Methods: A cross sectional analysis of 2012 Healthcare Cost Utilization Project Kids’ Inpatient Databases was performed. Patients aged 20 years and below with length of stay (LOS) 7 days and greater were identified. ICD-9-CM codes 584.5, 584.6, 584.7, 584.8, and 584.9, were used to identify AKI. Incidence of AKI, and predictors of AKI, mortality and cost were analyzed in HF patients with and without a VAD.
