FlemingAbstractObjectivePerioperative venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk can be quantified with the 2005 Caprini score. The Caprini score has previously been validated by review of the electronic medical record (EMR) in>3000 plastic surgery patients. However, the accuracy of Caprini-based risk stratification using the EMR, as opposed to face-to-face contact with the patient, remains unknown.MethodsPlastic and reconstructive surgery patients who had surgery under gener...

This study evaluated the protective effect of exogenous melatonin in rats and their offspring on the genotoxic response induced by chronic alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Twenty-five pregnant rats were divided into the following groups: NC - Negative control; ET - Rats receiving ethanol (3 g/kg/day); ET+10 M - Rats receiving ethanol (3 g/kg/day) and melatonin (10 mg/kg/day); ET+15 M - Rats receiving ethanol (3 g/kg/day) and melatonin (15 mg/kg/day); PC - Positive control (40 mg/kg cyclophosphamide). The dams and 10 pups (five males and five females) from each group were anesthetized to collect blood a...

The objective of this study was to investigate the anaesthetic management of these patients in a reference medical centre as well as to identify possible ways for improvement. To this aim, the medical records of patients with a mechanical heart valve prosthesis having given birth at our center were analysed. In particular, the characteristics of patients and deliveries, the management of anticoagulation, as well as the type of anaesthesia performed, were collected and analysed. Eighteen cases were studied and compared to 36 controls. All studied cases were being administered anticoagulants. Five of these 8 patients deliver...

ConclusionsThese data show that the positions studied did not increase the target area as defined by the length of the posterior longitudinal ligament for the purpose of neuraxial needle insertion in obstetric patients. The maneuvers studied will have limited use in improving spinal needle access in pregnant women.ResumoObjetivo do estudoO objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar se a inclinação lateral da mesa cirúrgica e a rotação do corpo de uma parturiente sentada para anestesia neuraxial aumentou o tamanho da área-alvo paramediana para a inserção da agulha neuraxial.Amb...

In conclusion, ketamine induces toxicity in human neurons through ROS-mediated activation of mitochondrial apoptotic pathway and autophagy. The harmful effects of ketamine can be ameliorated by midazolam.
