Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is one of the most feared adverse effects of iodinated contrast media for computed tomography (CT). Cleveland Clinic nephrologists present data around CI-AKI and discuss recent practice guidelines.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) in COVID-19 is associated with a higher risk of death. In this article, nephrologists discuss the pathogenesis and optimal management of COVID-19 related AKI.
Patients with more severe cases of COVID-19 may be at greater risk for developing acute kidney injury (AKI). George Thomas, MD, Director of the Center for Blood Pressure Disorders at Cleveland Clinic, discusses possible theories on what is causing AKI and how supportive care can improve outcomes.
