Abstract

Background and objective Tourniquet use is a common tool in surgical procedures of the limbs. Hydroxyethyl starch (HES) 130/0.4 not only has a role in replacement of the liquid deficits due to trauma, bleeding or shock, but it is also effective in enhancing tissue oxygen tension and regulation of microcirculation. The aim of this study was to investigate how 6% HES 130/0.4 affects ischaemia and reperfusion in skeletal muscle.
