Abstract

Objectives: Norepinephrine use in patients after cardiac surgery is controversial because of the fear that norepinephrine might decrease kidney function through regional vasoconstriction. Accordingly, we studied the renal effects of norepinephrine use for hypotensive vasodilatation after cardiac surgery. Design and setting: Retrospective controlled study in the cardiothoracic ICU of tertiary hospital. Patients: 100 cardiac surgery patients with post-operative hypotensive vasodilatation and 100 control cardiac surgery patients. Intervention: Treatment of hypotension (MAP
