BACKGROUND This study aimed to quantify changes in acid-base balance, potassium and lactate levels as a function of administration of different crystalloid solutions during kidney transplantation, and to determine the ideal fluid for such patients. METHODS In this double-blind study, patients were randomized to three groups (n = 30 each) to receive either(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to present results of patients who have undergone renal transplantation concurrent with bilateral or unilateral native nephrectomy, with a special focus on polycystic kidney disease (PKD). MATERIAL AND METHODS We presented the outcome of renal transplantation patients who have undergone native nephrectomy unilaterally(More)
In this study, sevofluorane depth of anesthesia was examined through a microcontroller-based fuzzy logic control system according to the blood pressure and heart rate taken from the patient. The system was designed for anesthetic agent, sevofluorane, which is among the first choices of anesthesiologist for inhalation anesthesia. The potential benefits of(More)
Choice of the anesthestic technique can reduce or even eliminate stress responses to surgery and decrease the incidence of complications. Our aim was to compare a combination of epidural anesthesia+general anesthesia with general anesthesia alone as regards perioperative insulin resistance and inflammatory activation among renal transplant recipients.(More)
We investigated the anesthetic and analgesic effectiveness of adding dexamethasone to lidocaine for IV regional anesthesia (IVRA). Seventy-five patients undergoing ambulatory hand surgery were randomly assigned to one of three groups: group L received 3 mg/kg lidocaine, group LD received 3 mg/kg lidocaine + 8 mg dexamethasone, and group LDc received 3 mg/kg(More)
This was a single-centre, prospective study to assess the frequency of neurological complications and their impact on prolonged hospitalization in 137 liver transplant patients presenting between September 1997 and June 2010. Neurological complications were seen in 22 (16%) patients during their postoperative stay in the intensive care unit. Complications(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Previous studies in adults have demonstrated a clinically useful correlation between central venous pressure (CVP) and peripheral venous pressure (PVP). The current study prospectively compared CVP measurements from a central versus a peripheral catheter in kidney recipients during renal transplantation. METHODS With ethics(More)
The ideal reconstructive method for the palatal defect should provide durable, stable coverage, and a natural contour, while simultaneously minimizing morbidity of both the defect and donor sites. Although small and usual palatal defects can be repaired easily using local adjacent tissues, successful closure of large, complex defects is still a challenging(More)
INTRODUCTION The appropriate anesthesia for renal transplantation requires minimal toxicity for patients and for the transplanted organ, as well as sufficient pain relief and maintenance of vital functions. The aim of this study was to determine how the anesthetic technique influences the outcome in patients after renal transplantation in terms of(More)
