Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


A register-based, matced cohort-study of fracture rates in End-stage-renal-disease patients in Denmark, from 1995-2013.
Data will be extracted from the registry of the Danish Society of Nephrology, containing information on all patients receiving dialysis for more then 3 months in Denmark, as well as all patients receiving a renal transplant. This cohort will be matched 1:10 on age and gender, with the Danish background population. For both cohorts, diagnoses on fractures will be drawn from the National Registry of Patients.
We will investigate fracture-rates from 1995 to 2013, look at development over time, and possible differences across regions in Denmark.
