Acute kidney injury in patients with decompensated heart failure.

Abstract

Decompensated heart failure is one of the leading causes of acute hospital admission in the UK. Worsening renal function, essentially reflecting acute kidney injury, is frequently encountered in such patients and is associated with significantly worse outcome. Recognition and appropriate management of such patients is vital.
