Common risk factors in the development of acute tubular necrosis include any condition that lead to decreased renal perfusion such as recent abdominal and cardiac surgery, marked hypovolemia, sepsis, hemorrhagic shock, severe pancreatitis, and diabetes mellitus. Nephrotoxic medications ( eg, ACE inhibitors, NSAIDs, aminoglycosides, radio contrast media) can also be a risk for developing acute tubular necrosis.
