Background: The question of which dialysis modality should be recommended to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients with a history of coronary artery disease (CAD) is encountered frequently in clinical practice, and the answer is still controversial. We tried to explore the patient’s survival difference by the dialysis modality in incident ESRD patients with CAD.

Methods: We retrospectively analyzed survival differences by dialysis modality in 56 new ESRD patients with preexisting CAD (HD:PD=30:26) at yearly intervals with Poisson regression from September 1994 to February 2000. We also investigated the predictors of mortality with multivariate analysis by time-dependent Cox regression.

Results: There were no significant differences in age, sex, diabetes, co-morbidity, severity of CAD on commencement of dialysis between HD and PD patients with CAD. Cardiovascular deaths were observed in only HD group. In the CAD group, the relative risk (RR) of mortality in HD patients was equal or higher than that in PD patients for the first 3 years, but RR became lower in HD patient after 3 years. The significant predictors of mortality in CAD group were age, diabetes, arrhythmia and history of cardiac arrest at the time of dialysis initiation.

Conclusion: When we choose a dialysis modality in incident ESRD patient with preexisting CAD, we could consider an early survival benefit of PD over HD and integrated dialysis approach as a treatment option in this patient group. Further investigation including control group is needed to evaluate in the multicenter, large-scaled manner.
