Abstract

Anesthetic experience with three cases of the resection of glucagonoma, a rare tumor of alpha cells of pancreatic islets, is presented. Marked increases of blood glucagon and glucose levels, with the potential for clinically significant metabolic and myocardial dysfunction, did not occur during anesthesia and surgery. Associated tumors of other endocrine cell types also were absent in the three study patients. Strategies for anticipating and managing other perioperative problems associated with glucagonoma also are discussed.
