Diagnostic accuracy of cystatin C-based eGFR equations at different GFR levels in children.


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The diagnostic accuracy of cystatin C estimated GFR (eGFR) by various cystatin C equations have varied in different studies. We hypothesized that the GFR level of enrolled patients affects the diagnostic accuracy of a cystatin C equation. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS We analyzed 240 consecutively enrolled… (More)
