Effect of the Volume of Fluids Administered on Intraoperative Oliguria in Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery: A Randomized Controlled Trial [Original Article]

Conclusions  In patients undergoing laparoscopic bariatric surgery, intraoperative urine output is low regardless of the use of relatively high-volume fluid therapy. The results suggest that we should reconsider the common practice to administer intraoperative fluids in response to low urine output. Further studies are required to evaluate these data in other surgical patient populations.
