Acute kidney injury in patients with cirrhosis is quite common, and is seen in up to 50% of patients hospitalized for decompensated cirrhosis. Causes of acute kidney injury include prerenal, renal, or postrenal etiologies. The diagnosis and early institution of nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic management are key to the recovery of renal function. The objective of this review is to provide a practical approach to the use of diagnostic biomarkers and highlight the nonpharmacologic management and prevention of acute kidney injury.
