Issue Date: Oct-2015
Abstract: Remote ischemic condition describes a phenomenon in which one or more brief cycles of non-lethal ischemia and reperfusion to an organ protects a remote organ from sustained ischemic injury. Findings of recent randomized controlled trials (RCTs) into the effect of RIC on the kidney are inconsistent. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of all eligible RCTs of RIC with acute kidney injury as the primary outcome. Secondary outcomes were the incidence of renal replacement therapy (RRT), estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), serum creatinine (Scr) and mortality. Remote Ischemic conditioning may provide a degree of kidney protection. However, based on our findings large prospective RCTs focusing on RIC for kidney protection appear warranted.
