Abstract

We read with interest the revised consensus recommendations for management of acute kidney injury (AKI) ) in cirrhosis by the International Club of Ascites.1 We are concerned that plasma volume expansion only with albumin is recommended for stage 2 and 3 AKI and do not believe that this represents a balanced view of the available evidence. No one doubts that fluid resuscitation is an integral part of the management of AKI; however, studies to date have not established class 1 evidence for an advantage of the use of albumin over other colloids or crystalloids.
