3 Definition of CRF Chronic renal failure is a decline in the glomerular filteration rate secondary to various diseases such as diabetes, glomerulonephritis and PCKD Stages of CRF (National Kidney foundation Staging System): Stage 1 kidney damage with normal or increased GFR (>90 ml/min/1.73 m2 Stage 2 Mild (GFR of 60-89 ml/min/1.73 m2 ) Stage 3 Moderate (GFR of 30-59 ml/min/1.73 m2 ) Stage 4 Severe (GFR of 15-29 ml/min/1.73 m2 ) Stage 5 ESRD (GFR of <15 ml/min/1.73 m2 ) or on dialysis

4 Causes of chronic renal failure

5 Common causes of CRF Diabetes Mellitus (40%) Hypertension (27%) Chronic Glomerulonephritis (13%) Cystic Kidney Disease (3.5%) Interstitial nephritis (4%) Others (obstructive uropathy, lupus nephritis, HIV)

6 Pathophysiology of CRF And its implications for anaesthetist

10 Key peri-operative issues

11 Remember in Peri-operative work-up Anaemia Platelet dysfunction Coronary artery disease Metabolic acidosis Hypervolemia/CHF Electrolyte imbalance Immunosupression Neuropathy Gastroparesis

12 Hematologic issues in CRF ANAEMIA CAUSES: Chronic blood loss Hemolysis Marrow supression by uremic factors Reduced erythropoetin production Aluminium toxicity Chronic infection Bone marrow fibrosis due to hyperparathyroidism Anaesthetic Implications: Decreased oxygen delivery Increased cardiac output Cardiac enlargement Angina CHF Impaired mental acquity Impaired host defence against infection

13 Increased 2,3 DPG levels (chronic adaptation). Oxy-Hb dissociation curve shifted to right Routine transfusions- sensitisation to HLA antigens Erythropoetin therapy – target hematocrit 36 –40% Intraoperative transfusion – packed cells, washed RBCs (irradiated and CMV negetive) for hypotension, hcrit < 15% Patients with ESRD on hemodialysis require Hb levels 11-12 g/dl

14 Hematologic issues in CRF Coagulation abnormality CAUSES: Decreased platelet factor III Abnormal platelet aggregation and adhesion Impaired prothrombin consumption Anaesthetic Implications: Regional anaesthesia: Weigh the risk vs benefit of epidural placement in uremia patients Thromboembolic complications CAUSES: Urinary loss of antithrombin Decreased levels of protein C and S Hyperfibrinogenemia Impaired fibrinolysis Increased platelet aggregability Seen in patients with nephrotic syndrome

15 Hyperkalemia Serum potassium > 5.5 mEq/L Impaired renal excretion in CRF Peri-operative aggrevating factors: -Hemolysis -Hemorrhage -Massive blood transfusion -Metabolic acidosis (every 0.1 unit change in blood pH  increase K+ by 0.6 mEq/L -Rhabdomyolysis -Succinylcholine -Beta blockers, ACE inhibitors

16 ECG findings in hyperkalemia Serum Potassium ECG changes 6-7 mEq/L 7-8 mEq/L 8-10 mEq/L >9 mEq/L Tall T waves loss of P wave Wide QRS QRS merges T (sine waves) AV dissociation, VT,VF, cardiac arrest

17 Treatment of hyperkalemia Antagonism of membrane effects of hyperkalemia Calcium gluconate – -10 ml of 10% solution over 5-10 min -Dose can be repeated if no change in ECG after 5-10 min -decreases membrane excitability -Can exacerbate digitalis induced arrythmia  calcium gluconate given in 100 ml D5% over 20-30 min.

