This article of the month comes to us from Dr. Arwa Nada, evaluating a recent article about AKI rates after critical congenital heart disease surgery. In this retrospective single center study of 317 neonates, the rate of AKI was 36%. AKI was also associated with increased mortality and more complicated admissions with longer respiratory support.

Six2 Crew: Neonatal Nephrology Internship
Congratulations to our first group of Six2 Crew interns. Our 8 interns include pediatric residents, chief residents, as well as fellows in neonatology and nephrology (or both!). During their two years with the program, they will rotate through each committee and learn more about the work of the NKC. Join us in welcoming them to the NKC!
We have created a page on the website which pulls directly from PubMed the newest articles in neonatal kidney disease. While this is not an inclusive list, we hope that this is a helpful resource for NKC members to stay up to date on the new publications in the field.
Dr. David Askenazi recently appeared on the Inside Pediatrics podcast to talk about neonatal kidney disease, dialysis therapy advancements and care for children with complex kidney issues. Please take a listen HERE.
