Incidence of end-stage kidney disease in Australia 1997–2013

4 Oct 2016
Description

Summary: End-stage kidney disease (ESKD) is the most severe form of chronic kidney disease, where kidney function deteriorates to the extent that kidney replacement therapy (KRT) in the form of dialysis or kidney transplantation is required to survive. This report estimates the total number of new cases (incidence) of ESKD in Australia, including cases treated with KRT and those not receiving these treatments.

The total incidence of ESKD has been estimated by using data from the Australian and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry and Australian Institute of Health and Welfare National Mortality Database.
