RATIONALE: Little is known about how acute kidney injury (AKI) resolves and whether patterns of reversal of renal dysfunction differ among patients with respect to ultimate recovery. OBJECTIVES: We sought to examine different patterns for AKI reversal that are found in patients and assess how they relate to post-discharge outcomes. METHODS: We studied 16,968 critically ill patients with Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes stage 2-3 AKI using an electronic database...

OBJECTIVES: Severe acute kidney injury requiring continuous renal replacement therapy is associated with a high risk of early mortality. Our objectives were to identify a cohort of early survivors and to follow their renal progress and long-term mortality. DESIGN: Multicenter, observational, retrospective cohort study. SETTING: ICUs in tertiary academic hospitals in Korea. PATIENTS: From 2009 to 2013, we identified 1,764 severe acute kidney injury patients who were started on continuous renal replacement therapy at four hospitals...

BACKGROUND: The long-term prognosis after acute kidney injury (AKI) is variable. It is unclear how the prognosis of AKI and its relationship to prognostic factors (baseline kidney function, AKI severity, prior AKI episodes, and recovery of kidney function) change as follow-up progresses. STUDY DESIGN: Observational cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: The Grampian Laboratory Outcomes Morbidity and Mortality Study II (GLOMMS-II) is a large regional population cohort with complete serial biochemistry and outcome data capture through data linkage...

BACKGROUND: Renal impairment (RI) is a common complication of multiple myeloma (MM). Around 50% of patients with MM have RI at presentation, and up to 5% require dialysis treatment. Severe acute kidney injury (AKI) as a cause of RI is a particular challenge as historically the survival of patients who sustain this complication and require dialysis is very poor. However, in this current period, survival is improving and the focus is on optimum use of novel chemotherapies and the evaluation of extra-corporeal therapies for removal of serum immunoglobulin light chains...

The early initiation of renal replacement therapy has been recommended for patients with acute renal failure by some studies, but its effects on mortality and renal recovery are unknown. We conducted an updated meta-analysis to provide quantitative evaluations of the association between the early initiation of renal replacement therapy and mortality for patients with acute kidney injury. After applying inclusion/exclusion criteria, 51 studies, including 10 randomized controlled trials, with a total of 8179 patients were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: The implementation of new serum creatinine (SCr)-based criteria for acute kidney injury (AKI) has brought to light several areas of uncertainty in patients with cirrhosis. STUDY DESIGN: Population-based cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Adults with cirrhosis hospitalized between 2002-2012. PREDICTOR: We aimed to address the prognostic implications of the new AKI criteria in cirrhosis. OUTCOMES: Baseline kidney function was defined from all outpatient SCr within 3 months before hospitalization...

BACKGROUND: In intensive care unit (ICU) patients, acute kidney injury treated with renal replacement therapy (AKI-RRT) is associated with adverse outcomes. The aim of this study was to evaluate variables associated with long-term survival and kidney outcome and to assess the composite endpoint major adverse kidney events (MAKE; defined as death, incomplete kidney recovery, or development of end-stage renal disease treated with RRT) in a cohort of ICU patients with AKI-RRT. METHODS: We conducted a single-center, prospective observational study in a 50-bed ICU tertiary care hospital...

BACKGROUND: Patterns of acute kidney injury (AKI) can be distinguished by the rate of changes in the serum creation concentrations during hospitalizations. We hypothesized that the timing and values of minimum and maximum serum creatinine (sCr) could be used to distinguish between transient hospital-associated AKI (THA-AKI) and hospital-acquired AKI (HA-AKI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We evaluated adults admitted to 2 regionally distinct academic medical centers. Peak sCr during the hospitalization was used to define AKI, using absolute changes and timing from the minimum sCr...

This multicentre, retrospective observational study was conducted from January 2010 to December 2010 to determine the optimal time for discontinuing continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) by evaluating factors predictive of successful discontinuation in patients with acute kidney injury. Analysis was performed for patients after CRRT was discontinued because of renal function recovery. Patients were divided into two groups according to the success or failure of CRRT discontinuation. In multivariate logistic regression analysis, urine output at discontinuation, creatinine level and CRRT duration were found to be significant variables (area under the receiver operating characteristic curve for urine output, 0...

BACKGROUND: The optimal timing of renal replacement therapy (RRT) initiation in patients undergoing cardiac surgery remains controversial. This study aimed to determine whether preemptive RRT or standard RRT was associated with hospital mortality in cardiac surgical patients with acute kidney injury (AKI). METHODS: Data were retrospectively collected from patients who underwent cardiac surgery and experienced postoperative AKI requiring RRT at Zhongshan Hospital of Fudan University from September 1, 2006 to December 31, 2013...

