Delayed versus early initiation of renal replacement therapy for severe acute kidney injury: a systematic review and individual patient data meta-analysis of randomised clinical trials – The Lancet
The timing of RRT initiation does not affect survival in critically ill patients with severe acute kidney injury in the absence of urgent indications for RRT. Delaying RRT initiation, with close patient monitoring, might lead to a reduced use of RRT, thereby saving health resources.

Novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a newly discovered contagious disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus, primarily manifesting as an acute respiratory illness with interstitial and alveolar pneumonia, but can affect multiple organs such as kidney, heart, digestive tract, blood and nervous system1. The rapidly spreading outbreak which first emerged in Wuhan, Hubei Province in China in December 2019 has raised concerns about a global pandemic. To date (2 March 2020), 88,948 cases of COVID-19 have been reported worldwide in 65 countries (and a cruise ship) and 79,842 in mainland China, with 3,043 deaths worldwide (mainland China 2,915 deaths).
Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for ESKD. However, transplantation is associated with a variety of potential complications. Although much of the focus surrounds immunosuppression, electrolyte imbalances frequently arise. Herein, we discuss several common issues: hyperkalemia,
How long should patients be observed after percutaneous kidney biopsies? | Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation | Oxford Academic
Un report sull’esperienza personale di Gary Abuelo, Nefrologo di lungo corso presso il Rhode Island Hospital di Providence (peraltro un caro amico!), che ci informa sulla sua esperienza su oltre 1200 biopsie di reni nativi. Le complicanze, se ci sono, avvengono entro le 8 h post-biopsia!
Although the percutaneous kidney biopsy is relatively safe, serious postbiopsy bleeding occurs in a few cases. Therefore, patients must be monitored after the b
The diagnosis of malignancy in the setting of nephrotic syndrome is associated with a poor overall and kidney survival regardless of whether the glomerular disease represents a paraneoplastic manifestation or the cancer is a coincidental finding. The diagnosis of the neoplasia leads to consideration
Kidney health for everyone everywhere—from prevention to detection and equitable access to care – Kidney International
Around 850 million people currently are affected by different types of kidney disorders.1 Up to 1 in 10 adults worldwide has chronic kidney disease (CKD), which is invariably irreversible and mostly progressive. The global burden of CKD is increasing, and CKD is projected to become the fifth most common cause of years of life lost globally by 2040.2 If CKD remains uncontrolled and if the affected person survives the ravages of cardiovascular and other complications of the disease, CKD progresses to end-stage kidney disease, where life cannot be sustained without dialysis therapy or kidney transplantation.
Post–Acute Kidney Injury Proteinuria and Subsequent Kidney Disease Progression: The Assessment, Serial Evaluation, and Subsequent Sequelae in Acute Kidney Injury (ASSESS-AKI) Study | Acute Kidney Injury | JAMA Internal Medicine | JAMA Network
This cohort study quantifies whether proteinuria after hospital discharge is associated with future loss of renal function among patients who had acute kidney injury during hospitalization.
