The Authors report their experience with the use of two different anaesthetic techniques (propofol-fentanil versus isoflurane-fentanyl) for induction and maintenance of anaesthesia in patients undergoing coronary artery surgery. Haemodynamic data (regarding systemic and coronary circulation) showed an almost similar pattern of change after induction, intubation, skin incision and sterotomy, except for a greater decrease of systemic vascular resistances after induction in patients who received propofol. Cardiac output decreased more in the isoflurane group while changes in coronary sinus flow were equal in the two groups.