18 Treatment of hyperkalemia Potassium movement into the cells Insulin and glucose – - 25 to 50 gram glucose with 10-20 units of regular insulin @ 100 ml/hr -Insulin shifts potassium into the cells -Onset in 15 min,peak in 60 min,duration 4-6 hr. -Decreases potassium levels by 0.5 to 1.5mEq/L Sodium bicarbonate infusion- -Most useful in metabolic acidosis with hyperkalemia -Watch for sodium overload and volume expansion in CRF

19 Treatment of hyperkalemia Potassium movement into the cells Beta adrenergic agonists -20 mg in 4ml saline nebulisation over 10 min / 0.5 mg iv -shifts potassium into the cells -Onset in 30-60 min, duration 2-4 hr. -Decreases potassium levels by 0.5 to 1.5mEq/L Loop diuretics -Furosemide 20-40 mg iv

20 Metabolic Acidosis Mild to moderate acidosis - GFR less than 20-25% of normal pH> 7.2 with plasma bicarbonate 12- 22 mEq/L bicarbonate correction - based on space of distribution of bicarbonate  70% lean body weight with target bicarbonate level of 24 mEq/L Bicarbonate replacement = 0.7 x wt(kg) x (24 – serum bicarbonate)  half corrected If pH<7.2  dialysis

21 Effect on commonly used anaesthetic drugs

22 Effect of ESRD on anaesthetic drug metabolism Pharmacokinetics Absorption - affecting by delayed gastric emptying Distribution – volume of distribution is increased or decreased depending on total body water, protein binding and time since last dialysis Elimination – prolonged half life for drugs with renal elimination. Eg. Vecuronium

23 Inhalational anaesthetics Inhalational anaesthetic fluoride levelsNephrotoxic potential Halothane1-2 μM/LNo Isoflurane3-5 μM/LNo Desflurane<1 μM/L after 1MAC-hrNo Sevoflurane50 μM/L prolonged useToxic in animal studies

24 Intravenous induction agents Intravenous induction agent Renal effectsClinical implication Thiopentone Modest decrease in RBF and GFR Increased unbound fraction Induction and maintenance dose reduced Propofol Cloudy urine due to urates Green urine due to phenols Does not adversely affect renal function Etomidate Metabolised by hydrolysis to inactive compounds - Ketamine Does not alter renal function Does not alter renal function, not to be used in HTN

25 Neuromuscular Blockers NMBRenal effectsClinical implications ScholineHyperkalemiaAvoid RSI if K+ > 5.5 mEq/L Rocuronium30% renal excretion Modified RSI AtracuriumNo renal metabolism Laudanosine epileptogenic – prolonged surgery Vecuronium30% Renal excretion Avoid in CRF Pancuronium50% Renal excretion Avoid in CRF

26 Neuromuscular Blockers CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS IN CRF PATIENTS Increased Volume of distribution Larger initial dose to produce NM blockade Reduced metabolism and Excretion of drugs reduced maintainence dose Avoid long acting NMBs Neuro-muscular monitoring

27 Opioid Analgesics OpioidRenal effectsClinical implications MorphineM-6-G renal excretionDelayed respiratory depression Fentanyl7% renal metabolismSafe in CRF AlfentanylNo renal metabolismSafe in CRF RemifentanylNo renal metabolismSafe in CRF MeperidineNormeperidine causes seizures, myoclonus, altered sensorium Avoid in CRF TramadolO-demethyl tramadol, 30% renal excretion Best avoided, dosing interval increased

28 Non opioid analgesics NSAIDS contraindicated -Hyperkalemia -Platelet dysfunction -Inhibit production of PGE2 and PGI2 Acetaminophen – safe perioperatively

29 Local Anaesthetics Shortened duration due to altered protein binding Dose reduced by 25% Risk of epidural hematoma

30 Preoperative evaluation

31 Clinical history History related to present surgical condition History related to kidney disease: Cause Duration Treatment Dialysis/ICU or hospital admission

32 Symptoms of CRF Malaise Weakness Fatigue Neuropathy CHF Anorexia Nausea Vomiting Seizure Constipation Peptic ulceration Diverticulosis Anemia Pruritus Jaundice Abnormal hemostasis

