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.
Some researches revealed that mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with various kidney injury. However, the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in the pathogenesis of acute kidney injury (AKI) still needs evidence.
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 intraoperative hypotension and acute kidney injury.
Medications are a relatively common cause of acute kidney injury (AKI), especially in hospitalized patients who are exposed to numerous agents. Drug-related acute tubular/tubulointerstitial injury is the most common cause of AKI associated with these agents. Toxic effects of drugs and their renal handling often lead to various forms of AKI.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) in pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) children may be associated with long-term chronic kidney disease or hypertension.
Differentiating etiologies of acute kidney injury (AKI) is critical in determining the course of care in clinical practice. For example, acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) requires withdrawal of the offending drug and immunosuppressive therapy, while acute tubular injury (ATI) does not have any disease-specific therapies. Failure to distinguish AIN from ATI in a timely manner can lead to kidney fibrosis and chronic kidney disease. In this review, we discuss current tests and novel biomarkers to distinguish ...
Acute kidney injury is a common occurrence on the intensive care unit and is associated with incremental risk of death and chronic kidney disease. Renal replacement therapy has become an essential tool in the intensive care management of patients with severe acute kidney injury and its use is rising. A basic understanding of renal replacement therapy is essential for all doctors treating acutely unwell patients. This article provides a brief overview of the principles and important considerations for the pr...
Acute kidney injury with metabolic acidosis is common in critically ill patients. This study assessed the associations between the use of IV sodium bicarbonate and mortality of patients with acute kidney injury and acidosis.
Acute kidney injury is associated with increased postoperative length of hospital stay and increases the risk of postoperative mortality. The association between the development of postoperative acute kidney injury and the implementation of an enhanced recovery after surgery protocol remains unclear.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a complex clinical disorder with sudden decay in renal function. Ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) has been regarded as the main etiology for the occurrence of AKI. MicroRNAs have been consistently shown to be involved AKI.
Acute kidney injury increases the risk of mortality in hospitalized patients. However, incidence of severe acute kidney injury (SAKI) and its association with mortality in civilians with gunshot wounds (GSWs) is not known.
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 the standard of care for acute kidney injury, the optimal timing for initiation is still unknown.
To identify the risk factors for the development of acute kidney injury and for short and long-term mortality of patients with acute kidney injury after admission to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
The aim of the study was to determin the incidence, severity and prognostic significance of acute kidney injury (AKI) in elderly patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). 122 older patients (≥60 years) with community-acquired pneumonia were examined. Acute kidney injury was diagnosed in 49 (40,2%) patients including 47 (95,9%) patients with AKI occurring prehospital. In patients with community-acquired pneumonia associated with acute kidney injury the clinical picture of AKI was harder. Also distu...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) and intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) are common in premature infants. We previously demonstrated that infants with AKI have a higher hazards ratio to develop grade ≥2 IVH when controlling for confounders. However, that single-center study was unable to show an overall association.
Serum creatinine and urine output continue to be the mainstays of diagnosis of acute kidney injury, though both of these measures have significant limitations, especially in acutely hospitalized patients. Biomarkers in both blood and urine have been studied extensively in the research setting and are on the verge of clinical practice to improve diagnosis of AKI.
The effects of hourly differences in temperature on the risk of acute kidney injury have not been investigated so far. This study aimed to examine a very short-term effect of heat on the risk of acute kidney injury at an hourly level and assessed potential modification effects by age, gender and preexisting diseases.
Acute kidney injury is a common complication after cardiac surgery, with a high impact on morbidity and mortality. Vascular adhesion protein-1 is involved in inflammation, which, in turn, is part of the development of acute kidney injury after cardiac surgery.
Acute kidney injury affects nearly 30% of preterm neonates in the intensive care unit. We aimed to determine whether nephrotoxin-induced AKI disrupted renal development assessed by imaging (CFE-MRI).
Acute kidney injury in hospital patients is common and associated with reduced survival and higher healthcare costs. The Tackling Acute Kidney Injury (TAKI) quality improvement project aimed to reduce mortality rates in patients with acute kidney injury by implementing a multicomponent intervention comprising of an electronic alert, care bundle and education in five UK hospitals across a variety of wards. A parallel developmental evaluation using a case study approach was conducted to provide the implementa...
Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2is) represent a new class of oral hypoglycemic agents used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. They have a positive effect on the progression of chronic kidney disease, but there is a concern that they might cause acute kidney injury (AKI).
The incidence of acute kidney injury and the association between acute kidney injury and prognosis have been reported about transcatheter arterial chemoembolization using anthracycline. However, the incidence of acute kidney injury after platinum-based transarterial chemoembolization or transarterial infusion chemotherapy remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate association between acute kidney injury after platinum-based transcatheter arterial chemoembolization/transarterial infusion chemo...
Introduction: Hypertension is an overwhelming finding in chronic kidney disease (CKD), but data on hypertension prevalence in acute kidney injury (AKI) are scarce. The aim: The study aimed to assess the prevalence of hypertension in patients with AKI regarding its cause: prerenal, renal, or postrenal..
Acute kidney injury (AKI) was found to be associated with an increased risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in the general population. Patients after kidney transplantation are prone to AKI events and are also at an increased risk of cardiovascular (CV) disease. The association between AKI and MACE in kidney transplant patients is yet to be studied.
To evaluate the nephro-protective effects of berberine and/or pentoxifylline on the reduction of diclofenac-induced acute kidney injury in rats.
