Acute renal failure is a known complication of cardiovascular surgery and is associated with a high mortality. Therapy should be aimed at prevention of oliguric renal failure, or at least its conversion to nonoliguric renal failure. Once renal failure is established, early dialysis with nutritional support probably gives the best chance for survival.
