Evaluation of Plasma Catecholamine Concentration During Surgery
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Start date||June 2009|
|End date||July 2010|
|Trial size||8 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00948181, 2009061|
Stress during surgery leads to significant increase in plasma catecholamine concentrations in surgeons, anesthesiologists, and patients.
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: Patients with pheochromocytoma (Older than 18 years) - Exclusion Criteria: Patients younger than 18 years. Conservative treatment. -
|Official title||Evaluation of Stress Hormone Concentration During the Resection of Pheochromocytoma. Comparison of Surgeon - Anesthesiologist - Patient|
|Principal investigator||Harald Groeben, M.D.|
|Description||Hypothesis: Resection of pheochromocytomas can lead to more than normal stress in surgeons and because of abrupt hemodynamic changes in patients as well in anesthesiologists. Measurements of catecholamine concentrations at baseline, prior to surgery during and after surgery, are to be performed to test this hypothesis.|
