The study gives data on how to improve the way from mechanical to spontaneous breathing in patients with weakened respiratory drive after posterior fossa tumor removal. We compared the effectiveness of two methods of weaning from mechanical ventilation in these patients. The main group consisted of 6 patients weaned from ventilator with ASV mode. The(More)
Epileptic seizures developing for the first time after a neurosurgical intervention (de novo seizures) are a challenge for choosing an optimal treatment. The pathogenesis of these seizures is often associated with factors that become inactive in the early postoperative period. These seizures can not serve the basis for diagnosing symptomatic epilepsy and(More)
UNLABELLED Main tasks of early postoperative period in patients after posterior fossa surgery are the timely and safe weaning from mechanical ventilation and extubation. For clinical assessment of the hypopharynx function we use an algorithm developed in the intensive care unit (ICU) of the Burdenko Scientific Research Institute of Neurosurgery.(More)
Introduction SAHis one of the most common pathology in neurointensive care. There is a complication of SAHcerebral vasospasm (CV), which contributes significant mortality and morbidity. CV is believed to be the origin of Delayed Cerebral Ischemia (DCI). There are different methods to diagnose DCI and CV: neurological exam, MRI, CT, TCD and angiography, but(More)
Paradoxical air embolism (PAE) is a rare life-threatening complication when air emboli enter arteries of the systemic circulation and cause their occlusion. Here, we describe a clinical case of PAE developed during neurosurgery in a patient in the sitting position. PAE led to injuries to the cerebral blood vessels, coronary arteries, and lungs, which caused(More)
