  • Look Inside

Two thirds of patients suffer from moderate to severe pain after frontotemporal craniotomy. We think neurosur-geons must try to reduce the postoperative pain, which may induce postoperative hypertension, restlessness, and pathological pains. To investigate how preemptive analgesia effects postoperative pain, we assessed the pain in 20 consecutive patients who underwent neck clipping for non-ruptured cerebral aneurysms of anterior circulation sys-tems by frontotemporal craniotomies.
