BEGUE DALMAU, Nuris de las Mercedes et al. Characterization of patients with hepatitis B and C in hemodialysis. MEDISAN [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.2, pp.161-167. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 27 patients with hepatitis B and C, admitted to the Hemodialysis Service of "Juan B. Viñas González" Teaching General Hospital in Palma Soriano, Santiago de Cuba, was carried out from April, 2011 to the same month in 2015, aimed at characterizing them according to selected variables. In the case material, those affected with hepatitis C, the 60 and more age group, the male sex, as well as the high blood pressure and diabetic renal disease as fundamental causes of chronic kidney failure, prevailed. The time in hemodialysis had a directly proportional relationship with the number of infected patients, who presented more than double the normal value of the enzymatic activity for glutamic pyruvic transaminase. It is concluded that the infection for the hepatitis C virus was more significant in those exposed under a longer time to the hemodialysis treatment
