OBJECTIVES To summarise the evidence from studies of acute kidney injury (AKI) with regard to the effect of pre-AKI renal function and post-AKI renal function recovery on long-term mortality and renal outcomes, and to assess whether these factors should be taken into account in future prognostic studies. DESIGN/SETTING A systematic review of observational(More)
BACKGROUND Early detection of acute kidney injury (AKI) is important for safe clinical practice. NHS England is implementing a nationwide automated AKI detection system based on changes in blood creatinine. Little has been reported on the similarities and differences of AKI patients detected by this algorithm and other definitions of AKI in the literature.(More)
In clinical practice, research, and increasingly health surveillance, planning and costing, there is a need for high quality information to determine comorbidity information about patients. Electronic, routinely collected healthcare data is capturing increasing amounts of clinical information as part of routine care. The aim of this study was to assess the(More)
Reproductive outcomes and health of offspring were investigated in 340 patients with Hodgkin's disease first treated at Mount Vernon Hospital, Middlesex, England, at ages under 40 (females) or 45 (males) during 1970-91. Information on offspring was obtained from case-notes and postal questionnaires to the patients. Eleven men and 16 women who had conceived(More)
BACKGROUND Acute kidney injury (AKI) is serious and widespread across healthcare (1 in 7 hospital admissions) but recognition is often delayed causing avoidable harm. Nationwide automated biochemistry alerts for AKI stages 1-3 have been introduced in England to improve recognition. We explored how these alerts compared with clinical diagnosis in different(More)
BACKGROUND Reducing readmissions is an international priority in healthcare. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common, serious and also a global concern. This analysis evaluates AKI as a candidate risk factor for unplanned readmissions and determines the reasons for readmissions. METHODS GLOMMS-II is a large population cohort from one health authority in(More)
BACKGROUND The long-term prognosis after acute kidney injury (AKI) is variable. It is unclear how the prognosis of AKI and its relationship to prognostic factors (baseline kidney function, AKI severity, prior AKI episodes, and recovery of kidney function) change as follow-up progresses. STUDY DESIGN Observational cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS The(More)
Internationally, investment in the availability of routine health care data for improving health, health surveillance and health care is increasing. We assessed the validity of hospital episode data for identifying individuals with chronic kidney disease compared to biochemistry data in a large population-based cohort, the Grampian Laboratory Outcomes,(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the long term effects of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy on renal function. DESIGN Cohort study where exposure was gestational hypertension or preeclampsia in the first pregnancy. Normotensive women formed the comparison group. SETTING Aberdeen, Scotland. PARTICIPANTS All women with date of birth on or before 30th June 1969 and(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is common, important and associated with increased healthcare needs due to CKD progression. Definitions of renal disease progression are multiple, and not always comparable. A measure of 'progression' directly comparable with renal replacement therapy (RRT) initiation would identify 'progressors' in research and for(More)
