Outcomes after acute kidney injury are affected by both the severity and the duration of the insult. Patients with persistent acute kidney injury have higher major adverse kidney events, including 90-day mortality, renal replacement therapy, and persistent kidney dysfunction. Methods to identify these patients are urgently needed to improve outcomes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether biomarkers, including C-C motif chemokine ligand 14, were able to predict persistent acute kidney injury and major adverse kidney events after cardiac surgery.
