However, whether HBO-PC can ameliorate cognitive deficits induced by isoflurane, and the possible mechanism by which it may exert its effect, has not yet been clarified. In the present study, middle-aged mice were exposed to isoflurane anesthesia (1.5 minimal alve...
ConclusionThe AEGEA Vapor System is a safe effective and minimally invasive option for performing in-office endometrial ablation. under minimal anesthesia for the purpose of treating women who suffer from HMB.
ConclusionsSBES is safe and effective, with minimal morbidity. SBES has the potential advantages of shorter operative time, reduced anesthesia, and reduced hospital time, which can benefit patients, surgeons, and health care systems.Patient summarySimultaneous bilateral endoscopic surgery is an effective treatment with low complication rates for bilateral urolithiasis. This innovative and complicated procedure should be performed in high-volume centers by experienced surgeons.
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...