33 Past history- H/O comorbid conditions - Htn, Diabetes, HIV, Polycyctic kidney disease, obstructive uropathy Onset Progession Treatment – drugs, compliance, control complications

34 History of dialysis 1.Dementia 2.Cerebral edema 3.Hypovolemia (hypotension after anaesthesia induction) 4.Peritonitis (peritoneal dialysis) 5.Systemic anticoagulation

35 History of dialysis Time since last dialysis – last dialysis should finish atleast 4-6 hrs prior to allow fluid shifts and elimination of heparin within 24 hrs of surgery Post dialysis status -Full blood counts -BUN, S.Cr, electrolytes -Coagulation -Patient’s weight Dialysis related complications -

36 Family h/o kidney disease, HT, DM Personal history- – Smoker – Alcohol – Drug abuse

37 Examination Blood pressure Flow murmurs Pericadial rub Ankle/ sacral edema Pulmonary edema Fistula

38 Investigations Full blood counts – normocytic normochromic anaemia Raised TLC Coagulation profile KFT – BUN, S.Cr, S.E ECG – ischemia, arrythmia, LVH CXR ABG – metabolic acidosis LFT – if major surgery

39 Chest X-ray Pulmonary edema Cardiomegaly Pericardial effusion

40 Anaesthetic management

41 Pre-op preparation -optimize BP, B.sugar -Correct serum potassium -ABG -Aspiration prophylaxis – metoclopramide and H2 antagonist

42 Intraoperative management Preoxygenation Premedication – opioid (fentanyl) Iv induction gradual and titrated RSI – Sch if K+ < 5.5 mEq/L -modified RSI with rocuronium -Intubate  controlled ventilation -Regional anaesthesia – risk of epidural hematoma

43 Maintenance of anesthesia O2 + N2O + isoflurane + Atracurium / cis- atracurium Controlled ventilation Monitors: ECG NIBP / IABP Capnography Pulse oxymery Temp Neuromuscular monitoring CVP Urine output

44 Restricted fluids Forced air warming and fluid warming Emergency preparedness

45 Post operative care Analgesia - NSAIDS avoided -Paracetamol safe Oxygenation Monitoring – ECG, BP, SPO2, Urine output Early mobilisation and chest physiotherapy

46 Perioperative management of patient with renal transplantation

47 Kidney donors Contraindication for kidney donation Donor matching Preservation and transport Surgical aspects Peri-operative management Post-operative oligouria Kidney transplant

48 Ideal donor - Age: 5 to 49 years - non hypertensive - Cause of death was not cerebrovascular accident - S. creatinine < 1.5 mg/dl Expanded criteria donor – Age: >60 years or 50-59 yr – additional risk factors (h/o HTN, death from cerebrovascular accident or S.creatinine>1.5 mg/dl) 70% risk of renal failure within 2 years Criteria for kidney donation

49 Contraindications to receiving kidney transplant Absolute Recent or metastatic malignancy Untreated current infection Severe irreversible non renal disease Psychiatric illness Recreational drug abuse Limited irreversible rehabilitative potential Infection: hetatitis B,C, HIV Relative Vesical or urethral abnormalities Aortoiliac occlusive disease Morbid obesity smoking

50 Donor matching ABO blood group: Ideal match: donor and recipient same phenotype Compatible match: person with grp A may donate to A or AB Tissue typing: – HLA compatibility- Kidney with least number of mismatches is prefered – With immunosupressive drugs recipients can receive an organ with less than perfect match

51 Cross matching: – Recipient’s antibody response to donor HLA antigens – Antibody produced after pregnancy or blood transfusion (positive cross-match - relative contraindication to transplant)

52 Preservation and transport Temperature: 4*C – metabolic rate slowed 12 fold Cold storage solutions: - electrolyte composition similar to intracellular environment (low sodium, high potassium) Cold ischemia time: <36 to 40 hours

