Tran et al (26) reported that approximately 50% of patients of malaria had biochemical evidence of renal involvement (serum creatinine >2 mg/dl) but only 30% fulfilled the stricter WHO criteria of acute renal failure. Mehta et al (17) found that P.
We gave a single dose betamethasone depot injection 19.6 mg i.m.) because the skin eruptions were getting worse and overriding acute renal failure. Following this treatment, rapid (in days) clinical improvement was observed.
"Thus, the results of this clinical study showed that pre-operative therapy with aspirin is associated with preventing about an extra three cases of acute renal failure per 100 patients undergoing CABG or/and valve surgery," Prof Sun said.
Potentially the most definitive data was to come from the Stuivenberg Hospital Acute Renal Failure investigators, who provided interim analyses of a large, multi-centre, prospective, randomised clinical trial of 996 patients reporting a hospital mortality of 68% for those treated with PIRRT and 64% for those treated with CRRT (45,46).
Renal injury as a result of ischemia reperfusion (I/R) is a major clinical problem and is the most common cause of acute renal failure after renal transplantation, shock, sepsis, and renal artery stenosis.
