Abstract
Study Objective: To evaluate the effects of an intravenous infusion of pros taglandin E1 (PGE1) on hepatic blood flow. Design: Prospective clinical study. Setting: University-affiliated hospital. Patients: 16 ASA physical status I and II surgical patients who were schedu led for abdominal surgery. Interventions: Patients were anaesthetized with 1% sevoflurane and 66% nitr ous oxide. PGE1 0.05 mg/kg/min or PGE1 0.10 mg/kg/min was continuously infu sed, followed by an infusion of 1000 mL Ringer's acetate solution. Measurements: The hemodynamic effect of PGE1 was examined using pulse dye d ensitometry (PDD). A nose probe for PDD was used, and 10 mg indocyanine gre en (ICG) in 2 mL distilled water was bolus-infused into a central venous ca theter for each measurement. Cardiac output (CO), circulating blood volume (CBV), and plasma dye clearance rate (K) were monitered from the dye-densit ogram. Hepatic blood flow was estimated using the K and CBV values. Main Results: PGE1 did not increase CBV or CO. Even adding a 1000 mL crysta lloid infusion did not expand CBV, whereas mean arterial pressure (MAP) sig nificantly decreased from 91.1 +/- 16.5 mmHg to 84.8 +/- 13.5 mmHg (PGE1 0. 05 mug/kg/min) and 80.6 +/- 14.4 mmHg (PGE 0.10 mug/kg/min) (p < 0.01 compa red with control value), then to 72.0 +/- 6.5 mmHg (PGE 0.10 mug/kg/min + 1 000 mL Ringer's acetate) (p < 0.01 compared with control value). Hepatic bl ood flow changes were 1.46 +/- 0.60 L/min mug/kg/min (control), 1.48 +/- 0. 45 L/min (PGE1 0.05 mug/kg/min), 1.14 +/- 0.35 L/min (PGE1 1.10 mug/kg/min) , and 1.15 +/- 1.19 L/min (PGE1 0.10 mug/kg/min + 1000 mL Ringer's acetate) (no significant difference, p < 0.05). Hepatic blood flow and K values did not statistically differ at each condition. Conclusions: PGE1 does not affect blood volume shift, CO, or hepatic blood flow. (C) 2001 by Elsevier Science Inc.
