Abstract

Oncologic patients comprise a consistent if not significant portion of surgical patients. Many of these patients will have undergone perioperative treatment for their diseases by means of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of the two. With regard to the chemotherapeutic agents, specific preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative anesthetic considerations must be taken when providing care to this special subset of surgical patients.
