Ischemia/reperfusion (IR) injury is the major cause of early renal dysfunction and acute renal failure of the transplanted kidney after renal transplantation. In 1986, Murry et al. described the phenomenon "ischemic preconditioning". Also, it was reported that a few non-ischemic stimuli could provide cellular tolerance against major ischemia through a mechanism similar to ischemic preconditioning. In an animal study, 1 minimal alveolar concentration of volatile anesthetics - a clinically relevant concentration - was reported to have a protective effect against ischemia/reperfusion injury, the effect being variable between types of anesthetics. Also, there were somm reports that intravenous anesthetics such as propofol could reduce IR injury by decreasing oxidative stress and apoptosis.
By reducing the ischemia/reperfusion injury of the grafted kidney, the morbidity and mortality related to renal transplantation can be reduced as well. The objective of this study is to find out whether, according to the type of anesthetics (Desflurane vs. Propofol), there is a difference in the protective effect against ischemia/reperfusion injury of the grafted kidney in patients receiving renal transplantation.

Renal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R)-induced injury is known to be associated with immediate and long-term hepatic dysfunction after liver transplantation. Protecting the liver against I/R inj...
Evaluate the effect of propofol compared with desflurane on oxidative stress and inflammation markers in obese patients undergoing scheduled bariatric surgery.
Bispectral monitoring anesthesia with remifentanil-desflurane has a better post-operative recovery than remifentanil-propofol.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether propofol can improve quality of recovery compared to desflurane in patients undergoing robotic or laparoscopic gastrectomy.
The purpose of this study is to prove if anesthesia maintained with the inhaled volatile anesthetic desflurane is superior to the intravenously applied propofol anesthesia in off-pump coro...
Desflurane and propofol are cardioprotective, but relative efficacy is unclear. The aim was to compare myocardial protection of single, simultaneous, and serial administration of desflurane and propof...
To review the studies and practice guidelines on the preeclampsia risks in kidney donors and recipients.
Living kidney donors (LKD) for pediatric kidney transplant recipients (KTR) have a heightened motivation to donate for emotional reasons and the clear health benefits to the KTR. We hypothesized that ...
A recent study reported that kidney transplant recipients of offspring living donors had higher graft loss and mortality. This seemed counterintuitive, given the excellent HLA matching and younger age...
Little information exists on red blood cell (RBC) alloimmunization in healthy US blood donors, despite the potential significance for donors themselves, blood recipients, and the blood center.
Rare and often fatal drug complication which affects patients undergoing long-term treatment with high doses of PROPOFOL. It is characterized by METABOLIC ACIDOSIS; HYPERLIPIDEMIA; RHABDOMYOLYSIS; cardiovascular CIRCULATORY COLLAPSE; CARDIAC FAILURE; and KIDNEY FAILURE.
The procedure established to evaluate the health status and risk factors of the potential DONORS of biological materials. Donors are selected based on the principles that their health will not be compromised in the process, and the donated materials, such as TISSUES or organs, are safe for reuse in the recipients.
Non-cadaveric providers of organs for transplant to related or non-related recipients.
An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
Individuals supplying living tissue, organs, cells, blood or blood components for transfer or transplantation to histocompatible recipients.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
