Acute Kidney Injury

Acute kidney injury (AKI) corresponds to sudden falls of kidney excretion function in a short time. It is common and catastrophic especially in hospitalised and critically-ill patients and has now been accepted as an important public health problem. However, the literature on the influence of AKI on proceeding kidney function is vague. In this study, we study the influence of AKI on long-term kidney function amongst patients who were identified as having chronic kidney disease.
