The propofol/remifentanil infusion is titrated during incision, muscle dissection, and craniotomy so that the patient remains comfortably sedated and breathing comfortably. After the bone flap is removed, all sedatives are discontinued and the patient is allowed to wake fully prior to opening the dura, as emergence can otherwise cause coughing and brain herniation, particularly for tumors with significant mass effect/edema. In addition, a 30-gauge needle is used to administer local to the dura along the middle meningeal artery.

Adapted from De Benedictis et al. [42] typically resolve within a few months postoperatively [14, 15]. As with M1, the SMA also demonstrates somatotopy: leg representation is most posterior, face is most anterior, and the arm region is located in between [14]. The frontal eye field (FEF) of the frontal lobe is located within the middle frontal gyrus just anterior to dPMC and is involved in saccadic eye movement. Lesions of the FEF impair voluntarily contralateral gaze, and DCS may elicit conjugate eye movements toward the contralateral side [16, 17].
