Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a major complication in hospitalized and intensive care unit patients and is independently associated with short- and long-term mortality. AKI is associated with high morbidity and mortality and a greater risk of adverse outcomes after hospital discharge. After AKI, the incidence of chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease is increased. AKI is not a single disease but a series of heterogeneous syndromes, and if these lesions are left untreated, the patient's condition can worsen, resulting in complete loss of kidney function or death.

As there are many causes of acute kidney injury, more in-depth studies are still needed. For this Special Issue, we call for researchers and clinicians to submit valuable research on AKI to bring about more knowledge and awareness of this issue, as has been done in nephrology, internal medicine, critical care, and other disciplines and skill areas.

Dr. Anna Clementi
Guest Editor
