Background: Acute kidney damage is a severe condition common in patients who have undergone heart surgery (catheterization) and secondary injury is also referred to as being synonymous with surgery. The goal of this research is to determine the rate of cyclooxygenase and hepcidin levels in patients with acute renal injury (AKI) following cardiac catheterization.

Methods: The study is performed on (81) patients (64 males and 17 females) aged 40-75 years. Data from most patients are reported in the form of age, gender, and smoking background questionnaire.

Results: The results indicate a significant increase in serum levels of cyclooxygenase and hepcidin levels in patients with severe renal insufficiency after cardiac catheterization by (79%) males versus (21%) females.

Conclusions: In this study, improved risk prediction could enhance patient monitoring and treatment after surgery, direct patient treatment and decision making, and enhance participation in AKI interventional trials.
