ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 40 year-old woman with a medical history of acute controlled hypertension with a baseline blood pressure (BP). It states that the patient was presented for an open adrenalectomy, treated with terazosin and was delivered for postoperative analgesia. It also discusses the importance of optimal anesthetic management to avoid complications and to ensure a successful surgical procedure on patients with pheochromocytoma.
