Association of dialysate bicarbonate concentration with mortality in the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS
The serum calcium level was 8.72 mg/dl, lower than that in DOPPS4 and in the Chinese DOPPS
. Moreover, the overall incidence of hypocalcemia in Hebei Province was 35.9%, higher than that in DOPPS4 (12.4%). The mean serum phosphorus level in Hebei was 6.06 mg/dl, and the hyperphosphatemia rate was 58.6%.
En el caso de las FAVp, segun los datos aportados por el estudio DOPPS
(200), el inicio de la puncion ocurre entre las 2 y 4 semanas en el 62% de los pacientes norteamericanos, el 61% de los europeos y el 42% de los japoneses.
Even in the developed world, the subtle psychiatric needs of the patients may remain under diagnosed and under treated9 as suggested by the DOPPS
data but this problem becomes more significant in resource limited settings.
Predictors of early mortality among incident US hemodialysis patients in the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS
Recovery time, quality of life, and mortality in hemodialysis patients: the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS
In addition, because the development cohort includes only patients who survived the first 3 months, whereas the validation cohort of DOPPS
includes mainly prevalent patients, it is still not a perfect risk predictor for frail elderly, in which the risk of short-term mortality is what needs to be predicted.

Data derived from the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS
) showed that male CKD patients are prone to start dialysis earlier than women and usually exhibit a worse survival rate .
As shown by Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS
), there has been wide variation in the prevalence of HCV among different dialysis units and countries with mean HCV prevalence of 13.5% and variation among countries is 2.6-22.9%.
