Abstract

Calcium antagonists (CATs) have a role in the management of certain types of renal insufficiency. These include prophylaxis against post-transplant-associated acute renal failure and cyclosporine A (CsA)-induced renal dysfunction. For the transplanted kidney, CATs may be beneficial in several settings. First, a CAT during organ procurement protects the kidney during ischemic periods. Second, CATs given perioperatively protect the kidney during reperfusion and early after transplantation. Third, CATs also offer protection against CsA nephrotoxicity.
