Assessing the Level of Patient-Specific Treatment Recommendations in Clinical Practice Guidelines for Hemodialysis Vascular Access in the United States
In the United States, more than 80% of all patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) initiate dialysis with hemodialysis, and current reports indicate that this trend has changed little over the past 2 decades.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death in America, resulting in approximately 610,000 deaths each year. The prevalence of CVD in the United States is increasing.
Influencing Patient Outcomes Through Enhanced Multidisease-Focused Interventions
End-stage renal disease (ESRD), also known as stage 5 kidney disease, is characterized by permanent kidney failure. Currently, more than 678,000 Americans have ESRD, and projections indicate that the population of patients with this disease may exceed 2 million by 2030.
