The pheochromocytoma is responsible for the excessive release of adrenaline and norepinephrine which leads to hypertensive flare-ups, dysrhythmias, strokes and pre-operative myocardial ischemia. This makes perioperative hemodynamic instability the greatest surgical and anesthetic challenge in surgery for a pheochromocytoma, hence the need for patient preparation with appropriate medications. This hemodynamic instability occurs in a large proportion of post-operative patients who often require vasopressor agents. Management of these hemodynamic disorders has improved outcomes by reducing both mortality and morbidity.
We report a case of a pheochromocytoma patient who underwent adrenalectomy, whose cardiac problems were aggravated postoperatively and were controlled by the administration of vasoactive drugs in the resuscitation setting.
