The role of statins in reducing the incidence of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) remains controversial. We sought to evaluate the association between CI-AKI and high plasma exposure of statins in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients undergoing coronary angiography (CAG). This association was first evaluated in 1,219 patients with CAD receiving atorvastatin (AT) therapy and validated in 635 patients receiving rosuvastatin (RST) therapy. The plasma concentrations of statins were quantified using validated UPLC-MS/MS methods and CI-AKI incidence was assessed during the first 48 h postoperatively...

Over 30 million people worldwide have sickle cell disease (SCD). Emergent and non-emergent surgical procedures in SCD have been associated with relatively increased risks of peri-operative mortality, vaso-occlusive (painful) crisis, acute chest syndrome, post-operative infections, congestive heart failure, cerebrovascular accident and acute kidney injury. Pre-operative assessment must include a careful review of the patient's known crisis triggers, baseline hematologic profile, usual transfusion requirements, pre-existing organ dysfunction and opioid use...

BACKGROUND: As a tricyclic glycopeptide antibiotic used to treat acute infections, Vancomycin (VAN) is often administered with piperacillin/tazobactam (PT) to treat various infections in clinical practice. However, whether the combination of these two drugs, compared to VAN alone, can cause an increased risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) remains controversial. OBJECTIVES: This study aims to identify the correlation between the development of AKI and the combined use of VAN and PT...

Background: Single-center studies suggest that neonatal acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with poor outcomes. However, inferences regarding the association between AKI, mortality, and hospital length of stay are limited due to the small sample size of those studies. In order to determine whether neonatal AKI is independently associated with increased mortality and longer hospital stay, we analyzed the Assessment of Worldwide Acute Kidney Epidemiology in Neonates (AWAKEN) database...

Introduction: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common in hospitalized patients with cirrhosis and is associated with poor prognosis. A risk prediction score combining values easily measured at admission could be valuable to stratify patients for prevention, monitoring and early intervention, ultimately improving patient care and outcomes. The aim of this study was to develop a risk score for AKI in a cohort of cirrhotic patients. Patients and methods: We cross-examined the data from a retrospective analysis of 186 patients with cirrhosis admitted to the Gastroenterology and Hepatology Service of Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Norte from January 2003 to December 2005...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery bypass grafting is applicable with very low mortality and morbidity rates around the world. However, exposure to even one of the risk factors increases mortality and morbidity significantly. There are three acute kidney injury definitions, and classification methods are applicable (Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO); Risk, Injury, and Failure; and Loss; and End-stage kidney disease (RIFLE); and Acute Kidney Injury Network (AKIN)), for understanding and grading of renal impairment...

INTRODUCTION: Postmarketing pharmacovigilance reports have raised concerns about non-bleeding adverse events associated with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs), but only limited results are available from large claims databases. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the potential association between DOAC initiation and the onset of four types of non-bleeding adverse events by sequence symmetry analysis (SSA). METHODS: SSA was performed using nationwide data from the French National Healthcare databases (Régime Général, 50 million beneficiaries) to assess a cohort of 386,081 DOAC new users for the first occurrence of four types of non-bleeding outcomes: renal, hepatic, skin outcomes identified by using hospitalization discharge diagnoses, and gastrointestinal outcomes by using medication reimbursement...
