Acute Kidney Injury

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a sudden episode of kidney failure or kidney damage that happens within a few hours or a few days. AKI causes a build-up of waste products in your blood and makes it hard for your kidneys to keep the right balance of fluid in your body. AKI can also affect other organs such as the brain, heart, and lungs. Acute kidney injury is common in patients who are in the hospital, in intensive care units, and especially in older adults.

Some disease and conditions can damage your kidneys and lead to Acute Kidney Injury. Some examples include:

  • An allergic reaction to certain types of drugs (called “interstitial nephritis”)
  • A type of cancer called “multiple myeloma
  • A group of diseases (called “scleroderma”) that affect the connective tissue that supports your internal organs
  • A rare condition that causes inflammation and scarring to your blood vessels, making them stiff, weak, and narrow (called “vasculitis”)
  • Conditions that cause inflammation or damage to the kidney tubules, to the small blood vessels in the kidneys, or to the filtering units in the kidneys (such as “tubular necrosis,” “glomerulonephritis, “vasculitis” or “thrombotic microangiopathy”).
  •  A type of severe, life-threatening infection called “sepsis”

  • Prerenal Acute renal Failure
  • Postrenal Acute renal Failure
  • Intrinsic renal failure
  • Acute Kidney Injury– Experimental Models
  • Tubular Diseases
  • Renal filtration function
