Recent function, fluoride formation and excretion were studied in 7 patients during and after enflurane anesthesia and surgery. The mean maximal plasma level of fluoride was 17.4 μM. It was reached 2 hr after termination of anesthesia. Pre-operatively, fractional fluoride clearance (CF/CIn) was 0.31. During anesthesia and surgery it decreased to 0.10 and postoperatively rose to 0.55 and 0.77 during 2 consecutive measurement periods. There was a highly significant correlation (P <0.001) between this increase in CF/CIn and the simultaneous rise in urinary pH between the 2 periods (r = 0.91).
