The steep (40 degrees) Trendelenburg position optimizes surgical exposure during robotic prostatectomy. The goal of the current study was to investigate the combined effect of this position and CO 2 pneumoperitoneum on the cerebral hemodynamics during these procedures.
These data suggest that the cerebral microcirculation and cerebral autoregulation remain preserved in this clinical setting.
