Isoflurane in Patients with Pheochromocytoma — A Multicenter Study
Part of the
Anaesthesiology Intensive Care Medicine/Anaesthesiologie und Intensivmedizin
book series (A+I, volume 182)
Removal of a pheochromocytoma is always a challenge to the anaesthesiologist. Few and scarce data are available in the literature about the usefulness and practical application of isoflurane for this indication [1, 2, 3]. Theoretical considerations suggest, however, that isoflurane would be a most appropriate anaesthetic in this regard. Amongst the reasons given for its use, eventually the most important ones are stable heart rhythm and absence of arrhythmias , minimal depression of cardiac output, and decreased vascular resistance.
