This construct implies that restoration of adequate renal blood flow should therefore be the primary means of renal protection in critically ill patients. Whether, in presence of a normal or increased cardiac output, renal blood flow (RBF) actually decreases significantly or remains stable or even increases, however, remains controversial and not well studied. Accordingly, the dogma that most AKI (septic or otherwise) is ‘ischemic’ remains inadequately tested. In several experimental studies of septic ARF, global renal blood flow declines after induction of sepsis or endotoxemia [8, 9].

4% for those with contrast-induced AKI not requiring dialysis [23]. In patients undergoing primary PCI for myocardial infarction (MI), contrast-induced AKI is independently associated with short- and long-term mortality rates and were also significantly higher in those who developed contrast-induced AKI [24–26]. As well as an increased risk of death, contrast-induced AKI is also associated with other adverse outcomes including late cardiovascular events after PCI. In one registry of 5,967 PCI patients, the development of contrastinduced AKI was associated with an increased incidence of MI and target vessel revascularization at 1 year [26].
