Anaesthesia for Day Care Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery is a technology driven medical speciality. The introduction of steroids in neurosurgery along with development of advanced imaging and localization techniques such as functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging, operation theatre technology, operating microscope, microsurgical techniques and neurological corridors have all contributed to the growth and acceptability of day care neurosurgery. The modern era of minimally invasive approaches, image guided navigation, retractor-less surgery, neuroprotective adjuvants, increasing dependence on peri-operative neurophysiological monitoring and improvements in anaesthesia have resulted in faster, simpler and safer surgery with good perioperative recovery and better outcomes.