BACKGROUND: In acute kidney injury (AKI), useless continuation of renal replacement therapy (RRT) may delay renal recovery and impair patient's outcome. In this study, we aimed to identify predictive parameters that may help to a successful RRT weaning for AKI patients. METHODS: We studied 54 surviving AKI patients in which a weaning of RRT was attempted. On the day of weaning (D0) and the following 2 days (D1 and D2), SAPS II and SOFA scores, 24-h diuresis, 24-h urinary creatinine and urea (UCr and UUr), creatinine and urea generation rates (CrGR and UrGR) and clearances (CrCl and UrCl) were collected...

BACKGROUND: Acute-on-chronic renal injury was commonly seen in clinical practice. Reversibility of acute-on-chronic renal injury had not yet been carefully explored. This study tested whether urinary biomarkers could be used as a noninvasive prognostic marker in patients with acute-on-chronic renal injury. METHODS: 108 adult patients with pre-existing chronic kidney disease presenting with acute-on-chronic renal injury were included. Urinary retinol-binding protein (uRBP), N-Acetyl-b-D-Glucosaminidase (uNAG) and albumin (uALB) was quantified...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is the most common cause of organ dysfunction in critically ill adults, with a single episode of AKI, regardless of stage, carrying a significant morbidity and mortality risk. Since the consensus on AKI nomenclature has been reached, data reflecting outcomes have become more apparent allowing investigation of both short- and long-term outcomes.Classically the short-term effects of AKI can be thought of as those reflecting an acute deterioration in renal function per se. However, the effects of AKI, especially with regard to distant organ function ("organ cross-talk"), are being elucidated as is the increased susceptibility to other conditions...

UNLABELLED: Hospital-associated acute kidney injury (HA-AKI) is associated with increased inpatient mortality. Our objective was to categorize HA-AKI based on the timing of minimum and peak inpatient serum creatinine (sCr) and describe the association with inpatient mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study is a retrospective analysis of an administrative data set for adults admitted to a single medical center for over 4 years. Changes and timing of the minimum and peak sCr were used to define HA-AKI categories...

Identifying which liver transplantation (LT) candidates with severe kidney injury will have a full recovery of renal function after liver transplantation alone (LTA) is difficult. Avoiding unnecessary simultaneous liver-kidney transplantation (SLKT) can optimize the use of scarce kidney grafts. Incorrect predictions of spontaneous renal recovery after LTA can lead to increased morbidity and mortality. We retrospectively analyzed all LTA patients at our institution from February 2002 to February 2013 (n = 583) and identified a cohort with severe subacute renal injury (n = 40; creatinine <2 mg/dL in the 14-89 days prior to LTA and not on renal replacement therapy [RRT] yet, ≥2 mg/dL within 14 days of LTA and/or on RRT)...

The clinical diagnosis and recovery of acute kidney injury (AKI) are mainly based on the rapid decline of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and its subsequent recovery. The factors that determine kidney recovery and reduce the risk of subsequent progression to chronic kidney disease (CKD), however, are poorly understood. Thus, there is a need to better define the magnitude and time pattern of changes in kidney function during AKI and its recovery that go beyond GFR. Tubular transport regulates body homeostasis and the associated transport work is a primary determinant of the kidneys' energy needs...

BACKGROUND: As renal biopsies are not routinely repeated to monitor treatment response in anti-neutrophil cytoplasm antibody (ANCA)-associated glomerulonephritis, serum creatinine (SC) and proteinuria assessed by urine protein:creatinine ratio (UPCR) measurements are relied upon to provide a non-invasive estimate of disease activity within the kidney. However, sparse information exists about the time to achieve maximal improvement in these parameters, which has important implications for treatment decisions and disease-scoring systems...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common in children following surgery for congenital heart disease and has been associated with poor long-term kidney outcomes. Children undergoing heart transplantation may be at increased risk for the development of both AKI and chronic kidney disease (CKD). This study examines AKI rates in children, adolescents, and young adults after heart transplantation and analyzes the relationship between AKI and CKD in this population. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study...

BACKGROUND: There are no easily available markers of renal recovery to guide intermittent hemodialysis (IHD) weaning. The aim of this study was to identify markers for IHD weaning in critically ill patients with acute kidney injury (AKI). METHODS: We performed a retrospective single-center cohort study of patients treated with IHD for at least 7 days and four dialysis sessions for AKI between 2006 and 2011 in an intensive care unit (ICU) of a French university hospital...
