OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of a single prophylactic dose of urapidil for arterial hypertension during the period before start of extracorporeal circulation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-four patients with good ventricular function (ejection fraction < 40%) scheduled for coronary surgery were enrolled for prospective study. The patients were randomly(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy of high doses of propofol for controlling hypertension during coronary surgery and to compared cardiovascular stability with propofol to that observed under lower doses of propofol with nitroprusside. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty patients were studied prospectively. The patients had good ventricular function and were(More)
In this prospective study, we evaluated the combined influence of age and premedication on propofol requirements for the induction of anesthesia and their hemodynamic effects using a target-controlled infusion. We studied 180 patients separated into three age groups: 20-39 yr, 40-59 yr, and more than 59 yr. In each age group, patients were randomly(More)
