ORTEGA PEREZ DE VILLAR, Lucía et al. Quantification of functional impairment for six months in hemodialysis patients. Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2015, vol.18, n.4, pp.265-271. ISSN 2255-3517.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S2254-28842015000400004.

Introduction: Patients in dialysis treatment present a decrease in physical function. However, we cannot find in the literature the rhythm of the functional deterioration. The main aim is quantify the functional deterioration in patients undergoing haemodialysis during six months period. Methods: 43 patients in dialysis treatment from two centres from Valencia (Spain) (age 61.3 (14.7) years old) were recruited and monitored after the 6 months period. Study participants performed the Short Physical Performance Battery, one leg stand, TUG, Sit to Stand 10 and 60, handgrip dynamometry, the one leg heel rise and the 6 minutes walking time. Outcomes: Three tests improve significantly: the Sit to Stand 10, the right and the left Handgrip Dynamometry. Nevertheless, we cannot observe a significant deterioration as the Short Physical Performance Battery, the Sit to Stand 60, the one leg heel rise in the left leg and the 6 minutes walking time. Conclusions: After 6 months, we have not observed a significant deterioration in the tests. We recommended the different units to follow the functional capacity of the patients yearly, because with a period of 6 months we have not find significantly changes.
