This US study was designed to ascertain whether early initiation of hemodialysis is associated with survival benefit or harm. The results show that in 20-64 year-old patients with ESRD and hypertension alone as a comorbidity, early initiation of hemodialysis (≥15.0 mL/min/1.73 m2) had increased mortality ratio in the first year of dialysis.
