Summary

A 5-year-old boy presents with a 1-week history of headaches, visual changes, and ataxia. A large infratentorial mass is discovered on MRI. He is scheduled for craniotomy and resection of the tumor. What are your specific concerns: pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative? How will you induce anesthesia? What are your concerns about the patient’s intra-operative positioning? What will you do to mitigate the risks? Do you plan to extubate the patient at the end of the case?
