Renal replacement need after cardiac surgery hikes death risk
from Renal & Urology News
Patients who require renal replacement therapy (RRT) after cardiac surgery are at increased risk of death, independent of other factors, according to a new study. Charat Thongprayoon, MD, and colleagues at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., compared with 202 patients who experienced acute kidney injury and required RRT within 30 days after cardiac surgery (cases) with an age- and sex-matched control group of 404 patients who underwent cardiac surgery but did not require RRT post-operatively.
