Effects of preoperative methoxamine on blood loss and haemodynamic variables during transurethral prostatic resection under spinal anaesthesia
CHAMBERS, F. A.; O'TOOLE, D. P.; CORCORAN, M. O.; KEANE, P. W.
Thirty-six patients who presented for transurethral prostatic resection were allocated randomly to one of two groups. Patients in group A were given methoxamine 10 mg i.m., 15 min before spinal anaesthesia. Patients in group B acted as a control group. All patients received spinal anaesthesia. Preoperative administration of methoxamine 10 mg i.m. decreased blood loss significantly and improved haemodynamic stability compared with the control group.
