  • Introduction

    Neurosurgical cases have a plethora of airway problems ranging from raised intracranial pressure, hydrocephalus, Cushing's disease, Cushing syndrome, acromegaly, severe micrognathia, acute & chronic subdural hematoma, epidural hematoma, compromised spinal cord, ankylosing spondylitis, fracture and dislocations of the odontoid and upper cervical vertebrae, immobile cervical spine because of fixed cervical vertebrae and hard collar application. Such challenging cases need to be managed carefully as far as airway management is concerned to prevent any catastrophic sequelae. The airway of such cases can be managed employing direct laryngoscopy, awake fiber-optic intubation, retrograde intubation or the use of special appliances such as LMA, fast track LMA, Bullard laryngoscope, McCoy laryngoscope. In some cases, however elective tracheostomy is indicated. This issue of the journal focuses on the airway management of such complicated and challenging cases in neurosurgery.
    Aims and Scope:
    1. Neurosurgery
    2. Raised intracranial pressure
    3. Traumatic brain injury
    4. Cervical vertebrae fracture and dislocation
    5. Endocrine abnormalities
    6. Airway management
