Effect of general and peridural anesthesia on the concentrations of prolactin and cortisol in maternal plasma



Effect of general and peridural anesthesia on the concentrations of prolactin and cortisol in maternal plasma



American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology 141(5): 483-486



Comparison of the effect of general and peridural anesthesia on maternal prolactin [PRL] and cortisol [C] concentrations in response to the stress of cesarean section near term revealed that surgery under general anesthesia resulted in significant augmentation of mean maternal plasma prolactin and Cortisol concentrations. By contrast, surgery under peridural anesthesia resulted in no significant increase in mean maternal plasma PRL levels and in a significant but delayed increment in mean C concentrations. During pregnancy near term, the PRL and C responses to surgical stress are intact but modified by the type of anesthetic administered.
