  33. 36. Anesthetic Management of the Patient Receiving Unfractionated Heparin during cardiac surgery Regional Anesthesia and pain medicine ,Vol 29,No 2 Suppl1 (March-April),2004:pp1-11 <ul><li>Currently, insufficient data and experience are available to determine if the risk of neuraxial hematoma is increased when combining neuraxial techniques with the full anticoagulation of cardiac surgery. </li></ul><ul><li>Combining neuraxial techniques with intraoperative anticoagulation with heparin during cardiac surgeries seems acceptable with the following cautions: </li></ul><ul><li>● Avoid the technique in patients with other coagulopathies. </li></ul><ul><li>● Heparin administration should be delayed for 1 hour after needle placement. </li></ul><ul><li>● Indwelling neuraxial catheters should be removed 2 to 4 hours after the </li></ul><ul><li>last heparin dose and the patient’s coagulation status is evaluated; </li></ul><ul><li>● Reheparinization should occur 1 hour after catheter removal. </li></ul>
  34. 37. <ul><li>● Monitor the patient postoperatively to provide early detection of motor blockade and consider use of minimal concentration of local anesthetics to enhance the early detection of a spinal hematoma. </li></ul><ul><li>● Although the occurrence of a bloody or difficult neuraxial needle placement may increase risk, there are no data to support mandatory cancellation of a case. </li></ul><ul><li>● Direct communication with the surgeon and a specific risk-benefit decision about proceeding in each case is warranted. </li></ul><ul><li>● Antiplatelet medications, low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) and oral anticoagulants may increase the risk of bleeding complications for patients receiving standard heparin. </li></ul>

Recommendations: Limiting, Diagnosing, and Treating Neuraxial Injury ASRA practice Advisory on neurologic complications in regional anesthesia and pain medicine,Regional Anesthesia and pain medicine,Vol 33,No 5(september-october)2008:pp4040-415 <ul><li>• Epidural anesthetic procedures using the thoracic approach are neither safer nor riskier than using the lumbar approach. (Class I) </li></ul><ul><li>Surgical positioning and specific space-occupying extradural lesions (e.g., severe spinal stenosis, epidural lipomatosis, ligamentum flavum hypertrophy, or ependymoma) have been associated with temporary or permanent spinal cord injury in conjunction with neuraxial regional anesthetic techniques. </li></ul><ul><li>Awareness of these conditions should prompt consideration of risk vs. benefit when contemplating neuraxial regional anesthetic techniques. (Class II) </li></ul>
  36. 39. <ul><li>Diagnosis and treatment </li></ul><ul><li> • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the diagnostic modality of choice for suspected neuraxial lesions. Computed tomography (CT) should be used for rapid diagnosis if MRI is not immediately unavailable, especially when neuraxial compression injury is suspected. </li></ul><ul><li>(Class I) </li></ul><ul><li>• Diagnosis of a compressive lesion within or near the neuraxis demands immediate neurosurgical consultation for consideration of decompression. (Class I) </li></ul>
