Difference in risk assessment for development of contrast-induced acute kidney injury using the MDRD versus CKD-EPI equations to estimate glomerular filtration rate

Published:September 05, 2016DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejim.2016.08.032

      Highlights

      • Recent studies demonstrated that the CKD-EPI equation more accurately estimates GFR compared to the MDRD equation.
      • Differences in CI-AKI risk classification do occur when using CKD-EPI instead of MDRD equation.
      • The MDRD underestimates the eGFR more often than the CKD-EPI equation, which may result in more use of preventive measures.
      • Whether the CKD-EPI equation is the preferable equation for CI-AKI risk assessment needs further study
