Sample text

To overcome such limitations, animal models of ARF have been developed that enable more sophisticated and invasive measurements to be made. Unfortunately, as recently highlighted e96 Nephron Exp Nephrol 2008;109:e95–e100 The Primacy of Renal Blood Flow A major paradigm that has been derived from observations in animals and humans with hypodynamic shock (hemorrhagic, cardiogenic or even septic) is that AKI is due to renal ischemia. This construct implies that restoration of adequate renal blood flow should therefore be the primary means of renal protection in critically ill patients.

As well as an increased risk of death, contrast-induced AKI is also associated with other adverse outcomes including late cardiovascular events after PCI. In one registry of 5,967 PCI patients, the development of contrastinduced AKI was associated with an increased incidence of MI and target vessel revascularization at 1 year [26]. Another large PCI study documented the link between contrast-induced AKI, postprocedural increases in creatine kinase-myocardial band (CK-MB) subfraction, and the risk of late cardiovascular events [27].

Renal Bioenergetics fold. Clearly, these animals had developed severe AKI with marked loss of GFR in the setting of marked hyperemia. Interestingly, during this 48-hour period all markers of tubular function indicated overall preservation of tubular activity providing suggestive evidence that GFR was lost in the absence of tubular necrosis [20]. We were then able to study their recovery from such severe septic AKI. During recovery, we saw the same changes seen during sepsis but in reverse [21].
