Conclusion: Postoperative pain up to 48 hours in both Maylard and Pfannenstiel group showed similar VAS but after 48 hours; the Maylard group showed less pain. Even though the surgical wound length in Maylard group was longer than Pfannenstiel group, numbers of cases with VAS>4 within 24 hours in Maylard were less than in Pfannenstiel group.

Authors: Chinachoti T, Pojai S, Sooksri N, Rungjindamai C Abstract Objective: To identify the risk factors of post-operative sore throat (POST) with and without hoarseness (PH) after general anesthesia. Material and Method: A retrospective cohort case-controlled study was done at Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand. Two thousand six hundred anesthetic records from between July 2013 and January 2014 were retrieved. Inclusion criteria were complete records of patients older than 18 years and elective surgery under general anesthesia longer than 30 minutes using endotracheal intubation (ETT) or...

Conclusion: The intubation time and the success rate between the McIntosh blade and GlideScope® in obese patients was not significantly different. Nevertheless, the GlideScope® provided a better laryngoscopic view than the McIntosh blade. PMID: 29911789 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Collectively, these findings indicate that dexmedetomidine may protect NSCs from ketamine-induced injury via the PI3K/Akt/GSK-3 β signaling pathway.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;47:1377 –1388

Authors: Ali JM, Miles LF, Abu-Omar Y, Galhardo C, Falter F Abstract Despite the ubiquitous use of cardioplegia in cardiac surgery, there is a lack of agreement on various aspects of cardioplegia practice. To discover current cardioplegia practices throughout the world, we undertook a global survey to document contemporary cardiopulmonary bypass practices. A 16-question, Internet-based survey was distributed by regional specialist societies, targeting adult cardiac anesthesiologists. Ten questions concerned caseload and cardioplegia practices, the remaining questions examined anticoagulation and pump-priming practi...

Authors: Yu YL, Cao DH, Chen B, Yang ZH, You KZ Abstract The purpose of this study is to observe and compare the effects of continuous femoral nerve block (cFNB) and patient-controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA) on postoperative analgesia and Th1/Th2 in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Forty-six TKA were selected and randomly divided into two groups: the cFNB group and PCIA group. Patients in the two groups all underwent general anesthesia using a laryngeal mask. In the cFNB group, the femoral nerve block and catheterization were performed after induction of general anesthesia: 0.375% ropivacain...

Child abuse includes physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and even witnessing violence. Timely recognition is important to prevent the abuse from continuing and perhaps escalating. Dental caries is related to a number of factors, such as genetic, dietary, socioeconomic, hygienic, and microbial elements. If dental health is not maintained, caries can develop. With numerous teeth affected by caries, several teeth may have to be extracted at the same time. For children, this is usually done under general anesthesia to provide a more comfortable experience and obtain cooperation from the patient.

AbstractThe ability to monitor the inspired and expired concentrations of volatile anesthetic gases in real time makes these drugs implicitly targetable. However, the end-tidal concentration only represents the concentration within the brain and the vessel rich group (VRG) at steady state, and very poorly approximates the VRG concentration during common dynamic situations such as initial uptake and emergence. How should the vaporization of anesthetic gases be controlled in order to optimally target VRG concentration in clinical practice? Using a generally accepted pharmacokinetic model of uptake and redistribution, a trans...

ConclusionSevoflurane attenuated the decrease of galactose clearance and increase of the blood lactate after reperfusion compared to propofol. Application of ischemic preconditioning was significantly protective under propofol anesthesia.
