Renal failure: MDRD equation for estimating the glomerular filtration rate | ||||
DISEASE | INTERVENTION | COMPARISON | RESULTS | |
Ann Intern Med. 2006 Aug 15;145(4):247-54 | Cohorts | |||
IN kidney disease, chronic, glomerular filtration estimation |
The Use of
4-variable Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equation As Diagnostic Tool |
Is better Than
Cockcroft-Gault equation |
To estimate measured (125I-iothalamate) glomerular filtration rate with less than 30% error: 90% MDRD VS 60% Cockcroft VS 83% corrected Cockcroft | |

IN kidney disease, chronic, glomerular filtration estimation |
The Use of
Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equation As Diagnostic Tool |
Is equal Than
Cockcroft-Gault equation |
To estimate measured (inuline) glomerular filtration rate rate with less than 30% error: 69% MDRD equation VS 71% Cockcroft | |

IN kidney disease, chronic, glomerular filtration estimation, ill hospitalized patients |
The Use of
6-variable Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equation As Diagnostic Tool |
Is better Than
Cockcroft-Gault equation |
To estimate measured (125I-iothalamate) glomerular filtration rate with less than 50% error: 55% MDRD equation VS 40% Cockcroft. However, overall accuracy and precission of both equations in ill hospitalized patients was poor |
