Özet

Aims of the study. - Nervous involvement is frequent in patients with renal failure. Early recognition of the condition by electrophysiological tests may provide means for protective measures before irreversible damage of nervous system (NS) structures takes place. This study has two objectives: (1) examining whether pattern-reversal visual evoked potential (PR-VEP) studies may provide information relating to possible subclinical NS involvement in pediatric patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) and (2) looking for a possible relationship between serum parathormone (PTH) and creatinine levels and PR-VEP parameters.
