Table 2 Potential definition of renal recovery

From: Acute kidney injury: short-term and long-term effects

Renal recovery Assessment
Complete Return of pre-AKI renal function, assessed as eGFR ±10 % of baseline
Partial Persistent impaired eGFR, but no requirement for RRT
Absent Persistent requirement for RRT
  1. Data adapted from Schiffl and Fischer [5]. AKI acute kidney injury, eGFR estimated glomerular filtration rate, RRT renal replacement therapy
