LOMBI, Fernando; YOUNG, Pablo  and  TRIMARCHI, Hernán. Des-resucitación en la sobrecarga de fluidos asociada a la lesión renal aguda. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2020, vol.80, n.2, pp.150-156. ISSN 0025-7680.

In the last few years the general results in the treatment of acute kidney injury has improved constantly, without a complete comprehension of its pathophysiology. With this paradigm in mind, in these last few years we have seen an evolving comprehension of the possible answers that may be based on recognizing the more proactive role of fluid management in the resuscitation of critical patients, not limited only to the delivery of fluids, but also to their active removal, having as the principal objective the improvement of tissue perfusion. The key role of vascular integrity in fluid overload is discussed, emphasizing the role of the endothelial glycocalyx. Active des-resuscitation maneuvers with diuretics or with renal support therapies could be increasingly recognized instruments in the management of fluid overload, particularly in those patients with acute kidney injury.

Keywords : Acute kidney injury; Fluid overload; Renal support therapy.
