Acute kidney injury (AKI) and intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) are common in premature infants.
We previously demonstrated that infants with AKI have a higher hazards ratio to develop grade ≥2 IVH when controlling for confounders.
However, that single-center study was unable to show an overall association.
To test the hypothesis that infants diagnosed with AKI have an increased risk of IVH independent of variables associated with both AKI and IVH, we performed a study on 825 infants from the Assessment of Worldwide Acute Kidney Injury Epidemiology in Neonates (AWAKEN) study (a 24-center multinational retrospective cohort).
A neonatal modified KDIGO definition of AKI was used based on serum creatinine (SCr) and/or urine output criteria. Baseline SCr was defined as the lowest previous value. IVH was diagnosed with head ultrasounds.
