    Author(s): Sankar TM*, Vasant PK and Gopalakrishna Pillai M

    Background: Acute Kidney injury is one of the most common and serious complications that can develop after cardiac surgeries. Currently serum creatinine is the gold standard for detecting AKI. But various other studies have shown that there is a delay in rise in serum creatinine following renal injury thereby causing delay in early diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Aim: This study evaluates role of Urine NGAL (Neutrophil Gelatinase Associated Lipocalin) in diagnosing AKI early after cardiac surgeries. Materials & Methods: We prospectively enrolled 57 adult patients admitted for various cardiac surgeries over a period of 2 years from 2018 to 2020. Preoperative (0 hour) and postoperative (4 hour) urine NGAL was measured using an Enzyme linked immune sorbent assay. Mean of 0 hour and 4 hour uNGAL levels in AKI group was compared w.. Read More»
