Resection of phaeochromocytoma is associated with sudden changes in arterial pressure. Pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties of sevoflurane are suitable for maintenance of haemodynamic stability. We report two cases of phaeochromocytoma resection using sevoflurane. Intraoperative hypotensive or hypertensive events have been rapidly controlled, most often only by adjustment of the end-expiratory fraction of sevoflurane.
