Steroids Improve Hemodynamics in Infants With Adrenal Insufficiency After Cardiac Surgery

To investigate whether steroid replacement therapy improved hemodynamics in infants after surgery for congenital heart disease only when they develop adrenal insufficiency. The authors retrospectively investigated adrenal function and evaluated hemodynamic responses to steroid replacement therapy in infants after surgery for congenital heart disease.

The use of a shunt during carotid surgery is controversial. Good results have been found in the literature both with routine use of a shunt and with no shunt during general anesthesia. Other studies report similar results with selective shunting with the support of cerebral monitors. Different experiences are found in the literature with transcranial Doppler (TCD), electroencephalography (EEG), stump pressure (SP), and somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP). To the best of our knowledge, there are no controlled studies to document the relative efficacy of these techniques.

The objective of this study was to determine whether performing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) under locoregional anesthesia reduces the risk of perioperative complications as well as mortality compared with general anesthesia and to investigate an optimal anesthetic technique generally accepted by patients and surgeons for the vascular anesthetists.

Introduction Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is the most common and severe muscle disease presenting in childhood. It is caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene, located on the X chromosome, which causes a complete absence of dystrophin protein in muscle. Becker Muscular Dystrophy (BMD) is caused by partial absence of dystrophin; this disease is less severe and less common. As an X-linked disease, both diseases almost always affect males, though some females may be affected as well. DMD and BMD have a prevalence of 1 in 5000 males, in about a 2:1 ratio.1,2 People with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy have progressive musc...
