  • Comparison of Monitored Anesthesia Care with Propofol Versus
           Dexmedetomidine for Awake Craniotomy: A Retrospective study

    • Authors: Thakkar; Keta, Mariappan, Ramamani, Prabhu, Krishna, Yadav, Bijesh, Singh, Georgene
      Abstract: Background Anesthetic agents used for awake craniotomy should be safe, short-acting, titratable, and provide an adequate level of sedation and analgesia, along with facilitating adequate neurological assessment during the functional testing. Our study aims to review the efficacy and safety profile, along with the potential for neurophysiological monitoring, of two commonly used anesthetic regimens, i.e., propofol and dexmedetomidine. Methods After the Ethics Committee approval, a retrospective analysis of 51 patients who underwent awake craniotomy for brain tumor excision over a period of 7 years was done. Those who received monitored anesthesia care (MAC) were divided into two groups, namely, Group P for that received propofol, and Group D that received dexmedetomidine and their hemodynamic profile, perioperative complications, neuromonitoring techniques, and postoperative course was noted from the records. Results A total of 31 patients were administered MAC with propofol and 20 with dexmedetomidine. The baseline demographic data, duration of surgery, intensive care unit (ICU), and hospital stay were comparable between the two. The hemodynamic profile as assessed by the heart rate and blood pressure was also comparable. The incidence of intraoperative seizures was found to be less in Group P, though. Episodes of transient desaturation were observed more in Group P (9.7%) than in Group D (5%), but none of the patients required conversion to general anesthesia. Direct cortical stimulation was satisfactorily elicited in 80% in Group P and 85% in Group D. Conclusions MAC with propofol and dexmedetomidine are acceptable techniques with comparable hemodynamic profile, intraoperative and postoperative complications, and potential for neurophysiological monitoring.

  • Comparison of Perioperative Characteristics and Clinical Outcomes of
           COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 Patients Undergoing Neurosurgery—A
           Retrospective Analysis

    • Authors: Mishra; Rajeeb K., Sriganesh, Kamath, Surve, Rohini M., Sangeetha, R.P., Chakrabarti, Dhritiman, Shashidhar, Abhinith, Anju, Janaki L
      Abstract: Background Patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) presenting for neurosurgery are not rare. Considering the lack of literature informing the outcomes in this subset, present study was conducted to compare perioperative management and postoperative outcomes between COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 neurosurgical patients. Methods After ethics committee approval, data of all patients with COVID-19 along with an equal number of age and diagnosis matched non-COVID-19 patients undergoing neurosurgery between April 2020 and January 2021 was analyzed retrospectively. Predictors of poor outcome were identified using multivariate logistic regression analysis. Results During the study period, 50 COVID-19 patients (28 laboratory confirmed (group-C) and 22 clinicoradiological diagnosed [group-CR]) underwent neurosurgery and were compared with 50 matched non-COVID-19 patients. Preoperatively, clinicoradiological diagnosed COVID-19 patients had higher American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) grade (p = 0.01), lower Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score (p

  • Retrospective Analysis of 1998 Patients Diagnosed with Brain Death between
           2011 and 2019 in Turkey

    • Authors: Sipahioglu; Hilal, Elay, Gulseren, Bingol, Nezahat, Bahar, Ilhan
      Abstract: Background Organ transplantation reduces mortality and morbidity in patients with end-stage organ failure. The number of living organ donations is not enough to meet the current organ transplantation need; therefore, there is an urgent need for organ donation from cadavers. We aimed to determine the organ donation rates and reveal the obstacles against donation. Methods This study is designed as a retrospective multicenter study consisting of eight university hospitals, three training and research hospitals, 26 state hospitals, and 74 private hospitals in nine provinces in Turkey. A total of 1,998 patients diagnosed with brain death between January 2011 to April 2019 were examined through the electronic medical records data system. Results Median patient age was 38 (IQR: 19–57), and 1,275 (63.8%) patients were male. The median time between the intensive care unit admission and brain death diagnosis was 56 (IQR:2–131) hours. The most commonly used confirmatory diagnostic test was computed tomography in 216 (30.8%) patients, and the most common cause of brain death was intraparenchymal hemorrhage with 617 (30.9%) patients. A total of 1,646 (82.4%) families refused to permit organ donation. The most common reasons for refusal were family disagreement (68%), social/relative pressure (24%), and religious beliefs (8%). Conclusions Many families refuse permission for organ donation; some of the provinces included in this study experienced years of exceptionally high refusal rates.

