Background: The present study was conducted to assess hemodynamic changes during extraction in controlled hypertensive patients.
Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on patients of undergoing extractions of both genders. Patients were divided into 2 groups of 32 each. Group I received articaine with 4% epinephrine and group II received 3% mepivacaine without vasoconstrictor. In all patients, blood pressure (diastolic and systolic) and heart rate was compared. Results: SBP (mm Hg) in group I before extraction was 126.4 and 130.2 in group II. DBP (mm Hg) was 92.6 in group I and 90.4 in group II. Heart rate was 82.4 in group I and 80.6 in group II. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). SBP (mm Hg) in group I after extraction was 130.4 and 134.2 in group II. DBP (mm Hg) was 94.2 in group I and 92.8 in group II. Heart rate was 84.6 in group I and 82.2 in group II. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). Conclusion: No significant hemodynamic changes were seen to anesthetic use with a vasoconstrictor and without vasoconstrictor.
Key words: Blood pressure, Extraction, hemodynamic changes.
