Does warfarin cause acute kidney injury?


 

REPORTING FROM THSNA 2018


“We don’t know that all of these episodes of AKI are related to warfarin, but we do see a definite increase of AKI after an episode of overanticoagulation (an INR greater than 4),” Dr. Traquair said. “In patients who are at risk for AKI, monitoring their kidney function after an episode of overanticoagulation is probably warranted.”

Dr. Traquair reported having no financial disclosures.
