Adequate restoration of intravascular volume remains an important therapeutic maneuver in managing the surgical patient. Definition of the ideal volume replacement strategy still remains one of the burning problems. Firstly, the choice between colloid and crystalloid solutions continues to generate controversy. Secondly, the highly controversial crystalloid/colloid dispute has been enlarged to a colloid/colloid debate because of the increasing number of colloids that are available. And lastly, whether high or low volume replacement strategies are favorable for the surgical patient is an another issue for the anesthesiologists. Volume replacement has been hitherto often based on art, dogma and personal beliefs. It was the aim of this overview to present the different solutions and to facilitate the strategies for above three main issues in the field of intraoperative fluid therapy.
Key Words: Colloid; Crystalloid; Fluid therapy; Intraoperative; Volume replacement
