In conclusion, the double-level RLB could delay the time to initial administration of analgesics, but this technique may be insufficient to reduce the analgesic requirement within the 12-hour postoperative period following breast cancer surgery. PMID: 30012909 [PubMed - in process]
Researchers have designed a drug that may soon be a safe, effective alternative to opioids for treating moderate-to-severe chronic pain.

Abstract Laryngeal trauma from prolonged endotracheal intubation occurs in patients of all ages. Most changes are superficial and heal quickly. Injuries that are found consistently during intubation include nonspecific changes, edema, granulation tissue, ulceration, and othermiscellaneous injuries. In thispapersignificant, severe, and lasting trauma of the larynx has been classified on thebasis of theknown factors in pathogenesis, observations made atendoscopy, and photographic documentation. This classification has required introduction of new descriptive terminology: "tongues of granulation tissue," &q...
The objective of this meta-analysis was to assess the operation success rates of extracting maxillary teeth without palatal injection.Study DesignPubMed, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, SinoMed, and the references of the identified full-text articles were searched for relevant studies, published until June 2017, that met the eligibility criteria. Experimental data were combined by meta-analysis by using RevMan 5.3 software.ResultsSeven randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis. Compared with the control groups (given the recommended combination of buccal and palatal anesthesia, also known as routine infilt...
ConclusionThe significant prevalence of POAG among OSA sufferers suggests need for preoperative consultations from an ophthalmologist to determine eye health and possibly an anesthesiologist to avoid potential vision loss.

Conclusions: Adding tramadol to a caudal bupivacaine block can attenuate the pro-inflammatory cytokine response, Cortisol, and CRP in children undergoing lower abdominal surgery. PMID: 30013735 [PubMed]
Conclusions: Combined thoracic epidural anesthesia could induce less blood loss during operations. PCEA showed better postoperative analgesia and greater patient satisfaction than PCIA. Thus, PCEA may be a more useful analgesic method than PICA after LARP. PMID: 30013733 [PubMed]
