Modality of RRT and Recovery of Kidney Function after AKI in Patients Surviving to Hospital Discharge.

.   .   

This retrospective cohort study examined 4738 patients with KDIGO stage 3 AKI admitted to intensive care units from 2000 to 2008 who received RRT for AKI and survived to hospital discharge or 90 days.   There was no significant difference in hazards for nonrecovery or reasons for nonrecovery (mortality or ESRD) with intermittent hemodialysis versus continuous RRT.
