According to recently published results, home hemodialysis treatment centers may impact technique failure and patient mortality independent of case-mix.
Researchers performed a retrospective cohort study of 579 patients from seven home hemodialysis centers in Canada. Patients were followed for a mean of 2.6 years. Outcomes assessed included technique failure and mortality. Technique failure included the discontinuation of home hemodialysis therapy for any reason apart from training failure, death or transplantation. Investigators used Cox proportional hazard models and adjusted for treatment center and modiable and nonmodiable patient-level variables.
