A specially designed questionnaire was used to explore the predominant trends of pre-end stage renal failure in Egypt. A random sample of 47 physicians dealing with such patients was chosen to fill the questionnaire during a recent scientific gathering. They were of different ages, qualifications, years of experience and health-care disciplines. Collected data were entered into a computer database and subjected to statistical analysis and correlation with relevant physicians backgrounds. The study shows that the Egyptian trends are generally conforming to respective international recommendations; major deviations being largely the result of economical shortcomings. There was no significant impact of physician-related factors on patient management trends.
