In major orthopaedic surgery of the lower extremities both continuous spinal anesthesia (CSA) and combined spinal epidural anesthesia (CSE) are safe and reliable anaesthesia methods. Our r...
The purpose of this study is to describe, in real-life conditions, the factors influencing the choice of anesthesia (spinal anesthesia or short general anesthesia) in outpatient surgery.
Spinal anesthesia can be challenging in patients with lumbar scoliosis or previous lumbar spine surgery. This study aims to evaluate whether the use of the ultrasound-assisted spinal anest...
The purpose of this study is to compare two short-acting local anesthetics, articaine and lidocaine, for spinal anesthesia in day-case surgery. The onset time of the sensory- and motor blo...
Hip fracture is a frequent pathology, involving elderly patients with many co-morbidities ; therefore, post-operative morbidity and mortality is high. It is reported that intra-operative h...
Spinal anesthesia (SA) is a valuable alternative to general anesthesia in infants, but laparoscopic surgery is considered a contraindication in this age group. We report 3 cases of SA for inguinal her...
Neuraxial anesthesia is often viewed as superior to general anesthesia but may delay discharge. Comparisons do not typically use multimodal analgesics and nerve blockade. Combining nerve blockade with...
Spinal anesthesia is practical and safe in infants and toddlers and prevents perioperative complications including cardiorespiratory instability and apnea. Other perioperative advantages include reduc...
This article presents a surgical solution of a lumbar disc hernia of a pregnant woman focusing on the use of right lateral positioning, spinal anesthesia which has not previously been utilized in thir...
A nicotinic antagonist that has been used as a ganglionic blocker in hypertension, as an adjunct to anesthesia, and to induce hypotension during surgery.
A syndrome associated with damage to the spinal cord above the mid thoracic level (see SPINAL CORD INJURIES) characterized by a marked increase in the sympathetic response to minor stimuli such as bladder or rectal distention. Manifestations include HYPERTENSION; TACHYCARDIA (or reflex bradycardia); FEVER; FLUSHING; and HYPERHIDROSIS. Extreme hypertension may be associated with a STROKE. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp538 and 1232; J Spinal Cord Med 1997;20(3):355-60)
Procedure in which an anesthetic is injected directly into the spinal cord.
A local anesthetic of the amide type now generally used for surface anesthesia. It is one of the most potent and toxic of the long-acting local anesthetics and its parenteral use is restricted to spinal anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1006)
A potent local anesthetic of the ester type used for surface and spinal anesthesia.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
