PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of N-acetylcysteine, as a renoprotective agent, when administered early after anesthesia induction, against ischemia/reperfusion injury in rats anesthetized with isoflurane. METHODS Eighteen male Wistar rats weighing > 300 g were anesthetized with isoflurane. The internal jugular vein and the left carotid artery were(More)
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE The significant relationship between upper abdominal surgery and early (perioperative) pulmonary events was investigated among patients with preoperative pulmonary conditions undergoing general anesthesia. DESIGN AND SETTING Retrospective study for which data were obtained prospectively from 1999 to 2004, at a tertiary university(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare cystatin C versus creatinine as a marker for acute kidney injury in patients submitted to cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. METHODS Fifty consecutive patients submitted to coronary artery bypass grafting were studied. Renal function was evaluated by serum cystatin C and creatinine. Blood samples(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this investigation was to examine the effect of isoflurane, remifentanil, and preconditioning in renal ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI). METHODS All 52 male Wistar rats were anesthetized with isoflurane, intubated and mechanically ventilated. The animals were randomly divided into: S group (sham; n = 11) that underwent only(More)
The smaller volemic state from hypertonic (7.5%) saline (HS) solution administration in hemorrhagic shock can determine lesser systemic oxygen delivery and tissue oxygenation than conventional plasma expanders. In a model of hemorrhagic shock in dogs, we studied the systemic and gastrointestinal oxygenation effects of HS and hyperoncotic (6%) dextran-70 in(More)
PURPOSE To study the effect of isoflurane (Iso) or propofol (Prop) anesthesia on renal ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI) during transient hyperglycemia. METHODS Thirty six rats were randomly assigned into six groups of six animals each: PHS ( + of glucose solution administered intraperitoneally); HIS(More)
Our aim was to compare peri-operative core temperatures and the incidence of hypothermia in obese and non-obese women with active forced-air warming. Twenty female patients scheduled for abdominal surgery were allocated to two groups according to body mass index. Ten obese (30.0-34.9 kg.m(-2) ) and 10 non-obese (18.5-24.9 kg.m(-2) ) women received(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperglycemia is associated with a decreased tolerance to ischemia and an increased severity of renal ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury. It has been suggested that erythropoietin (EPO) attenuates this effect in normoglycemic animals. This study sought to examine the effects of EPO on treatment renal I/R injury (IRI) in transiently hyperglycemic(More)
An intravenous infusion of dopamine at 2.5 microgram/kg/min was administered for 40 minutes to anesthetized cardiac surgical patients, and their renal function was measured. Five patients had the usual preoperative regimen of reduced fluid intake for the night and morning before surgery (nonhydrated), and five patients received normal saline, 2 mL/kg/hr(More)
PURPOSE To investigate blood creatinine and renal histology in rats anesthetized with S(+)-ketamine (keta) or dexmedetomidine (dex) and submitted to kidney ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI). METHODS Under intraperitoneal (ip) S(+)-ketamine, 20 male Wistar rats were divided into two groups (n=10): maintenance with iv S(+)-ketamine or dex (keta and dex(More)
