Cardiac surgery using CPB leads to changes in plasma and urinary cytokine homeostasis that correlate with renal proximal tubular dysfunction. This dysfunction may be related to the renal filtration of proinflammatory mediators. Renal autoprotective mechanisms may involve the intrarenal generation of antiinflammatory cytokines.
