Patients with respiratory disease have an increased risk of developing complications perioperatively. The use of regional anesthesia decreases this risk with better postoperative outcome. ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the accuracy and reliability of intra-operative TEE after the induction of anesthesia when assessing proximal thoracic aorta diameters in a cohort of a...
This study would compare acute and chronic postsurgical pain in patients underwent thoracic surgery with different anesthesia and analgesia methods, and explore the influencing factors.
Video assisted thoracic surgery utilizes small instruments to perform complicated thoracic surgeries. This minimally invasive technique leaves small wounds thus facilitate recovery. Tradit...
A new conceptual regional anesthesia the PECs II block (modified pectoral and serratus nerves block) has been described for pain control after thoracic surgery, one of the indications to p...
Driving pressure (plateau minus end-expiratory airway pressure) is a target in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome, and is proposed as a target during general anesthesia for patients wit...
Herein, we report the case of a 49-year-old man with a potentially fatal allergy to propofol and remifentanil who underwent awake minimally invasive mitral valve surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass us...
Endotracheal/general anesthesia is one of the most commonly used anesthetic techniques when performing thoracic and lumbar surgeries. However, spinal and epidural (non-general) anesthesia have been in...
It is well known that surgery provokes an inflammatory response. However, the induced inflammatory response to laparoscopic compared with open surgery under combined anesthesia has never been compared...
We have noted that patients frequently complain of thoracic or low back pain after undergoing an endovascular aortic repair, which we speculated was caused by the indwelling stent.
Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
Surgery performed on the thoracic organs, most commonly the lungs and the heart.
Inhalation anesthesia where the gases exhaled by the patient are rebreathed as some carbon dioxide is simultaneously removed and anesthetic gas and oxygen are added so that no anesthetic escapes into the room. Closed-circuit anesthesia is used especially with explosive anesthetics to prevent fires where electrical sparking from instruments is possible.
The outer margins of the thorax containing SKIN, deep FASCIA; THORACIC VERTEBRAE; RIBS; STERNUM; and MUSCLES.
Epidural anesthesia administered via the sacral canal.
