    Interesting.  I know with other cancers (breast , ovarian) they have studied if there was any benefit to using propofol instead of inhalation agents during resection surgery but the results proved inconclusive.  When Kathy had her surgery, Mt Sinai was part of a randomized clinical trial comparing the same thing.  I must also warn though in the article above they mentioned  cellular exposure to propofol for 24-72 hours- prolonged exposure to propofol in humans (especially over 48 hours) can lead to severe complications such as  propofol infusion syndrome.
