UNLABELLED Fenoldopam is a selective DA1 agonist with potential nephroprotective capabilities. The aim of this study was to compare the nephroprotective effect of fenoldopam and dopamine during general anesthesia for living donor kidney transplantation. METHODS Forty donors enrolled in the study received a similar anesthetic and fluid protocol. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Rhabdomyolysis is a severe and debilitating condition that promotes muscle breakdown and is a relatively rare, not always diagnosed cause of acute renal failure (ARF) with an 8-20% reported incidence.

BACKGROUND Aspergillosis and other invasive mold infections are severe complications in immunosuppressed patients, and in renal transplant patients it is the most common cause of systemic fungal disease with an incidence ranging from 0.4% to 2.4% with a high mortality of 56% to 100%. We present our experience with voriconazole in a population of kidney(More)
BACKGROUND Dual kidney transplantation (DKT) offers a safe way to face the organ shortage with good short-term and medium-term renal function. However, its application is limited by the longer operating time and the risk of surgical complication. This study reviews our results with DKT performed with an ipsilateral technique in terms of graft loss, graft(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of an analgesic regimen based on levobupivacaine continuous infusion into the surgical wound of living kidney donors (LKDs). PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty adult LKDs (mean age, 53.1 +/- 5.3 years; age range, 52-68 years) were retrospectively assigned to a no wound infusion (NWI) group (n =(More)
Fabry's Disease is a rare genetic syndrome, with a classic X-linked alpha -galactosidase A deficiency phenotype, responsible for glico-sphyngolypids metabolism impairment with clinical effects in several organs and functions. We describe the anaesthesiologic implications of two patients with Fabry disease who underwent a kidney transplantation from a(More)
Background The gallbladder stone is 20-40% of geriatric diseases. In elderly patients with limited cardiac reserve the pneumoperitoneum determines dangerous alterations of the cardiac output and other hemodynamic variables. The frequent co-morbidity in elderly people leads to a severe prognosis in these patients with surgical high mortality and morbidity(More)
