Abstract

Free flap perfusion and arterial pressure management have always had a crucial role in free flap reconstruction. Blood pressure values requested can be reached either by using vasoactive agents or fluid replacement or the combination of both.1,2 In contrast to the most frequently tested phenylephrine, norepinephrine, and dobutamine,3,4 this work evaluates dopamine efficacy in perioperative blood pressure management. In our institution, dopamine infusion is the only vasoactive agent authorized in a non-intensive care unit department. This drug stimulates α- and β-adrenergic receptors with positive chronotropic and inotropic effects and reduces peripheral vascular resistance helping in this way to achieve an increase of blood pressure and free flap perfusion.5
