Dong et al developed a score to predict renal failure after surgery for Stanford type A dissection. This score includes age, BMI, white blood count, perioperative hemoglobin levels, CPB duration, and renal malperfusion. The score derives from a retrospective analysis of 326 patients from the author’s institution and validated in a group of more than 100 patients from a separate institution. The receiver operating curve proves a good prediction of perioperative renal failure by the new score.
