Funding Cincinnati Children's Hospital Center for Acute Care Nephrology provided funding to create and maintain the Assessment of Worldwide Acute Kidney Injury Epidemiology in Neonates (AWAKEN) study Medidata Rave electronic database. The Pediatric and Infant Center for Acute Nephrology (PICAN) provided support for web meetings and for the Neonatal Kidney Collaborative (NKC) steering committee annual meeting at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), as well as support for two of the AWAKEN study investigators at UAB (D.A., R.G., and L.B.). PICAN is part of the Department of Pediatrics at UAB and is funded by Children's of Alabama hospital, UAB Department of Pediatrics, UAB School of Medicine, and UAB Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences (National Institutes of Health grant UL1TR001417). Finally, the AWAKEN study at The University of New Mexico was supported by the Clinical and Translational Science Center at The University of New Mexico (National Institutes of Health grant UL1TR001449) and by The University of Iowa Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (grant U54TR001356). The AWAKEN study investigators at the Canberra Hospital at the Australian National University Medical School were supported by the Canberra Hospital Private Practice Fund, and investigators at University of Virginia Children's Hospital were supported by a 100 Women Who Care Grant from the 100 Women Charitable Foundation. The funding sources for this study had no role in the design and conduct of the study; collection, management, analysis and interpretation of the data; preparation, review, or approval of the manuscript; and decision to submit the manuscript for publication.

Abstract

Objective This study aimed to evaluate the association between acute kidney injury (AKI) and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in infants born <32 weeks of gestational age (GA).

Study Design Present study is a secondary analysis of premature infants born at <32 weeks of GA in the Assessment of Worldwide Acute Kidney Injury Epidemiology in Neonates (AWAKEN) retrospective cohort (n = 546). We stratified by gestational age and used logistic regression to determine association between AKI and moderate or severe BPD/mortality.

Results Moderate or severe BPD occurred in 214 of 546 (39%) infants, while death occurred in 32 of 546 (6%); the composite of moderate or severe BPD/death occurred in 246 of 546 (45%). For infants born ≤29 weeks of gestation, the adjusted odds ratio (OR) of AKI and the primary outcome was 1.15 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.47–2.86; p = 0.76). Infants born between 29 and 32 weeks of gestation with AKI had four-fold higher odds of moderate or severe BPD/death that remained after controlling for multiple factors (adjusted OR = 4.21, 95% CI: 2.07–8.61; p < 0.001).

Conclusion Neonates born between 29 and 32 weeks who develop AKI had a higher likelihood of moderate or severe BPD/death than those without AKI. Further studies are needed to validate our findings and evaluate mechanisms of multiorgan injury.
