Title

Influence of thoracic epidural analgesia on cardiovascular autonomic control after thoracic surgery

Authors
Published in British Journal of Anaesthesia. 2003, vol. 91, no. 4, p. 525-31
Abstract Thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) is effective in alleviating pain after major thoracoabdominal surgery and may also reduce postoperative mortality and morbidity. This study investigated cardiovascular autonomic control in patients undergoing elective thoracic surgery and its modulation by continuous TEA.
