We must ask relevant questions and answer with meaningful outcomes
Conclusions Based on the literature and our own clinical experience, ECT seems to be a safe option for the treatment of core psychopathology with comorbid MG as long as appropriate precautions are in place, particularly when choosing an anesthetic approach.
We report the successful ECT treatment of depression in an older man who had developed a subarachnoid hemorrhage after a suicide attempt by ingestion of antifreeze.
Conclusions Although it is difficult to determine the exact role of ECT in the improvement of 63% of our cases, we present a series of patients for whom pharmacotherapy, ketogenic diet, and general anesthesia otherwise did not produce an appreciable effect on status prior to implementation of ECT. These findings suggest that cases of SRSE may benefit from ECT administration.

Authors: Tarıkçı Kılıç E, Aydın G Abstract BACKGROUND: We evaluated the effects of intravenous dexmedetomidine during spinal anesthesia on hemodynamics, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, sedpain, and compared them with those of saline infusion. Sixty American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status I and II cases were randomly divided into two groups. Patients were connected to the monitor after premedication, and spinal anesthesia was administered. Sensory and motor blockades were assessed using pinprick test and Bromage scale, respectively. Group I received dexmedetomidine infusion and ...
This study aimed at analyzing the effect of the temporary removal of trigeminal dental afferents on electrogustometric thresholds (EGMt).Material and methodsEGMt were measured in 300 healthy subjects randomized in three groups, in nine loci on the right and left side (RS, LS) of the tongue surface before and after anesthesia. Group IAN (n = 56 RS,n = 44 LS) received intraosseous local anesthesia of the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN). Group MdN received mandibular nerve (MdN) block targeting IAN before its entrance into the mandibular foramen (n = 60, RS, andn = 40, LS); group MxN rece...
