[Renal hypothermia in situ. Comparison between surface and perfusion cooling concerning renal function in pigs (author's transl)].


There are 2 competing methods for cooling the kidney in situ during surgical ischemia: from without by applying ice to the renal surface and from within by perfusing the renal artery. The latter procedure is said to be superior in protecting renal function. Herein the protective effect on renal function of both methods are compared. Pigs of 15--25 kg weight… (More)
