Core tip: In order to prevent the occurrence of distal hypoperfusion syndrome, is important identification of risk factors. Problem is the absence of objective indicators of distal ischemia, which is main reason why large proportion our patients have of this symptoms. Our patients with these symptoms were significantly older, which confirms older age as a factor that characterizes patients with distal hypoperfusion syndrome. We have confirmed greater incidence of diabetes mellitus and smokers among the patients with distal hypoperfusion syndrome. Quality of dialysis, diabetes mellitus, erythropoietin therapy, smokers and hemodiafiltration has predictive value for survival of patients with distal ischemia.
