Abstract

Rhabdomyolysis is a clinical syndrome with significant morbidity and mortality that occurs as a result of traumatic and non-traumatic aetiologies. Acute kidney injury, the need for dialysis, and death, can occur due to rhabdomyolysis. This study explores the aetiologies, clinical outcomes and associated factors for poor outcomes in a cohort of patients with rhabdomyolysis in a tertiary trauma centre in Australia.
