PURPOSE We investigated the feasibility of achieving regional hypothermia of the spinal cord with an infusion of iced (4 degrees C) saline solution administered into an epidural catheter while monitoring cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) temperature in eight patients undergoing thoracic or thoracoabdominal aneurysm resection. METHODS As part of the anesthetic management, an epidural catheter was placed at T11-12, and a subarachnoid thermistor catheter was placed at L3-4. Approximately 30 minutes… CONTINUE READING