  • Association of ABO Blood Group Antigen and Neurological Tumors

    • Authors: Patidar; Gopal K., Dhiman, Yashaswi, Hazarika, Anjali
      Abstract: Background Various risk factors for tumors such as smoking, alcohol consumption, diet, and radiation, etc., were already identified. ABO blood group antigens are also present on epithelia, endothelia, and neurons. Recent evidence suggested the role of ABO antigens in the pathogenesis of certain malignancies. Materials and Methods A retrospective observational study was conducted in a tertiary care neurosurgical center in North India from January 2016 to December 2018. The hospital information system was used to obtain patient information while the blood center information system was used to collect blood group information. Brain tumors were majorly divided into cavernoma, glioma, meningioma, neuroma, pituitary adenoma, schwannoma, and others. Results We found a total of 1,970 patients with brain tumors admitted during our study period. Most patients had glioma (33.55%), followed by pituitary adenoma (20.05%) and neuroma (2.23%). B blood group individuals had more prevalence of cavernoma, glioma, meningioma, pituitary adenoma, schwannoma, and others followed by O, A, and AB. Only association of O blood group with neuroma tumor was found statistically significant. Conclusions Our patient population had blood group distribution similar to our general population and no significant association was observed by blood group antigens and brain tumors. Although neuroma was significantly associated with blood group O but the prevalence of neuroma in our patient population is very low hence large sample study is required to draw a firm conclusion regarding this association.

  • Pediatric Microcuff Tube for Neurosurgical Procedures: A Boon or Bane'

    • Authors: Thakkar; Keta, Sethuraman, Manikandan, Hrishi, Ajay P.
      Abstract: Pediatric Microcuff endotracheal tubes have come into vogue in the last few years. It overcomes the problems faced with the uncuffed or conventional cuffed tubes used in the pediatric population. In addition, the more distal placement of the polyurethane cuffs in these tubes eliminates the risk of airway mucosal injury and hence postoperative stridor. This makes it an attractive option for neurosurgical patients where there is a high incidence of cranial nerve deficit, airway edema, and the requirement of prolonged postoperative ventilation. But due to this particular design, Murphy's eye is not incorporated in the tube, which can potentially hamper ventilation, especially when used for long duration surgery. With the help of our case report, we would like to warn the readers regarding this life-threatening complication that resulted in hypoxia in a 1-year-old child in the postoperative period.

  • Effects of Magnesium Sulfate on Intraoperative Blood Loss and Anesthetic
           Requirement in Meningioma Patients Undergoing Craniotomy with Tumor
           Removal: A Prospective Randomized Study

    • Authors: Jitsinthunun; Thanawut, Raksakietisak, Manee, Pantubtim, Chanitda, Mahatnirunkul, Porntip
      Abstract: Background Meningioma brain tumor is associated with significant blood loss. Magnesium (Mg), a calcium blocker, can facilitate blood pressure control during surgery. This study aimed to evaluate effects of magnesium on blood loss, anesthetic requirement, and its neuroprotective effect in meningioma patients undergoing craniotomy. Methods Eighty patients aged between 18 and 70, American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status I and II, diagnosed with meningioma and scheduled for craniotomy tumor removal were randomized into two groups. Group M (Mg) received intravenous magnesium sulfate 40 mg/kg over 30 minutes initiated at skin incision and followed by continuous infusion of 10 mg/kg/h until dura closure. Group N (NSS) received 0.9% NaCl as placebo. Anesthesiologists in charge, surgeons, and patients were all blinded. The assessed outcomes were perioperative blood loss, anesthetic requirement, and pre- and postoperative neurocognitive functions assessed by Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA). Results Thirty-eight patients in each group were analyzed. In group M, the intraoperative blood losses were 500 (70, 2300) mL, and 510 (100, 1600) mL in group N (p = 0.315). Patients who received blood within 24 hours were 39.5% in group M and 47.4% in group N (p = 0.644). No differences were observed in anesthetic requirement, intraoperative mean arterial pressure, hypotensive episodes, and vasopressor usages. There were no significant differences in postoperative MoCA score. Magnesium levels did not exceed acceptable levels. Conclusions Magnesium administration in meningioma patients had no significant effects on blood loss, anesthetic requirement, and postoperative cognitive function.

