BACKGROUND: There has been an increasing use of national databases to conduct orthopaedic research. Questions regarding the validity and consistency of these studies have not been fully addressed. The purpose of this study was to test for similarity in reported measures between two national databases commonly used for orthopaedic research. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing lumbar spinal fusion procedures during 2009 to 2011 was performed in two national databases: the Nationwide Inpatient Sample and the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with renal cell carcinoma who were treated with radical nephrectomy (RN) or partial nephrectomy (PN) are at risk of postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI), and in consequence, short- and long-term adverse outcomes. We sought to identify independent predictors of 30-day AKI in patients undergoing RN or PN. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2005 and 2011, patients who underwent RN or PN for renal cell carcinoma within the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program data set were identified...

PURPOSE: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common source of morbidity after trauma. We sought to determine novel risk factors for AKI, by Acute Kidney Injury Network (AKIN) criteria, in critically ill trauma patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective cohort of 400 patients admitted to the intensive care unit of a level 1 trauma center was followed for the development of AKI over 5 days. RESULTS: Acute kidney injury developed in 147 (36.8%) of 400 patients...

OBJECTIVES: To examine the outcome of acute kidney injury (AKI) in children with dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), the cause(s) of AKI, and the risk of AKI and fatality. STUDY DESIGN: The medical records of patients age <15 years during 1989 to 2007 were reviewed. DHF-caused AKI and patients with DHF with no AKI were matched 1:2 by age. RESULTS: DHF-caused AKI was clinically estimated to be 0.9% (25/2893) of admissions, with a high mortality rate of 64...

BACKGROUND: Some patients develop proteinuria and progressive renal failure after unilateral nephrectomy, although the majority of patients maintain normal renal function. Reasons to explain this different evolution are not known. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed in 73 patients who had undergone unilateral nephrectomy 13.6 +/- 8.6 years before. Patients with morphologic abnormalities in the remaining kidney, systemic disorders, or abnormal renal function at the time of nephrectomy were excluded...

We report a fatal case of heatstroke in an obese boy who developed multi-organ failure. Six other cases of exertional heatstroke admitted to our hospital over the last 5 years were also reviewed. All of them showed some degree of renal impairment. The causes of renal failure are multifactorial, with rhabdomyolysis being the major mechanism. All cases except one responded to alkaline diuresis without the need for dialysis. Continuous venovenous hemofiltration appeared to be a good alternative in hemodynamically unstable patients...
