The article presents information on a study conducted to find out the optimal intensity of renal replacement therapy (RRT) for critically ill patients with acute kidney injury. Patients included 1124 critically ill adults who had acute kidney injury due to acute tubular necrosis and required RRT, and had sepsis. The results stated that intensive RRT and less-intensive RRT did not differ for all-cause death at 60 days, in-hospital death, or complete recovery of kidney function by day 28.
