Acute kidney injury (AKI) is associate with high mortality. Despite the evidence of AKI-induced distant organ injury, a relationship between AKI and liver injury has not been clearly established. The goal of this study is to investigate whether renal ischemia-reperfusion (IR) can affect liver pathophysiology. We showed that renal IR in mice induced fatty liver and compromised liver function through the down-regulation of constitutive androstane receptor (CAR; -90.4%) and inhibition of hepatic very low-density lipoprotein-triglyceride (VLDL-TG) secretion (-28...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is one of the most common complications during hospitalization in various clinical settings. The goal of this review was to assess the incidence of AKI in acute myocardial infarction patients (AMI), how this incidence is affected by the diverse definitions, and if there is variability in the reported rates over recent years. Additionally, we sought to appraise the impact of AKI on short- and long-term prognosis of these patients. Finally, we report on the current preventive measures as they are suggested in the current guidelines of various societies, we comment on the evidence that support them, and we review the literature for other proposed therapeutic strategies, which either failed to prove their efficacy or they are not adequately confirmed yet...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have not distinguished between different alcohol-use histories, which could have contributed to the current inconsistent evidence regarding the relationship between alcohol use and subsequent sickness absence. We thus examined alcohol use and subsequent diagnosis-specific sickness absence in groups with different levels of alcohol use, as well as in lifelong abstainers, former drinkers, and people with clinical alcohol use disorders. METHODS: The data of the population-based Health 2000 Survey (BRIF8901) of 3666 Finns aged 30-55 were linked with national registers on medically certified sickness absences lasting for > 10 working days (long-term) for all causes (2000 - 2010) and for mental or musculoskeletal disorders (2004-2010), as well as with registers on pensions and death (2000-2010)...

Objectives: To study the incidence, clinical characteristics, and prognostic impact of acute kidney injury (AKI) in very elderly patients. Methods: The very elderly patients (≥75 years) from the Geriatric Department of the Chinese PLA General Hospital between January 2007 and December 2015 were retrospectively enrolled. AKI was defined according to the 2012 Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) criteria. AKI patients were divided into survivor group and non-survivor group by their outcomes within 90 days after AKI...

BACKGROUND: Ureteral stents are commonly placed before colorectal resection to assist in identification of ureters and prevent injury. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common cause of morbidity and increased cost following colorectal surgery. Although previously associated with reflex anuria, prophylactic stents have not been found to increase AKI. We sought to determine the impact of ureteral stents on the incidence of AKI following colorectal surgery. METHODS: All patients undergoing colon or rectal resection at a single institution between 2005 and 2015 were reviewed using American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program dataset...

BACKGROUND: Dexmedetomidine has been shown to confer direct renoprotection by stabilizing the sympathetic system, exerting anti-inflammatory effects and attenuating ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in preclinical studies. Results from clinical trials of dexmedetomidine on acute kidney injury (AKI) following adult cardiac surgery are controversial. METHODS: We searched EMBASE, PubMed, and Cochrane CENTRAL databases for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the renal effect of dexmedetomidine versus placebo or other anesthetic drugs in adult patients undergoing cardiac surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Ultrasonic tissue characterization of the carotid wall using gray-scale median (GSM) reflects its composition and low-GSM plaque is considered to be unstable. The present study evaluated the effect of alogliptin, a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor, on the longitudinal change in GSM, an index of the tissue characteristics of the carotid wall, in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). METHODS: This is a post hoc subanalysis using data obtained from the SPEAD-A trial, a randomized controlled trial that demonstrated the beneficial effect of alogliptin treatment on the progression of carotid intima-media thickness in patients with T2DM with no past history of apparent cardiovascular disease...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a growing problem with untoward economic and medical consequences. Anticancer drug toxicity remains an important and increasing cause of AKI. Importantly, drug-induced AKI affects all nephron segments-vasculature, glomerulus, tubules, and interstitium. Recent studies have increased insight into the subcellular mechanisms of drug-induced AKI that include direct cellular toxicity and immune-mediated effects. Identification of patients with high-risk cancer before drug exposure may allow prevention or at least a reduction in the development and severity of nephrotoxicity...

