Rong Zhang, Wen-Bin Dong
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in the neonatal intensive care unit that causes a high mortality of preterm infants and various chronic kidney diseases in adulthood. Preterm infants have immature development of the kidneys at birth. The kidneys continue to develop within a specific time window after birth. However, due to various factors during pregnancy and after birth, preterm infants tend to develop AKI. At present, serum creatinine and urine volume are used for the assessment of kidney injury, and their early sensitivity and specificity have attracted increasing attention...

Nephrotoxin-induced AKI is an iatrogenic form of AKI that can be potentially avoided or ameliorated by prompt recognition and appropriate prescriber actions. Drug-targeted alerts, either for patients at risk of AKI or patients with existing AKI, may lead to more appropriate drug dosing and management and improved clinical outcomes. However, alerts of this type are complicated to create, have a high potential for error and off-target effects, and may be difficult to evaluate. Although many studies have shown that these alerts can reduce the rate of inappropriate prescribing, few studies have examined the utility of such alerts in terms of patient benefit...

CONTEXT: Patients with craniopharyngioma (CP) and hypothalamic lesions (HL) have cognitive deficits. Which neural pathways are affected is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether there is a relationship between microstructural white matter (WM) alterations detected with diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and cognition in adults with childhood onset CP. DESIGN: A cross-sectional study with a median follow-up time of 22 (6-49) years after operation...

OBJECTIVE: To define those children who develop acute kidney injury (AKI) within 48 h of admission from the emergency department (ED) and ascertain patient-related factors in the ED associated with AKI. METHODS: Retrospective, cohort study of children, birth to 19 years, admitted to a tertiary pediatric hospital from the ED between January 2010 and December 2013 who had serum creatinine (SCr) drawn as part of clinical care. AKI was defined as a 50% increase in SCr above baseline, as measured within 48 h of hospital presentation...

Renal Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury (IRI) is one of the main causes of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), and may lead to chronic kidney disease. The high mortality rate of AKI has not changed in the last 5 decades due to non-recognition, nephrotoxin exposure, delayed diagnosis and lack of specific intervention. Complement activation plays important roles in IRI-induced AKI because of its association with immunity, inflammation, cell death and tissue repair. Nevertheless, the role of complement properdin, the sole positive regulator of the alternative pathway, in IRI-induced AKI has not been well defined...

The recognition of a standardized, consensus definition for acute kidney injury (AKI) has been an important milestone in critical care nephrology, which has facilitated innovation in prevention, quality of care, and outcomes research among the growing population of hospitalized patients susceptible to AKI. Concomitantly, there have been substantial advances in "big data" technologies in medicine, including electronic health records (EHR), data registries and repositories, and data management and analytic methodologies...

The definition of acute kidney injury (AKI) is now well established and encompasses changes in both the urine output and the serum creatinine (SCr) over time. Many studies to date have concentrated solely on the SCr criteria, as this is relatively easy to monitor, given that accurate urine output is rarely measured outside critical care areas. However, many studies have emphasised the inadequacies of SCr in highlighting potential renal injury in a timely fashion. These limitations reflect not only acute changes in creatinine metabolism in the critically ill but also the kinetics of creatinine generation that may hinder early recognition of AKI...

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...

Recovery patterns after acute kidney injury (AKI) have increasingly become the focus of research, because currently available preventive measures and specific therapeutic intervention are limited. Moreover, changes in renal functional reserve are recognized as a "hidden" indicator of kidney susceptibility to either acute kidney injury or chronic kidney disease. Understanding these phenomena and their association with outcome may enable the initiation of strategies that facilitate fast and sustained recovery during the time course of AKI and limit AKI progression towards chronic kidney disease...

Acute kidney injury is common in critically ill patients and portends a significant impact on mortality, progressive chronic kidney disease, and cardiovascular disease and mortality. Though most physicians alter therapy depending on changes in serum creatinine, this often represents delayed intervention. Various AKI biomarkers have been discovered and validated to improve timely detection, differentiation and stratification into risk groups for progressive renal decline, need for renal replacement therapy or death...

Early recognition of acute kidney injury (AKI) is critical to prevent its associated complications as well as its progression to long term adverse outcomes like chronic kidney disease. A growing body of evidence from both laboratory and clinical studies suggests that inflammation is a key factor contributing to the progression of AKI regardless of the initiating event. Biomarkers of inflammation are therefore of interest in the evaluation of AKI pathogenesis and prognosis. There is evidence that the renin angiotensin aldosterone system is activated in AKI, which leads to an increase in angiotensin II (Ang II) formation within the kidney...

BACKGROUND: Intravesical Bacilli Calmette-Guerin (IVBCG) therapy for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) has long been in use successfully. Albeit rarely, we still face with its safety concerns more than 25 years on since its approval by US Food and Drug Agency in 1990. Local and systemic infection following intravesical BCG is widely reported as compared to immune mediated local or systemic hypersensitivity reactions involving kidneys; acute kidney injury (AKI) and other renal manifestations are well reported but not of chronic kidney disease (CKD)...

STAT3 is a transcriptional regulator that plays an important role in coordinating inflammation and immunity. In addition, there is a growing appreciation of the role STAT3 signaling plays in response to organ injury following diverse insults. Acute kidney injury (AKI) from ischemia-reperfusion injury is a common clinical entity with devastating consequences, and the recognition that endothelial alterations contribute to kidney dysfunction in this setting is of growing interest. Consequently, we used a mouse with a genetic deletion of Stat3 restricted to the endothelium to examine the role of STAT3 signaling in the pathophysiology of ischemic AKI...

While the short-term implications of acute kidney injury (AKI) have been known for many years, far less attention has been paid to the health of AKI survivors. This was perhaps fueled by a prevailing wisdom that if a patient was fortunate enough to survive the primary illness associated with AKI, the prognosis for future health was auspicious. More recently, this dogma was challenged by data suggesting that after an episode of AKI, patients remain at risk of experiencing multiple adverse health outcomes. Greater recognition and appreciation of the risks faced by AKI survivors have led to the development of quality improvement initiatives that are supposed to enrich this vulnerable population...

With the adoption of the new definition and classification of cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) and its relevant subtypes, much attention has been placed on elucidating the mechanisms of heart and kidney interactions. The pathophysiologic pathways are of great interest by which acute heart failure may result in acute kidney injury (AKI; type 1), chronic heart failure accelerates the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD; type 2), AKI provokes cardiac events (type 3), and CKD increases the risk and severity of cardiovascular disease (type 4)...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is increasingly common around the world. Because of the low availability of effective therapies and resource limitations, early preventive and therapeutic measures are essential to decrease morbidity, mortality, and cost. Timely recognition and diagnosis of AKI requires a heightened degree of suspicion in the appropriate clinical and environmental context. In low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), early detection is impaired by limited resources and low awareness. In this article, we report the consensus recommendations of the 18th Acute Dialysis Quality Initiative meeting in Hyderabad, India, on how to improve recognition of AKI...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) does not represent the predominant phenotype of acute kidney injury (AKI) in cirrhosis. Early recognition of HRS helps initiate appropriate therapy. The aims of this review are to present redefinition of AKI, to list new biomarkers, to report recent data on vasopressors in HRS and to propose criteria for simultaneous liver and kidney transplantation (SLKT). RECENT FINDINGS: Urine output, which was not part of the definition of AKI might be reconsidered as it has an independent prognostic value...
