The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of three kidney function estimating equations: classic Cockcroft-Gault (classic CG), corrected Cockcroft-Gault (corrected CG) and simplified Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD), in patients with advanced chronic renal failure. The study was made in 84 nondialyzed patients with chronic renal disease… CONTINUE READING
