Changes in three recognized liver function tests are reported following the use of propofol in 30 fit, unpremedicated women in whom propofol was used as the main anaesthetic agent. Doses of 140 to 330 mg were given, together with nitrous oxide and oxygen. All patients were undergoing minor gynaecological operations and all conformed to Grade 1 physical status of American Society of Anesthesiologists Classification. In none of these patients was there hypoxia or hypercarbia at any time during or following anaesthesia and none of the patients received any other drugs until completion of the study. No significant changes in liver enzymes (aspartate transaminase and alanine transaminase) or in serum alkaline phosphatase were detected.
