Twenty-four patients undergoing abdominal aortic surgery for aneurysm or occlusive vascular disease entered a randomized, double-blind protocol comparing high-dose narcotic anesthesia with fentanyl (125 micrograms/kg) or sufentanil (25 micrograms/kg). All patients received perioperative beta-adrenergic blockade therapy. Hemodynamic and electrocardiographic (leads II and V5) responses to induction, intubation, skin incision, aortic cross-clamping, and declamping were studied. Sufentanil produced… CONTINUE READING
