  1. Abbreviations: IV Intravenous, IH Inhalational, aPTT Activated partial thrombin time
  2. Average of vital signsa were mean of values measured at three time points during surgery: immediately after induction of anesthesia, at the onset of renal arterial clamping and at the end of surgical procedure
  3. Hypotension eventb was defined as systolic blood pressure < 90 mmHg over 5 min
  4. NOTE: Values are expressed as mean median (interquartile) and number (proportion)
