This study aimed to evaluate the effects of sevoflurane on working memory of rats and to characterize functional connectivity between excitatory neurons in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) during working memory performance.Methods18-month-old and 3-month-old male SD rats were implanted with a multielectrode array in the PFC. After recovery from the surgery, the aged and adult rats were divided into sevoflurane group and control group, respectively. Rats in sevoflurane group were exposed to 1 minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) or 1.5 MAC sevoflurane for two hours. At day1, 3, and 7 after exposure, the effects of sevoflurane an...

The aim of the present meta-analysis was to systematically examine the literature and to identify of the results of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the efficacy and safety of regional anesthesia (RA) versus general anesthesia (GA) for percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). An exhaustive electronic literature search of PubMed, Embase, and Web of science was performed until March 2018. Nine prospective RCTs concluding 858 patients comparing the use of RA to GA for PCNL were included. Combined results demonstrated that PCNL under RA could reduce operative time (mean difference [MD] –6.20; 95% CI –10.39...
