The effects of perioperative intravenous fluid administration strategy on renal outcomes in patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery: An observational study.
We assessed whether perioperative fluid management with balanced solutions and a limited volume of hydroxyethyl starch (renal-protective fluid management [RPF] strategy) could improve renal outcomes after cardiovascular surgery.
This paper aims to overview the current evidence regarding outcomes of terlipressin for the treatment of HRS.
Teenagers and young adults with nephropathic cystinosis display significant bone disease and cortical impairment.
