About 10 to 13 percent of the world population is affected by chronic kidney disease ranging from Stage CKD 1 up to Stage CKD 5. Stage CKD 5 is defined as kidney failure or end-stage-renal-disease (ESRD) and requires renal replacement therapy (RRT). About 0.1 percent of the worldwide population are affected by ESRD.
Hemodialysis is a modality of renal replacement therapy and is used for end-stage-renal-disease as well as for acute kidney injury (AKI). Hemodialysis is the most widely used form of renal replacement therapy for end-stage-renal-disease.
