Interventions for protecting renal function in the perioperative period
There is inconclusive evidence for benefits or increased harm on the use of various interventions (including dopamine and analogues, diuretics, ACE inhibitors, erythropoietin, intravenous fluid and atrial natriuretic peptide) for protecting renal function in the perioperative period for patients undergoing surgery. Also, many criteria used to diagnose acute renal damage suffered from low methodological quality.
There are various interventions used for protection of kidney function in persons undergoing surgery. The aim of the review was to determine the effectiveness of various interventions for protection of kidney function during the perioperative phase.
