PURPOSE: To investigate the characteristics of women who have kidney injury during pregnancy. METHODS: Medical records of all women who gave birth at our institution between January 1, 2005, and December 31, 2010, were retrospectively reviewed electronically. We identified those who incurred a kidney injury [defined by modified Acute Kidney Injury Network (AKIN) criteria: serum creatinine (sCr) increase ≥0.3 mg/dL] during pregnancy or within 30 days postpartum. Identified case records were reviewed in detail. RESULTS: During the study period, 54 women had a kidney injury (0.4 % estimated incidence) with a mean (SD) increase in sCr of 0.46 (0.29) mg/dL; most injuries were AKIN stage 1 with transient increases in sCr. Most of the women (n = 48, 87.3 %) had substantial preexisting or pregnancy-associated comorbid conditions (e.g., kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes), complications (e.g., preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome), or a complicated obstetric course (hemorrhage, infections) that could have contributed to the development of a kidney injury. Two patients had AKIN stage 3 injuries: a previously healthy patient who had a massive hemorrhage during cesarean delivery, and a patient with a renal transplant who had deterioration and eventual postpartum failure of her transplanted kidney. CONCLUSIONS: The majority of pregnancy-associated kidney injuries were transient and occurred in women with substantial comorbid conditions or complicated pregnancies.
