conference overview

The KDIGO Controversies Conference on Acute Kidney Injury will revisit KDIGO AKI nomenclature and diagnostic criteria; discuss AKI risk stratification and the role of biomarkers in this process; examine the role of resuscitation fluids and nephrotoxins in the critically ill; and address timing and modality of kidney replacement therapy in AKI.  The objective of this conference is to identify areas where knowledge has significantly advanced since the publication of the 2012 KDIGO Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) Guideline and to outline existing controversies in diagnosis and management of AKI in order to lay the foundation for a future targeted revision of that guideline.

The KDIGO AKI Conference will be co-chaired by John Kellum, University of Pittsburgh, USA and Marlies Ostermann, Guy’s & St Thomas Hospital, UK.
