Outcomes in patients with normal serum creatinine and with artificial renal support for acute renal failure developing after coronary artery bypass grafting

Am J Cardiol. 2004 Feb 1;93(3):353-6. doi: 10.1016/j.amjcard.2003.10.020.


This retrospective study of cardiac surgical patients with normal serum creatinine who developed acute renal failure requiring artificial renal support was undertaken to (1) determine the prevalence of acute renal failure and hospital mortality in this subgroup, (2) identify the independent predictors of early mortality, and (3) determine long-term survival and prognosis.
