Is there any data supporting the use of preoperative dialysis in an ESRD patient undergoing elective hip surgery? Do these patients have lower post-op mortality if they receive HD just before their operation?

In ESRD patients undergoing •cardiac surgery•, there is data (retrospective) to perform pre-op dialysis to lower days in ICU, for example.

What's the harm in giving pre-operative dialysis?

The harm would be minimal in an established ESRD patient other than the general risks for undergoing hemodialysis.

The risks would be different, of course, if the patient were not yet HD-dependent.
