Renal resistivity index as a guide for treatment of severe postoperative renal failure in cardiac surgery: A case report

Abstract

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.
