Interaction between etomidate and beta tumoral necrosis factor on hemodynamic response after cardiac surgery
Critical Care volume 19, Article number: P496 (2015)
The use of etomidate is a risk factor for relative adrenal insufficiency in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) . The objective was to determine the possible interaction between etomidate and beta tumoral necrosis factor (TNFβ) polymorphism on hemodynamics after CPB.
A prospective cohort study on CPB patients who received etomidate or not during anesthetic induction during 2008 to 2011. Demographic and postoperative variables were collected. We tested the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium in order to avoid selection bias. V18 SPSS was used.
We studied 433 patients undergoing CPB, 285 (65.8%) men and 148 (34.2%) women, 66 ± 6 years, EuroSCORE I 5.3 ± 4%. TNFβ was in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (χ2: 0.6; P = 0.42). A total of 254 (58.7%) patients received etomidate, 152 out of them required vasoactive drugs. Homozygous G was defined as unfavorable TNFβ versus the A allele . Using the general linear model after adjusting for sex and amines dose at 4 hours, an independent association was observed between the systemic vascular resistance index (SVRI) at 4 hours and the use of etomidate (F: 18; P < 0.001): 1,849 (95% CI: 1,673 to 2,024) versus 2,493 (95% CI: 2,258 to 2,729) dinas.seg/cm5.m2, the presence of homozygous G (F: 6.5; P = 0.01), and also showed a significant etomidate-homozygous G interaction (F: 22.8: P < 0.001): 1,687 (95% CI: 1,350 to 2,023) versus 3,041 (95% CI: 2,589 to 3,492) dinas seg/cm5. m2 (Figure 1).
Etomidate use is associated with lower postoperative SVRI which is increased in the presence of G homozygosity for TNFβ polymorphism.
