Objectives: Assessment of microcirculation is thought to be a surrogate of tissue perfusion and anesthetic drugs are known to alter the microcirculation in cardiac surgery patients, but their effects in less complicated non-cardiac surgery remain unknown. Our aim is to investigate the effects of sevoflurane and desflurane on the microcirculation parameters during non-cardiac surgery.
