CARRASCO, Rolando et al. Evaluation of mean arterial blood pressure during dental implant surgery. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2014, vol.36, n.3, pp.95-98. ISSN 2173-9161.

Introduction: The stress situations like an oral surgery can increase the blood catecholamines, producing an increased arterial blood pressure to levels that could damage health. This study attempt to determine whether there is a statistically significant variation in the arterial blood pressure during dental implant surgery. Materials and method: We registered the blood pressure - systolic (SP) and diastolic (DP)- to 30 subjects undergoing implant surgery with the Dina map Pro 400 monitor. We calculated the mean arterial blood pressure (MP) and finally we determined the difference between initial mean blood pressure and the highest blood pressure value reached at surgery. Results: The mean of the initial mean blood pressure was 91.452 mmHg and the mean of highest mean blood pressure reached during surgery was 104.476 mmHg, obtaining statistically significant differences (P=.0005). Conclusion: As there was a significant increase in the MP values recorded in subjects during dental implant surgery, this should be taken into account in all patients undergoing to this procedure, and particularly in those with hypertension, to avoid possible complications.
