ABSTRACT
Context: The modern practice of anesthesia is highly dependent ona group of anesthetic drugs which many of them are metabolized in the liver. Evidence Acquisition: The liver, of course, usually tolerates this burden. However, this is not always an unbroken rule. Anesthetic induced apoptosis has gained great concern during the last years; especially considering the neurologic system. Results: However, we have evidence that there is some concern regarding their effects on the liver cells. Fortunately not all the anesthetics are blamed and even some could be used safely, based on the available evidence. Conclusions: Besides, there are some novel agents, yet under research, which could affect the future of anesthetic agents' fate regarding their hepatic effects.
