Abstract

When general anesthesia is administered for patients considered at high risk for rhabdomyolysis, appropriate precautions are warranted. The use of suitable anesthetics, with attention to intravenous fluid management, electrolyte balance, respiration, and metabolism, should be addressed. We performed general anesthesia for dental treatment and biopsy for fibrous hyperplasia of the buccal mucosa in a patient with a history of rhabdomyolysis. We utilized thiamylal sodium, midazolam, rocuronium bromide, nitrous oxide, fentanyl, and remifentanil without using volatile anesthetics and propofol for this case. No complications of rhabdomyolysis were noted.
