Adenosine-induced transient asystole for intracranial aneurysm surgery: a retrospective review

“Adenosine cardiac arrest is a relatively novel method for decompression of intracranial aneurysms to facilitate clip application. With appropriate safety precautions, it is a reasonable alternative method when temporary clipping of proximal vessels is not desirable or not possible” Abstract from the Journal of Neurosurgical Anaesthesiology. 2011: Adenosine-induced transient asystole for intracranial aneurysm surgery: a retrospective… Continue reading Adenosine-induced transient asystole for intracranial aneurysm surgery: a retrospective review
