Neuroleptanesthesia using Innovar and nitrous oxide-oxygen was administered to 56 surgical patients. The following are the results: 1) Muscle rigidity involving the thorax was observed during the induction phase, which resulterl in marked resistance to passive inflation of the chest. Intravenous administration of succinylcholine chloride provided effective control. 2) Respiratory depression was profound, but was of shorter duration than with other narcotics. 3) Circulatory stability was remarkable during and after operation, being particularly valuable in the elderly and poor risk patients. 4) Analgesia and sedation extended well into the postoperative period, minimizing the need for narcotics. 5) Recovery from anesthesia was rapid and smooth. The anesthetic method facilitated postanesthetic management, and complications were rare. 6) Liver function did not seem to be significantly affected by the agents employed.
