Acute kidney injury (AKI)occur 7.7-42% after cardiac surgery. The incidence of AKI requiring renal replacement therapy following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery was 0.7-3.5% and increase mortality rate. Erythropoietin (EPO) is now considered a novel anti-apoptotic and anti-inflammatory action. The present study was designed to evaluate the administration of EPO as a means of preventing AKI in these patients.

The purpose of this study is to compare the hemoglobin and hematocrit variability between once and three times weekly erythropoietin therapy for the anemia in patients with maintenance dia...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of erythropoietin when used in high dose during acute kidney injury can decrease the number of days of kidney injury.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety of Beta-hCG + Erythropoietin in patients with acute ischemic stroke.
Randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, prospective trial investigating the effect of erythropoietin in renal transplantation. The investigators postulate that erythropoietin reduc...
Pilot study aiming to assess the effect of two doses of rhu EPO on urine NGAL concentration and on serum cystatin C and creatinine levels in critically ill patients at risk of ARF.
Acute renal failure in patients with sepsis is associated with high mortality. Studies have highlighted alterations in serum paraoxonase-1 in severe infections. However, the published literature has n...
Renal dysfunction and anaemia are common in patients with acute heart failure (HF). It is not known whether their combined presence has additive prognostic value. We investigated their prognostic valu...
We performed a search in the MEDLINE database using the MeSH term: "Acute Kidney Injury", selecting the subtopic "Epidemiology", and applying age and year of publication filters. We also searched for ...
A healthy young woman comes to admission because of an acute renal failure with hypercalcemia.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) occurs in 6.1%-22.4% of patients undergoing major noncardiac surgery. Previous studies have shown no association between intraoperative urine output and postoperative acute r...
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.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
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).
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.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
