Abstract

Complete circulatory arrest with profound hypothermia has been an indispensable adjunct to the safe management of selected giant intracranial aneurysms. For the conduct of cardiopulmonary bypass, there are usually two kinds of methods, open and closed chest methods. We could manage one case of huge intracranial aneurysm that was successfully operated under circulatory arrest using the closed chest method, especially with percutaneous insertion of arterial and venous cannulas for cardiopulmonary bypass.
