ON THE COVER:
Acute kidney injury (AKI) remains a major cause of postoperative morbidity and patients with preoperative hypoalbuminemia may be at higher risk. In this issue of Anesthesiology, Lee and colleagues demonstrate that immediate preoperative administration of 20% albumin solution reduced the incidence of AKI after off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery.
