Association of Prescription of Oral Sodium Polystyrene Sulfonate With Sorbitol in an Inpatient Setting With Colonic Necrosis: A Retrospective Cohort Study
American Journal of Kidney Diseases, 06/14/2012

Multivariate analysis would require retrospective clinical cohorts from larger or more than one hospital system(s).
