1 Outcomes of dialysis in newborns
Gianni Celsi Pediatric Nephrology Unit Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden

2 Causes of ARF in neonates
hypovolemia, sepsis, low cardiac output Prerenal 75-80% Intrinsic 10-15% Postrenal 5-10% PUV,PJO

3 How is the prognosis of pre- and postrenal ARF in neonates?

4 Prognosis of ARF 40-60 % survival Depending on underling disease
Depending on co-morbidity Reversible

5 What about ESRD?

6 Causes of ESRD in neonates
Prerenal Intrinsic Postrenal

7 Causes of intrinsic renal ESRD in neonates
Prenatal Agenesis Hypoplasia Dysplasia Cystic diseases Obstruction Postnatal DIC, ATN

8 What is the general consensus for intrinsic ESRD in neonates?

9 Intrinsic renal ESRD in neonates
Rare Extremely poor prognosis Renal replacement therapy not always recommended. As recently as 1998, only 40% of international pediatric nephrologists would offer dialysis to infants < 1 month (J. Pediatr 1998, 133, )

10 How is the prognosis of ESRD in neonates?

11 Survival after dialysis in neonates with ESRD
Age at start n Survival % Matthews et al, J Ped Surg1990 <2 m 31 39 infants whose renal failure was isolated were more likely to undergo successful dialysis Blowey et al, JPerinatol. 1993 <1 y 23 65 Ellis et al, Adv Perit Dial. 1995 21 80-36 infants with anuria or oliguria had a higher mortality (64%) than did infants with adequate urine output (20%).

13 For physicians and parents alike, the decision to initiate long-term dialysis for a neonate with presumptive ESRD poses a complex ethical quandary.This dilemma derives,at least in part, from the paucity of published reports describing the outcomes of infants who initiate dialysis during the first month of life. Neonates were as likely to terminate dialysis during the study period as were older children. However, the reason for terminating dialysis differed significantly between the 2 age groups. Neonates were more likely to terminate because of death, and they were less likely to terminate because of transplantation.

14 Death 17/193 Recovery of function 23/193
Neonates with renal dysplasia or obstructive uropathy are at risk for associated congenital anomalies, either true malformations or deformations, because of severe oligohydramnios. In such cases, the presence of significant comorbid conditions may preclude long-term dialysis as a bridge to renal transplantation, thus excluding these neonates from the NAPRTCS database.

15 Aetiology and outcome of acute and chronic renal failure in infants
Nephrol Dial Transplant (2008) 23: 1575–1580 Between 1997 and 2004 all children <1 year of age with a serum creatinine >100 µmol/l were followed up for up to 6 years. - 49 infants with ESRD - 21 started dialysis between days of age 4 neonates were not offered RRT because of parents wish mortality: ARPKD 100% dysplasia 22% obstraction 6%

18 How is the prognosis of ESRD in preterms?

20 Antenatal oligohydramnios of renal origin: long-term outcome
Nephrol Dial Transplant (2007) 22: 432–439 A total of 23 infants (16 males, 7 females) with an antenatal diagnosis of oligohydramnios were retrospectively studied - Survival 70% 4 children were not offered RRT (GA 34-39) only 2 children started dialysis at birth (GA 38-40)

21 Age at onset of dialysis in preterms with ESRD

22 Survival of preterms with dialysis onset at birth
