BACKGROUND: Percutaneous vertebroplasty (PV) with monitored anesthesia care (MAC) is a growing trend. Without adequate sedation, patient movement can affect and even interrupt the procedure during MAC. The aim of this study was to compare the performance of the auditory-evoked potential (AEP) index and the Observer Assessment of Alertness/Sedation (OAA/S) scale as indicators of depth of sedation in patients undergoing PV.
METHODS: Two hundred and twenty patients in ASA II to III, aged 43 to 92 years, undergoing elective PV with MAC, were randomly allocated to the AEP or the OAA/S group (n=110 each). Initially, all patients received 1 μg/kg of fentanyl and 0.02 mg/kg of midazolam intravenously and sedation with a target-controlled infusion (TCI) of propofol at a target concentration of 1.2 μg/mL. The concentration for the propofol TCI was adjusted in 0.2 μg/mL increments or decrements according to the A-Line autoregressive index (AAI) or the OAA/S scale. A blinded study nurse recorded the measured parameters.
RESULTS: Some parameters were significantly different in the AEP group compared with the OAA/S group: lower AAI, lower OAA/S score, lower respiratory rates, and higher end-tidal carbon dioxide pressure were noted from local anesthetic infiltration to bone cement implantation, fewer patients whose movements affected the procedure (10 vs. 36, respectively, P<0.001), and more adjustments of TCI (twice vs. once, respectively, P<0.006). The surgeons' satisfaction was greater for the AEP group than for the OAA/S group.
CONCLUSIONS: TCI propofol with AEP monitoring can provide less patient movement, better sedation, and higher surgeon satisfaction in patients during prone-position PV procedures than can TCI propofol with OAA/S monitoring.
