Reply to: caval aorta index as a predictor of hypotension after spinal anaesthesia.

Pre-operative ultrasonographic evaluation of inferior vena cava collapsibility index and caval aorta index as new predictors for hypotension after induction of spinal anaesthesia: A prospective observational study: erratum.

Combined spinal-epidural versus spinal anaesthesia for caesarean section.

Single-shot spinal anaesthesia (SSS) and combined spinal-epidural (CSE) anaesthesia are both commonly used for caesarean section anaesthesia. Spinals offer technical simplicity and rapid onset of nerv...

The Crystalloid Co-Load: Clinically as Effective as Colloid Preload for Preventing Hypotension from Spinal Anaesthesia for Caesarean Delivery.

Colloid preloading diminishes post-spinal hypotension. However, whether colloid preloading is superior to crystalloid co-loading is uncertain. In this retrospective study, we compared the effects of a...

Prophylactic phenylephrine and fluid co-administration to reduce spinal hypotension during elective caesarean section in a resource-limited setting: a prospective alternating intervention study.

Spinal hypotension is a common and clinically important problem during caesarean section. Current consensus recommendations for resource-rich settings suggest the use of a titrated phenylephrine infus...

Spinal Anaesthesia and Severe Preeclampsia

The use of spinal anesthesia in pre-eclamptic pregnant woman is of considerable benefit, as these patients present particular hazards with general anaesthesia, such as concerns for rapid a...

Use of Perfusion Index Change as a Predictor of Hypotension During Propofol Sedation in Adult Patients Undergoing Lower Extremity Orthopedic Surgery Under Spinal Anesthesia: A Prospective Observational Study

This observational study is to evaluate Perfusion Index Change as a Predictor of Hypotension During Propofol Sedation in Adult Patients Undergoing Lower Extremity Orthopedic Surgery Under ...

Perfusion Index Predicts Post-spinal Hypotension in Obese Parturients for Cesarean Section

Hypotension is a common adverse effect of spinal anesthesia during caesarean section especially in obese patients. The aim of this study is to find out the correlation between baseline PI...

Focussed Echocardiography to Detect Preoperative Hypovolemia and Left Ventricular Dysfunction as a Predictor of Post-Induction Hypotension

This is an observational study to evaluate the role of a Bed side Focus assessed Transthoracic Echocardiography (FATE) in identifying the patients at a potential risk of developing hypoten...

Non Invasive Haemodynamics in Neuraxial Anaesthesia Hypotension

Spinal (or neuraxial) anaesthesia is still considered the first choice technique for elective Caesarean section as simple, quick, reliable and cheap. However, this anaesthetic method can b...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.

The portion of the descending aorta proceeding from the arch of the aorta and extending to the DIAPHRAGM, eventually connecting to the ABDOMINAL AORTA.

Ischemia or infarction of the spinal cord in the distribution of the anterior spinal artery, which supplies the ventral two-thirds of the spinal cord. This condition is usually associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS of the aorta and may result from dissection of an AORTIC ANEURYSM or rarely dissection of the anterior spinal artery. Clinical features include weakness and loss of pain and temperature sensation below the level of injury, with relative sparing of position and vibratory sensation. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1249-50)


Surgical venous shunt between the portal and systemic circulation to effect decompression of the portal circulation. It is performed primarily in the treatment of bleeding esophageal varices resulting from portal hypertension. Types of shunt include portacaval, splenorenal, mesocaval, splenocaval, left gastric-caval (coronary-caval), portarenal, umbilicorenal, and umbilicocaval.
