Prevention of radiographic-contrast-agent-induced reductions in renal function by acetylcysteine.
BACKGROUND Radiographic contrast agents can cause a reduction in renal function that may be due to reactive oxygen species. Whether the reduction can be prevented by the administration ofExpand

Two Novel Equations to Estimate Kidney Function in Persons Aged 70 Years or Older
BACKGROUND In older adults, current equations to estimate glomerular filtration rate (GFR) are not validated and may misclassify elderly persons in terms of their stage of chronic kidney disease. Expand

Oscillometric estimation of central blood pressure: validation of the Mobil-O-Graph in comparison with the SphygmoCor device
BackgroundHypertension is a major risk factor for a wide range of cardiovascular diseases and is typically identified by measuring blood pressure (BP) at the brachial artery. Although such aExpand

Intraoperative assessment of kidney allograft perfusion by laser-assisted indocyanine green fluorescence videography.
BACKGROUND Kidney allograft function crucially depends on the quality of organ perfusion. Duplex sonography, however, frequently reveals hypoperfused segments that remained undetectable to visualExpand

Detection of Angiotensin II in Supernatants of Stimulated Mononuclear Leukocytes by Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight/Time-of-Flight Mass Analysis
Abstract—Angiotensin II (Ang II) is the major vasoactive component of the renin-angiotensin system. Several components of the renin-angiotensin system have been demonstrated in different tissues.Expand
