Neuroblastoma Resection

Show Summary Details

Preview

Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood. Staging of neuroblastoma has both prognostic value and guides therapy and interventions. Surgical resection and chemotherapy remain the main modes of therapy, and chemotherapeutic agents have both immediate and long-term implications for the anesthetic management of these patients. Though less common, some patients may have catecholamine-induced hemodynamic instability. Thorough perioperative planning and adequate vascular access are required for these procedures. This chapter will prepare the reader to know how to assess and optimize a child with neuroblastoma for surgery, appreciate some of the difficulties of anesthesia for the child with cancer, and understand the principles of management of major blood loss during pediatric surgery.
