Manitol versus solución salina hipertónica en neuroanestesia It appears that a low dose of mannitol acts as a renal vasodilator while high-dose mannitol is. Randomized, controlled trial on the effect of a 20% mannitol solution and a % saline/6% dextran solution on increased intracranial pressure. Introduction Hyperosmolar therapy with mannitol or hypertonic saline (HTS) is the primary medical management strategy for elevated intracranial pressure (ICP).

The reflection coefficient is a term used to describe the relative impermeability of each agent with respect to the blood brain barrier. Andrew Torre-Healy 1 Estimated H-index: Conflict of interest The authors have no conflicts of interest to declare. The authors concluded that when the same osmotic load is administered, mannitol and HTS are equally effective in treating intracranial hypertension in patients with severe TBI.

At present there is no pharmaco-economic analysis of mannitol and HTS solutions. Interstitial oedema results from altered CSF absorption and increased transependymal CSF flow, as is the case in hydrocephalus, for example. Hipeertonica well-designed trials were found, with patients and episodes of elevated ICP. Osmole gap in neurologic-neurosurgical intensive care unit: Curr Opin Anaesthesiol, 19pp.

Dose-response relationship of mannitol and intracranial pressure: Drobin D, Hahn RG. Its normal value, calculation, and relationship with mannitol serum concentrations. Two years later, Toung et al. Fortunately, this devastating condition has been rarely observed in this setting. The advantage of HTS in this setting is maintenance of blood pressure with low volume resuscitation and thus avoiding potentially iatrogenic ICP increase. They asked about the agent used most frequently, dose, and hipertoonica method.

The benefit of HTS relative to long-term neurological out-comes compared to that of mannitol is yet unclear.

The coefficient of mannitol is 0. The authors concluded that when given as a second tier therapy for elevated ICP, HTS is associated with a significant improvement in brain oxygen, CPP and cardiac output in patients with severe TBI and intracranial hypertension refractory to previous mannitol administration.


A new therapy of post-trauma brain oedema based on haemodynamic principles for brain volume regulation. The baseline characteristics between groups were similar.

Cerebral effects of isovolemic hemodilution with hypertonic saline solution. Of 4 prospective randomized studies, 3 recommend HTS as a safe alternative to produce cerebral relaxation in patients with supratentorial tumours.

Cerebral janitol and metabolic effects of equi-osmolar doses mannitol and They showed a low potential of complications with the use of HHS in the clinical setting during almost one decade.

Pressure changes in the cerebrospinal fluid following intravenous injection of solutions of various concentrations. From tothe Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia was published every three months.

Mannitol versus hypertonic saline solution in neuroanaesthesia

Hypertonic saline in critical care: Experimental alteration of brain bulk. HTS can cause a rapid increase in serum sodium concentrations, raising concern for central pontine myelinolysis. In most cases, it manifol usually mixed. To accomplish this, a lower limit for CPP is often tolerated as low as 50 mmHg.

Effects of hypertonic saline solution and mannitol in acute intracranial hypertension in rabbits

There are multiple studies that show that HTS – particularly N Engl J Med,pp. As mentioned above, ischemia dysregulates cell homeostasis by decreasing available ATP molecules.

Efficacy and safety of hypertonic saline solutions in the treatment of severe head injury. InSchimetta published a 9-year review on the safety and adverse reactions of hyperosmolar-hyperoncotic solutions HHS containing 7. Data availability is limited because of small sample sizes, inconsistent methods and few prospective randomized comparative studies, although both agents are effective and have a reasonable risk profile for the treatment of cerebral oedema and IH.

Resuscitation manitool hypertonic saline-dextran reduces serum sooucion levels and correlates with outcome in severe traumatic brain injury patients. Effects of single, repeated and massive mannitol infusion in the dog: In contrast, those who preferred mannitol mentioned longer experience with the drug and ease of use because no central venous access is required.


Mannitol or hypertonic saline in the setting of traumatic brain injury: What have we learned?

There is no Class I evidence showing superiority of one agent over another in the management of cerebral oedema and IH from different aetiologies in critically ill patients. So this raises the question of looking at each component of a traditional ICP algorithm to determine the relative benefit. Oedema following an ischaemic stroke begins within days, peaks within days, and lasts up to two weeks. Global brain water increases after experimental focal cerebral ischemia: Ultimately, judgment and careful dissection of individual clinical scenario in the context of a rigorous interpretation of the existing literature will be needed to best serve the needs of our patient.

After inducing haematomas, they measured ICP, cerebral perfusion pressure, cerebral oxygen extraction and oxygen consumption, as well as CBF in regions close to the haematoma and distant to it.

Conclusion La disponibilidad de los datos es imitada por las muestras pequenas, metodos inconsistentes y pocos estudios aleatorizados prospectivos comparativos, y aunque ambos agentes son eficaces y tienen un perfil de riesgo razonable para el tratamiento del edema cerebral y en la HIC, en la actualidad varios ensayos demuestran que la SSH podria ser mas eficaz en la reduccion de la PIC y por hipertonicca tiempo.
