None of the patients suffered from extensive crush injuries with evidence of severe rhabdomyolysis and were treated by the induction of an alkaline solute diuresis immediately on their extrication from the debris, attribute this success to the unprecedented early institution of appropriate therapy.
Systemic hypotension and renal failure in obstructive jaundice-mechanistic and therapeutic aspects.
The scope of the clinical association between jaundice and renal failure is outlined and the institution of prophylactic measures based on the appreciation of the underlying pathogenic mechanisms may result in an improvement in the overall prognosis of jaundiced patients undergoing surgery.

Disturbed volume homeostasis in patients with cirrhosis of the liver.
The purpose of this communication is to critically analyze the current view of the mechanism of the circulatory impairment in cirrhosis to improve the management of patients with moderately advanced cirrhotic patients with ascites and renal sodium retention.
The crush syndrome revisited (1940-1990).

Preparation for future catastrophes occurring particularly in remote regions where an 'epidemic' of crush syndrome may be forecast, should include the setting up of a radio communications network to coordinate rescue and salvage operations and the forwarding of intravenous fluid bags and lines to the disaster site.
