Anesthesia research in Japan: seeds of recovery and the role of the Journal of Anesthesia.

A lateral paracarotid approach for ultrasound-guided stellate ganglion block with a linear probe.

Recent reports suggest that ultrasound-guided stellate ganglion block (SGB) is safer and more accurate than classic SGB by the using the surface anatomical landmark. However, previous reports concern the classic paratracheal approach using a small specialized curved probe, which may not be appropriate in some patients. The authors have attempted several approaches, including paratracheal, trans-thyroidal, lateral paracarotid, and lateral approaches, to find a safe and suitable method for real-time ultrasoun...

An update on the management of postoperative nausea and vomiting.

Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) and postdischarge nausea and vomiting (PDNV) remain common and distressing complications following surgery. PONV and PDNV can delay discharge and recovery and increase medical costs. The high incidence of PONV has persisted in part because of the tremendous growth in ambulatory surgery and the increased emphasis on earlier mobilization and discharge after both minor and major operations. Pharmacological management of PONV should be tailored to the patients' risk leve...

Protective multimodal analgesia with etoricoxib and spinal anesthesia in inguinal hernia repair: a randomized controlled trial.

Inguinal hernia repair is a common procedure, and can be performed under spinal anesthesia. Although adequate analgesia is crucial to postoperative recovery, the optimal protective analgesic regimen remains to be established.

Paravertebral block catheter breakage by electrocautery during thoracic surgery.

Advantages of thoracic paravertebral analgesia (TPA) include placement of the catheter closer to the surgical field; however, the catheter can become damaged during the operation. We experienced a case of intraoperative TPA catheter breakage that prompted us to perform an experiment to investigate possible causes. A 50-year-old male underwent a thoracoscopic lower lobectomy under general anesthesia with TPA via an intercostal approach. Following surgery, it was discovered that the catheter had become occlud...

Comparison of the incidences of hyponatremia in adult postoperative critically ill patients receiving intravenous maintenance fluids with 140 mmol/L or 35 mmol/L of sodium: retrospective before/after observational study.

The purpose of this study was to compare the incidences of hyponatremia in adult postoperative critically ill patients receiving isotonic and hypotonic maintenance fluids.

Airway spray efficacy of local anesthetic with fiberscope.

Population pharmacokinetics of intravenous acetaminophen in Japanese patients undergoing elective surgery.

Intravenous (i.v.) acetaminophen is administered during surgery for postoperative analgesia. However, little information is available on the pharmacokinetics of i.v. acetaminophen in Japanese patients undergoing surgery under general anesthesia.

Comparison of stroke volume measurement between non-invasive bioreactance and esophageal Doppler in patients undergoing major abdominal-pelvic surgery.

Bioreactance is a non-invasive technology for measuring stroke volume (SV) in the operating room and critical care setting. We evaluated how the NICOM(®) bioreactance device performed against the CardioQ(®) esophageal Doppler monitor in patients undergoing major abdominal-pelvic surgery, focusing on the effect of different hemodynamic interventions.

General anesthetic actions on GABAA receptors in vivo are reduced in phospholipase C-related catalytically inactive protein knockout mice.

The aim of this study was to investigate the action of general anesthetics in phospholipase C-related catalytically inactive protein (PRIP)-knockout (KO) mice that alter GABA receptor signaling.

Post-mastectomy cancer recurrence with and without a continuous paravertebral block in the immediate postoperative period: a prospective multi-year follow-up pilot study of a randomized, triple-masked, placebo-controlled investigation.

Retrospective studies have associated perioperative regional anesthesia/analgesia during mastectomy for breast cancer with a decreased incidence of cancer recurrence. However, to date, no prospective data from a randomized controlled trial have been reported. In a previous study we found that extending a single-injection paravertebral block with a multiple-day perineural local anesthetic infusion improves analgesia. This follow-up study investigates the rates of cancer recurrence for the single-injection an...

The role of Perioperative Surgical Home on health and longevity in society: importance of the surgical prehabilitation program.

