Figure 2: Patient positioning and airway management during O-arm implantation of DBS.

Mentions: The Medtronic O-arm is a portable CT scanner that can be positioned around the patient's head throughout the procedure to provide intraoperative 3-dimensional confirmation of electrode tip locations, see Fig. 2 [57]. With this technique the patient can be placed under general anesthesia with an endotracheal tube. Upon arrival to the operating room the patient is intubated and, after securing the airway, the stereotactic frame may be placed. Like the awake technique, it is important to maintain tight blood pressure control during the procedure as well as during emergency in order to prevent intracranial bleeding.
