Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
Renal Insufficiency, Acute
Conditions in which the function of KIDNEYS deteriorates suddenly in a matter of days or even hours. It is characterized by the sudden drop in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE; (GMR). The most severe stage is when the GFR drops below 15 ml per min (ACUTE KIDNEY FAILURE).
Kidney Failure, Acute
A severe stage of acute renal insufficiency, characterized by the sudden decrease in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min, sometime to less than 1 to 2 ml per min. It is usually associated with OLIGURIA; EDEMA; and increase in BLOOD UREA NITROGEN and serum CREATININE concentrations.
Kidney Tubular Necrosis, Acute
Acute kidney failure resulting from destruction of EPITHELIAL CELLS of the KIDNEY TUBULES. It is commonly attributed to exposure to toxic agents or renal ISCHEMIA following severe TRAUMA.
This study seeks to determine if increasing the dose of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) reduces 90-day all cause mortality in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients with severe acu...
This multicentre SHARF4 (Stuivenberg Hospital Acute Renal Failure) study aims to investigate outcome in patients with acute renal failure (ARF), stratified according to severity of disease...
The purpose of the study is to compare the effect of fenoldopam and ketanserin on kidney function preservation in patients at high risk for renal failure after cardiac surgery. Acute, olig...
We hypothesize that a nutritional supplementation with higher than standard protein content (2.0 gm/Kg/day vs 1.4 gm/Kg/day) will result in improved whole-body net protein balance when adm...
This is a multi-center, prospective, randomized, parallel-group trial of an intensive strategy vs conventional strategy of renal replacement therapy for the treatment of acute renal failur...
Objectives: The purpose of the study was to calculate the incidence of the acute flank pain syndrome in Iceland and to describe the case series. Material and methods: The hospital records of those who...
OBJECTIVE: Acute renal failure after valve surgery carries significant morbidity and mortality. Preoperative cardiac catheterization is the standard of care. For convenience, catheterization just befo...
We report the case of a 12 year-old girl who presented with acute renal failure with massive infiltration in both kidneys due to a Burkitt lymphoma that was diagnosed by percutaneous renal biopsy. Thi...
This report describes a patient presenting with recurrent acute renal failure occurring in the course of POEMS syndrome, a multisystem disease associated with plasma cell dyscrasia. Several combined i...
Background: Galectin 3 (G3) is a mediator of fibrosis and remodeling in heart failure. Methods: Patients diagnosed with and treated for Acute Heart Failure Syndromes were prospectively enrolled in the...
