Example text

The regurgitant flow is responsible for the “v” wave present on the recording of the pulmonary artery occlusion pressure. The size of the v wave correlates with the magnitude of the regurgitant flow. TREATMENT Medical treatment typically includes digoxin, diuretics, and vasodilators. Reduction of afterload increases the forward stroke volume and decreases the regurgitant volume. Surgical treatment is usually reserved for patients with moderate to severe symptoms. 1 Common Diseases I Valvular Heart Disease pa r t chapter 34 section I Cardiovascular System ANESTHETIC CONSIDERATIONS The following goals should be achieved in the anesthetic management of the patient with mitral regurgitation: • Decrease regurgitant blood flow to enhance CO by decreasing afterload.

Invasive intravascular lines, such as a central venous pressure (CVP) line, a pulmonary artery (PA) catheter (to evaluate right- and left-sided heart pressures, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure, pulmonary and systemic vascular resistances, and cardiac output/index), and an arterial line for beat-to-beat evaluation of blood pressure and frequent blood specimen analyses, may need to be considered. These measures should be used to optimize anesthetic care when the patient is at risk because of clinical history and/or the surgical procedure.

Higher concentrations of inhaled agent result in greater degrees of myocardial depression and vasodilation. Volatile agents must be used with extreme caution, as the myocardial depressant effect can be deleterious in patients with impaired ventricular function. The use of high-dose opioidbased agents (fentanyl, 50 to 100 mcg/kg, or sufentanil, 5 to 30 mcg/kg) is an alternative anesthetic approach that may help achieve cardiovascular stability by not causing a significant amount of myocardial depression.
