BACKGROUND: The definition of acute kidney injury (AKI) has evolved over the years, and three definitions have been adapted including pediatric risk injury failure, loss of kidney function (pRIFLE), Acute Kidney Injury Network (AKIN), and Neonatal Modified Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO). We sought to report the prevalence and outcome of (AKI) according to the three existing definitions in extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants. METHODS: In a retrospective cohort study, medical records of all ELBW infants (<1000 g) admitted to our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) between Jan 2002 and Dec 2011 were reviewed...

Normal developmental changes during postnatal life hinder the development of an AKI definition and advancement of neonatal AKI research. This report summarizes the expert discussion at a National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases sponsored neonatal AKI workshop, on knowledge gaps in defining neonatal AKI. The most important knowledge gaps and neonatal AKI definition research recommendations were agreed upon and defined. Several challenges were identified in defining neonatal AKI using serum creatinine (SCr) and urine output criteria applied in adults and children...

Mortality is high among sick neonates who have concomitant acute kidney injury (AKI). This observational study was done at Special Care Baby Unit (SCABU) of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), Bangladesh from October 2013 to March 2014 to find out the role of pRIFLE criteria in prediction of severity stages of AKI in neonate and early intervention to see the immediate outcome. A total of 44 neonates with AKI were included, all were treated conservatively and with intermittent peritoneal dialysis (IPD) as needed...

OBJECTIVE: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication after cardiopulmonary bypass (CBP) for cardiac surgery in neonates. It is unclear if exposure to computed tomography angiography (CTA) in the preoperative period increases the risk of AKI. We hypothesized a short interval between CTA and CPB surgery would be associated with higher rates of AKI in infants. DESIGN: In this single center retrospective review of patients between 2012 and 2015, neonates less than one month old were analyzed if they had CTA prior to cardiac surgery with CPB...

BACKGROUND: Neonatal acute kidney injury (AKI) is common and is associated with poor outcomes. New criteria for the diagnosis of AKI were introduced based on the increase in serum creatinine (SCr) levels and/or reduction of urine output (UOP). Yet, there is no generally accepted opinion so far, which criteria (whether SCr, UOP, or their combination) are the most appropriate to diagnose neonatal AKI. METHODS: The retrospective study included 195 prematurely born neonates who fulfilled all inclusion criteria (with at least two SCr measurements)...

Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) is a rare syndrome characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute kidney injury that is usually caused by complement dysregulation. Complement factor H (CFH) is a regulator of the complement system produced in the liver, and CFH gene mutations are the most frequent causes of aHUS. To date, the therapeutic options for aHUS with CFH mutations have consisted of plasma infusions, plasma exchange, kidney transplantation, isolated liver transplantation, or combined liver and kidney transplantation...

Treating acute kidney injury (AKI) in newborns is often challenging due to the functional immaturity of the neonatal kidney. Because of this physiological limitation, renal replacement therapy (RRT) in this particular patient population is difficult to execute and may lead to unwanted complications. Although fluid overload and electrolyte abnormalities, as seen in neonatal AKI, are indications for RRT initiation, there is limited evidence that RRT initiated in the first year of life improves long-term outcome...

A prospective national cohort study was undertaken to collect data on all cases of pediatric (under 18 yrs of age) acute kidney injury (AKI) identified by a biochemistry-based electronic alert using the Welsh National electronic AKI reporting system. Herein we describe the utility and limitation of using this modification of the KDIGO creatinine-based system data set to characterize pediatric AKI. Of 1,343 incident episodes over a 30-month period, 34.5% occurred in neonates of which 83.8% were AKI stage 1. Neonatal 30-day mortality was 4...

OBJECTIVES: Renal replacement therapy may be required for acute kidney injury treatment in neonates with complex cardiac conditions. Continuous veno-venous hemofiltration is applied safely in this population but no published recommendations for dose prescription in neonates currently exist. The aim of our study was to evaluate the effects of a relatively small dialysis dose on critically ill neonates. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of clinical charts. SETTING: Pediatric Cardiac ICU...

BACKGROUND: Early surgical correction of congenital heart malformations in neonates and small infants may be complicated by acute kidney injury (AKI), which is associated with higher morbidity and mortality rates, especially in patients who require dialysis. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is considered the best measurement of renal function which, in neonates and infants, is highly dependent on heart function. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether measurements of creatinine clearance after open heart surgery in neonates and young infants can serve as an early indicator of surgical success or AKI...

OBJECTIVES: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is defined as a decrease in glomerular filtration rate with an increase in serum creatinine (sCr). Perinatal asphyxia (PNA) may be etiological factor for AKI with oxidative stress also implicated. Paraoxonase 1 (PON1) activity has been reported to be decreased in renal disease. The aim of our study was to evaluate paraoxonase 1 (PON1) activity and oxidative stress during the first hours and first days of life and to determine if these parameters could discriminate neonates having AKI from those who do not...

Treatment options for adenovirus infection in immunocompromised children are limited. Nephrotoxicity has been associated with cidofovir use, but the rate of cidofovir-associated nephrotoxicity in pediatric patients is unclear. In a retrospective review of patients with adenovirus infection treated with cidofovir, neonates (n = 5) had higher viral loads and shorter times to renal insufficiency than older children (n = 24). Higher weekly doses of cidofovir were associated with greater increases in creatinine levels...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is used as a last resort during neonatal and pediatric resuscitation in case of refractory circulatory or respiratory failure under maximum conventional therapies. Different types of ECMO can be used depending on the initial failure. The main indications for ECMO are refractory respiratory failure (acute respiratory distress syndrome, status asthmaticus, severe pneumonia, meconium aspiration syndrome, pulmonary hypertension) and refractory circulatory failure (cardiogenic shock, septic shock, refractory cardiac arrest)...

BACKGROUND: Propionic acidemia (PA) is a rare but severe recessive autosomal disease, presenting with non specific signs in the first years of life. Prenatal diagnosis is invasive (amniocentesis) and limited to suspect cases. No screening test has been described, in particular no correlations between prenatal sonography and PA have been documented so far. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a boy with fetal bilateral nephromegaly and hyperechogenic kidneys, along with neonatal acute kidney injury; no etiology could be found in the first months of life...

PURPOSE: Renal injury in term and pre-term neonates may be an antecedent to chronic kidney disease in the child's further life. The aim of the paper was to compile a reference range for selected serum and urinary renal markers in the neonatal period for full-term (FT) and pre-term (PT) newborns. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The prospective study included 23 FT infants (birth weight - BW≥2500g and gestational age - GA≥37Hbd) and 32 PT children (BW<2500g and GA<37Hbd) in good general condition, without acute kidney injury (AKI) or sepsis...

BACKGROUND: Very low birth weight (VLBW) neonates commonly experience acute kidney injury (AKI) in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). We hypothesize that VLBW neonates exposed to AKI in the NICU might be at a higher risk of renal dysfunction during childhood. METHODS: In this cohort study, VLBW children (aged 3-7 years) completed a kidney health evaluation and were stratified according to AKI status in the NICU. The primary outcome was renal dysfunction defined as any of the following: estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) <90 mL/min/1...
