The incidence of end-stage renal disease is increasing and therefore, the number of patients requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT), renal dialysis or renal transplantation (RTx), has been rising. The various forms of RRT are associated with differences in survival and quality of life. Knowledge of long-term outcomes of these patients is imperative to the optimal implementation of treatment modalities and care for this patient population.
