Abstract

Background: An acute kidney injury (AKI) is a recognized complication in patients with ST elevation

myocardial infarction (STEMI) by several mechanisms and it adversely affects morbidity and mortality on

long-term bases (1, 2, and 3). Few studies have investigated which patients with STEMI are at risk of developing

AKI (6), and this study is aiming to do this assessment.

Patients and Methods: We enrolled patients with STEMI who were admitted to the CCU. KDIGO

definitions was utilized to search for development of AKI in these patients throughout their stay in the

CCU (their baseline serum creatinine was measured and traced daily thereafter; and their urine output was

monitored). Common epidemiological and some relevant medical parameters were recorded for all patients.

Results and conclusion: low baseline systolic blood pressure, ejection fraction % and estimated glomerular

filtration rate (eGFR); in addition to use of diuretics; are the major risk factors for the development of AKI

in the setting of STEMI.
