Abstract: The article describes the case of a torsade de pointes resulting from acute prolonged QT interval prolongation in a diabetic patient anesthetized with sevoflurane. Torsade de pointes is a type of ventricular tachycardia. The patient, who was undergoing a laparoscopic nephrectomy, was successfully resuscitated and completely recovered. The case suggests that during prolonged surgery, acute QT interval prolongation should be monitored in any patients with poorly controlled diabetes.
