  • The average life expectancy for people on dialysis has been five to 10 years. (

  • Before the surgery, Roley's father, Mike Navarec of Stockton, Calif., had chronic kidney disease that kept him at home for hours tethered to a dialysis machine and "worried about whether or not I would wake up in the morning," he said. (
  • This chain of living donors and others like it could help increase the number of kidney transplants, lead to better matches that will increase survival and even reduce spending on costly, long-term dialysis, said the Ohio doctor behind the effort. (
  • One of her kidneys began to deteriorate, and she had to begin regular dialysis. (
  • But now through these so-called paired kidney donation programs, offered by hospitals that specialize in transplantation, people who otherwise would remain ill or on dialysis are getting a new lease on life. (

  • Dialysis is the process of an external machine doing the work of the kidney - that is, filtering waste products from the blood and excess fluids from the body. (
  • During dialysis, blood is removed from the body by the pumps on a machine, passed through an artificial kidney, and returned to the body with fewer waste products. (
  • Over a few hours, the artificial kidney removes a lot of waste, which allows the patient to be well until the next dialysis session. (
  • Most people waiting for a kidney transplant are on dialysis. (
  • The whirling hum of a dialysis machine could have been the soundtrack to the rest of Zahra Hajikarimi's life but for an unusual program in Iran that allows people to buy a kidney from a living donor. (

  • Saria suffers from an autoimmune disease that has caused her kidneys to fail and requires dialysis. (
  • Previous studies have defined kidney failure as those receiving long-term dialysis, which reflects both disease progression and a treatment decision. (
  • Because it is plausible that the likelihood of initiating long-term dialysis among individuals with kidney failure varies by age, earlier studies may provide an incomplete picture of the burden of advanced kidney disease in older adults, based on the incidence of long-term dialysis alone, the researchers wrote. (
  • The study to determine whether age is associated with the likelihood of treated kidney failure (renal replacement therapy: receipt of long-term dialysis or kidney transplantation), untreated kidney failure, and all-cause mortality, was conducted by Brenda R. Hemmelgarn, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and colleagues. (
