The spine surgery performed in the prone position could cause severe complications such as visual acuity impairment, spinal infarct and rhabdomyolysis. When treating rhabdomyolysis, it is important to prevent acute renal failure from accompanying rhabdomyolysis due to the poor prognosis. We have experienced two cases of rhabdomyolysis after spine surgery where dark urine was present during spine surgery under general anesthesia. Anesthesiologists should pay attention for early diagnosis and treatment of the rhabdomyolysis developing during the spine surgery.
Key Words: Acute renal failure; Prone position; Rhabdomyolysis; Spine surgery
