UNLABELLED The effects of intravascular volume replacement regimens on tissue oxygen tension (ptiO(2)) are not definitely known. Forty-two consecutive patients scheduled for elective major abdominal surgery were prospectively randomized to receive either 6% hydroxyethyl starch (HES) (mean molecular weight 130 kd, degree of substitution 0.4, n = 21) or lactated Ringer's solution (RL, n = 21) for intravascular volume replacement. Fluids were administered perioperatively and continued for 24 h on… CONTINUE READING
