The aim this study was to examine to what degree the slow turnover of lactated Ringer's solution during anesthesia and surgery can be prevented by infusing esmolol (a ß1-receptor blocker) or phenylephrine in patients undergoing laparoscopic gynecological surgery performed under intravenous anesthesia.

Condition Intervention Phase
Ovarian Cyst
Drug: Esmolol administration
Drug: Phenylephrine infusion
Drug: Lactated Ringer´s solution
Phase 1
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Care Provider)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: The Effects of ß1-receptor Blockade and α1-adrenergic Agonist on the Kinetics of Lactated Ringer's Solution During Surgery

Further study details as provided by Sodertalje Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Urinary excretion [ Time Frame: 3 hours ]
    Urine was collected via an indwelling catheter during 3 hours of surgery

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Volume kinetics of lactated Ringer´s solution [ Time Frame: 3 hours ]
    Volume kinetics was analyzed based on serial analysis of the blood Hgb concentration and the collection of urine. Distribution between a central body and a peripheral body fluid space was then calculated over time.

Detailed Description:

INTRODUCTION The renal clearance of infused crystalloid fluid is very low during anaesthesia and surgery, but experiments in conscious sheep indicate that the renal fluid clearance might approach a normal rate when the adrenergic balance is modified.

METHODS Sixty females (mean age, 32 years) undergoing laparoscopic gynecological surgery were randomized to control group and received only the conventional anesthetic drugs and 20 ml/kg of lactated Ringer's over 30 min. The others were also given an infusion of 50 µg/kg/min of esmolol (beta1-receptor blocker) or 0.01 µg/kg/min of phenylephrine (alpha1-adrenergic agonist) over 3 hours. The distribution and elimination of infused fluid was studied by volume kinetic analysis based on urinary excretion and blood Hgb level.
