This study investigated if already a minimal change of 0 to 0.3 mg/dl in postoperative serum creatinine values was associated with early death and long-term cardiovascular outcomes and death. From the SWEDEHEART registry, we included 25,686 patients who underwent elective, isolated, primary CABG in Sweden from 2000 to 2008. AKI was categorized according to increases in postoperative… CONTINUE READING
