Read the abstract of the medical case
hypotension during general anesthesia: a case report
Tamsulosin, a selective α1-adrenergic receptor (α1-AR) antagonist, is a widely
prescribed first-line agent for benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Its
interaction with anesthetic agents has not been described.
We report the case of 54-year-old
Asian man undergoing elective left thyroid lobectomy. The only medication the
patient was taking was tamsulosin 0.4 mg for the past year for BPH. He
developed persistent hypotension during the maintenance phase of anesthesia
while receiving oxygen, nitrous oxide and 1% isoflurane. The hypotension could
have been attributable to a possible interaction between inhalational
anesthetic and tamsulosin.
Vigilance for unexpected
hypotension is important in surgical patients who are treated with selective α1-AR blockers. If hypotension occurs,
vasopressors that act directly on adrenergic receptors could be more effective.
