Medical ethics deals with moral issues related to the daily practice of medicine . Questions about the behaviors of physicians and healthcare providers, the decision-making process, values, rights, and responsibilities, generate ethical reflection that requires a thorough understanding of philosophical concepts, religion, and jurisdictional laws.
Space-occupying lesions such as tumours, intracranial haematomas and abscesses are the most common indications for supratentorial surgery. Anaesthesia management is directed towards haemodynamic stability, facilitation of electrophysiological monitoring, and provision of optimal operative conditions and a rapid, high-quality recovery. The aim of pre-operative assessment is to identify potential anaesthetic problems and coexisting medical conditions, quantify risk and plan perioperative care. The assessment of the neurosurgical patient is identical to that of other patient groups but must additionally include a complete neurological assessment. Neuroanaesthesia is a specialty where the knowledge and skill of the anaesthetist affects both the operative field and ultimate outcome for the patient. Awake craniotomy allows the intraoperative assessment of a patient's neurological status and the identification of safe resection margins during epilepsy surgery and excision of space-occupying lesions in eloquent cortex, as well as the accurate localization of electrodes for deep brain stimulation.
The presence of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) abnormalities in patients with transient global amnesia has been an interesting phenomenologic finding. Several theories surround the occurrence of this syndrome, but little is known about its true physiopathology. We present a case of transient global amnesia after cardiac catheterization associated with migraine headache and MRI changes compatible with an ischemic insult. A discussion on potential explanations for this finding is made, as well as a review of the pertinent literature.
