Abstract
Insulinomas are the most common neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas. Complete cure can be achieved by surgical therapy and it is of importance anesthesiologically because of secondary catecholamine discharge and possible hypoglycemia during surgical manipulation. With this case we present our method of anesthesiological management of a patient with insulinoma scheduled for laparoscopic distal
pancreatectomy in our hospital.

Key words: insulinoma, hypoglycemia, general anesthesia



İnsülinoma ve anestezi: Olgu sunumu

Özet
İnsülinomalar endokrin pankreas tümörlerinin en sık görülenidir. İnsülinoma tanısı normal ya da yüksek plazma insülin seviyesinde açlık hipogliseminin gösterilmesiyle konur. Kesin tedavisi cerrahi rezeksiyon olan insülinomalar hipoglisemi ve sekonder katekolamin artışıyla oluşan tablo nedeniyle anestezik açıdan önem arzeder. Bu olguyla insülinoma tanısıyla laparoskopik distal pankreatektomi planlanan vakaya anestezik yaklaşımımızı paylaşmayı amaçladık.

Anahtar Kelimeler: insülinoma, hipoglisemi, genel anestezi
