Abstract: 

Introduction. Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events are the most common causes of mortality in CAPD patients. In this study, we compare the factors that potentially could affect on this process.
Methods. Between January 1995 and December 2006, from 26 PD centers, data on 1472 patients including demographic, clinical and laboratory characteristics, which were monthly collected through questionnaires were entered in “Hakim” (a Farsi database) and analyzed using STATA (9.0). In the present study, we compare cardiovascular (CV) causes of mortality and deaths unrelated to CV causes of the patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). At the end of study, cardiac (MI) and cerebrovascular (CVA) deaths occurred in 80 patients (average age, 58.5 years; 39 men). Deaths due to other causes and all alive patients were 1183 (average age, 45.7 years; 489 men).
Results. Uni-variate analysis of values for P, Alb, FBS, diastolic BP, Cr, n PCR, iPTH, andHb shows that all were statistically different between the 2 groups. We also used Cox hazard analysis to examine values for Ca, P, Ca × P, intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH), and lipids. None of these values were independent contributory factors for incidence of cardiovascular mortality but age (P < 0.01), nurse evaluations scores (NES) of the patients before start of CAPD (P < 0.04), BMI (P < 0.01), CHF (P < 0.003), negative selection of the patients for CAPD (P < 0.02), and low serum albumin (P < 0.02) had all contributory effects on CV mortality.
Conclusion. In conclusion, CV causes of mortality are responsible for most death causes in CAPD patients. Some above-mentioned factors are statistically important related factors to death du to CV causes, but some conventionally risk factors such as hyperlipedimia had not statistically differ between the two groups.
