Amelioration of the Ischemic Damage of the Dog Kidney Subjected to 90 Minutes of Warm Ischemia by Lidocaine Pretreatment and Low-Dose Dopamine Infusion on Revascularization
Impaired renal function due to ischemic injury is still a common clinical problem in cadaveric renal transplantation. Profound high hypotension in the donor and the warm ischemia of the kidney are inevitable in this situations when nephrectomy can be performed only at the time of cardiac arrest. Ischemic damage due to these preagnoal events together with inadequate blood flow through the kidney after transplantation lead to development of oliguria in the recipient. The incidents of this complication is ranging from 15 to 70 %.
