The Effect of Nicardipine on Kidney Function During Orthognathic Surgery Under Hypotensive Anesthesia

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01175746
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : August 5, 2010

Brief Summary:
Since nicardipine is known to protect kidney function, nicardipine infusion will result in better renal parameters measured in this study.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: nicardipine Drug: Nicardipine
Active Comparator: remifentanil Drug: remifentanil
0.1-0.5 ugkg/min during hypotensive anesthesia
Other Name: ultiva®

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Creatinine Clearance [ Time Frame: 2hr after the start of hypotensive anesthesia ]

    Hypotensive anesthesia means that we maintain the mean blood pressure between 55 & 65 mmHg during surgery to decrease the blood loss.

    The specific time point is exactly 2hr after we star to lower the blood pressure.
