Evaluation of Cystatin C as a marker of renal injury following on-pump and off-pump coronary surgery.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: Cardiopulmonary bypass is regarded as an important contributor to renal injury, whereas off-pump surgery is considered less damaging. Cystatin C, a cystine protease inhibitor, is more sensitive and specific than creatinine in the assessment of renal function. We assessed the value of Cystatin C in quantifying clinical and subclinical renal injury following on-pump and off-pump cardiac surgery.
