Summary of "Severe and Prolonged Hypotension After Oral 5-Aminolevulinic Acid Administration in a Patient With End-Stage Renal Disease Undergoing Transurethral Resection of a Bladder Tumor: A Case Report."

A 72-year-old man with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing transurethral resection of a bladder tumor experienced severe and prolonged hypotension after receiving oral 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA). Continuous infusions of norepinephrine and vasopressin ultimately resolved the hypotension over the course of 26 hours. It is uncertain whether 5-ALA is causative or is a contributing factor that influences other factors, such as hypovolemia after hemodialysis and autonomic nerve dysfunction associated with ESRD. Our findings suggest that anesthesiologists should be aware of the possible occurrence of hypotension after administration of 5-ALA, and urologists should consider intravesical 5-ALA administration in patients with ESRD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Severe systemic manifestation of trauma and ischemia involving soft tissues, principally skeletal muscle, due to prolonged severe crushing. It leads to increased permeability of the cell membrane and to the release of potassium, enzymes, and myoglobin from within cells. Ischemic renal dysfunction secondary to hypotension and diminished renal perfusion results in acute tubular necrosis and uremia.

Measurement of this acid in the urine after oral administration of histidine provides the basis for the diagnostic test of folic acid deficiency and of megaloblastic anemia of pregnancy.

Administration of low doses of a drug or a drug combination over prolonged periods of time usually at a regular interval.

A broad-spectrum semisynthetic antibiotic similar to AMPICILLIN except that its resistance to gastric acid permits higher serum levels with oral administration.

A compound produced from succinyl-CoA and GLYCINE as an intermediate in heme synthesis. It is used as a PHOTOCHEMOTHERAPY for actinic KERATOSIS.
