CUEVAS BUDHART, Miguel Ángel et al. Factors associated with the development of adverse events in hemodialysis patients in Guerrero, Mexico. Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.1, pp.42-50. ISSN 2255-3517.


To determine the most prevalent adverse events and the risk factors associated in the patient undergoing hemodialysis in the state of Guerrero, Mexico.

Material and Method:

Observational, longitudinal, retrospective study in 157 hemodialysis patients affiliated to the Mexican Institute of Social Security in Guerrero, assisted in 5 private and 2 public units. Socio-demographic variables, laboratory measurements, evolution of the disease, complications of the disease and dialysis treatment were collected.


Adverse events occurred in 73% of the studied population, the main etiological cause was Diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2) and arterial hypertension. The most frequent adverse events were: hypotension (35.5%) angioaccess infection (24.0%), headache (22.3%), hypertensive crisis (14.5%), dizziness (9.9%), chills (9.9%), and thrombosis of arteriovenous fistula (9.9%). The associated risk factors: patients over 65, (OR=6.859, 95% CI:1.55-30.35) being obese, (OR=1.70, 95% CI: 1.60-4.81), and hypoalbuminemia (OR=0.251, 95% CI:0.160-0.593).


Patients over 65, obese, with diastolic hypertension and hypoalbuminemia are more likely to develop adverse events during the hemodialysis.
