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

This study has been completed.

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

Condition Intervention
Healthy Subjects Drug: Nicardipine Drug: remifentanil

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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.
