Abstract

The authors report data from the Regional Piedmontese Registry about the evolution of choices concerning dialytic therapy in the 20 regional dialysis Units during the years 1981-1990. They confirm a scale-down of acetate dialysis that is replaced with bicarbonate dialysis; besides a limited use of convective dialysis whereas peritoneal dialysis is steady. At the same time they remark an increase in admittance to dialysis and older patients.
