Department of Anesthesia, University of Basle/Kantonsspital, CH-4031 Basle, Switzerland


Numerous anesthetic techniques and agents have been used for anesthetizing pheochromocytoma patients. However, a comparison based on literature reports is difficult, since most describe only isolated cases. We discuss current anesthetic techniques and a case report of a patient who successfully received a combined propofol-fentanyl anesthesia for pheochromocytoma resection.
