Anesthetic preconditioning increases sirtuin 2 gene expression in a renal ischemia reperfusion injury model.

CONCLUSIONS: Anesthetic preconditioning is a promising strategy to prevent I-R injury associated with transplantation. Our results suggest that sirtuin 2 is involved in the protective mechanisms of some commonly used anesthetics against I-R damage. PMID: 31726818 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

RETROSPECTIVE EVALUATION OF ANESTHETIC TECHNIQUES IN PREGNANT WOMEN WITH RENAL TRANSPLANTATION. Turk J Med Sci. 2019 Oct 27;: Authors: Sargin A, Karaman S, Ceylan Ari Ş, Akdemir A, Hortu I Abstract OOBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate anesthesia management in cesarean operation of pregnant women undergone renal transplantation and their effects on postoperative renal function retrospectively. MATERIALS-METHODS: After obtaining the approval of the ethics committee of our hospital, the records of pregnant women who underwent kidney transplantation and cesarean section between 2007 and 2...

Robert Chelsea turned down the first face he was offered. It was a fine face, one that could have taken him off the transplant waiting list after just a couple months. But Chelsea—severely disfigured after a catastrophic car accident five years earlier—was in no hurry. He’d gotten used to tilting his head back so food and water wouldn’t fall out of his nearly lipless mouth. He knew how to respond compassionately to children who stared in shock and fear. The face, offered in May 2018, had belonged to a man with skin that was much fairer than what remained of Chelsea’s—so light that Chelse...

This study aimed to determine whether individualized goal-directed fluid therapy (IGDT) positively affects the initial renal function compared to a high-volume fluid therapy (HVFT) and to examine the effects on renal endothelial glycocalyx, inflammatory and oxidative stress markers, and medullary tissue oxygenation. The hypothesis was that IGDT improves early glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in pigs subjected to renal transplantation. METHODS: This was an experimental randomized study. Using a porcine renal transplantation model, animals were randomly assigned to receive IGDT or HVFT during and until 1 hour after tran...

CONCLUSION: Based on low or very low levels of evidence, we did not find any association between restrictive fluid management strategies and AKI, but we observed possible protective effects of intraoperative restrictive fluid management strategies on other outcomes. TRIAL REGISTRATION: PROSPERO (CRD42017054970); registered 18 May, 2017. PMID: 31556006 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions. The elevated baseline CVP, elevated baseline RVEDV after anesthesia induction, and decreased SvO2 during anhepatic phase were associated with postoperative AKI. Prospective trials are required to evaluate whether the optimization of these variables may decrease the risk of AKI after LDLT.

We report a case of extrahepatic biliary atresia with multiple anomalies involving the hepatic arteries, portal vein, cystic artery, arterioportal fistula and shunting, intrahepatic portal vein radicals, kidney, and external genitalia. The merits of the case from various standpoints including its implications for etiopathogenesis, caution during surgical anesthesia or postoperative management, and enrichment of the literature have been discussed.

Abstract Kidneys have an important role in regulating water volume, blood pressure, secretion of hormones and acid-base and electrolyte balance. Kidney dysfunction derived from acute injury can, under certain conditions, progress to chronic kidney disease. In the late stages of kidney disease, treatment is limited to replacement therapy: Dialysis and transplantation. After renal transplant, grafts suffer from activation of immune cells and generation of oxidant molecules. Anesthetic preconditioning has emerged as a promising strategy to ameliorate ischemia reperfusion injury. This review compiles some significant ...
