Prognostic value of tubular proteinuria and enzymuria in nonoliguric acute tubular necrosis.
BACKGROUND Acute tubular necrosis (ATN) has high mortality, especially in patients who require renal replacement therapy (RRT). We prospectively studied the diagnostic accuracy of the urinaryExpand

Silent and Apparent Cerebral Ischemia After Percutaneous Transfemoral Aortic Valve Implantation: A Diffusion-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
Background— The risk of stroke after transfemoral aortic valve implantation (TAVI) due to dislodgement and subsequent embolization of debris from aortic arch atheroma or from the calcified valveExpand

Protection by remote ischemic preconditioning during coronary artery bypass graft surgery with isoflurane but not propofol – a clinical trial
Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) of the myocardium by limb ischemia/reperfusion may mitigate cardiac damage, but its interaction with the anesthetic regimen is unknown. We tested whether RIPCExpand
