Aortobifemoral surgery anesthesia

Anjum Saiyed, Reema Meena, Indu Verma, C K Vyas
BACKGROUND: Complete obstruction of the abdominal aorta at the renal artery level is a difficult surgical problem. Aortic clamping and declamping can lead to profound haemodynamic changes, myocardial infarction, ventricular failure or even death may result. These complications are important challenges in anesthetic management of these patients. METHODS: Between August, 2010 and April, 2012, descending thoracic aorta to femoral artery bypass grafting was used to revascularize lower limbs in 11 patients in our institute...

A 63 years old patient with severely impaired pulmonary function presented with bilateral lower limb vascular blockade and was operated for emergency aortobifemoral bypass. The patient was considered to be at very high risk for general anesthesia but doing the case under regional anesthesia was also challenging because of the multiple dermatomal levels needed to be anesthetized and because of the potential of adverse effects with such extensive block. There are only a few reported cases of using combination of central neuraxial blocks...

A 61-year-old man diagnosed with advanced stage Leriche syndrome underwent revascularization surgery with placement of an aortobifemoral shunt and prosthesis under combined general and lumbar epidural anesthesia. After 6 hours he developed bilateral lower extremity compartment syndrome with acute anuric kidney failure caused by severe rhabdomyolysis. Thirty hours after surgery the patient suffered cardiac arrest due to hyperkalemia and was unresponsive to advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The delay in diagnosis, in part owing to the epidural block provided for surgery, and loss of muscle mass led to the unfavorable outcome in this case...

OBJECTIVE: Descending thoracic aorta to femoral artery bypass (DTAFB) has demonstrated usefulness in the treatment of aorto-iliac occlusive disease but related morbidity and mortality are not negligible. We wanted to determine the feasibility of thoracoscopic DTAFB and to report our clinical experience. MATERIAL AND METHODS: An experimental study was performed on 8 pigs in helicoidal position under general anesthesia with right selective ventilation ). Three trocars were inserted and the descending aorta was dissected )...

PURPOSE: To describe a laparoscopic technique for resection of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). METHODS: The operation is based on the principle of retroperitoneal reinforced staple exclusion of the aneurysm sac with aortobifemoral or aortoiliac bypass using gas and gasless laparoscopic techniques. Patients were eligible for this procedure if their infrarenal AAAs (with or without iliac artery involvement) were considered appropriate for surgical resection; however, renal or other visceral arterial stenoses, aneurysmal disease requiring surgical treatment, and/or aneurysms of the hypogastric arteries excluded patients from laparoscopic AAA resection...

BACKGROUND: The retroperitoneal approach for elective infrarenal aortic procedures is an attractive alternative to the standard transperitoneal approach. In an effort to limit the number of extraneous influences on patient outcome, this approach was performed using epidural anesthesia without the use of endotracheal intubation or general anesthesia. METHODS: From June 1991 through July 1993, 62 consecutive patients with aorto-occlusive or aorto-iliac disease underwent infrarenal aortic repair using the retroperitoneal approach...

The authors determined the pharmacokinetics of sufentanil, 12.5 iv in patients undergoing elective abdominal aortic surgery. The mean age (+/- SD) of the ten patients was 68.4 +/- 7.9 yr; their mean weight was 74.4 +/- 19.1 kg. Six patients underwent aortobifemoral grafting and four had abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Serum sufentanil concentrations were determined in samples drawn at increasing intervals over a 24-h period. A three-compartment pharmacokinetic model was fit to the concentration versus time data...

The pharmacokinetics of alfentanil, 300 IV, were determined in patients undergoing elective abdominal aortic reconstruction. The mean age (+/- SD) of the patients was 64.3 +/- 7.4 yr; their mean weight was 74.7 +/- 13.8 kg. Five patients underwent aneurysm repair and six had aortobifemoral grafting. Serum alfentanil concentrations were measured by gas-liquid chromatography in samples drawn at increasing intervals over a 24-hr period. A three-compartment model was fitted to the concentration versus time data...
