In this retrospective study we evaluated 64 patients with acute renal failure (ARF) for age, sex, etiology, renal failure index (RFI), fractional excretion of sodium (FENa), blood urea nitrogen (BUN)\ creatinine, the highest BUN value, rate of daily BUN increase in the pretreatment period; total protein, albumin levels in the pre and 15 th day of posttreatment period; duration of oliguria and polyuria, complications, need for dialysis and mortality rate. The complications were observed in 37 patients (50 %). Mortality rate was found to be 17.2 % In comparison of living and died groups, the mean age, RFI, FENa, rate of daily BUN increase, the mean duration of oliguria and need for dialysis in the group of the died patients were higher than that of the group of the living patients, whe.reas total protein and albumin levels (15th. posttreatment day), the mean duration of polyuria were lower. It was concluded that the factors which affect on the mortality rate include etiology, age, RFI, FENa, the rate of daily BUN increase, durations of oliguria and polyuria, if positive nitrogen balance ensures or not, and complications.
