ABSTRACT
Background: The aim of this retrospective study is to determine the correlation between preoperative CRP levels and the early renal dysfunction after cardiac surgery. Methods: From January 2012 to December 2013, values for preoperative CRP were available for 546 unselected patients undergoing cardiac operations. CRP was used to divide this cohort in two groups: a normal CRP levels group (Group I) of 432 patients with CRP of less than 0.5 mg/dL, and a high CRP levels group (group II) of 114 patients with a CRP of 0.5 mg/dL or more. Results: Median CRP preoperative values were significantly different in the group II (2.49±1.03 mg/dL) than in the group I (0.32±0.14 mg/dL; P < 0.0001). Median CRP postoperative values were significantly different in the group I (17.62±2.99) than in the group II (23.13±3.01; P < 0.0001). Preoperative levels of serum blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine and CrCl were not significantly different between group I and group II. Postoperative levels of BUN, Cr and CrCl between the two groups were not significantly different. Conclusions: The early Cr and CrCl levels after surgery are not significantly different in group I and group II. The early renal function after CABG is not correlated with the preoperative CRP levels.
