Patients who suffer an intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) face an increased risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) during their hospitalization. AKI can lead to sudden kidney failure, kidney damage or even death.
Researchers from the University of Missouri School of Medicine and MU Health Care have determined which ICH patients are at the highest risk for this kidney injury so doctors can take precautions to prevent it.
Lead researcher Adnan I. Qureshi, a professor of clinical neurology at the MU School of Medicine, said the team used a more global body approach, rather than just focusing on the brain, to help determine which patients are at greater risk. Researchers found that blood pressure levels and blood samples from initial sets of labs can help identify patients who will develop kidney injury.