Progress in difficult airway management.

Anesthetic management of abdominal radical trachelectomy for uterine cervical cancer during pregnancy.

Abdominal radical trachelectomy has been identified as a surgical option for fertility preservation in cervical cancer patients, particularly in pregnant women who strongly desire to continue their pregnancy. Since this procedure requires operating in the uterus, the hardness of the uterus can affect the ease of surgery. Generally, sevoflurane is used for anesthesia in non-obstetric surgery for pregnant women because uterine relaxation is advantageous for uterine blood flow maintenance. However, the use of ...

Point-of-care testing for coagulation function: CoaguChek(®) XS System versus standard laboratory testing in pediatric patients with normal and abnormal coagulation function.

Intraoperative abnormalities of coagulation function may occur for various reasons. In most scenarios, treatment is directed by laboratory parameters. Unfortunately, standard laboratory testing may take 1-2 h. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate a point-of-care testing device (CoaguChek(®) XS System) in pediatric patients.

Ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve stimulation for neuropathic pain after brachial plexus injury: two case reports.

Brachial plexus injury (BPI) often causes severe neuropathic pain that becomes chronic and difficult to treat pharmacologically or surgically. Here, we describe two cases of successful treatment of BPI with peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS). Both patients had experienced severe neuropathic pain after incomplete BPI for a long time (32 and 17 years) and did not response to medication, radiofrequency neuroablation, or spinal cord stimulation. After PNS using ultrasound, their pain was relieved by more than ...

In reply: Coagulopathy related to hemodilution and acidosis.

Influence of saline-based hydroxyethyl starch on umbilical cord blood electrolytes.

Hydroxyethyl starch (HES) is widely used to prevent and treat spinal anesthesia-induced hypotension during cesarean section. However, the use of saline-based HES may lead to hyperchloremia. This study aimed to clarify the effects of saline-based HES on umbilical cord chloride level at delivery. We retrospectively analyzed 93 consecutive single-pregnancy patients who underwent cesarean section with combined spinal-epidural anesthesia. The patients were divided into two groups, depending on the use of 6% HES ...

Inadvertent misplacement of the inferior vena cava.

Outcomes of physician patients after non-cardiac surgery: a registry analysis.

When physicians become patients, they may expect special privileges, extra attention from caregivers, and non-routine treatments. Consequently, physician patients may not be treated per routine-which possibly worsens care rather than improving it. We thus tested the primary hypothesis that in-hospital mortality and major complications after non-cardiac surgery are more common in physician patients than in non-physician patients.

Erratum to: Remifentanil for labor analgesia: a comprehensive review.

Cost comparison of intrathecal morphine to intravenous patient-controlled analgesia for the first 24 h post cesarean delivery: a retrospective cohort study.

Intrathecal morphine provides superior pain control for patients undergoing cesarean delivery when compared to intravenous opioid patient-controlled analgesia. However, no study has assessed the overall cost associated with each modality as a primary outcome. The aim of this study is to determine the overall cost of each modality for the first 24 h post cesarean delivery.

Continuous intravenous analgesia with fentanyl or morphine after gynecological surgery: a cohort study.

This retrospective study aims to compare postoperative pain relief offered by continuous intravenous infusion of either fentanyl or morphine.

Analysis of actual pressure point using the power flexible capacitive sensor during chest compression.

In chest compression for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the lower half of the sternum is pressed according to the American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines 2010. These have been no studies which identify the exact location of the applied by individual chest compressions. We developed a rubber power-flexible capacitive sensor that could measure the actual pressure point of chest compression in real time. Here, we examined the pressure point of chest compression by ambulance crews during CPR using a m...

Prediction of in-hospital mortality and morbidity using high-sensitivity C-reactive protein after burr hole craniostomy.

The purpose of this study was to assess whether preanesthetic laboratory values can predict in-hospital mortality and morbidity in patients who have undergone burr hole craniostomy due to chronic subdural hematoma.
