Background. More than 100 million adults are exposed to noncardiac surgical interventions every year worldwide, and cardiovascular complications happen in 500 000 - 900 000 patients.Aim. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of beta-blocker bisoprolol in the perioperative period in hypertensive patients during routine laparoscopic cholecystectomy.Material and Methods. Hypertensive patients (n=123) scheduled for laparoscopic cholecystectomy were examined. Patients were randomized into 2 groups. Patients of group 1 (n=57) received preoperatively bisoprolol, and patients of group 2 (n=66) had a correction of previously received antihypertensive therapy without beta-blockers addition. Patient examination included traditional preoperative tests as well as ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and echocardiography.Results. Heart rate was significantly lower in group 1 at admission (66.1±6.9 min-1) and before surgery (61.3±6.1 min-1) than in group 2 (74,5±8,2 and 73,9±7,0 min-1, respectively, p
