Abstract
Fentanyl, an opioid analgesic with a high hepatic extraction ratio, is frequently used to supplement general anesthesia during liver transplantation and is also continuously infused to provide postoperative analgesia. However, because fentanyl is metabolized mainly in the liver, the pharmacokinetics of fentanyl may vary widely during the different phases of the surgery, potentially leading to adverse events. Using nonlinear mixed-effects modeling, we characterized the pharmacokinetics of fentanyl in 15 patients (American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Status Classification 2 or 3) undergoing living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT). Fentanyl was continuously infused at the rate of 200-400νg/h throughout the operation. The time course of the fentanyl plasma concentration levels was best described in terms of a two-compartment model. Estimates were made of the pharmacokinetic parameters during the preanhepatic, anhepatic, and neohepatic phases: central volume of distribution (V 1) (l): 59.0 hourly volume infused by rapid infusion system (RIS) × 42.5, 113.0, and 189.0, respectively, × (body weight/69) 1.3; peripheral volume of distribution (V 2) (l): 94.3, 412.0, and 427.0, respectively; intercompartmental clearance (Q) (l/h): 96.4 × (cardiac output (CO)/6.7) 2.5, 22.6, and 28.2, respectively; metabolic clearance (Cl) (l/h): 21.7 during the preanhepatic and neohepatic phases, and 0 during the anhepatic phase. The preanhepatic central volume of distribution was found to be markedly influenced by the massive infusion of fluids and blood products. The more hyperdynamic the circulation was during the preanhepatic phase, the higher the distributional clearance. © 2011 American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics.
