Colloid-Induced Renal Complications

  • J.-F. Baron
Conference paper


Normovolemic hemodilution with colloids is recommended in a wide range of ischemic conditions, such as acute stroke, peripheral vascular disease, and hearing loss, to improve microcirculatory perfusion and collateral flow. Since these patients usually have generalized atherosclerosis, often with some degree of preexisting latent renal disease, it is not surprising that the colloids, albumin, dextran, and HES are occasionally associated with the development of acute renal failure, particularly if dosage recommendations are not followed [1]. Several publications have recently focused on another category of patients at risk, brain-dead donors for kidney transplantation [2].
