Rapid Ventricular Pacing (RVP) has been described for flow reduction in elective surgery of unruptured intracranial aneurysms. Our patient had a ruptured anterior inferior cerebellar artery aneurysm unfavorable for endovascular treatment. Surgical approach necessitated the semi-sitting position and RVP due to complicated proximal control. Transesophageal echocardiography during anesthesia induction revealed an atrial septal defect. Intraoperative RVP achieved effective hypotension and facilitated successful aneurysm occlusion. Though extensive cardiac workup was not possible in this non-elective surgery, no arrhythmias or complications (i.e., paradoxical air embolism) occurred. This case demonstrates a safe and effective execution of RVP in the semi-sitting position for surgical clip reconstruction surgery of a ruptured intracranial aneurysm in a patient exhibiting an atrial septal defect.
