Remote ischemic preconditioning has a neutral effect on the incidence of kidney injury after coronary artery bypass graft surgery.

Abstract

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication of cardiac surgery and usually occurs in patients with preexisting chronic kidney disease (CKD). Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) may mitigate the renal ischemia-reperfusion injury associated with cardiac surgery and may be a preventive strategy for postsurgical AKI. We undertook a randomized… (More)
