End-stage renal disease: a new comorbidity index for estimating mortality risk in ESRD.

Abstract

A new comorbidity index predicts the risk of mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (eSrD). This index, which was developed using data from a large US database, is an important tool for observational research in patients with eSrD, but its value in patient populations other than dialysis populations in the US needs to be validated.
