Placing patients in dorsal lithotomy prior to induction of anesthesia confers multiple benefits including ensuring patient comfort and decreasing lower extremity nerve injury. However, it is unknown whether lithotomy positioning during induction of anesthesia increases intraabdominal pressure (IAP), theoretically introducing more risk for aspiration or difficult ventilation. Our objective was to determine if there were differences in IAP in supine, low lithotomy and high lithotomy positions.

Abstract Juvenile hyaline fibromatosis (JHF) is an unknown hereditary disorder with variable penetrance. The characterizations of this disease consist of different signs and symptoms such as multiple tumorous (tumor-like) muco-cutaneous proliferation, gingival hypertrophy, perianal lesions, articular contractures, and osteolytic lesions. A 3-year-old girl with numerous painless nodular masses on her gingival, ear and anal areas is presented in this case report. Based on characteristic histological features, the diagnosis of JHF was made. The patient underwent surgery following general anesthesia and the above area...

This article describes three incidents when inadvertent abducens nerve palsy secondary to a dental local anaesthetic occurred during removal an upper wisdom tooth, resulting in paresis of the lateral rectus muscle and diplopia. The patients were reassured and managed conservatively and there were no long ‐term complicationsDiscussionThe anatomical course of the abducens nerve from its origin to the lateral rectus muscle are discussed as well as potential mechanisms for the dental local anaesthetic to impact upon the nerve. Finally, following input from Opthalmology colleagues, recommendations for appropriate management a...

In conclusion, our results indicate that propofol inhibits autophagic cell death via the miR-20b-5p-ULKI axis and that ULK1 may be a therapeutic target for cardiovascular IR injury. PMID: 32098914 [PubMed - in process]

This article focuses on surgery and rehabilitation of extensor tendon injuries from the proximal interphalangeal joint (boutonniere) to the wrist. Relative motion flexion and extension splinting and wide awake, local anesthesia, no tourniquet surgery have revolutionized the management of these lesions, with early protected movement, sooner return to regular activities, and improved rehabilitation. This article explains and illustrates these new advances in extensor tendon management. PMID: 32097332 [PubMed - in process]
