We investigated the effects of two different concentrations of sevoflurane, 0.4 minimum alveolar anesthetic concentration (MAC) and 1.0 MAC, on insulin secretion before, during, and after sevoflurane anesthesia using three successive intravenous glucose tolerance tests (IVGTT) in pigs with indwelling catheters. We also investigated changes in the levels of(More)
Purpose. Sevoflurane and isoflurane have been reported to exert protective effects against ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) in various organs. To compare the effect of sevoflurane anesthesia on liver IRI with that of isoflurane anesthesia, we performed the present study in pigs. Methods. Nineteen pigs were assigned to either the sevoflurane (n = 9) or the(More)
UNLABELLED Using precision-cut liver slices (20-25 mg wet weight) from male Wistar rats, we examined whether clinically relevant propofol concentrations have hepatoprotective or -toxic effects during hypoxia/reoxygenation. Slices were preincubated for 2 h in sealed roller vials (three slices per vial) containing Waymouth's medium (37 degrees C; 95%(More)
A 33-year-old male was scheduled for tonsillectomy and pharyngoplasty due to sleep apnea syndrome. The intubation was uneventful following induction with thiamylal and vecuronium. Anesthesia was maintained with O2-N2O-sevoflurane. No complications were observed during the 90 min operation. After the termination of the anesthesia, a hyperadrenergic state was(More)
The Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome (DMCS) is a rare autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia characterized by short-trunk dwarfism and mental retardation. A 49-year-old male with DMCS underwent resection arthroplasty for contracture of the right hip joint under general anesthesia using thiamylal, nitrous oxide, sevoflurane, and vecuronium. Although he was(More)
A 50-year-old man was scheduled to undergo esophagectomy after a diagnosis of esophageal cancer. Anesthesia was induced with thiamylal, followed by vecuronium to obtain muscle relaxation, and was maintained with isoflurane and nitrous oxide in oxygen. Oral intubation of a double-lumen endotracheal tube was performed with slight difficulty and we then tried(More)
A 70-year-old male with renal cell carcinoma extending into the retrohepatic inferior vena cava was scheduled for radical nephrectomy with vena caval resection under general anesthesia. He had received partial gastrectomy for gastric cancer twelve years before. Computed tomography and inferior vena cavography confirmed that the vena cava was almost(More)
The effect of endotoxin on fluidity and lipid composition of the erythrocyte membrane was studied in rats following the intraperitoneal administration of endotoxin (30 mg-kg−1 body weight). Erythrocyte membrane fluidity measured with 16-stearic acid spin label (16-SAL) was significantly decreased in the endotoxin-treated rats as compared with control. A(More)
