About twelve years ago, Scott et al. published a paper entiled: “Why the persistently high mortality in acute renal failure?” [1]. More recently, no important progresses have been made in treating established acute renal failure (ARF). Prevention then must remain the main endeavour of physicians taking care of gravely ill or injured patients.
