Abstract
We describe a patient with infective endocarditis (IE) complicated by mycotic cerebral aneurysms (MCAs). Transarterial embolization of a larger MCA was attempted but failed. Aneurysmal clipping through craniotomy was followed by mitral valvuloplasty. During mitral valvuloplasty for IE, the low values of cerebral oxygen saturation after aneurysmal clipping were improved by continuous nimodipine infusion. We also review anesthetic management of patients with IE complicated by MCAs.
Key Words: Infective endocarditis, Mycotic cerebral aneurysm, Cerebral oxygen saturation, Nimodipine
