Cerebral protection during aortic arch surgery is an anesthetic challenge, since the surgical procedures for aortic arch aneurysm involve an interruption of cerebral blood flow. We report a successfully managed case of aortic arch aneurysm repair with antegrade selective cerebral perfusion (SCP) during TCA (total circulatory arrest) using a transcranial oximeter, cerebral oxygenation was monitored during surgery. Although at the beginning of TCA a decrease in the regional cerebral oxygen saturation was observed, this was soon recovered by SCP. Except for the short period of TCA without SCP, regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) value were well maintained during surgery.
Key Words: cerebral protection; regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2); selective antegrade cerebral perfusion (SCP); transcranial oximeter; total circulatory arrest (TCA)