Children undergoing cardiac surgery are at risk of developing acute kidney injury (AKI). Preventing cardiac surgery-associated AKI (CS-AKI) is important as it is associated with increased early- and long-term mortality and morbidity. Targeting modifiable risk factors (eg, avoiding poor renal perfusion, nephrotoxic drugs, and fluid overload) reduces the risk of CS-AKI. There is currently no strong evidence for the routine use of pharmacological approaches (eg, aminophylline, dexmedetomidine, fenoldopam, and steroids) to prevent CS-AKI...

RATIONALE: Povidone-iodine is a broad-spectrum antiseptic applied topically to treat wounds and prevent their infection. There have been several case reports of acute kidney injury (AKI) in burn patients after povidone-iodine irrigation and in patients receiving the substance as a sclerotherapy agent for management of lymphocele after renal transplantation. However, biopsy-confirmed AKI after ingestion of povidone-iodine has not previously been described. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 47-year-old man who had apparently ingested povidone-iodine solution and presented with nausea, vomiting, and reduced urine output...

Catestatin, a catecholamine-release inhibitory peptide, has multiple cardiovascular activities. Conflicting results have been recently reported by increased or decreased plasma levels of catestatin in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). However, there have been no previous reports regarding the effects of catestatin on arteriosclerosis. This study evaluated the vasoprotective effects of catestatin on human macrophages, human aortic smooth muscle cells (HASMCs) and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) in vitro, and aortic atherosclerosis and wire injury-induced femoral artery neointimal hyperplasia in apolipoprotein E-deficient (ApoE-/-) mice fed with a high-cholesterol diet...

INTRODUCTION: Patients who develop acute kidney injury (AKI) have an increased risk for progression to chronic kidney disease, end-stage renal disease, and increased mortality. The outcomes of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) patients who develop AKI have remained controversial. The purpose of this review was to summarize and identify the current literature focused on 1) major risk factors, 2) short-term outcomes, and 3) costs associated with the development of perioperative AKI after TKA...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) after major cardiac operations is a potentially avoidable complication associated with increased morbidity, death, and costly long-term treatment. The financial impact of AKI at the population level has not been well defined. We sought to determine the incremental index hospital cost associated with the development of AKI. METHODS: All patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or valve replacement operations, or both (clinical classification software codes 43 and 44), between 2008 and 2011 were identified from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Despite inducing an inflammatory response, Helicobacter pylori can persist in the gastric mucosa for decades. H pylori expression of cholesterol-α-glucosyltransferase (encoded by cgt) is required for gastric colonization and T-cell activation. We investigated how cgt affects gastric epithelial cells and the host immune response. METHODS: MKN45 gastric epithelial cells, AGS cells, and human primary gastric epithelial cells (obtained from patients undergoing gastrectomy or sleeve resection or gastric antral organoids) were incubated with interferon gamma (IFNG) or IFNB and exposed to H pylori, including cagPAI and cgt mutant strains...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is a serious complication. Although nonmodifiable and modifiable risk factors have been thoroughly characterized, the utility of the maximal allowable contrast dose (MACD) has not received adequate attention. The focus of this review is to provide a critical appraisal of this modifiable risk factor. RECENT FINDINGS: Several retrospective and prospective cohort studies have demonstrated that the incidence of CI-AKI among patients receiving contrast media in volumes exceeding the MACD is consistently higher compared with those who do not exceed the MACD (an average of 24 vs...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a treatment option in high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis who are not surgical candidates. In light of emerging evidence, it is being increasingly performed even in intermediate-risk patients in recent years. Patients who develop acute kidney injury (AKI) following TAVR are known to have worse outcomes. The objective of this concise review was to identify the prevalence and the impact of AKI following TAVR on patient outcomes by including the most recent literature in our search...

REVIEW
David M Kwiatkowski, Scott M Sutherland
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is highly prevalent among hospitalized children, especially those who are critically ill. The incorporation of pediatric elements into consensus definitions has led to a greater understanding of pediatric AKI epidemiology, risk factors, and outcomes. The best available data suggest that AKI occurs in 5% and 27% of non-critically ill and critically ill children, respectively. Additionally, AKI and fluid overload are independently associated with worse outcomes including mortality. Currently, the diagnosis of AKI relies upon urine output and creatinine measurements, both of which pose unique problems in children...
