Noradrenaline, Serotonin, GABA, and Glycine in Cerebrospinal Fluid during Labor Pain: A Cross-Sectional Prospective Study.

Noradrenaline, Serotonin, GABA, and Glycine in Cerebrospinal Fluid during Labor Pain: A Cross-Sectional Prospective Study. Pain Res Manag. 2017;2017:2752658 Authors: Chalermkitpanit P, Thonnagith A, Engsusophon P, Charuluxananan S, Honsawek S Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The inhibitory pathways that play a role in spinal modulation include local interneurons and descending control. Clinical data regarding the role of these pathways in acute pain is lacking. Accordingly, the aim of this study was to evaluate cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of noradrenaline, serotonin, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and glycine in parturients with labor pain compared to those without labor pain. METHODS: One hundred term uncomplicated pregnant women receiving spinal anesthesia for cesarean section were enrolled in this prospective cross-sectional study. CSF noradrenaline, serotonin, GABA, and glycine levels were analyzed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Labor pain score was assessed by numerical rating scale. RESULTS: Median CSF serotonin concentration in parturients with labor pain was significantly lower than in those without pain (p

Publication date: Available online 20 August 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Sophie A. Kimber CraigAbstractRegional anaesthetic techniques are the most frequently used type of anaesthetic used for caesarean deliveries. They have a better safety profile than general anaesthesia in the pregnant woman. The choice of whether to use a spinal, epidural or combined spinal–epidural technique will depend on patient and surgical factors. Particular care is required in those receiving therapeutic anticoagulation or with clotting abnormalities. Women should be provided with information regarding th...

AbstractObjectivesFew studies have investigated the prophylactic efficacy of dexmedetomidine (DEX) in postpartum depressive symptoms (PDS). A randomized, double ‐blind, placebo‐controlled trial was conducted to investigate whether the administration of DEX, immediately after delivery and for patient controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA), can attenuate PDS.MethodsSix hundred parturients scheduled for elective caesarean delivery under spinal anesthesia were randomly allocated into the Control group (infusion with 0.9%normal saline after delivery and PCIA with sufentanil) and the DEX group (DEX infusion 0.5ug.kg‐1 aft...

CONCLUSION: Meeting the recommended levels of physical activity during pregnancy is associated with less activity limitation related to LBP during pregnancy. However, physical activity levels, either before or during pregnancy, were not associated with pain intensity, care seeking, and postpartum LBP. PMID: 31387084 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: All 3 outcome measures demonstrated good responsiveness. MICs were derived for each instrument. The PGQ at 8 weeks post-randomisation was identified as an appropriate outcome measure for pregnancy-related LBP/PGP since it is specific to these pain presentations and assesses both activity limitations and symptoms. The NRS is an efficient, shorter alternative. PMID: 31392990 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This article reviews the evidence regarding the clinical detection and diagnosis of SIJ movement dysfunction. In particular, it questions the continued use of assessing movement dysfunction despite mounting evidence undermining the biological plausibility and subsequent treatment paradigms based on such diagnoses. Clinicians are encouraged to align their assessment methods and explanatory models to contemporary science to reduce the risk of their diagnoses and choice of intervention negatively affecting clinical outcomes.

(Reg Anesth Pain Med. 2016;41(6):773–775) This case report described the challenges posed by parturients with Fontan circulation, including the treatment for congenital heart disease and anticoagulation management during cesarean delivery performed under neuraxial anesthesia. Pregnancy, in general, increases the risk of venous thromboembolism and this is a common complication in patients with Fontan circulation. In this case, the 30-year-old parturient with Fontan circulation developed a neuraxial hematoma four days after her cesarean delivery performed with continuous spinal anesthesia. Morbid obesity and superfici...

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.
