Background: Acute kidney injury is the most serious complication of crush syndrome. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is an endogenously produced gaseous signaling molecule. It is involved in homeostatic functions, such as blood pressure control, apoptosis, oxidative stress, and inflammation. In this study, effects of H2S on kidney injury were investigated in a rat model of crush syndrome.
