Abstract

Background. The term acute kidney injury (AKI) and its classification in strata defined as Risk, Injury, Failure, Loss and End-stage renal failure (RIFLE) need to be validated in different patient groups. RIFLE may be useful to foresee medical and logistic problems in crush-related AKI in disaster victims.
