    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    The purpose of this study was to assess agreement on cause of death reporting in end-stage renal disease patients by comparing death certificates and reports to an end-stage renal disease registrery.

    Methods

    Death certificates and registry reporting forms were retrieved for a random sample of 335 treated end-stage renal disease patients who died between 1980 and 1986 in Maryland.

    On the registry form, patient death was ascribed to 1 of 22 precoded causes by the patient's nephrologist of record.

    Corresponding death certificates were coded, according to rules of the International Classification of Diseases, 9th edition, by a trained observer unaware of the registry report.
