Abstract

Background and objective: Although percutaneous nephrolithotomy has many advantages over open surgery, some endocrine and haemodynamic responses have been reported. However, the effects of anaesthetic agents on these responses have not previously been reported. This study compared the effects of sevoflurane and total intravenous anaesthesia using propofol and alfentanil on the haemodynamic and hormonal changes during percutaneous nephrolithotomy.
