ANESTHESIA FOR NEUROSURGERY Dr Sonam Norbu Dr Jyoti Pathania Goals of Neuroanesthesia Deep anesthetic level with adequate muscle relaxation and blunting response to intubation, pins and craniotomy No increase ICP, CBV, BP and No decrease in CPP, CBF, BP No hypoxia No coughing
INTRACRANIAL PRESSURE ICP is determined by the raltionship of the volume of intracranial contents(brain+blood+CSF=12001500cm3) and the volume of the cranial vault (fixed by rigid dura and skull bone). ELASTANCE is the relationship of pressure and volume (dP/dV). In normal condition a small increase in intracranial volume will not result in ICP. COMPLIANCE is the relationship of volume and pressure (dV/dP) i.e. inverse of Elastance. Initially, as intracranial volume increases, no change in ICP occurs (point A, well compensated) until point B where any further increase will cause dramatic increase in ICP (point C).

Medication reviwed : corticosteroid, diuretic, anticonvulsant therapy laboratory evaluation : steroid-induced hyperglycemia electrolyte disturbance by diuretics or ADH anticonvulsant level should be measured. Premedication normal ICP : benzodiazepine intracranial hypertension : Avoid premedication ( respiratory depression : hypercapnia ICP ) Corticosteroid and anticonvulsant: cont until surgery. ANESTHESIA & CRANIOTOMY FOR PATIENTS WITH MASS LESIONS INTRAOPERATIVE MANAGEMENT Monitoring 1) standard monitoring

ANESTHESIA FOR SURGERY IN THE POSTERIOR FOSSA(1) Obstructive Hydrocephalus infratentorially located mass : obstruct flow of CSF & increase ICP ICP prior to induction GA ventriculostomy (LA) Brain Stem Injury posterior fossa operation : cranial nerve injury circulatory and respiratory brain stem center Damage to respiratory center : circulatory change, abrupt change in BP, HR, cardiac rhythm abnormal respiratory pattern or inability to maintain a
patent airway following extubation brain stem injury Brain stem auditory evoked potentials useful(8th N). Positioning Modified lateral, prone, sitting position (preferred) Position head is always above heart. Careful positioning avoid injuries ANESTHESIA FOR SURGERY IN THE POSTERIOR FOSSA(2) Pneumocephalus sitting position - pneumocephalus CSF is lost air enters subarachnoid space Dural closeure pneumocephalus compress the brain
Postoperative pneumocephalus : delayed awakening and impairment of neurological function Venous Air Embolism (1) Wound is above heart level sitting craniotomy (20-40%) Physiological consequences depend on vol. and rate of air entry , patent foramen ovale ( paradoxical air embolism ) Air bubble venous sys. pul. Circulation (diffuse into the alveoli ) Sign : ETCO2 and o2 saturation sudden hypotension rapid & large amounts of air sudden circulatory arrest ANESTHESIA FOR SURGERY IN THE POSTERIOR FOSSA(3)
Venous Air Embolism (2) A. Central Venous Catheterization : allow aspiration of entrained air catheter confirm : TEE or intravascular electrocardiography(biphasic P wave) B. Monitoring For Venous Air Embolism most sensitive intraop. Monitor : TEE and precordial Doppler sonography changes ETCO2 and pul. a. pr. : less sensitive but can detect venous air embolism before clinical signs are present sx. : sudden decrease in ETCO2 ( pul. Dead space ) mean pulmonary artery pressure change in BP, & Heart sound late manifestation ANESTHESIA FOR SURGERY IN THE POSTERIOR FOSSA(4) Venous Air Embolism (3)

Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score : severity of injury and outcome ( ex. GCS score < 8 35 % mortality ) ANESTHESIA FOR HEAD TRAUMA(2) PREOPERATIVE MANAGEMENT(1) Patency of the airway, adequacy of ventilation & oxygenation, correction of systemic hypotension Airway Obx and hypoventilation are common. Pul. contusion, fat emboli, or neurogenic pul.edema :
complication 70% hypoxemia Pt with hypoventilation, absent gag reflex, or GCS< 8 -> Tracheal intubation and hyperventilation Intubation full stomach , in-line axial stabilization. Following preoxygenation and hyperventilation thiopental or propofol and rapid-onset NMBA: biunt intubation response. Hypotensive(sys <100mmHg) : small dose thiopental or propofol, or etomidate Succinylcholine in closed head injury controversial ( ICP , hyperkalemia)
If difficult intubation : awake intubation, fiberoptic techniques, or ANESTHESIA FOR HEAD TRAUMA(3) Hypotension Head trauma: hypotension : related to other associated injury (intra-abdominal) spinal cord injury ; sympathectomy associated with spinal shock Hypotension : - by colloid solution and blood (preventing brain edema) - severe hypotension: vasopressor glucose-containing or hypotonic solution should not be used Hct >30% invasive monitoring intraarterial pr. , central venous or pul. a. pr, ICP...

Pt with Persistent elevation in ICP : little or no premedication to avoid hypercapnia INTRAOPERATIVE MANAGEMENT(1) Surgery can result in rupture or rebleeding :blood should be available anesthetic Mx focus : preventing rupture or rebleeding intraarterial and central venous(or pulmonary artery) pressure monitoring mannitol : dura is opened
ANESTHESIA & CRANIOTOMY FOR INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSMS & ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATION(5) INTRAOPERATIVE MANAGEMENT(2) controlled hypotension is useful (1) decrease transmural tension across the aneurysm (2) rupture less likely and facilitates surgical clipping (3) blood loss head-up position with volatile anesthesia(Iso.) enhance the effect of hypotensive agent. Thiopental and mild hypothermia : protect Brain during prolonged or excessive hypotension.
Depending upon neurological condition:most pt extubated at the end of surgery Rapid awakening : allow neurological evaluation before transfer to ICU. ANESTHESIA FOR SURGERY ON THE SPINE(1) PREOPERATIVE MANAGEMENT Any existing ventilatory impairment and airway anatomic abn. and limited neck movement complicate airway management. neurological deficits (DOCUMENTED)
