Abstract

A Swan-Canz catheter has been used in 10 consecutive patients undergoing pelvic exenteration and has made the intraoperative and postoperative management of these patients a much easier task. Use of this catheter eliminates the guesswork involved in managing fluid and volume status by providing an accurate assessment of left ventricular end diastolic pressure. The complication rate is reported as 5% and consists mostly of ruptured balloons, infection, coiling of the catheter, and cardiac irritability. There have been no complications in the 10 patients in whom we have used the catheter. We believe that the use of the Swan-Ganz catheter in these difficult-to-manage patients is justified because of its low complication rate, easy use, and the accurate valuable information obtained.
