ConclusionsThis is the first prospective study examining patient perception of pain during and after in‐office injection augmentation using a validated scale and pain descriptors with extended follow‐up. The results may offer guidance for patient counseling, consent, and treatment to improve tolerance and success. Level of Evidence4. Laryngoscope, 2018

Background: Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based method for treating specific phobias, but access to treatment is difficult, especially for children and adolescents with dental anxiety. Psychologist-guided Internet-based CBT (ICBT) may be an effective way of increasing accessibility while maintaining treatment effects. Objective: The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that psychologist-guided ICBT improves school-aged children’s and adolescents’ ability to manage dental anxiety by (1) decreasing avoidance and affecting the phobia diagnosis and (2) decreasing the dental fear and incr...

This report describes a protective period within the cardiac cycle of conscious mice when a precisely timed stimulus prevented the initiation of ventricular tachycardia caused by an earlier stimulus. In addition, we tested the hypothesis that this precisely timed pulse within the protective period prevents reperfusion‐induced ventricular tachyarrhythmias in conscious mice. Mice (n = 6) were prepared to record arterial blood pressure and the electrocardiogram. In addition, a vascular occluder was placed around the left main coronary artery, and stimulating electrodes were secured onto the left ventricle. A singl...

Abstract The purpose of this study is to investigate that dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP‐IV) released from skeletal and vascular smooth muscle can increase arteriolar diameter in a skeletal muscle vascular bed by reducing neuropeptide Y (NPY)‐mediated vasoconstriction. We hypothesized that the effect of myokine DPP‐IV would be greatest in the smallest and least in the largest arterioles. Eight male Sprague Dawley rats (age 7–9 weeks; mass, mean ± SD: 258 ± 41 g) were anesthetized and the gluteus maximus dissected in situ for intravital microscopy analysis of arteri...

AbstractLuigi Porta (1800 –1875), an Italian physician who was well known in the field of surgery, played an important role in spreading ethereal anesthesia in Europe. Moreover, he proposed an original method to administer ethereal anesthesia, the Italian method “of the bladder of pig”. This paper reminds us of the imp ortant role that this physician played in Anesthesiology.

Abstract Mechanical ventilation (MV) is routinely used in pediatric general anesthesia and critical care, but may adversely affect the cardiocirculatory system. Biomarkers are increasingly measured to assess cardiovascular status and improve clinical treatment decision‐making. As the impact of mechanical ventilation strategies on cardiovascular biomarkers in ventilated infants is largely unknown, we conducted this retrospective study in a healthy in vivo infant rat ventilation model using 14‐days old Wistar rats. We hypothesized that 2 h of mechanical ventilation with high and low positive end‐expiratory pr...
