The authors report their experiences with the use of inosine in 14 patients who underwent renal surgery (9 bivalve nephrolithotomies, of which one on bench surgery; 1 pyelocalicolithotomy with multiple nephrotomies; 1 polar resection; 1 spleno-renal anastomosis; 1 substitution of the renal artery by hypogastric artery on bench surgery). The mechanism is discussed as well as the role of this drug in preserving the kidney by itself and/or associated with the perfusion of cooled hyperosmolar solutions and surface hypothermia. The importance of transfemoral infusion by a small balloon catheter is stressed.
