LLUNCOR, Juan; CRUZ-ENCARNACION, María J.  and  CIEZA, Javier. Factors associated to acute renal injury in incident patients in a general hospital in Lima, Peru. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2015, vol.26, n.1, pp.24-30. ISSN 1018-130X.

Objectives: To identify factors associated to acute renal injury (ARF) in patients attending the emergency room of a general hospital. Methods: Case-control, study that included 50 cases and 100 controls. Association we determined by calculating odds ratios. Results: Factors identified were severity of illness (OR=6,14); an infectious process at admission (OR=2.85); sepsis (OR=3.78) and septic shock (OR=6.77). Comorbidities associated to ARF were alcohol and tobacco consumption, cancer and neuropsychiatric illness (p=0.001). Age, gender and other variables were not associated. Conclusions: Severity of illness and presence of an infectious disease on admission correlated with ARF.

Keywords : Acute kidney injury; risk factors; sepsis; comorbidity.
