Controversies in neuroanaesthesia: positioning in neurosurgery



Controversies in neuroanaesthesia: positioning in neurosurgery



Annales Francaises d'Anesthesie et de Reanimation 31(10): E247-E252



Positioning of the neurosurgical patient has several features such as the existence of specific positions (i.e: sitting, prone hyperlordotic, crouching ou kneeling positions) or the range of facilities for the same surgical indications. The last point, a source of controversy, is the subject of this review. Current indications for the sitting position, positioning for lumbar spine surgery and prevention of eye injuries are successively addressed.