53 Cadaver kidney: – Donor kidney flushed with cold storage solution + packed in sterile container with ice – In a machine that pumps preservation solution through organ Living donor kidney – Preservation solution/ iced Ringer lactate with heparin and mannitol (ischemia time: 20 – 30 min) Method of transport


55 Surgical aspects Heterotopic position Retroperitoneal – preferred- percutaneous biopsy Right or left ileac fossa Inflow vessel - internal/ external ileac artery Outflow vessel -external ileac vein Urinary continuity - to prevent reflux Intraarterial injection of verapamil/ papaverine to prevent vasospasm (cadaveric donor) Furosemide(200mg) frequently after revascularisation

56 Dual kidney transplant- – More blood loss / third space loss – Longer duration

57 Preoperative preparation Preop work up for comorbidities Workup for chronic renal failure + Urine analysis and urine culture

58 Intraoperative management GA preferred – longer operative time, blood loss, good muscle relaxation RA – not preferred Uremic bleeding tendency Residual effect of heparin post dialysis

59 Intra-operative monitoring Routine monitoring -Heart rate -Blood pressure -ECG -pulse oximetry -capnograph -Neuromuscular monitoring

60 CVP monitoring -Rationale- adequate hydration, prevent ATN -CVP guided fluid therapy – 12- 14 cm H2O -Post dialysis patients have intravascular fluid depletion Invasive monitoring

61 Reasons for decline of CVP after revascularization : 1.Redistribution of fluids 2.Changes in vascular permiability 3.Increased nitric oxide levels

62 Invasive blood pressure monitoring: -Indicated in patient with advanced co-morbidities -Hypotension may occur after unclamping of iliac vessels and/or partial systemic absorption of vasodilators (verapamil or papaverine) -Hypotension can cause delayed graft function

63 Induction of anaesthesia Induction of immuno-suppression started before entering operating room Standard anaesthesia monitors Central line and arterial-line placed

64 IV induction with reduced dose of thiopentone /propofol /etomidate: 1.Lower plasma protein levels 2.Post dialysis hypovolemia Some studies have suggested increased dose requirement of propofol due to hyperdynamic circulation in uremic patients Ketamine undesirable in patients due to underlying hypertension.

65 Blunt laryngoscopic response -fentanyl 5mc/kg iv – metabolised in liver with only 7% renal excretion Remifentanyl (metabolized by plasma esterase) and alfentanyl (metabolized by liver) can also be used -Esmolol 0.5 – 1.0 mg/kg

66 Rapid sequence induction using succinylcoline/rocuronium -increase in serum potassium by 0.5 to 1.0 mEq/l within 3-5min and lasting 10-15 min Succinylcoline can be safely used in renal failure if serum potassium is < 5.5 mEq/l and repeated doses avoided Plasma cholinesterase levels are 20% less – rarely causes prolonged block

67 Maintenance of anaesthesia Volatile anaesthetic- sevoflurane – renal toxicity due to production of fluoride and compound A isoflurane and desflurane- can be used safely Muscle relaxant – atracurium, cisatracurium – hoffman elimination mivacurium – decreased activity of pseudocolinesterase Pancuronium- dependant on renal clearance

68 Intraoperative fluids Avoidance of potassium containing fluids Normal saline and albumin 5% preferred CVP 12-14 cm H2O Furosemide/ mannitol to improve urine output Estimated blood loss – 200 – 500 ml Larger losses replaced with RCC that is CMV negetive

69 Intra-operative effect of polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies Anaphylaxis 1.Stop ATG administration 2.Continue mechanical ventilation with 100% oxygen 3.antihistamines,steroids and epinephrine Patients on beta blockers or ACE inhibitors may not respond to therapy Prevention: antihistamines, acetaminophen and steroids before injection

70 Perioperative oligouria Oligouria is urine output of less than 0.3mg/kg/hr Low urine output indicates dramatic reduction in glomerular filteration rate or mechanical obstruction

