Objective: Giant cerebral aneurysm surgery carries a high risk for intra-operative ischemic insults, especially if multiple (and long) periods of temporary clipping are necessary to achieve final aneurysm clipping. Optimal intra-operative cerebral protection remains an open and controversial question.[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
