Abstract

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication in patients hospitalized in the intensive care unit (ICU) for sepsis (1,2). It is associated with long-term sequelae such as chronic kidney disease (3) and high mortality (2,4), especially in case of severe AKI associated with septic shock.
