MDTR Profile

The Dialysis and Transplant Registry was established by the Department of Nephrology, Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) in 1992 to collect data from patients on renal replacement therapy within the Ministry of Health (MOH). In order to expand coverage to include non-MOH patients so that the registry may truly claim to be a national one, the ownership was transferred to the Malaysian Society of Nephrology. It was subsequently named Malaysian Dialysis and Transplant Registry (MDTR). MDTR collects information on patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) on renal replacement therapy (RRT) in Malaysia.
