Physiological and clinical impact in the carotid baroreceptor function following the surgical management of bilateral carotid body tumors

CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative autonomic assessment confirmed BRF in all studied patients that underwent staged bilateral CBT resection with mixed, sympathetic, and parasympathetic dysfunction. Further studies are necessary to evaluate the incidence and physiological mechanisms of these sequelae to anticipate possible complications and offer the appropriate perioperative management.PMID:36394214 | DOI:10.1177/17085381221140167
