Urologic-nephrological Care of Chronic Kidney Disease in Saxony-Anhalt/Magdeburg.
Laboratory Database-based Analysis of the Interdisciplinary Urologic-nephrological Care of the Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) With Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) Under 60 ml/Min of the Population in Saxony-Anhalt / Metropolitan Area Magdeburg.
Patients with Chronic kidney disease (CKD) with an estimated glomerular filtration rate
(eGFR) under 60 ml/min using the MDRD-6 (Modification of Diet in Renal Disease) formula
and/or CKD-EPI (Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration) formula should undergo
nephrological and urological care (diagnosis and treatment) to prevent chronic kidney
failure. This is recommended by the National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcomes
Quality Initiative (KDOQI), Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) and European
Urological Association (EAU). Renal and postrenal diseases can cause or worsen CKD.
Internistic and intrarenal diseases can caused or worsen CKD. All diseases affecting CKD
should be treated and the medical care should be optimized.
Not all patients with CKD receive urological and nephrological care. Interdisciplinary work
of outpatient working urologists and nephrologists in the metropolitan area Magdeburg /
Saxony-Anhalt Germany is unknown. An descriptive analysis of interdisciplinary treatment
connection of CKD patients for an orientating statement is needed.
The Medical Laboratory Schenk-Ansorge Magdeburg Saxony-Anhalt Germany receives all blood
samples of outpatient patients of the medical practices of the metropolitan area Magdeburg
Saxony-Anhalt Germany. Every patient has a lifetime identification number Independent of the
submitting practice. Every submitting medical doctor has a lifetime identification number
and is identified by her/his medical subject /specialization. This analysis is based on that
laboratory database. For that study a cohort of 1.031.336 patients from 12/2004 to 08/2014
is evaluated, that had been received blood tests with measurement of serum creatinine. For
every serum creatinine an eGGR is calculated with the guideline recommended formula.
