Acute kidney injury is considered by a sudden regression in kidney function, following an incapability to secrete waste products and to keep electrolyte and water balance. This condition is related to high risks of morbidity and death. Kidney improvement was described as a decrease in a serum creatinine level to the normal value. The renin–angiotensin system inhibition will innately diminish excretory function in situations that intrarenal perfusion pressure is disturbed. Surprisingly, such a lessening in excretory work does not essentially accompany by any further injury, while lower intra-glomerular capillary pressures has not been associated with any particular morphological lesion. Pre-renal success has been designated for this contradistinction condition to the countering the diagnosis of ‘pre-renal insufficiency’. In fact the term of ‘pre-renal’ notifies that the enhanced serum creatinine follows from hemodynamic derangements, and the term ‘success’ emphasizes the fact that the long-standing outcome is approximately suitable.
