The registry is in close collaboration with international registries. In this paper data from the 2009 registry report are summarized, additionally yearly trends in the management of end stage renal disease are also provided The number of patients on renal replacement therapy is rapidly increasing, at the end of 2009, 59443 patients were on renal replacement therapy. The prevalence and incidence of end stage renal disease was 819 and 197 per million population respectively. Diabetes was the most important cause of end stage renal disease. Hemodialysis (78.5%) was the most common type of treatment modality, followed by transplantation (12.4%) and peritoneal dialysis (9.1%) End stage renal disease is a very important and growing health problem for our country. Renal registry is a leading tool for providing current and sound data on this public health problem.]]> 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 006 2011-01-01 001 Review <![CDATA[Uremic Pruritus: Still Itching]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=780 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 013 2011-01-01 007 Review <![CDATA[New Options for Old Diseases: Aquaretics (Vasopressin Receptor Antagonists)]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=781 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 018 2011-01-01 014 Review <![CDATA[Relationship Between Circadian Rhythm of Blood Pressure and Bone Mineral Density in Postmenopausal Women]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=782 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 025 2011-01-01 019 Original Article <![CDATA[Effects of Biocompatible Solutions on Residual Renal Functions in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients: A Prospective Observational Study]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=783 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 031 2011-01-01 026 Original Article <![CDATA[Relation Between Circadian Rhythm of Blood Pressure and Serum Uric Acid and Body Mass Index]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=784 2 vs. 27.8±3.9kg/m 2 , p=0.01).

RESULTS: Exposure to E. coli causes bacterial peritonitis with increase in peritoneal permeability leading to rapid dissipation of the glucose gradient and UF failure. IP administration of OCT led to attenuation of UF failure by inhibiting local TGF-β 1 production. Both local and systemic administration of OCT decreased dialysate cell count and maintained UF. CONCLUSION: Local or systemic OCT administration may help to preserve peritoneal viability and UF capacity by inhibiting cell infiltration to the peritoneal cavity and decreasing dialysate cell count during peritonitis. In the long-term, it can decrease peritoneal fibrosis.]]> 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 052 2011-01-01 046 Original Article <![CDATA[Efficacy of Tacrolimus in Patients with Primary Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis Resistant to Immunosuppressive Treatments]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=787 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 057 2011-01-01 053 Original Article <![CDATA[Association Between Asymmetric Dimethylarginine and the Severity of Coronary Artery Disease in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=788 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 064 2011-01-01 058 Original Article <![CDATA[Intravenous Iron Treatment in Patients with Chronic Renal Disease, Oxidative Stress and the Effect of N-acetylcysteine]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=789 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 071 2011-01-01 065 Original Article <![CDATA[Comparison of Hospitalization and Survival Between Patients Treated With Renal Replacement Therapy]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=790 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 076 2011-01-01 072 Original Article <![CDATA[De-Novo anti-HLA Antibodies After Renal Transplantation: Prevalance and Risk Factors]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=791 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 082 2011-01-01 077 Original Article <![CDATA[The Effect of the Use of Ureteric Stents on Urological Complications in Selected Kidney Transplant Cases]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=792 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 087 2011-01-01 083 Original Article <![CDATA[Successful Treatment of Deep Cutaneous Zygomycosis Developing Early After Renal Transplantation]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=793 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 092 2011-01-01 088 Case Report <![CDATA[Methotrexate-induced Pancytopenia in Two Patients with Renal Dysfunction]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=794 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 095 2011-01-01 093 Case Report <![CDATA[Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis in a Patient Associated with Kappa-Light Chain Disease]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=795 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 098 2011-01-01 096 Case Report <![CDATA[Polymicrobial Infections in the Early Period of Kidney Transplantation in a Case with Wegener's Granulomatosis]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=796 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 103 2011-01-01 099 Case Report <![CDATA[Development of Reversible Posterior Leukoencephalopathy Syndrome after Cyclophosphamide Treatment in a Patient with Lupus Nephritis]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=797 2011-01-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 1 20 107 2011-01-01 104 Case Report
