Recovery From Surgery for Cavernous Malformations in Children

This page was last updated on January 25th, 2023

Postoperative Orders 

  • ICU recovery: Most patients are awakened after surgery and extubated. For young children, deep-site lesions, or prolonged surgery, postoperative ICU care should be considered.
  • Advance diet as tolerated: Once the patient is alert, oral intake can be gradually resumed a few hours after the operation. Care should be taken with oral intake in cases where the brainstem or lower cranial nerves are involved.
  • Routine postoperative laboratory tests: Hemoglobin should be checked and anemia corrected.

Postoperative Morbidity
