Conference paper


It is admitted that the halogenated volatile anesthetics induce cerebral vasodilatation with a resulting increase of intracranial pressure. The purpose of this study is to control the effects of enflu-rane and halothane on ICP, blood pressure (SAP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP).
