Mannitol aki cardiac surgery

Yasuhisa Okamoto, Tosihiro Nohmi, Koichiro Seki, Yuki Higa
Chronic renal failure (CRF) is related to cardiac diseases. Cardiac surgery is also related to postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI). It means heart and kidney have close relationship. We analyzed recent published data to understand how to manage CRF patients undergoing cardiovascular surgeries. We compared endovascular surgery and open procedure for aortic aneurysm, especially about contrast media-related renal damage, On or Off CABG or PCI for ischemic heart disease. We also discussed the relation between cardiopulmonary bypass and AKI and the risk factors causing AKI after CPB...

INTRODUCTION: Acute kidney injury (AKI), which is a major complication after cardiovascular surgery, is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Diuretic agents are frequently used to improve urine output and to facilitate fluid management in these patients. Mannitol, an osmotic diuretic, is used in the perioperative setting in the belief that it exerts reno-protective properties. In a recent study on uncomplicated postcardiac-surgery patients with normal renal function, mannitol increased glomerular filtration rate (GFR), possibly by a deswelling effect on tubular cells...

BACKGROUND: Surgery of skull base meningiomas by the lateral supraorbital (LSO) approach requires relaxed brain. Therefore, we assessed combined effects of the elements of neuroanesthesia on neurosurgical conditions during craniotomy. METHODS: The anesthesiological and surgical charts of 66 olfactory groove, 73 anterior clinoidal, and 52 tuberculum sellae meningioma patients operated on by the senior author (J.H.) at the Department of Neurosurgery of Helsinki University Central Hospital, Helsinki, Finland, between September 1997 and August 2010, were retrospectively analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence and risk factors associated with acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients after cardiac surgery with extracorporeal circulation. METHODS: A retrospective case control study was done in patients who underwent cardiac surgery from 2003 to 2007 in Second Xiangya Hospital, with 340 patients in an AKI group and the other 4 760 patients without AKI as a control group. All variables were analyzed by univariate analysis, Mann-Whitney U test and logistic regression...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent and severe disorder that is observed in a variety of clinical settings. Early recognition of this syndrome is of critical importance in order to prevent progression to more severe forms, which are associated with a higher risk of complications and death. Efforts to prevent AKI have been made through a variety of interventions and drugs. However, no benefit has been demonstrated to date except for volume expansion and avoidance of nephrotoxic drugs. Diuretics have been extensively studied because of their main pharmacokinetic actions: reduction of renal vascular resistance and inhibition of active transport in the thick ascending limb, which reduces the energy requirement and eventually protects cells under ischemic conditions...
