Volatile anaesthetics and organ protection in kidney transplantation: finally, a randomized controlled trial!

Many clinical trials have evaluated whether volatile anaesthetics are protective in scenarios of ischaemia–reperfusion (I/R). Although the majority of studies of I/R injury involve cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass,12 some have been performed in lung surgery with one-lung ventilation,3 liver resection under inflow occlusion,4 or liver transplantation.5 The study by Niewuwenhuijs-Moeke and colleagues6 in this issue of the BritishJournalof Anaesthesia is the first to evaluate direct effects of volatile anaesthetics on kidneys undergoing I/R injury during transplantation (volatile anaesthetic protection of renal transplants, VAPOR-1 trial). The authors are to be congratulated for their efforts. So far, only animal experiments have addressed the impact of volatile anaesthetics on renal I/R injury, or the kidneys were evaluated only as a secondary outcome in clinical trials.2 Therefore, this study increases our knowledge and experience of organ protection and volatile anaesthetics.
