Abstract

Hypothermia and cardiopulmonary bypass has rarely been used for difficult lesions of the brain such as giant aneurysms and hemangioblastoma of the brainstem. We report a case of huge recurrent angioblastic meningioma operated under the profound hypothermia and cardiopulmonary bypass. We reviewed the complications related to hypothermia and cardiopulmonary bypass for brain lesions.
