Objective: In this study; we aimed to determine the the effectiveness of infection control measures in patients undergoing hemodialysis for chronic renal failure by analyzing the HBsAg, anti-HBs, anti-HCV and anti-HIV serologic indicators retrospectively. Materils and Methods: HBsAg, anti-HBs, anti-HCV and anti-HIV parameters of 96 patients receiving hemodialysis treatment in 2012 were analysed with the ADVIA Centaur XP Immunoassay System by CLIA method. Results: In this study; there was no HBsAg and anti-HIV positive patients. All the patients were regularly and fully vaccinated for hepatitis B but 10 patients (10.4%) had anti-HBs antibody level under 10 mIU/mL. 4 patients (4.1%) were positive for anti-HCV. Statistically significant difference was detected in anti-HCV positivity for hemodialysis duration, gender, history of dental treatment and the presence of hepatitis in the family. Conclusion: In conclusion; appropriate infection control measures in hemodialysis patients, immunization and education of patients and health care workers can reduce the possibility of transmission of infectious agents.

    Background: The choice of vascular access (VA) for hemodialysis (HD) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is arteriovenous fistula (AVF) or central venous catheter (CVC). Whereas clinical practice guidelines suggest AVF to preserve the vascular bed, pediatric nephrologists tend to favor CVC for...

    Elevated serum phosphorus is associated with higher death risk in hemodialysis patients. Previous studies have suggested that both higher serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) level and higher dietary protein intake may contribute to higher serum phosphorus levels. However, it is not well known how...
