Abstract

Perioperative stress and anesthesia are risk factors for exacerbation of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) attacks. Infection, emotional labiality and hyperpyrexia are also known to increase the risk of postoperative MS attacks. Appropriate preoperative evaluation, administration of a good premedication, control of fever, selection of the anesthetic agents and effective postoperative pain control can prevent problems after prolonged major surgery in patients with MS diagnosed. This report presents the anesthetic technique in a patient who was a known case of MS for past nine years and presented with renal tumor to undergo laparoscopic nephrectomy under general anesthesia.
