BACKGROUND Interest in perioperative fluid restriction has increased, but it could lead to hypovolaemia. Urine output is viewed as a surrogate for renal perfusion and is frequently used to guide perioperative fluid therapy. However, the rationale behind targeting oliguria reversal – achieving and maintaining urine output above a previously defined threshold by additional fluid boluses – is often questioned. OBJECTIVE We assessed whether restrictive fluid management had an effect on oliguria… 

Targeting urine output and 30-day mortality in goal-directed therapy: a systematic review with meta-analysis and meta-regression

There is insufficient evidence to associate targeting urine output with an effect on 30-day mortality, and the paucity of direct data illustrates the need for further research on whether permissive oliguria should be a key component of fluid management protocols.

Contemporary Approaches to Perioperative IV Fluid Therapy

There is good evidence supporting the avoidance of unnecessary fasting and the value of an individualized perioperative IV fluid regimen, with transition to oral fluids as soon as possible, to help patients recover from major surgery.

Impact of intra-operative fluid and noradrenaline administration on early postoperative renal function after cystectomy and urinary diversion: A retrospective observational cohort study

A too restrictive approach to administration of crystalloids was associated with an increased risk for AKI, particularly in older patients, those receiving antihypertensive medication, and those whose surgery was prolonged.

Hemodynamically stable oliguric patients usually do not respond to fluid challenge

After achieving hemodynamic stability, oliguric patients did not increase urine output after a fluid challenge, suggesting that volume replacement to correct oliguria in patients without obvious hypovolemia should be done with caution.

Role of intraoperative oliguria in risk stratification for postoperative acute kidney injury in patients undergoing colorectal surgery with an enhanced recovery protocol: A propensity score matching analysis

Despite the proven benefits of perioperative care with the ERAS protocol, caution is required in patients with intraoperative oliguria to prevent postoperative AKI, and further studies regarding appropriate management of intraoper oliguria in association with long-term prognosis are needed.

Perioperative Intravenous Fluid Therapy in ERAS Pathways

The aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of the evidence with particular relevance to the published consensus statements and guidance specific to the perioperative infusion of intravenous fluid as part of an ERAS pathway that thoroughly outline the evidence.

Fluid Therapy in Thoracic Surgery: A Zero-Balance Target is Always Best!

Flood composition deserves consideration since saline infusion exceeding 1.5-2L may cause hyperchloremic acidosis and colloids have been incriminated in renal damage when given in septic, trauma or other critically-ill patients.



Perioperative Fluid Restriction in Major Abdominal Surgery: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Randomized, Clinical Trials

Perioperative fluid restriction does not significantly reduce the risk of complications following major abdominal surgery and does not appear to reduce length of hospital stay.

Perioperative Fluid Management Strategies in Major Surgery: A Stratified Meta-Analysis

Perioperative outcomes favored a GD therapy rather than liberal fluid therapy without hemodynamic goals, and whether GD therapy is superior to a restrictive fluid strategy remains uncertain.

Clinical review: Volume of fluid resuscitation and the incidence of acute kidney injury - a systematic review

GDT-based FR may decrease AKI in surgical patients; however, this effect requires little overall FR and appears most effective when supported by inotropic drugs.

Liberal or restrictive fluid administration in fast-track colonic surgery: a randomized, double-blind study.

A 'restrictive' fluid regimen led to a transient improvement in pulmonary function and postoperative hypoxaemia but no other differences in all-over physiological recovery compared with a 'liberal' [corrected] fluid regimen after fast-track colonic surgery.

Conservative vs restrictive individualized goal-directed fluid replacement strategy in major abdominal surgery: A prospective randomized trial.

Excessive fluid restriction increased the level of hypovolemia, leading to reduced Scvo₂ and thereby increased incidence of postoperative complications, and should be applied cautiously in surgical patients.

A meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials of intravenous fluid therapy in major elective open abdominal surgery: getting the balance right

A meta-analysis of nine RCT on primarily crystalloid-based peri-operative intravenous fluid therapy in 801 patients undergoing elective open abdominal surgery found there was no apparent difference between the effects of fluid-restricted and standard or liberal fluid regimens on outcome.

Restrictive strategy of intraoperative fluid maintenance during optimization of oxygen delivery decreases major complications after high-risk surgery

A restrictive strategy of fluid maintenance during optimization of oxygen delivery reduces major complications in older patients with coexistent pathologies who undergo major surgery.

Effect of Intraoperative Fluid Management on Outcome after Intraabdominal Surgery

In patients undergoing elective intraabdominal surgery, intraoperative use of restrictive fluid management may be advantageous because it reduces postoperative morbidity and shortens hospital stay.

A positive fluid balance is associated with a worse outcome in patients with acute renal failure

In this large European multicenter study, a positive fluid balance was an important factor associated with increased 60-day mortality, and among patients treated with RRT, length of stay and mortality were lower when RRT was started early in the course of the ICU stay.
