This study aimed to compare robotic and open surgery in elderly women diagnosed as having endometrial cancer, in terms of costs, survival, surgical outcome, and operating time. Methods Women 70 years or older undergoing open and robotic surgery for endometrial cancers were included consecutively before and after the introduction of robotic surgery at a tertiary center. Costs were calculated using the case-costing system, cost per patient, including the first 30 postoperative days. Relative and overall survival outcomes were obtained from the Swedish National Cancer Registry and analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier method. Su...

Authors: Ohno S, Kohjitani A, Miyata M, Tohya A, Yamashita K, Hashiguchi T, Ohishi M, Sugimura M Abstract Endothelial dysfunction is observed in several cardiovascular diseases, where endothelium-dependent vasodilation is impaired by oxidative stress. However, the time course of endothelial function during the perioperative period of a minor-to-moderate surgery, and the effects of atherosclerotic risk factors and employed general anesthetics on recovery of endothelial function, are unknown. Endothelial function of 30 patients was evaluated as the reactive hyperemia index (RHI) of reactive hyperemia peripheral arter...

A guest column by the American Society of Anesthesiologists, exclusive to KevinMD.com. If you have not yet heard about Assembly Bill (AB) 3087, a bill that was presented in the California State Assembly this spring, you should keep reading and be very concerned. This bill, introduced by Assemblymember Ash Kalra (D- San Jose), is the latest effort by special interests to unilaterally implement state control of physician practices and payments. It is also one of the most poorly conceived and dangerous bills regarding health care that we have seen in California in some time. Unfortunately, the bill’s fundament...

Authors: Lee AJ, Yabes JG, Hale N, Hrebinko RL, Gingrich JR, Maranchie JK, Fam MM, Turner I I RM, Davies BJ, Ben-David B, Jacobs BL Abstract INTRODUCTION: Multimodal analgesia is an effective way to control pain and limit opioid use after surgery. The quadratus lumborum block and paravertebral block are two regional anesthesia techniques that leverage multimodal analgesia to improve postoperative pain control. We sought to compare the efficacy of these blocks for pain management following radical cystectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of radical cystectomy patients who received b...

It is not uncommon to see air in the ventricular system and the subarachnoid space after resection of vestibular schwannoma in the semisitting position. It resolves spontaneously within 1 –2 weeks. Sometimes, it causes headache. In severe cases of air collection (tension pneumocephalus), the patients show delayed inadequate recovery from the anesthesia. In these cases, after confirmation of the presence of the tension pneumocephalus with postoperative computed tomography, we usual ly release the entrapped air, especially if it affects the conscious level of the patient by a burr hole.

Just heard an attending talking about how if you really love anesthesia, cardio and CCM the way to go would be a combined IM/Anesthesia residency (or even just anesthesia) then do a CC Fellow along with a cardiac anesthesia Fellowship. You would be a master of physio in regards to CC (due to the combined residency with IM) along with the procedures of Anesthesia. With the cardiac fellowship you can do nearly any anesthesia case and then man the CICUor even just ICU. Biggest drawback is... IM/Anes --> Cardiac --> CC?
