Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

A cute renal failure occurs in 1-10% of all hospitalised patients and in 5-35% of all patients admitted to the ICU. Following trauma, the incidence of ARF is reported to be between 0.1% and 8.4%. This wide range may be explained by the different patient populations described and the varying criteria that have been used to define the entity of ARF in the existing literature.
