The annual rate of dialysis-requiring acute kidney injury increased by about 10% on average from 2000 to 2009, with older people, men and black people being the most likely patients, a study showed. Annual mortality for such conditions rose from 18,000 to almost 39,000 during the study period, researchers said. They wrote in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology that the incidence of these injuries surpassed that of kidney failure that needs transplant or dialysis.
