Acetazolamide and Hydrochlorothiazide Followed by Furosemide Versus Furosemide and Hydrochlorothiazide Followed by Furosemide for the Treatment of Adults With Nephrotic Edema: A Randomized Trial.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Nephrotic edema is considered refractory if it does not respond to maximum or near-maximum doses of loop diuretics. This condition can be treated with loop diuretics and thiazides.
