Pediatric Neuroanesthesia

  • Badr A. Ishak


Several factors are responsible for the advances we witnessed over the last decade in the field of pediatric neurosurgery. Better understanding of the pathophysiology of increased intracranial pressure and its control, the pharmacological effects of anesthetic agents on the cerebral blood flow and metabolism, preoperative control of metabolic disturbances, specialized postoperative intensive care units, aggressive invasive monitoring, and newer diagnostic tools, such as computed transmission tomography and somatosensory evoked potentials, enabled the pediatric neurosurgeon to deal successfully with lesions considered inoperable a few years ago.
