Targeted renal therapy (TRT) is a novel emerging treatment where high-dose fenoldopam (FEN), a selective renal dopamine-1 receptor agonist and renal arteriolar vasodilator, is infused into both renal arteries via the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved 5-Fr bifurcated Benephit PV Catheter Infusion System. TRT has been shown to significantly increase the glomerular filtration rate by 25% vs placebo and IV-FEN (P<0.001), which may have important clinical implications in contrast-induced nephropathy prophylaxis and during vascular and endovascular surgical procedures.
