Abstract

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common in critically ill patients and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Dysfunction of other organs is an important cause of poor outcomes from AKI. Ample clinical and epidemiologic data show that AKI is associated with distant organ dysfunction in lung, heart, brain, and liver. Recent advancements in basic and clinical research have demonstrated physiologic and molecular mechanisms of distant organ interactions in AKI, including leukocyte activation and infiltration, generation of soluble factors such as inflammatory cytokines/chemokines, and endothelial injury. Oxidative stress and production of reactive oxygen species, as well as dysregulation of cell death in distant organs, are also important mechanism of AKI-induced distant organ dysfunction. This review updates recent clinical and experimental findings on organ crosstalk in AKI and highlights potential molecular mechanisms and therapeutic targets to improve clinical outcomes during AKI.
