Abstract
Post-operative renal dysfunction after cardiac surgery is not uncommon and can lead to adverse outcome. The ability to accurately monitor renal function is therefore important. Cystatin C is known to be a sensitive marker of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), but it has not been fully evaluated in cardiac surgery. Iohexol clearance is considered a reliable reference method for the determination of GFR. The aim of this study is to, for the first time, evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of plasma cystatin C compared with iohexol clearance in cardiac surgery.
