"Defasciculation" with metocurine prevents succinylcholine-induced increases in intracranial pressure.


In order to determine whether a small, "defasciculating" dose of metocurine could prevent increases in intracranial pressure (ICP) induced by succinylcholine (Sch), the authors studied 12 patients (ages 25-79 yr) undergoing craniotomy for excision of malignant supratentorial gliomas. After insertion of a subarachnoid bolt for ICP monitoring and a radial… (More)
