Cockcroft-Gault (CG) equation In 1976 the original Cockcroft-Gault (CG) equation estimated the creatinine clearance (not mGFR using a gold standard method).
Cystatin C is considered equivalent or even superior to other renal markers such as creatinine or creatinine-based estimations of GFR by the Cockcroft-Gault equation (C-G) (6) or the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease equation (MDRD) (1, 3, 4, 7-10).
To examine the indications for requesting CrCl at Tygerberg Hospital, identify problems associated with the procedure, and evaluate the utility of the Cockcroft-Gault (CG) and Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equations with different levels of renal dysfunction in the ethnic groups of the Western Cape.
Patients with a cardiovascular event had a mean serum creatinine level of 101, compared with 88 micromol/L in the unaffected group; GFR as measured using the Cockcroft-Gault (CG) formula was 63 vs.
Reduced renal function can also be assessed with creatinine-based formulae such as the Cockcroft-Gault formula (5), which calculates creatinine clearance rate in mL/min, or the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD)  formula, which calculates glomerular filtration rate in mL/min/1.
