Background: After heart surgery, acute kidney injury (AKI) confers substantial long-term risk of death and chronic kidney disease. We hypothesized that small changes in serum creatinine (SCr) levels measured within a few hours of exit from the operating room could help discriminate those at low versus high risk of AKI.
