Abstract

Although Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKS) is commonly performed under local anesthesia, general anesthesia is sometimes required. The authors previously reported a remote-controlled patient management system consisting of propofol-based general anesthesia with a target-controlled infusion (TCI) that we designed for pediatric GKS. However, a commercially available propofol TCI system has age and weight limitations (<16 years and <30 kg). We examined a manually controlled regimen of propofol appropriate for pediatric GKS.
