Upper digestive tract manifestations inCRF patients on dialysis

, , , , , and


Background: CRF patients are prone to a wide range of complications: gastroesophageal reflux disease, esophagitis, gastropathy, gastritis and duodenitis, gastric and duodenal ulcer, angiodysplasia.

Objectives: the study’s aim was to highlight the gastro-duodenal symptoms, the frequency of pathological modifi cations of eso-gastro-duodenal mucous membrane and the presence of H.pylori in CRF children receiving dialysis.

Material and methods: the study included 55 children admitted to the IVth Pediatric Nephrology Clinic of the Emergency Clinical Hospital “Sf Maria” Iasi, all receiving dialysis, to which was applied a systematized protocol: objective and subjective symptoms and the results of upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. The study included patients with mucosal changes detected endoscopically.

Conclusions: Pathological modifications of the upper digestive tract mucous membrane in children on chronic dialysis are inconstant, suggesting the need for endoscopy in each case. H.pylori was found in 24/55 (43.63%) biopsies and points out the relatively frequent association between gastro-duodenal lesions and H.pylori in chronic dialysis patient.

Key words: esophagitis, gastritis, H.pylori, dialysis
