Background: Thrombophilia due to protein C (PC) and protein S (PS) deficiencies is highly prevalent among patients with stage 5 chronic kidney disease and is reported to arise due to extracorporeal circulation during hemodialysis (HD). This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between HD treatment and thrombophilia.

This study suggests that some patients undergoing dialysis treatment for kidney disease are more susceptible to thrombosis. The researchers confirmed that the patients in the study did not have a hereditary cause of protein deficiency. However those that had acquired a protein deficiency also had reduced survival rates.
