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 presentation (emergency department and intensive care unit) for TIMP2xIGFBP7. In case of elevated readings patients will be randomized in two arms: The control group will be treated with standard care, the intervention group will receive an early nephrologic consultation.
This study examines the impact of an early biomarker-guided intervention on the development of acute kidney injury (AKI). New biomarkers indicate kidney damage in an early stage before developing acute kidney injury according to AKI Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) Definition is detectable. The investigators want to test if it's possible to prevent AKI based on elevated urinary biomarkers. Eligible patients will be randomly assigned to two groups, a control and an intervention Group by an early nephrologic consultation. The interventional group will receive an early preventive nephrologist consultation additionally to standard care.

Few studies analyzed the referral time to nephrologists and its impact on the patient outcome in a large cohort. The investigators described the incidence and determined the outcome with r...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication of both cardiac and major non-cardiac surgery. AKI is independently associated with morbidity, mortality, and long-term adverse events including ch...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) usually occurring early post-transplant. Multiple causes include graft preservation injury, blood loss, hypotension but...
Little is known about the incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI), as defined using the Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcome (KDIGO) classification, after heart transplantation (HT).

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 form of ischemia-reperfusion injury occurring in the early period following transplantation. Significant pathophysiological changes in MITOCHONDRIA are the main cause of the dysfunction. It is most often seen in the transplanted lung, liver, or kidney and can lead to GRAFT REJECTION.
An early local inflammatory reaction to insult or injury that consists of fever, an increase in inflammatory humoral factors, and an increased synthesis by hepatocytes of a number of proteins or glycoproteins usually found in the plasma.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
