Anaesthetic management of excision of Olfactory Groove Meningioma by Bifrontal Craniotomy with Severe Mitral stenosis

Mastan Saheb Shaik, Rama Krishna Raju


The administration of anaesthesia for valvular heart diseases and perioperative care is unavoidable for every anaesthesiologist in their practice because of increased incidance of heart disease patients coming for non cardiac surgery. Patients with valvular heart diseases coming for non cardiac surgery pose many challenges to the anaesthesiologists. We managed the case of one such patient with severe mitral stenosis having olfactory groove meningioma who underwent bifrontal craniotomy without uneventfully events in the perioperative period and discharged from the hospital after 8 days in good physical health.
