Prolonged curarisation following renal transplantation. A retrospective study

J M RouseD R Bevan


A retrospective study of postoperative respiratory morbidity in 247 patients requiring renal transplantation between 1955 and 1973 showed that 7 patients required postoperative controlled ventilation for up to 6 days. The nondepolarising relaxants tubocurarine and pancuronium were used in only 65 patients, but all 7 cases of respiratory failure occurred in this group. This suggests that the use of these drugsin anephric patients is potentially hazardous so far as postoperative respiratory insufficiency is concerned.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
