Acute kidney injury requiring dialysis (AKI-D) is associated with high mortality. Information about its epidemiology is nonetheless sparse in some countries. The objective of this study was to assess its epidemiology and prognosis in metropolitan France.

Name: PloS one
To characterize volatile organic compounds in breath exhaled by ventilated care patients with acute kidney injury and changes over time during dialysis.
Cisplatin is an effective chemotherapeutic agent. However, acute kidney injury (AKI) and subsequent kidney function decline limits its use. Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor has been reported t...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) treatment. The aim of this study was to elucidate the long-term outcomes of adult patients with AKI who...
Backgrounds/Objectives: Elevated erythropoietin (EPO) is observed in human acute kidney injury (AKI). Whether blood EPO level is associated with mortality or other organ dysfunction in critically ill ...
The kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1) has previously been associated with kidney function in rodents and humans. Yet its role as a predictive marker for future decline in kidney function has remained l...
The Recovery After Dialysis-Requiring Acute Kidney Injury (RAD-AKI) Pilot Study is a 2-arm randomized clinical trial of hospitalized patients with dialysis-requiring acute kidney injury (R...
The investigators propose a randomized controlled trial to examine whether tunneled dialysis catheters should be first-line for acute kidney injury requiring renal replacement therapy (AKI...
Acute kidney injury is more frequent and the mortality rate would be as high as 50-60% when the renal replacement therapy was needed. Many studies about the timing of start and discontinua...
Increased in-hospital mortality associated with weekend admission has been reported for many acute conditions, but no study has investigated "weekend effect" for acute kidney injury requir...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent clinical condition in hospitalized, in particular, in critically ill children. Moreover, AKI is an independent predictor of mortality. An incidence ...
Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.
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.
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Artificially produced membranes, such as semipermeable membranes used in artificial kidney dialysis (RENAL DIALYSIS), monomolecular and bimolecular membranes used as models to simulate biological CELL MEMBRANES. These membranes are also used in the process of GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION.
The compulsory portion of Medicare that is known as the Hospital Insurance Program. All persons 65 years and older who are entitled to benefits under the Old Age, Survivors, Disability and Health Insurance Program or railroad retirement, persons under the age of 65 who have been eligible for disability for more than two years, and insured workers (and their dependents) requiring renal dialysis or kidney transplantation are automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
