Abstract

Our results demonstrate that I/R injury was significantly reduced in the presence of propofol. The protective effects of propofol may be due to their antioxidant properties. These results may indicate that propofol anesthesia protects against functional, biochemical, and morphological damage better than control in renal I/R injury.
