To address the practice of various controversial issues in neuroanaesthesia practice in India, a questionnaire survey was conducted during the Annual Conference of Indian Society of Neuroanaesthesiology and Critical Care (ISNACC), held in Hyderabad this year in February 2008. The aim of the survey was to assess the views of the neuroanaesthetists on these issues and its influence in their clinical practice. A simple questionnaire comprising of eight questions was prepared related to the various controversies in neuroanaesthesia. Participants were asked to fill the questionnaire and return before the end of conference. All the questionnaires were distributed in hand and collected personally. The response rate was 66.25% from the nearly 160 delegates. The response was received from nearly an equal number of practitioners, both in the government and corporate sectors. Most of the respondents shared a neutral opinion on the controversies in neuroanaesthesia. New challenges are being faced by anaesthetists with evolution of neurosurgical practice. Various controver­sies have led to more research in this field. Although the awareness exists among Indians, the practice continues at many centres. Multi-centric trials to address such issues may prove beneficial.
