HanyElsayed Ibrahim, Naglaa Ali Khalifa, Rehab Afifi Gouda Afifi , Ahmed Hosni Mowafy
Abstract
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common and potentially life-threatening condition. AKI is defined by an increase of serum creatinine by ≥0.3 mg/dL/1 in 48 h or an increase by ≥1.5-fold from a known or assumed baseline or by a decrease of urinary output to less than 0.5 mL /kg/1 hfor 6 h.The objectives of this study were to assess the specificity and sensitivity of urinary calprotactin in early detection of intrinsic AKI and to compare between Urinary Calprotectin and serum creatinine for early detection of intrinsic AKI.
