STUDY OBJECTIVE To evaluate the accuracy of four equations based on serum creatinine concentration-the original Schwartz equation and the Leger, Bedside Chronic Kidney Disease in Children (CKiD), and Counahan-Barratt equations-for determining glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in pediatric patients with chronic kidney disease. DESIGN Retrospective, observational, cross-sectional study. SETTING Single-center, academic, outpatient pediatric nephrology clinic. PATIENTS Fifty-three pediatric… CONTINUE READING
