acute kidney injury 982 RCTs which compared iNO with controls up to September 2014. Effect estimates for risk ratio (RR) of acute kidney injury (AKI) were pooled using a random-effects model.ResultsTen RCTs involving 1363 participants were included.
acute kidney injury 3848 without ARDS. Therefore, we conducted this systematic review and meta-analysis to ascertain the risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) in iNO therapy and to investigate whether the risk varies among different patient populations.Materials
