Evaluation of Stress Hormone Concentration During the Resection of Pheochromocytoma. Comparison of Surgeon - Anesthesiologist - Patient
Hypothesis: Resection of pheochromocytomas can lead to more than normal stress in surgeons
and because of abrupt hemodynamic changes in patients as well in anesthesiologists.
Measurements of catecholamine concentrations at baseline, prior to surgery during and after
surgery, are to be performed to test this hypothesis.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
