Antepartum surgical management of Pott’s paraplegia along with maintenance of pregnancy during second trimester

Conclusion Although this is only a single case but being the first to our knowledge, the good results highlight the point that both surgical management and maintenance of pregnancy during second trimester complicated by Pott’s paraplegia are possible, involving a multi-disciplinary team approach for optimal maternal and fetal outcome.

Authors: Su Y, Pu Y, Zhao Z, Yang X Abstract Effects of combined epidural anesthesia on the cognitive function, inflammation and stress response in the elderly liver cancer patients undergoing surgery were explored. Elderly liver cancer patients (n=100) undergoing surgery in the Second Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University from January 2015 to December 2018 were enrolled and randomly divided into observation group (n=50) and control group (n=50). In control group only conventional anesthesia was performed using 2 µg/kg fentanyl, 1.5 mg/kg propofol and 0.2 mg/kg atracurium, in addition to the proced...

Conclusions: The intraoperative use of antihypertensives such as hydralazine and sedatives such as propofol or dexmedetomidine leads to increased risk of HBEs during shoulder arthroscopic surgery under ISB in the sitting position. PMID: 32213804 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Purpose: The study aimed at investigating the effect of local infiltration analgesia (LIA) with ropivacaine on postoperative analgesia for patients undergoing ankle fracture surgery. Methods: Consecutive patients were retrospectively included and analysed according to their medical records from July 2014 to August 2018 in a tertiary hospital. Inclusion criteria were patients undergoing open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) for ankle fractures under general anaesthesia. Moreover, patients should have received intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (iPCA) or LIA + iPCA for postope...

Conclusion: This study offers insights into the trend of NSLBP to determine major research countries and institutions, core journals, pivotal authors, overall development tendency, hot topics, and research frontiers. Moreover, it will help researchers extract hidden valuable information for further study. PMID: 32215136 [PubMed - in process]

This study describes a randomized controlled trial that assesses percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) combined with a polyetheretherketone (PEEK) rod in patients with GLDH (herniation affecting 50% of the sagittal diameter of the spinal canal) and reports the 2-year follow-up outcome. Methods: In all, 243 patients were randomly assigned to undergo PELD or PELD combined with a PEEK rod by generating random numbers with a random number generator. Clinical outcome data, including the numerical rating scale (NRS), were used to assess the patients' back and leg pain, while the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) wa...

We present the case of a patient with a large, partially cystic intrathyroidal parathyroid adenoma which was initially identified as a malignant thyroid nodule. We discuss the caveats that present in these rare cases and the important clinical and histological features that aid in the final diagnosis. In the case of our patient the cytological similarities between thyroid malignant cells and parathyroid cells, in combination with the negative sestamibi scan, resulted in a more invasive surgery than that a single parathyroid adenoma would require. Clinicians need to be vigilant in terms of the similarities between parathyro...

Conclusions: For HF-WBI, doses to nTIB over the prescription predicted acute toxicities independent of breast doses. These data support inclusion of TIB as a region of interest in treatment planning and protocol design. PMID: 32214909 [PubMed]

Conclusions: According to these characteristics, tapentadol appears suitable in the treatment of severe uncontrolled chronic pain characterized by both a nociceptive and a neuropathic component, such as osteoarthritis or back pain. PMID: 32216591 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Our data suggest that peripartum exposure to neuraxial anesthesia may reduce the risk of childhood asthma primarily in males. Larger human studies and model systems with longer follow-up are required to elucidate these findings. PMID: 32212939 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