  • Delayed Aspiration of Air Emboli from the Central Venous Catheter in a
           Case of Suspected Massive Venous Air Embolism: A Therapeutic Success

    • Authors: Khandelwal; Ankur, Nayak, Sudhansu S., Bhatia, Anshil, Shrivastava, Amit K., Bhardwaj, Vikas
      Abstract: Venous air embolism (VAE), though, clinically benign in majority of cases, the significant ones can lead to life-threatening cardiopulmonary and neurological consequences. Though studies mention the success rate of only 6 to 16% in aspirating air from the central venous catheter (CVC) during VAE, the technique is very specific for diagnosing VAE and has high therapeutic significance. We report a case in which delayed aspiration of air emboli from the CVC in suspected massive VAE during decompressive craniectomy resulted in rapid resolution of hemodynamic instability. If not inserted previously, CVC may be considered in a hemodynamically unstable patient with suspected VAE.

  • Incidence and Perioperative Risk Factors of Delayed Extubation following
           Pediatric Craniotomy for Intracranial Tumor: A 10-Year Retrospective
           Analysis in a Thailand Hospital

    • Authors: Sangtongjaraskul; Sunisa, Yuwapattanawong, Kornkamon, Sae-phua, Vorrachai, Jearranaiprepame, Thichapat, Paarporn, Paweena
      Abstract: Background The determination of extubation (early or delayed) after pediatric craniotomy for intracranial tumor should be carefully considered because each has its pros and cons. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of the delayed extubation in these patients. The secondary goal was to identify the perioperative factors influencing the determination of delayed extubation. Methods This retrospective study was performed in pediatric patients with intracranial tumor who underwent craniotomy at a university hospital between April 2010 and March 2020. Preoperative and intraoperative variables were examined. The variables were compared between the delayed extubation and early extubation group. Results Forty-two of 286 pediatric patients were in the delayed extubation group with an incidence of 14.69%. According to multivariate analyses, the risk factors that prompted delayed extubation were the intracranial tumor size ≥ 55 mm (adjusted odds ratio [AOR], 2.338; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.032–5.295; p = 0.042), estimated blood loss (EBL) ≥ 40% of calculated blood volume (AOR, 11.959; 95% CI, 3.457–41.377; p

  • Type-2 Neurofibromatosis Patient with Parasagittal Meningioma: A
           Challenging Airway

    • Authors: Depuru; Aparna, Barik, Amiya K., Jangra, Kiran, Panda, Nidhi B.
      Abstract: The anesthetic management of a type-2 neurofibromatosis patient with a difficult airway is quite challenging. Such a situation tests the limits of the anesthesiologist's preparedness in maintaining the balance of the cerebral protection strategies and securing the airway. The anticipated challenges include managing the airway, controlling the raised intracranial pressure, and maintaining stable hemodynamics in anticipation of the expected blood loss. This article focuses on the preoperative airway evaluation and intraoperative preparedness in case of a patient with type-2 neurofibromatosis scheduled for craniotomy and excision of intracranial meningioma.

  • Management of a Patient with Bombay Blood Group and Chronic Liver Disease
           with Subdural Hematoma

    • Authors: Chavali; Siddharth, Raju, Subodh, Kanasani, Suresh, Gabbita, Abhirama C.
      Abstract: The Bombay blood group is an extremely rare entity within the conventional ABO blood grouping system. End-stage liver disease also presents with myriad disorders of coagulation due to impaired synthesis and dysfunction of clotting factors, which predisposes patients to spontaneous and life-threatening episodes of bleeding. We report a patient with Bombay blood group and end-stage liver disease who presented to our hospital with a spontaneous subdural hematoma. Although conventional parameters of coagulation in this patient were abnormal, we were able to safely defer product transfusion because his thromboelastography (TEG) report was within acceptable ranges. In this article, we discuss our strategy for optimization of extremely limited blood resources in this scenario and perioperative strategies for the management of coagulation anomalies in patients with liver dysfunction.

