Anesthesia at Linac-stereotactic radiosurgery children with vascular malformations of the brain
Keywords:intracranial tumors, children, stereotactic radiosurgery, anesthesia
Objective: To determine the optimal management of anesthesia during stereotactic surgery of vascular malformations of the brain in children older than 3 years.
Materials and Methods: The stereotactic radiosurgery was carried out for two pediatric patients with vascular malformations of brain on linear accelerator «Trilogy» and Brain Lab stereotactic system with anesthesia.
Results and Conclusions: The method of stereotactic radiosurgery can be used for the treatment of vascular malformations of the brain in children older than 3 years requiring anesthesia. Anesthesia with spontaneous breathing with using the local anesthesia as necessary, can be used for stereotactic radiosurgery in children older than 3 years. Propofol is optimal agent for the anesthesia on radiosurgery, considering minimally invasive procedure, variety of the pain loading during procedure and repeated transporting.
