Certain kind of neurosurgical procedures require intraoperative alertness of the patient, for example to perform speech tests during brain tumor resection. With respect to anaesthesia, it is therefore required that the patient is asleep during the beginning and the end of the procedure, however fully awake in between. To do so, the anaesthetic propofol is used and an accurate knowledge of its pharmacokinetic and -dynamic (pk/pd) parameters is required to optimally control anaesthesia. However, diverse pk/pd-parameter sets have been described in the literature.
The aim of the study is to investigate whether the pk/pd model proposed by Marsh et al. or by Schnider et al. more accurately describe the pk/pd of propofol during awake craniotomy.

This paper explicates the impact of tumor capillary permeability for glioma WHO grades 2 to 4 on brain-penetrant drug entry and distribution within the tumor and the brain adjacent to tumor (leading e...
Intraoperative ultrasound (iUS) imaging is commonly used to support brain tumor operation. The tumor segmentation in the iUS images is a difficult task and still under improvement because of the low s...
Cognitive investigations in brain tumor patients have mostly explored episodic memory without differentiating between encoding, storage, and retrieval deficits. The aim of this study is to offer insig...
Sigma-1 receptors (Sig1R) are highly expressed in various human cancer cells and hence imaging of this target with positron emission tomography (PET) can contribute to a better understanding of tumor ...
Despite much effort to treat glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the median survival of patients has not significantly improved. The high rate of tumor recurrence after tumor resection and the blood-brain ...
Tissue NECROSIS in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES, the CEREBELLUM, and the BRAIN STEM. Brain infarction is the result of a cascade of events initiated by inadequate blood flow through the brain that is followed by HYPOXIA and HYPOGLYCEMIA in brain tissue. Damage may be temporary, permanent, selective or pan-necrosis.
Localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. This frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (HYPOXIA, BRAIN). Prolonged ischemia is associated with BRAIN INFARCTION.
Antineoplastic agent especially effective against malignant brain tumors. The resistance which brain tumor cells acquire to the initial effectiveness of this drug can be partially overcome by the simultaneous use of membrane-modifying agents such as reserpine, calcium antagonists such as nicardipine or verapamil, or the calmodulin inhibitor, trifluoperazine. The drug has also been used in combination with other antineoplastic agents or with radiotherapy for the treatment of various neoplasms.
Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.
Bleeding within the brain as a result of penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Traumatically induced hemorrhages may occur in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRUM; BRAIN STEM (see BRAIN STEM HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC); and CEREBELLUM.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
