The Risk, Injury, Failure, Loss and ESRD (RIFLE) classification has been widely accepted for the definition of acute kidney injury (AKI); however, no study has described in detail the last two stages of the classification: "Loss" and "ESRD". We aim to describe and evaluate the development of "Loss" and "ESRD" in a group of critically ill patients.
