Abstract

Renal dysfunction is a frequent complication in patients with end-stage liver disease awaiting orthotopic liver transplantation and in the post-liver transplant period. Although the stereotypical form of renal dysfunction is the hepatorenal syndrome, other causes of acute kidney injury in this population include prerenal azotemia and acute tubular necrosis. Renal injury in a patient with cirrhosis is associated with a poor prognosis.
