Anesthesia with irregular heartbeat - risks?

Has anyone with irregular heartbeats had surgery in which they were put under IV sedation? I've heard some of the anesthetic agents can cause irreg. heartbeats; that makes me wonder how it will affect people who already have irreg. heartbeats. I'm seeing a dr. about it, but I also like to hear from people who have been through it. I may get surgery in May on my foot. I have concerns about the anesthesia and how it will affect me.

Depends on the type of irregular rhythm and what causes it. My cardiologist cleared me for anesthesia, but said I needed to keep taking my heart meds and so they adjusted whatever they used to put me under. Still had some irregular beats but did just fine.
