Context: Cardiac surgery. Objective: To compare plasma and urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (P-/U-NGAL) in on-pump (n = 43) versus off-pump (n = 40) surgery. Materials and methods: We obtained perioperative P-/U-NGAL and outcome data. Results: P-/U-NGAL increased after surgery. P-NGAL was higher post-surgery in on pump patients (139 versus 67 mu g L-1; p<0.001), but not at 24 h. There were no differences in U-NGAL. Correlation between P-/U-NGAL and plasma creatinine was weak. Discussion: P-NGAL acts like a neutrophil activation biomarker and U-NGAL like a tubular injury marker. Conclusion: On-pump patients had greater neutrophil activation. On-versus off-pump surgery had similar impact on tubular cells.
