  • Recovery After Dialysis-Requiring Acute Kidney Injury

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The Recovery After Dialysis-Requiring Acute Kidney Injury (RAD-AKI) Pilot Study is a 2-arm randomized clinical trial of hospitalized patients with dialysis-requiring acute kidney injury (RAD-AKI), comparing conventional thrice-weekly intermittent hemodialysis dialysis (control) to a "conservative dialysis strategy" in which hemodialysis is not continued unless specific metabolic or clinical indications for RRT are present. The overall hypothesis is that the current practice of thrice-weekly acute intermittent hemodialysis for AKI-D masks evidence of renal recovery and may actually delay or preclude recovery. The primary objective of this pilot study is to assess the safety and feasibility of the proposed intervention and study design.
