BACKGROUND: Kidney injury is common in patients who have undergone cardiac surgery, and it has high morbidity and mortality. The objective of the study was to identify pre-, intra-, and post-operative risk factors responsible for kidney injury among patients who had undergone cardiac surgery.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients (n=1468) who had undergone cardiac surgery were stratified into those with kidney injury (n=488) and those without kidney injury (n=980) using the KDIGO (Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes) criteria. Data of pre-, intra- and post-operative variables were collected and analyzed.

RESULTS: Acute kidney injury occurred in 33.2% of study patients. Patients with post-operative acute kidney injury had older age, comorbidities, higher preoperative serum creatinine, coronary artery bypass grafting, longer operation time, high cardiopulmonary bypass and cross-clamping time, low central venous pressure, and prolonged mechanical ventilation as compared to patients without kidney injury (P<0.05 for all). Age >65 years (OR 1.4), preoperative hypertension (OR 2.0), preoperative anemia (OR 2.3), preoperative low ejection fraction (OR 3.7), Charlson comorbidity index >2 (OR 2.5), longer cardiopulmonary bypass time (OR 4.0), blood transfusions (OR 2.1), postoperative hypotension (OR 5.2), and low central venous pressure (OR 8.1) were responsible for kidney injury. Mortality of patients with kidney injury was significantly higher than those without acute kidney injury (52 versus 1, P<0.001).

CONCLUSIONS: Appropriate and effective control of pre-, intra-, and post-operative variables can reduce the risk of kidney injury development in patients following cardiac surgeries.
