development of the prognos­tic models, examining the implementation process (e.g., acceptability to patients, caregivers and clinicians) will also be crucial to understand the impact of the models on treatment preferences and receptivity.
