Comparative cost-eectiveness study among dierent renal replacement techniques
Introduction: The NRF is the organization nancing in Uruguay the treatment of the three renal replacement techniques (RRT): kidney transplantation (TxR), peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD). No previous studies have been performed in Uruguay. Objective: Assess and compare the magnitude of expenses and cost-efectiveness among the RRTs. Table 1. MEAN COST-EFFECTIVENESS RATIO ANALYSIS Methods: Retrospective cohort study of the three techniques in year 2005 incident patients. The “end point” studied was death for dialysis and graft survival for TxR. All healthcare costs were estimated in US dollars per patient, per year and per technique by information provided by the NRF. A Kaplan Meier Survival Analysis and mean cost-eectiveness ratio analysis were made. Subpopulations waiting for TxR in this period were compared to transplantation patients.
