From: Early administration of levosimendan is associated with improved kidney function after cardiac surgery – a retrospective analysis

  Levo OR Levo ICU Pvalue

Preoperative creatinineplasma (mg/dl) 1.19 ± 0.37 1.13 ± 0.26 0.753
Preoperative eGFR (ml/min) 73 ± 23 73 ± 21 0.928
Preoperative diuretic treatment (%) 21.4 38.9 0.343
SAPS-II ICU admission 47 ± 17 44 ± 16 0.566
Incidence postoperative renal dysfunction (%) 67.9 94.4* 0.033
Duration of RRT (hours) 79 (35-332) 272* (132-703) 0.046
  1. Postoperative renal dysfunction is defined as a creatinine plasma level > 2.0 mg/dl. Data are expressed as mean ± SD, median and quartiles or percentage. *indicate significant differences between groups. Levo OR/Levo ICU, see text for further details; OR, operating room; ICU, intensive care unit; eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; RRT, renal replacement therapy.
