Time of death, recovery of renal function, development of chronic renal failure and need for chronic hemodialysis in patients with acute tubular necrosis.

Abstract

We analyzed 432 patients with acute tubular necrosis, dialyzed at the University of Minnesota Dialysis Unit between 1968-1979. Only 135 patients or 31% survived.
