Abstract

Acute kidney damage is a severe condition common in patients who have undergone heart surgery
(catheterization) and secondary injury is also referred to as being synonymous with surgery. The goal of
this research is to determine the rate ofinterleukin-6 (IL-6) and fatty acid-related protein (FABP) in patients
with acute renal injury (AKI) following cardiac catheterization. The study is performed on (81) patients (64
males and 17 females) aged 40-75 years. Data from most patients are reported in the form of age, gender
and smoking background questionnaire. The results indicate a significant increase in serum levels of IL-6
and FABP in patients with severe renal insufficiency after cardiac catheterization by (79%) males versus
(21%) females. In this study, improved risk prediction could enhance patient monitoring and treatment after
surgery, direct patient treatment and decision making, and enhance participation in AKI interventional trials.
