Abstract

Recent technologic and therapeutic advances have improved the life of the patient with end-stage renal disease. High efficiency and high-flux hemodialyzer membranes have shortened the time required to dialyze, and recombinant erythropoietin has all but eliminated anemia as a major cause of morbidity, but the problem of renal osteodystrophy remains. The following discussion examines the spectrum of bone and joint disease in the patient with end-stage renal disease. The diagnostic and therapeutic strategies currently being tried in the management of these disorders are discussed.
