Abstract: The levels of thyroid hormones are well known to respond to anesthetics and surgical stresses. The conversion of T4 to T3 is also affected by liver function. The effects of enflurane and epidural anesthesia on the intraoperative plasma thyroid hormone levels were studied in 19 operative patients with or without liver dysfunction. This study demonstrates that the T3 plasma levels decrease during surgery undergoing both epidural and enflurane anesthesia, but T4 plasma levels increase during surgery. And the liver acts as hepatic thyroxine store and modifier of thyroid hormone metabolism.
