Abstract
This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
This review aims to look at the evidence that supports the benefits of perioperative statins in prevention of AKI occurring in hospitalised adults after surgery requiring cardiac bypass. The main objectives are:
To determine whether statin use is associated with the prevention of development of AKI.
To determine whether the use of statins is associated with a reduction in in-hospital mortality.
To determine whether the use of statins is associated with a reduction in the need for renal replacement therapy.
To determine any adverse effects associated with the use of statins.
