Abstract

Background and purpose: Acute renal failure after cardiac surgery is a dangerous condition that �increases mortality and hospital costs. The present study aimed to evaluate the prevalence and associated �factors of acute renal failure in patients with open-heart surgery in Sari 2012.� Materials and methods: This cross-sectional study with available data was performed on 250 patients �who referred to cardiac surgery department in Fatima Zahra Hospital, Sari, Iran from April to March 2012. �Creatinine levels, before and 3 days after surgery and associated factors, were collected using demographic �and medical data list. After data collection their analysis was performed using Chi-square test, Mann-Whitney �and t-test.� Results: In this study, 58.8 of the patients were males and 41.2 were females. The mean age of �subjects was 60.75 ± 9.87. The most commonly associated disease was hypertension. The prevalence of renal �failure was 15 (in the first 48 hours after surgery). Results showed that age, history of hypertension and the �amount of intra operative blood transfusion have been correlated with acute renal failure.� Conclusion: In this study, acute renal failure after open-heart surgery was 15. This disorder can �cause problems for patients and their family and rise health care costs. The recognition of risk factors and �treatments are keys to reduce adverse outcomes.�
