Abstract

Chronic kidney Disease (CKD) is associated with several gastrointestinal diseases, documented with endoscopy. we revisited internation experience about endoscopic pictures in these patients, analyzing only the pre-transplantation period. Gastritis, esophagitis, duodenitis, gastrointestinal bleeding, intestinal ischaemia, angiodysplasia and diverticula are the most common findings, but others are reported too. Every author has different data and percentages, and further studies are necessary to assess the relation between CKD and gastrointestinal diseases. CKD is often part of a multisystem damage, that makes the management of the patinet critical. The aim of this review is to consider patients with CKD as an object of a multidisciplinary team, in order to analyze and prevent all the possible endoscopic-surgical complication, and this can be done with a serial endoscopic follow-up in centers where nephrology, internal medicine and surgery can work in close cooperation.
