Obstructive jaundice is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Major complications such as pulmonary dysfunction, renal failure and sepsis are frequently encountered. Recent studies and observations suggest that the free oxygen radicals (FORs) produced in obstructive jaundice may play a significant role in the etiopathogenesis of acute renal failure (ARF). Thirty rats were divided into three groups, as sham, control and treatment groups containing 10 rats each. Laparatomy was performed… CONTINUE READING
