Factors Affecting Outcomes in Patients Reaching End-Stage Kidney Disease Worldwide: Differences in Access to Renal Replacement Therapy, Modality Use, and Hemodialysis Practices
Online First abstract from The Lancet.

"For most patients with ESKD worldwide who are treated with in-centre haemodialysis, overall survival is poor, but longer in some Asian countries than elsewhere in the world, and longer in Europe than in the USA, although this gap has reduced."

Editor's note: Hasn't this statement remained unchanged for the last 5,10,15 years?

U.S. nephrologists continue to follow leaders like Kent Thiry, who stated in May 2013, "When your kidney fails, you die unless you’re one of the fortunate few who get transplanted."

Does a well-patient model of care have any place in for-profit, in-center, dialysis care in the USA?  U.S. nephrologists consider in-center hemodialysis treatments to be a deathtrap and would avoid it for themselves for their own family members.
