Acute kidney injury (AKI) is often underdiagnosed due to several limitations of the renal marker creatinine. Tubular urinary biomarkers may substantially contribute to diagnose acute kidney injury AKI early.

Among patients who had acute kidney injury (AKI) during hospitalization, there is a need to improve risk prediction such that those at highest risk for subsequent loss of kidney function are identifie...
Acute kidney injury is associated with high mortality, and is the most frequent complication encountered in patients residing in the intensive care unit. Although renal replacement therapy (RRT) is th...
To investigate the changes of serum cystatin C (Cys-C), beta 2-microglobulin (β2-MG), urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and alpha 1-microglobulin (α1-MG) in asphyxiated neona...
Acute kidney injury occurs in 13% of patients undergoing major surgery and is associated with a six-fold increased risk of mortality.Single-center studies have demonstrated an association between intr...
Reduced kidney function, whether acute or chronic, is a highly significant biomarker of in most clinical settings. This is particularly true on the acute medical take where altered renal function is a...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common in children after cardiac surgery with a reported incidence of 20-40%. Pediatric AKI has been found to be associated with important short and long-term ...
The investigators intend to study 2 new methods for the early detection of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) after cardiac surgery and compare and combine the predictive abilities of these methods...
This study examines the clinical relevance of early biomarkers to detect and prevent acute kidney injury. High-risk patients for developing acute kidney injury will be screened at initial ...
The following objectives were used for comparison: 1)primary objective: Evaluate the urinary excretion of NGAL as a marker of early development of acute kidney injury in patients undergoin...

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.
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.
A small cytosolic fatty-acid binding protein that forms a lipid-binding beta-barrel structure and is expressed by CARDIOMYOCYTES and at lower levels in brain tissue. It is released into plasma immediately following cardiac injury and may therefore serve as a useful biomarker for the early detection of MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
A rare but serious transfusion-related reaction in which fluid builds up in the lungs unrelated to excessively high infusion rate and/or volume (TRANSFUSION-ASSOCIATED CIRCULATORY OVERLOAD). Signs of Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury include pulmonary secretions; hypotension; fever; DYSPNEA; TACHYPNEA; TACHYCARDIA; and CYANOSIS.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
