  1. 1. Cardiac surgery and the kidney - studies on the effects of pharmacological interventions on renal perfusion, filtration and oxygenation

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Gudrun Bragadottir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kidney failure; acute; glomerular filtration rate; renal circulation; oxygen consumption; cardiac surgery; vasopressin; mannitol; levosimendan; estimating equations;

    Abstract : Acute kidney injury (AKI) commonly complicates cardiac surgery and is associated with high mortality. Renal ischemia is considered to be the major cause. There is a close association between glomerular filtration rate (GFR), tubular sodium reabsorption and renal oxygen consumption (RVO2) in humans. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental acute ischemic renal failure and anticoagulation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Henrik Druid; Olof Hellberg; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on experimental studies on acute renal failure (ARF) in rats. The model employed is that of renal artery clamping, which causes a standardized, ischemic trauma to the kidney. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Role of Angiotensin II in Experimental Acute Kidney Injury and Cardiorenal Failure

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sofia Jönsson; Michael Hultström; Helle Prætorius Øhrwald; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heart failure; Acute kidney injury; Angiotensin II; Fluid balance; Cardiac function; Renal function;

    Abstract : Blood pressure and fluid regulation are kept constant through the interaction between heart and kidneys. When the systemic blood pressure decreases, the levels of the hormone Angiotensin II increase, leading to vasoconstriction and therefore increased blood pressure. READ MORE
