Alleviation of intracranial air using carbon dioxide gas during intraventricular tumor resection.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES/PURPOSES Postoperative vomiting occurs more frequently in patients after intraventricular surgery than after other intracranial surgeries. This has been attributed to intracranial air. Carbon dioxide gas (CO2) has properties beneficial to the treatment of some medical disorders, displaying a higher specific gravity and more rapid absorption into… (More)
