Increased arterial pressure is not predictive of haemodynamic instability in patients undergoing adrenalectomy for phaeochromocytoma.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Pre-operative hypotensive drugs are assumed to have dramatically decreased operative mortality and morbidity in patients undergoing phaeochromocytoma removal only in non-controlled studies. We evaluated the predictive value of pre-operative high systolic arterial pressure (SAP) on intra- and post-operative haemodynamic instability, in 96 patients… (More)
