Cardiac surgery associated-acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common and a serious complication of cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonary bypass and it is the second most common cause of AKI in intensive care unit. Recently, two consensus conferences have suggested new diagnostic criteria to define AKI and risk score to better identify patients who will develop AKI after cardiac surgery. In fact, prompt recognition of high-risk patients could allow a more aggressive management at a reversible stage of an incoming ARF. In this case report, we have discussed a case of 21-year-old patient with bicuspid aortic valve with severe aortic stenosis with ejection fraction 15% and left ventricle (LV) clot undergoing surgery for aortic valve replacement with LV clot removal. In the postoperative period, he developed AKI that was managed successfully by early intervention by slow low efficiency dialysis and diafiltration and hemodialysis and patient discharged successfully from hospital.
