Table 2 Thickness measured by CT and B ultrasound

From: Effect of intra-abdominal volume increment on kidneys in minipigs with intra-abdominal hypertension after hemorrhagic shock and resuscitation

Index (mm) Group Before shock (n= 8) 2 h after IAH (n= 8) 22 h after surgery (n= 4)
Right kidney thickness as determined by CT IAVI group 12.50 ± 4.20 13.50 ± 3.20§ 15.70 ± 1.80
Sham-operated group 19.00 ± 1.40
Right renal cortical thickness as determined by B ultrasound IAVI group 5.50 ± 0.80 6.80 ± 1.00 5.90 ± 0.70
Sham-operated group 9.30 ± 0.40
  1. Compared with before shock, §P < 0.05. Compared with 2 h after IAH, P < 0.05. IAVI group vs. sham-operated group, P < 0.05.
