Objective: Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and subsequent renal failure are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the intensive care unit (ICU). In this study, it was planned to compare Neutrophil Gelatinase-associated Lipocalin (NGAL) and creatinine values in patients diagnosed with AKI and to determine the effect of renal dose dopamine use on renal blood flow, development of chronic renal failure (CRF) and mortality.
