FULL TEXT  


A Total Intravenous Anaesthesia (TIVA) protocol in a case of hereditary motor-sensory neuropathy Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease in three consecutive orthopaedic surgical procedures is described. History, physical examination and sural nerve fascicular biopsy findings are reported. Problems related to the perioperative anaesthesiological management in peripheral neuropathies are di-scussed. Propofol and fentanyl without muscle relaxants, proved to be a safe technique, fast at reaching the level of surgical anaesthesia required, manageable for maintenance and rapidly reversible.
