The specific antagonists of the 5-hydroxytryptamine-3 (5-HT3) receptor have been progressively introduced in anesthesiology to prevent or treat PONV. Although a large increase of serotonin has been documented after cisplatin treatment, the link between serotonin and PONV in surgery/anesthesiology is unknown. In a prospective study, we compared the excretion of the… CONTINUE READING
