Little is known about serum creatinine concentration, urinary creatinine excretion and creatinine clearance in preterm infants. The aim of the present study was to establish age related reference values for the first weeks of life in preterm infants with a birth weight<1500 g. In addition, the possible influence of therapy with dexamethasone, spironolactone and catecholamines was investigated. In 34 patients, serum creatinine, urinary creatinine excretion and creatinine clearance were measured… CONTINUE READING
