Efficacy of oral hydration was compared with that of traditional intravenous hydration along with comparison of furasemide with mannitol in 65 patients of solid tumours undergoing Cisplatin based anterior chemotherapy. Incidence of reversible uremia was found to be equivalent in the series. Our results suggest superiority of oral hydration and furosemide diuresis owing to cost efficiency and patient comfort.
