Abstract

The Lombardy Registry of Dialysis and Transplantation (RLDT) since 1983 has collected data concerning patients affected by end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on renal replacement therapy (RRT) in Lombardy, a region of Northern Italy with 9 million inhabitants. This report illustrates the main features of ESRD patients on RRT: there were 6589 patients undergoing treatment at 31 December 2003, with a prevalence rate of 727 pmp. Patient numbers regularly increased by 4.5%/yr for the last 5 yrs. This phenomenon is probably due to the high incidence rate (172 pmp) of ESRD patients in Lombardy during these years related to a relatively stable mortality rate (15.2%). The increasing incidence is probably correlated to the population's characteristics: higher rates (189-223 pmp) were observed in certain provinces (Cremona, Lodi and Pavia) with a larger elderly population (people >65 yrs = >20%, people
