Cardiovascular outcomes after acute kidney failure

Years funded:
2018 - 2019

The incidence of acute renal failure (ARF) is increasing globally. 

Severe renal failure often requires dialysis, which is associated with increased mortality. 

Evidence on cardiovascular diseases (CVD) in survivors following ARF is lacking. 

This project will assess the incidence of CVD and prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors via following up survivors after severe renal failure in an international randomised controlled trial. 

This project will justify further work toward exploration of an interventional study to address risk factors modification in order to develop a systematic approach to improve long term outcomes of survivors following ARF.
