Serum creatinine levels in the post-resuscitative state have been associated with poor prognosis for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Several studies have focused on kidney dysfunction in the general population, and the results suggested that serum creatinine level elevation or reduction of the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) are associated with increased risk of death and cardiovascular events. However, it is uncertain whether the serum creatinine levels or eGFR of OHCA patients are related to the incidence of OHCA. The aim of this study was to determine the association between eGFR and the incidence of OHCA.

Our objective of this study was to determine if rate of eGFR decline and its intensity was associated with cardiovascular risk and death in hypertensive patients whose baseline estimated glomerular fi...
Our previous study demonstrated that the cystatin C-based chronic kidney disease (CKD)-EPI equation and combined by serum creatinine (CKD-EPIscr-cys) had better capability to accurately evaluate glome...
We investigated the association of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) with Framingham risk score (FRS), and actual cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). We als...
People living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection have higher risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD), defined by a reduced estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Previous studies ha...
Glomerular filtration rate estimating equations using serum creatinine are not validated in most African settings. We compared serum creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in HIV p...
Estimated glomerular filtration rate(eGFR) is significantly reduced in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The aim of this study is to research that the incid...
The timing for arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation and its effect on target organs in patients with chronic renal failure will be investigated by multicenter prospective cohort. Lower est...
Centres: Three university hospitals and the primary care centres in their area in Madrid (Clínico San Carlos, La Paz, 12 de Octubre) Type of study: Randomized, multicentric, placebo-contr...
This is a pilot study using a randomized, double blinded, comparison of two iodinated contrast agents used during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). All patients enrolled must have ...
Several studies have investigated an association between cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) and albuminuria, glomerular filtration rate, or both, and hypothesized that CAN is involved in t...
A specialized barrier in the kidney, consisting of the fenestrated CAPILLARY ENDOTHELIUM; GLOMERULAR BASEMENT MEMBRANE; and glomerular epithelium (PODOCYTES). The barrier prevents the filtration of PLASMA PROTEINS.
The volume of water filtered out of plasma through glomerular capillary walls into Bowman's capsules per unit of time. It is considered to be equivalent to INULIN clearance.
A clinicopathological syndrome or diagnostic term for a type of glomerular injury that has multiple causes, primary or secondary. Clinical features include PROTEINURIA, reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE, and EDEMA. Kidney biopsy initially indicates focal segmental glomerular consolidation (hyalinosis) or scarring which can progress to globally sclerotic glomeruli leading to eventual KIDNEY FAILURE.
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.
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).
