Most epidemiologic data, thus far, have focused on short-term outcomes of acute kidney injury (AKI). Lo et al. correlate AKI with long-term outcomes. The concept of uremic memory sheds light on the importance of AKI and its permanent imprint. The focus of research should be on prevention of an episode of AKI, when possible.
