Performance of the chronic kidney disease-epidemiology study equations for estimating glomerular filtration rate before and after nephrectomy.


PURPOSE Accurate renal function determination before and after nephrectomy is essential for proper prevention and management of chronic kidney disease due to nephron loss and ischemic injury. We compared the estimated glomerular filtration rate using several serum creatinine based formulas against the measured rate based on (125)I-iothalamate clearance to… (More)
