Long-term results of percutaneous management for anastomotic biliary stricture after orthotopic liver transplantation
. Liver Transpl 2003; 9:394-100.
In the context of orthotopic liver transplantation
(OLT), acute kidney injury (AKI) is a major complication that is associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and the demand for postoperative renal replacement therapy. Therefore, it is a matter of utmost importance to develop reliable prognostic tools that may support in assessing risk of AKI and improving clinical strategies.
