For shoulder analgesia, both ISO block and low volume scalene (LVS) block (using 5 ml of local anesthetics) are suggested to have a low incidence of hemi-diaphragmatic pariesis (HDP). ...
The primary aim of this study is to investigate the difference of the sensorial block success rate of the blocks. Secondary aim is to investigate the difference of the needle tip and shaft...
C2-C4 compartment block compared to the Costaiola block, in the control of persistent postoperative pain (somatic and neuropathic) in patients undergoing carotid thromboendarterectomy
The aim of this study is to compare between two regional analgesic techniques; caudal block and ultrasound guided quadratus lumborum block as regard degree of pain relief, accuracy of bloc...
Anorectal surgery includes pilonidal sinus, hemorrhoidectomy, anal fissure, and anal fistula operations. Various surgical and anesthetic techniques have been used to increase the level of ...
Lumbar epidural block is an effective and routinely used technique for labor pain relief, and the combined spinal-epidural block has the benefit of using lower doses of local anesthetics and rapid ons...
We recently showed that the novel combination of a superficial cervical plexus block, a suprascapular nerve block, and the lateral sagittal infraclavicular brachial plexus block (LSIB) provides an alt...
Femoral nerve block (FNB) is a commonly performed technique that has been proven to provide effective regional analgesia after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The adductor canal block...
Muscular tone that inhibits anesthetic or surgical care characterizes insufficient neuromuscular block. The incidence of insufficient neuromuscular block is unknown, therefore we developed novel elect...
Certain surgical interventions may require a deep neuromuscular block (NMB). Reversal of such a block before tracheal extubation is challenging. Because anticholinesterases are ineffective in deep blo...
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
A mitochondrial disorder featuring the triad of chronic progressive EXTERNAL OPHTHALMOPLEGIA, cardiomyopathy (CARDIOMYOPATHIES) with conduction block (HEART BLOCK), and RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA. Disease onset is in the first or second decade. Elevated CSF protein, sensorineural deafness, seizures, and pyramidal signs may also be present. Ragged-red fibers are found on muscle biopsy. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p984)
Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.
A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).
