Different experts have contributed to this issue, emphasizing the importance of the change of concept from that of acute renal failure to that of acute kidney injury. This change has led to the development of new definitions and classifications which, together with the understanding that even minor subclinical injury to the kidney may matter, emphasize the need to develop early biomarkers. Sufficiently early diagnosis, a better classification system and a clearer understanding of the pathogenesis promise to deliver novel and effective therapies for patients.
Summarizing recent developments, this publication will be an indispensable help for the clinician to determine the best treatment options for his patients.
