Abstract

Renal Resistivity Index as a Guide for Treatment of Severe Postoperative Renal Failure in Cardiac Surgery: A Case Report

Massimo Meco and Enrico Giustiniano

We report a case of postoperative renal failure in a patient submitted to cardiac surgery operation. Usually we adopt the renal resistivity index as a guide for the treatment, particularly about the titration of vasoactive drugs. We consider that renal resistivity index may be a simple and safe support for therapy-guiding in this kind of patients.
