BACKGROUND: Carbon dioxide (CO2) pneumoperitoneum for laparoscopic surgery increases arterial pressures, systemic vascular resistance and heart rate and decreases urine output. METHODS: In this double-blind randomized study esmolol, an ultrashort-acting beta1-adrenoceptor antagonist was compared with physiological saline (control) in 28 patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery in standardized 1 MAC isoflurane anaesthesia. Alfentanil infusion was used to prevent the increase of mean arterial pressure more than 25% from baseline. RESULTS: Esmolol effectively prevented the pressor response to induction and maintenance of CO2 pneumoperitoneum. Significantly (P<0.001) less alfentanil was needed in the esmolol group than in the control group. Urine output was higher (P<0.05) and plasma renin activity (P<0.01) and urine N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase levels lower in the esmolol group when compared with the control group. CONCLUSIONS: Esmolol blunts the pressor response to induction and maintenance of pneumoperitoneum and may protect against renal ischaemia during pneumoperitoneum.
