In such procedures as the Harrington operation for idiopathic scoliosis, evaluation of spinal cord function is advisable immediately after the back is straightened. The authors have used hypnosis for this procedure, as an adjunct to anesthetic management. Patients are awakened on the table, given lower extremity tests, and are then reanesthetized. The incidence of postoperative pain and other discomfort is also reduced by hypnosis.

The case of a female patient with conversion scoliosis is described. At 24 years, the patient underwent surgery for herniated disks in the L4-L5 and L5-S1 regions and a short-time relief was achieved. At age 28, she was admitted to our department because of severe pain and antalgic posture. Because radiographs of her spine showed no findings corresponding to her symptoms, psychological examination was indicated. This revealed traumatic emotional experience in her family of origin and later also in her foster family, which unfavorably affected her married life.

In this study we compared the effects of propofol, small-dose isoflurane, and nitrous oxide (N(2)O) on cortical somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) and bispectral index (BIS) monitoring in adolescents undergoing spinal fusion. Twelve patients received the following anesthetic maintenance combinations in a randomly determined order: treatment #1: isoflurane 0.4% + N(2)O 70% + O(2) 30%; treatment #2: isoflurane 0.6% + N(2)O 70% + O(2) 30%; treatment #3: isoflurane 0.6% + air + O(2) 30%; treatment #4: propofol 120 microg . kg(-1) . min(-1) + air + O(2) 30%.
