    A case study is presented concerning a 69-year-old female with acute renal failure who received diuretic therapy and dopamine. Loop diuretics such as furosemide inhibit the reabsorption of sodium and chloride in the kidney, which leads to diuresis. The article also discusses the use of atrial...

    The objective of this study was to determine the risk factors of postoperative acute renal failure (ARF) in orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). We reviewed 184 consecutive OLT. Postoperative ARF was defined as a persistent rise of 50% increase or more of the S-creatinine (S-Cr). The patients...
