A clinical score to predict 6-month prognosis in elderly patients starting dialysis for end-stage renal disease.

Abstract : This simple clinical score effectively predicts short-term prognosis among elderly patients starting dialysis. It should help to illuminate clinical decision making, but cannot be used to withhold dialysis. It ought to only be used by nephrologists to facilitate the discussion with the patients and their families.
