Administration of Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) Protects the Renal Microcirculation From Ischemia and Reperfusion Injury.


BACKGROUND Abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery with suprarenal cross-clamping is often associated with renal injury. Although the mechanism underlying such injury is unclear, tissue ischemia and reperfusion, which induces endothelial dysfunction and decreases the availability of tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4), may play a role. We evaluated whether BH4… (More)
