Abstract

Objective Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication after cardiac surgery and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a noninvasive technique for real-time measurement of cerebral tissue oxygenation. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the correlation of AKI with hemoglobin and regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rScO(2)) measured intraoperatively and postoperatively in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.
