[An assessment of the surgical and anesthesiological stress in cesarean section by studying the hypophyseal-adrenal system].

Abstract

Cesarean section performed under endotracheal anesthesia is accompanied by a considerable stimulation of hypophyseal-adrenal system (HAS) manifested in the activation of adenohypophysis and adrenal cortex adrenocorticotropic function. Prolonged epidural anesthesia performed for the anesthesiological protection of pregnant women during abdominal delivery is characterized by optimal HAS hormonal levels at all the stages of anesthesia and surgery. Relative stability of HAS function and hemodynamic indexes indicates the adequacy of antinociceptive protection of the type of anesthesia under study.
