Tacrolimus is the cornerstone of immunosuppression following liver transplantation (OLT). However, this agent may cause hyperkalemia by multiple mechanisms affecting potassium in the distal tubule. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of fludrocortisone for the management of tacrolimus-induced hyperkalemia. Hospitalized adult OLT recipients who received fludrocortisone for tacrolimus-induced hyperkalemia were retrospectively identified. Change in serum potassium within 14 days… Expand

Hyponatraemia and hyperkalaemia are more frequent in renal transplant recipients treated with tacrolimus than with cyclosporin. Further evidence for differences between cyclosporin and tacrolimus nephrotoxicities.
