Hip fracture causes disability and excess mortality in the aging population. Acute kidney injury (AKI), is known to diminish survival of critically ill and trauma patients. AKI is also a common perioperative complication among surgical patients. We examined the effect of AKI on the survival of hip fracture patients in a Finnish hip fracture population and the risk factors for AKI in a prospective study.
