Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a widespread, epidemic-level problem. AKI is becoming more common in hospitalized patients with acute illnesses and those undergoing major surgery, according to compelling evidence. AKI's consequences are severe, with an increased risk of short- and long-term mortality, incident CKD, and accelerated progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major component of noncommunicable chronic diseases, which have reached pandemic proportions and are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Patients with impaired renal function are at increased risk not only of kidney disease progression and the development of ESRD but also of cardiovascular disease and mortality. Unfortunately, CKD is underdiagnosed and undertreated, resulting in missed opportunities for clinical improvement. Early detection and appropriate interventions will improve patient care and prevent or delay progression to ESRD.
We welcome papers in this Special Issue that investigate novel biomarkers, pathophysiological mechanisms, and novel treatments in patients with AKI or CKD.