71 Peri-operative renal dysfunction TypeCauseManagement Pre-renal Low intravascular volume Relative decrease in blood volume (volatile anaesthetics Responds to fluid challenge Renal Structural- renal art. thr., renal vein thr. ATN -antibiotics, contrast dyes Post-renal mechanical obstruction  surgical wound closure impinging on graft vessels or ureter -flush the foley’s catheter -Intraoperative ultrasound to examine flow at vascular anastomosis

72 Continuous renal replacement therapy

73 Indications of renal replacement therapy Classical indications 1.Volume overload leading to heart failure, pulmonary edema or severe hypertension 2.Anuria 3.Hyperkalemia (> 6.5 mEq/L) 4.Metabolic acidosis (pH < 7.1) 5.Symptomatic uremia (encephalopathy, pericarditis, blood dyscrasias) 6.Dialysable intoxicants – Lithium- Aspirin – Ethylene glycol- Theophylline – Methanol

74 Indications of renal replacement therapy Alternative indications Endotoxic shock Hypothermia (rewarming) Nutritional support Delibrate hypothermia Traumatic rhabdomyolysis Plasmapheresis (Gullian Barre syndrome, myasthenia gravis, TTP

75 Modes of renal replacement therapies 1.Intermittent (<24 hrs) Intermittent hemodialysis (IHD) Sustained low-efficiency dialysis (SELD) Extended daily dialysis (EDD) 2.Intermittent and continuous Peritoneal dialysis (PD) 3.Continuous Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) Continuous renal replacement therapy

76 Slow continuous hemofiltration (SCHF) Continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH) Continuous venovenous hemodialysis (CVVHD) Continous venovenous hemodiafiltration (CVVHDF)

77 Processes of renal replacement therapies 1.Ultrafiltration: Blood is pumped to a filtering membrane Hydrostatic pressure is higher on the blood side of the filter Leaves cellular material behind

78 2. Convection: “ solute drag”- solute molecules swept through membrane by moving stream of ultrafiltrate Positive pressure - blood compartment negetive pressure -dialysate compartment Driving force = trans-membrane pressure

79 2. Convection: Independent of any solute gradient Dependent on porosity

80 3. Diffusion: Movement of solutes from higher to lower concentration across an electrochemical gradient In hemodialysis dialysate is pumped countercurrent to blood flowing on other side of semi-permeable membrane Particle size (<20 KDa)

81 3. Diffusion: Rate of diffusion depends on – Solute (size, charge, pr.binding) – Dialysis membrane (porosity,thickness,surfac e area) – Rate of delivery of solute – Conc. of dialysate

82 4. Membrane adsorption: Adsorption on artificial membranes Determined by pore size and surface area Membrane’s adsorptive capacity gets saturated in first hours of RRT

83 Hemodialysis = Diffusion Hemofiltration = Convection Hemodiafiltration = diffusion + convection

84 Type of CRRTPrincipleApplication SCUFfluid loadCHF CVVHfluid and middle sized molecules CVVHDmostly small molecules CVVHDFSmall and medium sized molecules Intensive care Most efficient approach

85 Advantages of CRRT in critically ill patients Hemodynamically unstable patients Precise volume control Effective control of uremia, hyperkalemia and hypophosphatemia Rapid control of metabolic acidosis Available 24 hours a day Safe in patients with brain injury and cardiovascular disorders Adjuvant therapy in sepsis

86 Dialysate and replacement fluid Initially dialysate low in intracellular ions (potassium, magnesium and phosphate is used) Normokalemic solution when serum potassium is < 4.5 mEq/L

87 (a) A pressure sensor to detects any decrease in pressure (e.g. vascular catheter blockage). (b) A post-filter sensor detects reduced flow to the drip chamber, (c) distal to the drip chamber Detects reduced flow if the return catheter port is blocked.
