Renal recovery after dialysis-requiring acute kidney injury (AKI-D) is an important clinical and patient-centered outcome. Here we examined whether the pre-admission proteinuria level independently influences risk for non-recovery after AKI-D in a community-based population. All adult members of Kaiser Permanente Northern California who experienced AKI-D between January 1, 2009 and September 30, 2015 were included. Pre-admission proteinuria levels were determined by dipstick up to four years before the AKI-D hospitalization and the outcome was renal recovery (survival and dialysis-independence four weeks and more) at 90 days after initiation of renal replacement therapy...

BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether pathologic findings on preoperative urinalysis are associated with the risk of postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI). Therefore, we performed a retrospective review to investigate this association. METHODS: We assessed the clinical significance of preoperative dipstick urinalysis in a 10-year surgery cohort from a tertiary hospital in Korea. Patients without available information on perioperative serum creatinine levels or kidney injury prior to surgery were excluded...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with subsequent chronic kidney disease (CKD), but the mechanism is unclear. To clarify this, we examined the association of AKI and new-onset or worsening proteinuria during the 12 months following hospitalization in a national retrospective cohort of United States Veterans hospitalized between 2004-2012. Patients with and without AKI were matched using baseline demographics, comorbidities, proteinuria, estimated glomerular filtration rate, blood pressure, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or angiotensin II receptor blocker (ACEI/ARB) use, and inpatient exposures linked to AKI...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have examined the treatment and outcome of adult-onset minimal change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS). We retrospectively studied 125 patients who had MCNS with onset in either adulthood or late adolescence. Presenting characteristics, duration of initial treatment and response to treatment, relapse patterns, complications, and long-term outcome were studied. STUDY DESIGN: Case series. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Patients with new-onset nephrotic syndrome 16 years or older and a histologic diagnosis of MCNS in 1985 to 2011 were identified from pathology records of 10 participating centers...

BACKGROUND: Albuminuria is associated with cardiovascular (CV) outcomes. We evaluated albuminuria, alone and in combination with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), as a predictor of mortality and CV morbidity in 12,944 patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes. METHODS: Baseline serum creatinine and urinary dipsticks were obtained, with albuminuria stratified into no/trace albuminuria, microalbuminuria (≥30 but <300 mg/dL), or macroalbuminuria (≥300 mg/dL)...

The effect on post-operative outcomes after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is not clear. Among 17,812 patients who underwent CABG during October 1,2006-September 28,2012 in any Department of US Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital, we identified 5,968 with available preoperative urine albumin-creatinine ratio (UACR) measurements. We examined the association of UACR<30, 30-299 and >=300 mg/g with 30/90/180/365-day and overall all-cause mortality, and hospitalization length >10 days, and with acute kidney injury(AKI)...