  • Can the Processed EEG Be Utilized as a Cerebral Ischemia Monitor during
           the Temporary Clip Application in Anterior Circulation Aneurysm
           Surgery'

    • Authors: Mariappan; Ramamani, Krothapalli, Srinivasa B., Nair, Bijesh R., Alexander, Benjamin F.
      Abstract: Patients undergoing cerebral aneurysm clipping are at risk for cerebral ischemia. Ischemic tolerance varies among individuals. Hence, multimodal intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) is essential. IONM is not available in many centers. This case report highlights the utilization of processed electroencephalography (EEG) as a cerebral ischemia monitor during temporary clip application. Our patient underwent clipping of a ruptured anterior-communicating artery aneurysm. After the temporary clip applications on the right and left, A1 arterial segments led to a transient drop of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs). At the same time, the frontal four-channel processed EEG showed a burst suppression (BS) pattern. Blood pressure augmentation and the removal of temporary clips helped restore the SSEP back to baseline and the disappearance of the BS pattern in processed EEG. During the steady state of anesthesia, the sudden appearance of the BS pattern in processed EEG can be attributed to clip-induced cerebral ischemia after ruling out other potential causes for BS.

  • Anesthetic Implications of Nephrotic Syndrome in Neurosurgical Practice

    • Authors: Puthiyedath; Roshna C., Kumar, Ashutosh, Praveen, Ranganatha, Sethuraman, Manikandan
      Abstract: Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is a common medical disorder especially in pediatric population with hypoproteinemia as an important feature. NS has multisystem involvement and multiple organ effects due to the disease or the treatment itself, which has important implications in the perioperative period. Hypoproteinemia in NS can result in reduction in availability of protein binding sites for certain intravenous anesthetics, leading to their increased free fraction that can concentrate at the receptor sites, thereby prolonging their action. NS can have phases of relapse and remission with increased propensity for complications, such as thromboembolism during relapse phase. Such patients presenting for neurosurgery pose unique challenge to the anesthesiologist. We hereby report a case of NS and its implication in neurosurgical practice and management.

  • A Rare Case of Drug Interaction Presenting as Perioperative Hyperthermia
           in a Patient Presenting for Neurosurgery

    • Authors: Suresh; Sapna, Hrishi, Ajay P., Sethuraman, Manikandan
      Abstract: Perioperative hyperthermia has many differential diagnoses. This case report describes the rare causation of perioperative hyperthermia in a patient presenting for epilepsy surgery. The patient had two episodes of hyperthermia, initially post-anesthetic induction and later in the immediate post-operative period. The quest for the etiology sheds light on a rare drug interaction between topiramate, an antiepileptic drug, and glycopyrrolate causing intraoperative hyperthermia. However, the literature has not reported drug interaction between topiramate and glycopyrrolate resulting in perioperative hyperthermia. The combination of a glycopyrrolate-induced rise in temperature and oligohidrosis could have resulted in hyperthermia in our patient. Thus, it is prudent to avoid glycopyrrolate in the perioperative period when patients are on topiramate.

  • A Narrative Review on Translational Research in Acute Brain Injury

    • Authors: Mahajan; Charu, Kapoor, Indu, Prabhakar, Hemanshu
      Abstract: There has been a constant endeavor to reduce the mortality and morbidity associated with acute brain injury. The associated complex mechanisms involving biomechanics, markers, and neuroprotective drugs/measures have been extensively studied in preclinical studies with an ultimate aim to improve the patients' outcomes. Despite such efforts, only few have been successfully translated into clinical practice. In this review, we shall be discussing the major hurdles in the translation of preclinical results into clinical practice. The need is to choose an appropriate animal model, keeping in mind the species, age, and gender of the animal, choosing suitable outcome measures, ensuring quality of animal trials, and carrying out systematic review and meta-analysis of experimental studies before proceeding to human trials. The interdisciplinary collaboration between the preclinical and clinical scientists will help to design better, meaningful trials which might help a long way in successful translation. Although challenging at this stage, the advent of translational precision medicine will help the integration of mechanism-centric translational medicine and patient-centric precision medicine.

  • Transient Paraplegia following Labor Epidural Analgesia

    • Authors: Prashanth; Anitha, Chakravarthy, Murali, Motiani, Priya
      Abstract: Neurological complications following labor epidural analgesia have varied outcomes. While most of the complications resolve spontaneously, a few cases may need appropriate intervention to prevent the progression of transient deficit to a permanent sequela. There have been case reports of permanent damage as well. Here we present a report of a parturient who developed flaccid paraplegia following labor epidural but recovered completely after catheter removal. Catheter-related neurological complications do occur and irritation of the anterior spinal artery causing transient paraplegia was considered as a possible etiology here.
