Improving Clinical Prediction Rules In Acute Kidney Injury With The Use of Biomarkers of Cell Cycle Arrest: A Pilot Study.
INTRODUCTION: Early recognition of patients developing acute kidney injury is of considerable interest, we report the first use of a combination of a clinical prediction rule with a biomarker in emergent adult medical ...
The Role of Risk Prediction Models in Prevention and Management of AKI.
Acute kidney injury is a major health care problem. Improving recognition of those at risk and highlighting those who have developed AKI at an earlier stage remains a priority for research and clinical practice. Prediction ...
Long-Term Outcomes in Patients with Acute Kidney Injury.
The long-term sequelae of AKI have received increasing attention so that its associations with a number of adverse outcomes, including higher mortality and development of CKD, are now widely appreciated. These associations ...
Three-year outcomes after acute kidney injury: results of a prospective parallel group cohort study.
OBJECTIVES: Using a prospective study design, we aimed to characterise the effect of acute kidney injury (AKI) on long-term changes in renal function in a general hospital population. PARTICIPANTS: Hospitalised patients ...
Predicting and managing complications of renal replacement therapy in the critically ill.
Renal replacement therapy (RRT) remains associated with a significant risk of serious complications, and critically ill patients requiring RRT continue to manifest particularly poor overall survival rates. These poor ...
International Criteria for Acute Kidney Injury: Advantages and Remaining Challenges.
Nicholas Selby and colleagues describe how the definition of acute kidney injury brings opportunities and challenges in identifying patients at higher risk of adverse outcomes.
Regional Variation in Acute Kidney Injury Requiring Dialysis in the English National Health Service from 2000 to 2015 - A National Epidemiological Study.
BACKGROUND: The absence of effective interventions in presence of increasing national incidence and case-fatality in acute kidney injury requiring dialysis (AKI-D) warrants a study of regional variation to explore any ...
Risk of statin-induced rhabdomyolysis in patients with hepatic impairment.
We describe a case of a 54-year-old man with a 2-month history of biliary colic associated with a common bile duct stone. He underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy and developed postoperative acute kidney injury stage 3. ...
Acute kidney injury is independently associated with death in patients with cirrhosis
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Current creatine-based criteria for defining acute kidney injury (AKI) are validated in general hospitalised patients but their application to cirrhotics (who are younger and have reduced muscle mass) ...
