It is also considered cost saving because it has been associated with a decreased hospital length of stay. Variables that might lead to increased costs in laparoscopic surgery are the technique and drugs used in anesthesia.

In a prospective randomized study in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy, we compared the hemodynamic effects, the quality of induction, and the quality of recovery from a hypnotic drug for the induction of anesthesia with sevoflurane, a target-controlled infusion (TCI) of propofol, or propofol 1.5 microg/kg followed by isoflurane. All patients were premedicated with midazolam and received sufentanil 0.4 microg/kg at induction. The induction of anesthesia was associated with a decrease in arterial blood pressure in all groups, but this was least pronounced in the Sevoflurane group...
