BACKGROUND Laparoscopic living donor nephrectomy is increasingly being performed, although the effects of carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum (CO2 PP) on renal function and hemodynamics and the levels of vasopressin are not well studied. METHODS Renal blood flow, renal venous pressure, urine output, and vasopressin concentrations in renal venous blood were… CONTINUE READING
