Lai, Y K (1989) Adverse effect of intraoperative phenylephrine 10%: case report. The British journal of ophthalmology, 73 (6). pp. 468-9. ISSN 0007-1161Full text not available from this repository.
The case is reported of a patient who suffered severe acute hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia, and myocardial infarction probably as a direct effect of phenylephrine overdose. Instillation of the drops during surgery probably enhanced the systemic absorption of a significant amount of the drug. Therefore it should be used during surgery with caution, especially in elderly patients and those with cardiovascular disease.
