YPOTENSION, SOMETIMES REFRACTORY, is a well-recognized phenomenon associated with the administration of general anesthesia in patients who have angiotensin-axis blockade (AAB) because of the administration of either angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) or angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs). 1 Hypotension in such patients usually occurs within 30 minutes of the induction of anesthesia2,3 and is more frequent in patients also receiving diuretics. 4 There is an ongoing debate as to… Expand
Perioperative Angiotensin Axis Blockade , to Continue or Discontinue , That Is the Question ?
To the Editor In a recent editorial reflecting on whether angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) should be stopped preoperatively to avoid hypotension withExpand
Refractory Hypotension During General Anesthesia Despite Withholding Telmisartan.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that refractory hypotension during general anesthesia cannot always be avoided by withholding telmisartan for 24 hours before the induction of anesthesia, and a washout period greater than 24 hours is preferable for patients taking tel Misartan. Expand
Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors and Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers Before Elective Noncardiac Surgery: An Ongoing Dilemma.
TLDR
Meta-analysis by Hollmann et al5 did not demonstrate an association between continued administration of ACE-I/ARB therapy and patient mortality, but provided clinicians with contrarian results regarding this conundrum based on the conclusions of a meta-analysis that focuses on major cardiovascular and cerebrovascular outcomes. Expand
Arterial Stiffness Predicts General Anesthesia-Induced Vasopressor-Resistant Hypotension in Patients Taking Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors.
TLDR
It is suggested that preoperative measurement of carotid-femoral pulse-wave velocity in patients chronically treated with ACEIs could help identify patients at increased risk of developing hypotension refractory to vasopressors after induction of general anesthesia. Expand
Multifactorial Model and Treatment Approaches of Refractory Hypotension in a Patient Who Took an ACE Inhibitor the Day of Surgery
TLDR
A case report is presented in which a patient took her ACEI the day of surgery and developed refractory hypotension during surgery, and a basic model on treatment approaches for refractary hypotension in the setting of perioperative ACEI use is proposed. Expand
In response to "Preoperative angiotensin axis blockade therapy, intraoperative hypotension, and the risks of postoperative acute kidney injury".
TLDR
It is found that intraoperative hypotension and AAB are associated with AKI, and the common sense approach of stopping AAB preoperatively to avoid possible AKI still requires evaluation by a properly conducted randomized controlled trial. Expand
A randomized controlled trial comparing methohexital and propofol for induction in patients receiving angiotensin axis blockade
TLDR
While methohexital was shown to confer greater hemodynamic stability in patients taking ACEi/ARB, the measured hormone levels could not explain the mechanism for this effect. Expand
Angiotensin axis blockade, hypotension, and acute kidney injury in elective major orthopedic surgery.
TLDR
Patients undergoing major elective orthopedic surgery who receive preoperative AAB therapy, have an associated increased risk of postinduction hypotension and postoperative acute kidney injury resulting in a greater hospital length of stay. Expand
Icatibant as an early rescue therapy in hypovolemic shock with converting enzyme inhibitor treatment
TLDR
The results of this proof-of-concept study suggest that very early administration of icatibant may limit the consequences of hemorrhagic shock in patients treated with ACEIs before resuscitation could be initiated. Expand
Bradyarrhythmia and hypotension during anesthetic induction—reconsideration of nifedipine: a case report
  • Xuena Zhang
  • Medicine
  • The Journal of international medical research
  • 2021
TLDR
A case of severe bradyarrhythmia during anesthetic induction with propofol, midazolam, sufentanil, and vecuronium is described, and discontinuation of nifedipine should be considered. Expand

Influence of Chronic Angiotensin‐converting Enzyme Inhibition on Anesthetic Induction
TLDR
In hypertensive patients chronically treated with ACEIs, maintenance of therapy until the day of surgery may increase the probability of hypotension at induction. Expand
Hemodynamic effects of anesthesia in patients chronically treated with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors.
TLDR
To assess the hemodynamic effects of induction of anesthesia in patients chronically treated with ACEIs, 16 hypertensive patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass graft surgery or vascular surgery were studied. Expand
Treating Anesthesia-Induced Hypotension by Angiotensin II in Patients Chronically Treated with Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors
TLDR
It is concluded that AII, given as an IV bolus of 2.5 micro g, is effective in restoring arterial blood pressure within 60 s in patients chronically treated with ACEI, but the administration of AII causes a transient impairment in left ventricular function. Expand
Influence of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors on hypotension after anesthetic induction: is the preoperative discontinuation of this drug necessary?
TLDR
The authors considered that the recommendation to discontinue ACE inhibitors on the day before the surgery should be reviewed. Expand
Should the Angiotensin II Antagonists be Discontinued Before Surgery?
TLDR
It is demonstrated that more severe hypotensive episodes, requiring vasoconstrictor treatment, occur after induction of general anesthesia in patients chronically treated with AIIA and receiving this drug on the morning before operation, in comparison with those in whom AIIA were discontinued on the day before operation.

Angiotensin System Inhibitors in a General Surgical Population
TLDR
In conclusion, discontinuation of ACEI/ARA therapy at least 10 h before anesthesia was associated with a reduced risk of immediate postinduction hypotension and no differences in postoperative complications were found between groups. Expand
Renin angiotensin system antagonists and anesthesia.
TLDR
RAS antagonist pharmacology may help to understand the hemodynamic risk of anesthesia in RAS-blocked patients, to identify predisposing factors, and to determine the potential benefit of RAS antagonists during anesthesia and surgery. Expand
Treatment of intraoperative refractory hypotension with terlipressin in patients chronically treated with an antagonist of the renin-angiotensin system.
TLDR
Terrlipressin is effective to rapidly correct refractory hypotension in patients chronically treated with antagonists of the renin-angiotensin system without impairing left ventricular function. Expand
The hemodynamic effects of anesthetic induction in vascular surgical patients chronically treated with angiotensin II receptor antagonists.
TLDR
Hypotensive episodes occur more frequently after anesthetic induction in patients receiving Angiotensin II receptor subtype-1 antagonists under anesthesia than with other hypotensive drugs. Expand
Renin–angiotensin system antagonists in the perioperative setting: clinical consequences and recommendations for practice
TLDR
Further studies are required to be able to demonstrate if the organ-protective benefits of RAAS antagonists justify their continuation in the perioperative setting, and strategies to ensure careful monitoring and maintenance of adequate intravenous volume before induction of anaesthesia are essential.
