Abstract
Statistics
La prevalencia de ERC en España es del 11%, con una tasa elevada de factores de riesgo vascular asociados y el progresivo incremento del número de pacientes subsidiarios de depuración extrarrenal, estimado en un 5-8% anual, ha convertido a esta enfermedad en un problema sanitario, social y económico de primer orden para todos los sistemas sanitarios de los países desarrollados. La terapia renal sustitutiva, aunque es adecuada, no es óptima para solventar el problema asistencial.
The prevalence of CKD in Spain is 11%, with a high rate of associated vascular risk factors and a progressive increase in the number of patients requiring kidney replacement therapy, estimated at 5-8% annually. This has made CKD one of the leading health, social and economic problems for the health care systems of all developed countries. Kidney replacement therapy, although adequate, is not optimal for solving this clinical problem.
