Abstract
Introduction: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) prevalence is increasing among elderly
populations. Cognitive functions impairment has been considered as a complication of hemodialysis.
Objective: Our aim was to assess the relation between cognitive impairment and prevalent hemodialysis to
determine possible risk factors.
Methods: A cross-sectional study conducted on 60 elderly patients. 30 patients were ESRD under regular
hemodialysis, considered as cases, they were assessed at baseline, after 6 and after 12 months. Other 30
patients were Chronic Kidney Diseases (CKD), not on hemodialysis, considered as controls, they were
assessed at baseline only. Cognitive functions assessment was done using Mini Mental State examination
and Montreal Cognitive assessment.
Results: As regard cases, the mean score of MMSE was 21.000 at baseline, 20.133 after 6 months and
19.600 after 12 months and the mean score of MoCA was 21.433 at baseline, 21.233, after 6 months and
20.567 after 12 months. As regard controls, the mean score of MMSE was 23.733 and mean score of
MoCA was 23.567 at baseline. Statistically differences among cases and controls were significantly
regarded to MMSE (P value 0.044) &MoCA (P value 0.036). Cognitive functions were decreased in
hemodialysis group during one year follow up. Similarly, statistical differences among cases and controls
regard to Ankle brachial index (ABI) were significantly affected (P value 0.019).
Conclusion: Cognitive impairment was prominent and underdiagnosed in hemodialysis patients.

Key words: Cognitive functions, Hemodialysis, Kidney disease, Elderly
