Because the mortality rate is very low in thoracic surgery, its use as a quality discriminator is limited. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a candidate measure because it is associated with increased rates of morbidity and mortality and is partly preventable. The incidence of AKI after thoracic surgery is not well documented. We conducted an audit to determine the incidence and outcomes of AKI. This audit became a pilot project, and the results indicate the feasibility of a larger study.
