Abstract

Various anesthetic agents have successfully used for patients undergoing surgery for pheochromocytoma removal. A review of the literature on the anenthetic marnagement of pheochromocytoma discloses no general agreement regarding choice of an anesthetic agent. It would appear that the selection of the anesthetic agent is not as important as the proper management of the patient Previously the anesthetic experience of a case of pheochromocythma removal managed under methoxyflurane anesthesis has been reported by us. Thereafter we have had another five eases of pheochromocytoma removal operation under general anesthesia, employing methoxyflmrane as a primary anesthetic, with relatively satisfactory results.
