Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Fifteen patients with severe cardiac disease (American Society of Anesthesiologists III or IV) underwent laparoscopy using radial artery and pulmonary artery catheters to determine intraoperative hemodynamic changes. Cardiac output (CO), mean arterial blood pressure (MAP), central venous pressure, heart rate, systemic vascular resistance (SVR) and mixed venous oxygen saturation (SVO2) were recorded before anesthetic induction, after induction, but before peritoneal insufflation, after insufflation and after release of pneumoperitoneum. Peritoneal insufflation led to significant elevations in MAP and SVR and reduction in CO. For seven patients, a decrease in SVO2 after peritoneal insufflation was predictive of significant worsening of hemodynamic parameters, suggesting inadequate cardiac reserve. In all patients, hemodynamic parameters returned toward baseline once pneumoperitoneum was released. There were no perioperative cardiac complications. While it is evident that laparoscopy presents serious hemodynamic stress, it can be performed safely in high-risk patients, using aggressive intraoperative monitoring.
