Tumours in eloquent brain areas, otherwise considered as inoperable. Temporary episodes

Tumours in eloquent brain areas, otherwise considered as inoperable. Temporary episodes of desaturation and hypercapnia occurred more often in the AC group. Blood pressure was lower in the AC group during application of head clamp pins and emergence and the AC group required less vasopressors intraoperatively. AC provides adequate sedation, analgesia and a smooth wake-up during the period of neurological monitoring with stable haemodynamic and acceptable respiratory parameters compared to general anaesthesia. AC group showed less PONV and pain postoperatively. Description of a new anaesthesiological protocol and patient outcomes for the first RDX5791 chemical information patients undergoing AC surgery in this institution. To assess the safety and effectiveness of AC in comparison to GA for lesions close to the eloquent cortex. The safety and effectiveness of AC in 25 patients should be described.

Implementation of the new anaesthesiological approach was successful, with a low operative morbidity and rate of anaesthesia complications, short surgery time, and well tolerance by the patients. AC patients showed a significantly better neurological outcome, faster discharge times and an uneventful surgery. AC in selected patients is an effective, safe and practical procedure, which is accompanied with a short hospital and ICU length of stay. AC was well tolerated and showed a low rate of complications, with the benefit of maximal tumour excision and a potentially better patient outcome. AC is safe, practical, and effective during resection of supratentorial lesions of diverse pathological range and location. 01/2005-12/ 2010 415 2 groups were retrospectively built.
