From the foregoing accounts of preoperative assessment of myocardial performance, as well as preload and afterload status it is clear that the proper anesthesia techniques and agents can be selected. Physiologically optimal adjustments of preload, afterload, and myocardial function can be attained by the appropriate, harmonious selection of anesthesia technique and vasoactive drugs made on the basis of close hemodynamic monitoring preoperatively, intraoperatively, and in the immediate postoperative period.
