The aim of this study is to assess the mortality causes in dialysis in the Piedmont Region, using the data of the Dialysis and Transplantation Register (DTR). Data of a 15-year use of the DTR regarding 5519 hospital dialysis admissions were considered. Mortality seems to be particularly due to cardiac causes analyzing, also the incidence of other causes of death such as: cachexia, sudden death and infection causes.
