Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Cardiac arrest during spinal anaesthesia has been widely reported in literature, with several mechanisms being described. There have so far, however, been no reports of cardiac arrest after spinal anaesthesia during transurethral resection in prostate surgery. We report on a case of near-cardiac arrest during transurethral resection in prostate surgery, and possible mechanisms and strategies to prevent the same.
