Perioperative Fluid Management in Patients Receiving Cadaveric Renal Transplants
In this study we want to show that the choice of a balanced type fluid solution for the perioperative fluid management of patients receiving cadaveric renal transplantation results in less occurrence of intra- and postoperative hyperkalemia, and thus the need for postoperative dialysis. Additionally, we aim to determine whether the use of a balanced infusion solution leads to less occurrence of metabolic acidosis and electrolyte disorders than the use of isotonic saline.
Furthermore we want to evaluate whether perioperative fluid management with balanced infusion solutions results in a higher frequency of primary graft function than with administration of isotonic saline.
We will test the hypothesis that the use of "Elomel isoton"(Fresenius Kabi Austria GmbH) a balanced infusion solution will result in less occurrence of hyperkalemia and consequent post-transplant dialysis, less occurrence of metabolic acidosis, decreased incidence of electrolyte disorders and higher incidence of primary graft function when compared to isotonic saline for perioperative fluid management in patients receiving cadaveric renal transplantation.
