The need for dialysis therapy occurs in approximately 1% of patients [1–3], and the development of renal failure is associated with high mortality. Numerous variables have been identified as risk factors for the development of AKI in this setting, including age, male gender, diabetes, New York Heart Association class, peripheral vascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic kidney disease, hypotension during surgery, use of vasoactive drugs, duration of cardiopulmonary bypass, and aortic clamping [4, 5].
