The impact of major perioperative renal insult on long-term renal function and survival after cardiac surgery.


Temporary renal replacement therapy (RRT) facilitates recovery from a major perioperative renal injury and, although RRT can improve the hospital outcome, it is not known as to whether it mitigates long-term renal sequelae.
