Acute kidney injury: Early detection thanks to biomarker

Dear Sir or Madam,

Many patients feel the effects of abdominal surgery for a long time after the operation. In some cases, kidney damage may even occurr, but it takes a few days to show noticeable symptoms. So as not to lose this valuable time in diagnosis, in the future a non-invasive biomarker test is supposed to predict damage after surgery. Read more in our current interview.

Have a successful week,

Acute kidney injury: Early detection thanks to biomarker


Image: surgeons during surgery; Copyright: UKR
Major surgeries in the abdominal region often result in kidney injury in patients. Meanwhile, the clinical manifestations don't present until one or two days after the procedure. This causes physicians to lose valuable time to treat patients. The University Hospital Regensburg has researched a new concept for the treatment of kidney injuries for several years.
