Abstract

General anesthesia is the most common method used for operations and volatile anesthetics are commonly used for general anesthesia. Moreover, it is known that the newly developed volatile anesthetics are safe in liver and kidney. However, inorganic fluoride levels increase with anesthetic time and increase the possibility of renal toxicity and repeat a anesthesia in short term period increase the possibility of hepatic failure. We experienced 2 cases who received general anesthesia with volatile anesthetics more than 50 times without any organ failure. Here, we review the anesthetic records and preoperative laboratory findings of each operation.
